    You might not know Apphia Michael but you should. Apphia's Instagram is a delightful mix of her beyond cute children (two-and-a-half year old Tallis and 6 month-old Byron), and the rest of her super stylish life. Her babe of a husband, George, makes the odd appearance and elsewhere you'll find stunning interiors, all delivered with her distinct minimalist style.

    If having a monochrome colour palette seems a little harsh for the subject matter, which is basically her family life, you'd be surprised at how much joy and life comes through in the images. Apphia, a journalist and stylist clearly has a good eye.

    Name, age, location, occupation:
    Apphia / 33 / London / Journalist, writer, stylist.

    How many children do you have, how old are they and what are their names?
    Two - my BFF Tallis who is 2.5 years old and baby boyfriend Byron who's 6 months old.

    How did you meet your husband and how long ago was it?
    10 years ago. I spotted George at a CocoRosie gig in Shepherd's Bush one Sunday and he literally stopped me in my tracks. I saw him again exactly a week later at an MTV party at 93 Feet East in Brick Lane on the other side of town. Told myself it must have been fate and totally stalked him that day like a psycho until I finally mustered up the courage to chat him up.

    Where’s your happy place?
    Bed, with my lover.

    What do you love about the city you live in?
    That it's full of creative and inspiring people. I've always wanted my kids to grow up in a place where they have easy access to some of the world’s best theatres, concert halls, galleries, museums and public art. More importantly, it's also a melting pot of different races and creeds – how amazing for little people to be exposed to and taught to love and embrace such diversity at such a young, formative age. Pretty incredible.

    How does it impact your style?
    There's a real sense that you can be whoever you want to be in London – there aren't really any rules which makes me more confident and bold in my style choices.

    Where’s your favourite place to shop?
    Dover Street Market, Goodhood, &OtherStories.
