Natalia Shustova, founder of GOSHÁ, invites us inside her Mykonos-inspired Dubai home.
How long have you lived/worked in this space?
We moved into our villa (no.38 as we prefer to call it) in August 2020. It took us 48 days to totally renovate it.
Did you have a clear concept from the outset and which key pieces are your favourite?
We never had a mood board or concept for no.38… we wanted to create a very dreamy place reminding us of our favourite travels, something with a bit of nostalgia and artistic references in every corner. The Poltronova Ultrafragolla mirror was my dream for a long time and is still my favourite piece in our house, as well as the vintage blush Togo set. I’m also in love with our Mykonian garden – so many good nights with good friends have been spent there.
Have you custom-built any bespoke pieces?
Yes, we indeed designed unique pieces for our home; our dining and coffee tables, two bespoke mirrors, the state-of-the-art bed in our guest bedroom – are my favourite. Each piece is original and that makes them special.
How do you think your interior reflects you/ your brand?
Being unique and original in everything I do reflects perfectly in our interiors. I also live in/with art, so the house has artistic expressions all over it.
Describe your taste in three words.
Eclectic, sophisticated, inspired by art/cinema and poetry as well as nature.
