How To Decorate Like H&H Designer Of The Year Nam Dang-Mitchell
Nam Dang-Mitchell came to the Prairies by way of Paris (she was born there while her mother was studying at the Sorbonne), and it shows. Scroll through her Instagram feed and you’ll see countless examples of the same effortlessly chic style that all French women seem to have built into their DNA. What sets Nam apart, though, is her unique ability to recreate that sumptuous glamor in interior designs that still read as approachable and livable. “I love the aspirational aspect of building a dream home; it feeds into the romance of an ideal life,” she says. “I think a home can inspire someone to be the best version of themself.”
