Sticky beak into the studio and home of Exterior Imports (Natalie Asseraf)…..


Natalie Asseraf runs a fashion studio from home.  Exterior Imports is essentially a private shopping space that offers a selection of beautiful imported clothing. Natalie has created a space that allows women to shop in an honest and welcoming environment.  Trust me, I have tried it out!

When visiting Exterior Imports I have also had the pleasure of walking through Natalie’s home which of course caught my eye.  Natalie has a mixture of classic and quirky pieces in her home that create a relaxed vibe.  Thanks Natalie for allowing me to photograph your studio and home.

 Best design/decorating tip you could give our readers: 

I approach the way in which I decorate my house in the same way that I dress my clients, stay true to your own aesthetic but don’t be afraid to push the boundaries with highlight pieces that pick up on current trends, colours or design.
