About

It all started with a vision. A few years ago, I had an idea of what style of house I would have liked to move into with my family. After years of searching, we decided to build our own. It took a few more months of research and work, but we finally broke ground in January 2020, a year that brought many challenges. But it is through this experience that I discovered not only how much I love designing homes, but that I also wanted to share the knowledge I gained with others. Through this hands-on experience, with all its ups and downs, I have learned about the challenges of making design decisions, dealing with obstacles or delays, making adjustment along the way. But the reward was truly worth it – a home that reflect who you are. And this is why G.A. Atelier was created – to help you bring your vision to life and transform your home into your favorite place. 

With a French, Egyptian, Indian and American family and a love of travel, I learned to create my own style, curate my home decor and blend unexpected styles together to truly reflect my own story. And I can help you do the same – create a space you truly love.
