Mosey Loves Camille Nichelini
Like many of my muses, I first stumbled across Camille via Instagram. At the time she was living in a small apartment in Koreatown, LA. The way Camille curated her space and the way in which she photographed it, made her home look like an ethereal dream space. She shared images of candy pink sunsets, draping sunlit curtains and perfectly curved archways. Camille’s own style really resonated with my infatuation with colour, interiors and personal style.
Where are you located and what do you do for a living?
How did you get onto your career path and how has it evolved?
How would you describe your overall style? Personally/interiors
Haha—this is a tricky one for me. I'm a little bit all over the place so I wouldn't narrow myself down to one style exactly. As far as fashion goes I love anything colorful with a unique print or detail. For interiors—I love maintaining an 'airy' feeling to my space, but still try to incorporate bold pieces.
I love your aesthetic and fell in love with your Koreatown apartment in downtown LA.Now I’ve watched (with many others) you transform your echo park home into an ethereal dream like space with light reflections bouncing off every wall and what feels like an eternal sunset outside your windows! What is important to you when creating a space?
Surrounding yourself with pieces you truly love. If you see it and it speaks to you, that's a great sign you will enjoy it in your space. I no longer impulse buy pieces for my home just because they are on sale or a good deal at the store. I want to fall in love with everything I add to my home and imagine myself with it for years and years.
Fashion and style appear to play an important role in your life, did you find your interior style come naturally or is it something you had to work at to develop? For me working on Mosey in an aesthetically pleasing place is pretty crucial, it helps me tap into my creativity and dream big. What does having a beautiful space mean to you?
I can remember being 7 years old and my mom getting annoyed at me because I LOVED rearranging my bedroom every single week. You could hear the constant screech of furniture being pushed around on the hardwood floors (which I'm pretty sure I destroyed). It's definitely something that has always come naturally and I've continued to develop over time. I love making my space beautiful, it's my biggest passion in life. I know most people only see the photos I post, but the most magical moments are waking up in the morning, having coffee, and sitting on the couch with the beautiful lighting streaming in.
Being in such a digitally connected world (especially with your work) how do you tap out and what does self care look like to you?
It's definitely important for me to put down my phone and just not touch it from time to time. It gets to be A LOT sometimes, so self care is definitely important. I love going for walks around the neighbourhood, bubble baths with candles (cliche I know), movies with wine and face masks. All that jazz.
What/who are your biggest inspirations right now?
I love @AlyssaInTheCity, it's cool seeing someone so successful and similar in age to me living her dream!
What’s your favourite room in the house?
100% my living room. My bedroom is nowhere near how I want it yet haha!
What are 3 quick fixes to creating a dreamy room or space?
Airy curtains, mirrors reflecting against the windows (doubles the lighting in your space, when in doubt—get a disco ball!
