Hey so I’m at my aunt’s apartment in Tehran Iran and this is actually probably the third apartment tour video I’m doing for my Youtube channel but I just can’t help it because there are so many amazing apartments and homes in my family I have a lot of really talented decorators in my family and I really really wanted to show you guys you know show off their style and I also wanted you guys to see what an apartment looks like in the Middle East and specifically in Tehran Iran because it’s really a lot different from usually what you find in the United States I’m actually going to start with my favorite favorite favorite part of this entire apartment and just I don’t know it’s the way it looks in the mornings when you wake up specifically that window back there and the window is filled with those beautiful pink flowers just really really makes you happy in the morning so the washer is actually right here in the kitchen which is pretty common I feel in Iran and maybe in other parts of the world too and they really don’t do dryers here in this part of the world we pretty much hang out your clothes on a line to dry outside on the balcony so very open kitchen design so you can be cooking all day and working in the kitchen but you still get to see the entire apartment so it’s really really nice I really like what they’ve done with the cabinets because it used to be wood I think and they changed it to these really nice new cabinets one of the things I like is that the ceiling is actually green so I just think that’s kind of cool because I’ve seen popcorn ceilings you know back in America and flat ceilings but you don’t see like painted ceilings like this all that often I think it looks really nice and of course every person household has to have a samovar so a traditional you know tea kettle type situation that we use to brew our tea every morning and honestly all day long so over here is the formal dining table we don’t usually eat here much unless there’s a party or something like that something special going on what I wanted to actually point out about this area is this piece right here because actually my aunt did this herself so I believe the underneath is wood and then I believe she said it was I don’t know if it’s clay or some kind of resin but I don’t exactly know all the processes that she uses I’m not an artist I just know that it’s really really beautiful and she did it all by herself and actually if any of you think that you would want something like that she can actually do that for you to custom order so just let me know leave a comment down below if you’re interested in artwork like that so this is really where we spend most of our time at least where I’ve spent most of my time since I’ve been here what I love about Persian homes is like even in a small two-bedroom apartment chandeliers like everywhere so we’ve got a super fancy chandelier up here there’s actually another chandelier right over the dining table back there so chandeliers everywhere it’s so Persian seriously you cannot go into a Persian home without there being chandeliers at least one but usually more than one in every home and the other thing that I want to point out that I pointed out in my other Tehran apartment tour video for my cousin’s apartment is that all of the floor in here is tile and that’s something that’s really huge in Iran is that the floor is pretty much everywhere I’ve been it’s always tile so you don’t really see a ton of wood flooring and you definitely don’t see carpet very often a lot of tile and then of course Persian rugs over the tile so in this house i don’t know if you got to see but there’s rug all over the place and so that’s what makes it feel homey but I feel like having the chandeliers and the tiles and the rugs makes even the smallest apartment just feel so fancy and like a little Persian palace and then all of the colors you see on the wall were painted by my aunt it actually looked different a couple of years ago when I was here um she actually just redid everything recently so this is kind of brand new for me too and I think it looks fantastic I wanted to also make sure to point out this mirror because this mirror is also custom made by my aunt so the underneath once again is wood and then actually all of these fish and figurines and flowers and all these little things that you see on here were made out of clay and then painted by her and you know she created this entire frame for this mirror by hand custom of her own design so again if this is something that you’d be interested in a custom order I know that she would be happy to do that for you so leave me a comment and let me know but yeah I feel like this is really it when it comes to the living room I just really love the color I love how happy it is I love how open it is um and then this is such a nice little touch so the layout of this place is so open but then there’s these curtains over here and then this is sort of a bedroom and bathroom area and so another interesting thing about Iranian apartments is that usually they have an Asian squat toilet and then they usually many of them also have sort of an american-style toilet and usually the american-style toilet is in the same group or same place as the shower um so like right here this is very interesting you’ll see that like this is the shower back here but then also on this side there’s actually an american-style toilet but here’s the interesting thing about american-style toilets in Iran is you can’t flush toilet paper the sewage system in Iran is not made handle toilet paper so even if you use an american-style toilet you still have to use the hose and wash yourself the Persian way so over here on this side is the other bathroom which is the Iranian style squat toilet over here but I also just think it’s very cute and again all tile nice little touches in here but yeah so usually there are two bathrooms one of each style at least that’s what I’ve experienced okay so I’m going to take you into one of the two bedrooms this is the main sort of master bedroom back here again the wall colors everything were chosen by my aunt so we can see that the theme of this apartment is really a lot of sort of neutral earth tones but even though it’s a lot of neutral earth tones which aren’t always my thing it’s also very white and very bright and very open which is another thing that I love about this space so I have another thing that I want to point out is kind of this traditional Persian mirror I had one of these in my room growing up and I feel like you see these in Persian homes all the time and also this is like a traditional Iranian girl I see a lot of things like that alright and so in bedroom number two this is actually where I’ve been staying during the time that I’ve been here so it’s actually a little bit messy because all the new cases and all my stuff fell into place so don’t blame my aunt that’s my fault but let’s come on in and I’ll show you where I’ve been staying and so back here is you know one of my second homes in Iran so I feel like I have many second homes here and this is definitely one of them so I’ve been sleeping in this bed and then this wall she painted a kind of reddish earth tone red which is different than the last time I was here but I think it looks fantastic and then we also have a chandelier in this room as well but it’s a different style not quite as blinged out as in the living room but still definitely they’re into their chandeliers over here in this part of the world actually it um this is the last night that I’m going to be spending here in this apartment on this trip so kind of sad but I wanted to make sure that I got a video tour completed before I left because it’s something that I’ve wanted to do for a long time and actually with all the new changes that my aunt just made it looks even better so I knew I had to get a tour of this place up on my YouTube channel to show all you guys so anyway thank you for visiting I hope you enjoyed it I hope you got some good decor ideas and if you want any custom artwork make sure to leave me a comment down below and I’ll get you in touch with my aunt but thank you guys so much take care
