With a career that consists of telling editorial stories by dressing the world’s most beautiful people in the world’s most beautiful clothes, Beirut-based stylist Amine Jreissati is no stranger to the importance of a killer aesthetic.
It’s no surprise, therefore, that his Mar Mikhael abode is both impeccably curated and reflective of his creative temperament. “I’m obsessed with mixing styles. I have custom-made designer pieces as well as items from vintage stores, flea markets, galleries, souks, my mom’s storage, and every country I’ve been to,” replies Jreissati when asked how he’s gone about sourcing the eclectic elements of his home.
“Every item has its own story, history, and memory… and I cherish every story and memory,” he explains. The stylist’s sentiments are well reflected in his apartment, considering a central feature of the space is a large, perfectly put together gallery wall. “I’ve been framing whatever I think is worth framing for over ten years now – everything from images and family photos to editorials I’ve done, designers’ letters, sketches, and even tote bags. When I moved into my first apartment, I had a small gallery wall that has evolved into this bigger version for my second space.”
Now in his apartment for nearly two years, Jreissati explains that, although the decorating process was a quick one for him, his space is far from being done. “Besides the fact that I take my time choosing the right piece for the right spot, I think decorating a house never ends… and that’s the beauty of it! I’ve replaced shopping with home shopping these days,” he adds.
