Tell us a little (or a lot) about your home and the people who live there: I work as a freelance writer and also run a lifestyle blog, Amtisstory, mostly about home decor and wellness tips (and also a large amount of Netflix reviews!). I was born in France but I’m half Vietnamese, half Moroccan.
My parents’ culture is very important to me and I’ve tried to incorporate some features in my apartment. I’ve been living in Paris for six years, including three years in this beautiful studio apartment. It is located in my favorite Paris area: the 11th arrondissement, so vibrant and inspiring for me.
Describe your home’s style in 5 words or less: Peaceful, meaningful, and cozy.
What is your favorite room and why? It is technically one big room, and honestly I love it all. It is truly my home sweet home, which I was very thankful for during the lockdown.
What’s the last thing you bought (or found!) for your home? Actually it’s been a long time since I didn’t buy anything for my home. I’m a huge fan of DIY: knitting, crocheting, macrame… I did many items such as coasters or wall decor myself. I think it brings something very personal and unique!
Any advice for creating a home you love? Take your time for furniture, but listen to your heart for home decor accessories. Sometimes we take too much time thinking about style, and we end up without doing anything. So, if there’s a piece of decor like a pillow or a frame that you truly love and makes you smile, go for it!
