Hello Beautiful People! My name is Aminah Chung and I’m definitely not what you’d imagine with such a last name, but don’t worry I get that a lot so I’m not offended! I lay my head down at night, and sometimes during the day too if I’m lucky, in sunny Arizona with my husband, Bernard of 8 years. We share our lives with two gorgeous little ladies, Kaiyah who is 1 year old, and Neah who is 6 years old. Can I get an “Amen” to only paying for one college tuition at a time – #winning!

Working full time in the health care industry for the past 10 years has been both rewarding and mentally exhausting. The Hubby suggested I find a creative outlet and so here we are! The word I’d use to describe my decor style would be Transitional. While I love modern furniture and design, I enjoy adding traditional touches throughout our home to create a more comfy, cozy vibe. We sold our first home and built our ‘forever’ home in 2016. Although it was new construction, it still left much to be done in terms of personalization. I’d love for you all to hang out with us as we continue to make this our home, through simple DIYs and updates.

So why the name ‘neatly living?’ Neat has been a consistent word used to describe our home so I thought it was very fitting, but neatly living isn’t just about home decor. It can encompass so much more and for me, it’s a lifestyle choice and state of mind. I don’t want to live neatly only within my home. I want to have a neat mind filled with positive thoughts and the things that truly make me happy. I’m embarking on a journey of sorts in which my ultimate goal is to live more intentionally and I plan to share my progress and/or setbacks in my blog posts alongside our projects. Hopefully, I can inspire and encourage you all to think about your own life goals, including how you can accomplish them.

Be sure to follow me on Instagram and tell a friend or two or all, if you think my content would interest them. Check out my Pinterest boards also! I have a lot of great home decor inspo pinned for your viewing pleasure! I want to hear from you guys as well, so leave some comments under my blog posts. Lastly, please reach out via email or Instagram if you’re interested in advertising or collaborating.

Thank you for following along on our home journey. I appreciate your support so much and I can’t wait to connect with you!
