Abaynesh is one of the people that has been giving us sneak peaks of her home reno for some time . She recently released the end result and its EVERYTHING! The vibes are African culture, music and art. The love and talent that she poured into this project is evident in every single detail. We adore the cultural maximalism; from the colors, dope art, wall paper and artifacts, the end result is beauty! We are so excited to give you a closer look!!

Don’t be afraid to be bold. Paint that wall, put up that funky wall paper if you love it. You can always make changes, so don’t be afraid to try something new!
