It is only me and my two year old daughter. Toddlers are messy, so to keep my sanity I made it as minimal as possible. I'm a very artistic person who also has their head in the clouds, so I can't blame it all on my daughter. I work as a interior stylist and content creator so I spend a lot of time home. I tried to create a space where the both of us would feel home. That's why there are toys everywhere matching the decor.

What is your favorite room and why? Well it is actually one big room. I would say the bathtub corner with the old window that is the original from when the house was built. We (obviously) use the bathtub every day so it's a space that we use often and that is aesthetically pleasant. The light is always beautiful so it's my favorite place to Instagram.

Which fictional character would be most at home in your place? Lorelai and Rory Gilmore

Any advice for creating a home you love? It will sound cheesy but you need to know yourself.

The more you know about your habits the easier it will be to dedicate a space for each activity and give every object a place.

It also takes time, patience and a lot of scrolling through Pinterest, Apartment Therapy and Instagram.
