You’d never know by just looking at her that interior designer Sarah Ahn was a neuroscientist in a former life. After spending six months in the hospital nursing her brother back to health after a motorcycle accident, she changed course, went to work for renowned interior designer Kelly Wearstler, and opened her own design firm, Nami Design. Now with a book and home décor line in the works, Ahn provides some easy tips (no Ph.D. required!) for do-it-yourself home decorating.

As an assistant editor for a woman lifestyle magazine, I’m exposed to images, faces, bodies and shapes all day, everyday. I surf blogs, I flip through magazines and I interview some of the most “beautiful” people on the planet.
As my life has gotten more infused with the media’s standards of beauty, I have to admit, I became a little disturbed by the narrow scope of what is deemed beautiful in our society. Long limbs, blonde mane, enormous eyes, lush lips, big boobs, etc. As an Asian American woman, we have a slightly different set of requirements to be beautiful (straight black hair, big eyes, clear, pale skin, waify body shape, etc.), but it’s still there.
But then, I realized I was actually in a position to do something about it! Audrey Magazine decided to put out a casting call seeking REAL women to participate in a photo shoot for our Summer issue. We wanted to feature girls who had great stories to share about their quirks, their bodies, their faces.
