Sanjana Ahid, her husband, and their cat babies have lived in this apartment they own for six years: I always wanted to bring the outdoors inside. We spent a huge chunk of the year seeing snow and gloomy weather. Therefore, I wanted to create a space which will always give me joy and a sense of liveliness. The plants all over my home gives a tropical vibe. They make me feel alive. Taking care of them feels therapeutic to me. I live with my husband and two cat babies. Our first cat baby passed away two years ago. He was the best baby I could’ve ever asked for. When we first moved to our home, I remember he helped me put all the pieces of furniture in place. He took over the inspection duty. I feel connected to him when I walk around our home.

My husband is a very minimal person. He works from home. We use our second bedroom for his home office. He has a small desk there, but he loves to work from the bed. We made our home with a lot of love and care. It does feel like a home to us.

My style keeps on changing. Nothing is too precious here, but everything was selected intentionally. Living with two cats is challenging, but I try to pick furniture that can deal with stretching. My personal style is earthy and boho.

What is your favorite room and why? My bedroom. As soon as I wake up I see a luxe green garden on the opposite wall.
