There’s always something exceptional about women who take their passions and turn them into purpose. Pursuing their dreams and goals while paving the way for others is something that we love to see female entrepreneurs do. When thinking of such women one particular interior designer stands out. The creative visionary and working mom who is doing it all and making it look seamless, Amna Wali’s interiors are unlike any other. With bespoke furniture that is unique to the customer, her creations are more than just ordinary pieces. They are particularly catered for clients and are not mass produced which sets them apart from the rest. Since everything is tailored to the client’s needs, Wali has also decided to open up her own boutique store and we are already in awe of her marvelous creations!

Amna Wali was born and raised in Karachi, Pakistan where she initially wanted to become a surgeon in her adolescence. However, as her love for the arts grew she knew that design was the right path for her. After honing in on her talents she finally decided that her passion for interiors was the strongest and enrolled herself in one of the most prestigious art institutes in Pakistan, Indus Valley School of Art and Architecture. In her 3rd year, she transferred to Kingston University in London where she graduated with Honours in Interior design. Amna Wali Design Boutique has established itself as a highly specialized provider of products and services in interior and architecture. As the founder and creative head, Amna herself, set up her boutique which has unique pieces catered to anyone who wants to explore living spaces beyond the mundane. In 2017 her brand decided to have its first pop-up shop in Karachi where a distinct variety of bespoke furniture and interiors were displayed. Ever since, Amna Wali Design Boutique has expanded its creative portfolio by redefining residential, hospitality, commercial, and retail interiors along with a range of beautiful home accessories and textiles.

Amna Wali’s interiors are full of layering, making them look grand, bold, and beautiful. Extravagance is usually her forte as her work leans towards tall ceilings, moldings, layering walls with different patterns, and furniture with all kinds of bold textures as well as colors. However, since her brand’s motto is to execute pieces and spaces catered to the client’s needs, she does not impose her own style on them completely and instead, uses their needs as a source of inspiration when designing a space. Her design boutique also does luxury interiors for anyone with an imaginative eye for living spaces. Furthermore, Amna Wali is also a mother of three and who balances her home life and her professional life while doing an excellent job at both. Being accredited for her distinguished work already, she sets an example for other women to pursue their passions while still being good mothers stating that the two are not mutually exclusive.

Amna Wali’s official design studio is finally opening up in Karachi later in May near Bukhari Commercial area, Lane 2 Phase 6 DHA. The studio is an exclusive 200 square yard building where her boutique will open on the ground and basement floor. Since we’re already in love with Amna’s designs, we can’t wait to check out her store real soon!
