About Dabito

Some people just have a knack for lighting, staging, and composition. Some become photographers. Some become interior designers. But some—like Dabito, the creator of the blog Old Brand New—become both. While working as a designer in Los Angeles, Dabito began to blog about his adventures thrifting at shops around the city, finding incredible pieces to fill his impeccable apartment. He also posted his photos to Instagram and, with an overwhelmingly positive reaction, he was soon able to launch his own design and photography studio. His 135K+ followers continue to find home decorating inspiration from his bright, colorful interiors, and even more will get a peek in an upcoming feature in Better Homes & Gardens.
