My name is Céline. I am French, born and raised. But with Armenian origins, like lots of people.
As it so happened, I fell in love with an Armenian man the very first day I came to visit the country of my ancestors during a world trip.
A few years later, the Velvet Revolution happened in Armenia, and here I am in 2019, married and mother of a 7 months old cute little girl, searching from Paris for an apartment in Yerevan for my family to settle and grow our companies here.
Let’s make something clear: I am no professional interior designer. But I have always been passionate about two things: interior design and collective entrepreneurship. For the last 10 years I have been carefully reading and trying out many home decor trends and Do It Yourself videos, while helping entrepreneurs, large companies and cities to set up social innovation projects (www.latelierpositif.fr).
Nos belles choses really is the combination of these two. I have been amazed at how beautiful and fine traditional Armenian handicraft was in museums and how at the same time as a tourist you have almost nothing to bring back to your modern home as a souvenir…
I think it is time to shake it all and show off our talents, our arts and crafts, our historical know-how, in a way people crave for.
Of course, I can’t do this alone. I want to build Nos belles choses on a solid collective of Armenian artists and artisans to let their talents talk through a line of modern interior design items.
Let’s get this enterprise going people!
I hope you enjoy the content of this blog, as a home decor lover and/or as a proud Armenian.
