Aimee Song, purveyor of all things chic, has an eye for design—whether it’s fashion, interiors or photography. Her blog boasts a collection of ethereal photos, from colorful cuisine to cool cityscapes, with a daily dose of Song’s eclectic outfits. The style maven’s perfectly polished off-duty sensibility, mixed with a dash of California cool, has made huge waves in the blogsphere.
Once a student of interior architecture, Song had planned on starting a décor blog, but an overwhelming response to the photos of her modern, streamlined looks with a colorful boho twist inspired her to take a new fashion-focused direction.
She runs her own interior design firm and doubles as a blogger by night. Song also documents the crafty DIY projects she does in her Los Angeles apartment. Think a picture frame transformed into a sleek coffee table tray, a high-shine vintage wine rack turned sunglasses tree, and her ultimate feat: building a closet that showcases and organizes her covetable wardrobe. We caught up with Song in Tokyo to chat influences, Instagram and her Michael Kors must-haves.
If you are seeking design inspiration, a perfectly curated wardrobe, or just want to muse over images of rainbow-hued macaroons and dreamy destinations, visit her blog.
