What are some of the places that have most felt like home for you?

India is home, London is home, Dubai is home....mostly I feel at home in my body, which 'houses' me.

When home is going really great, what does it look like and feel like? How do you feel?

My children at home, surrounded by friends, good food, music, laughter and joy.

What are important daily, weekly, or regular rhythms important for you to keep a great homelife?

There is no greater joy than coming home to a clean home, that smells nice, with fresh flowers, great food and music.

Each week I buy fresh flowers for the house. Lavender oil is replenished in the vaporizers at home everyday. There is always great food, as I love cooking and baking with music playing in the background.

What’s a prized possession of yours or one of your favorite home purchases?

Prized procession is my handsfree mixer - for all the baking I do.

Favorite home purchase is my dining table, where a lot of time is spent and some great conversations have taken place.

What's one thing you do or unique hack that helps you in homelife?

A bath, as soon as I get in. Nice smells in my home - either through a scented candle or a room spray. I love a vase of fresh flowers. During the cooler months, sitting in my garden. And baking, always brings me joy.

Farah’s a treasure trove of insight and full of rich stories about life. And I’m excited to give special attention to giving my home a lavender scent—just like her!

Thanks for the interview, Farah!

Until next time,

– Matt Barrios
