Tell us a little (or a lot) about your home and the people who live there: This house brings me good memories; it’s made me grow a lot as a person. And it’s because I chose an apartment that was completely abandoned before, turning it into my home. The process helped me to know myself.

Describe your home’s style in 5 words or less: Compact, cozy.

Above, a view of the home office.

What’s the last thing you bought (or found!) for your home? An orchid. I’m always buying plants.

If you could magically change something about your home, what would it be? I wish I had a bigger kitchen.

What is your favorite room and why? The balcony in the bathroom.

Any advice for creating a home you love? Think of the small environment in a modular way. With versatile furniture that can be rearranged because living confined will require the flexibility to become a monotonous life.
