At Home With Paula Passini

At Home with Paula PassiniLiving roomToday we are welcoming Paula Passini to the blog to share her amazing apartment with us!

Love this spaceKitchenLove this cradenza!"I moved to this apartment in 2011 after taking a sabbatical year to travel around the world with my boyfriend. At the time, it took me a few months to find a perfect spot to live–we wanted an old realty because their structure is better, with larger windows and high ceiling. As usual with old realty, the place was in bad shape. So we had to make a huge makeover: knocking down walls, opening up spaces and exposing the original bricks in the living room. I love the living room because it's where I host my friends, relax, listen to some music and spend most of my day. It’s also where I display the objects that I love.

We avoided traditional tourists’ destinations and visited exotic countries such as Laos, China, Morocco, Lebanon, Mongolia… Those objects are special because they can’t be found easily, they’re unique and they remind me of those lovely places that I had the privilege to visit. I also have a family heirloom that I really love: my grandpa's record player—it reminds me of him listening to operas every Sunday morning.

OfficeDecor detailsBathroom"I've lived in this apartment for four years now and it definitely goes along with my inner changes. Once I moved in I started working on an Interior Designer degree, so my home kind of became a place where I could try out my ideas and see what would work and what wouldn’t. Even today my home continues to change, just like myself." 

Thanks for sharing, Paula! You can find more of Paula on her blog and Instagram. xo.

  • its so gorgeous, love the decor! x

  • This is a really cute space, I like her office chairs and her palette coffee table that moves.

  • I sensed a brazilian feel to it… and I was right! Paula, I love your space, colorful, with lots of beautiful mementos and cool vibe.

  • Amazing. I think its so beautiful. I would love my place to look like that, full of personality but not full of stuf.
    Love it!

  • What an amazing aparment! I would love to live in a place like that, original, personal and specially organized.
    Love it

  • I’m about to move across the country and am brainstorming home decorating ideas for our new place: this is very inspiring. I REALLY like the patio on her instagram. So many plants there’s barely space for people is exactly what I want 🙂

  • Fantastico! Felicitaciones. I like the pops of color and the personal connection to everything.

  • What a dreamy space! I think the living room is my favorite…that brick wall and the floor to ceiling windows are absurd!

  • I love that bedroom with the light wood and the bold blue bedspread!


  • Gorgeous! Love the details like that lattice piece around the flowers or hand holding the light.

  • in love with all of that color, done so well and still manages to work!! xx. gigi.

  • I love that striped chair and the pattern on the cabinet.

  • Beautiful house! I loved the colors and the space seems comfy and modern at the same time. Sometimes it’s hard to combine both things.

    I loved the little details. The lamps in the bathroom are so cute! And the orange door in the bedroom is amazing! Is it the closet door?

    Xo, Deborah

  • Paula has a gorgeous living space! I love all of the unique items around the home, especially those jewelry bowls and the fun container under the vase with white roses.

  • I love the desk space so much! And the bathroom is beautiful. And I just have to say that I have the same duvet cover, so I feel like I might be doing something right 😉

  • The colors and simplicity are amazing. I love that orange door on sliders.
