by Nicole Singh

As an influencer, creative director and entrepreneur, one thing is undeniable when it comes to INF Network Member, Nadia Rosa: The girl's got taste. When she’s not working on her successful business pursuits Maison D'amoreCo. Creative Agency and Isabeau, the It girl spends many hours scouring the web for interior inspo, evident in the immaculate styling of her minimal abode in Fremantle, Western Australia. Giving us an exclusive tour, we can’t help but think that Rosa’s home will be the muse for many people’s styling mood board, namely because it embraces a no-clutter philosophy while still revealing her personal taste in unique ways. From polished concrete floors to statement artwork, we can't get enough it.

Thankfully for us, Rosa is willing to share her expert styling tips. From where she sought inspiration for the space, to where she sources her furniture, we chat with Rosa about creating a home that perfectly matches your aesthetic and lifestyle. Read on to take the tour.

What was the aesthetic you envisioned from your home?

I like a minimal aesthetic. I don’t like my home to feel too cluttered, but I still want to create an inviting and warm environment. I think I have created a nice mix. I like natural tones with a pop of colour—usually from artwork and photographs. I have concrete floors but have softened that with beautiful woollen and jute rugs. I have used metals and marble throughout my home, with a mix of natural-toned wood. 

Can you tell us a little more about where you live?

My home is based in Fremantle, Western Australia. I love this peaceful part of Perth. I am close to the beach which is very important to me and surrounded by amazing cafes. I can get up, grab a coffee, have a swim and head back home to start my day at work.

Where did you seek inspiration for the space?

I absolutely love interiors. I spend hours looking at interior websites, reading magazines and looking at different Instagram accounts. I’m forever looking at interior stores such Beldy and BDDW for inspiration.

When I was in NYC a few years ago I visited The Apartment, by The Line and instantly fell in love with the space. It had a warm homely feel, I was building at the time so I grew a lot of inspiration from them.

What are some of your favourite items in the space?

I’d have to say my favourite items are the photographs and artwork I have collected over the years. They all hold a special story and are all so sentimental to me. My most asked about piece of art is 'Pepper Pig' by the Melbourne artist Billy Bleed, which was a gift from my amazing sister. She has a great eye for art and I get a lot of inspiration from her. A recent addition to my home is my 'Faith In Strangers’ photograph by Akila Berjaoui. I chose this piece as its of one of my favourite places in Italy, La Fontellina. I was very lucky to have spent my 30th birthday there last year.

Some of my favourite pieces of furniture are from the wonderful Sydney store MCM HOUSE and District in Perth. I like to think I have certain statement pieces of furniture like my dining table, marble coffee tables, and metal consoles. These are all striking and yet timeless and understated pieces. Lighting is so important to me also, it really changes my mood. Thankfully I get lots of beautiful natural light at home which is another favourite thing of mine. 

What does ‘home’ mean to you?

A place that really represents who I am, where I feel myself and where I can relax. I love entertaining and creating an environment that others can enjoy. I work from home so need to love my space. Everything I have here really represents me and what I love.
