Small Apartment Tour – Two Bedroom Apartment in Tehran, Iran

Hey so I’m at my aunt’s apartment in
Tehran Iran and this is actually probably the third apartment tour video
I’m doing for my Youtube channel but I just can’t help it because there are so
many amazing apartments and homes in my family I have a lot of really talented
decorators in my family and I really really wanted to show you guys you know
show off their style and I also wanted you guys to see what an apartment looks
like in the Middle East and specifically in Tehran Iran because
it’s really a lot different from usually what you find in the United States I’m
actually going to start with my favorite favorite favorite part of this entire
apartment and just I don’t know it’s the way it looks in the mornings
when you wake up specifically that window back there and the window is
filled with those beautiful pink flowers just really really makes you happy in
the morning so the washer is actually right here in the kitchen which is pretty
common I feel in Iran and maybe in other parts of the world too and they
really don’t do dryers here in this part of the world we pretty much hang out
your clothes on a line to dry outside on the balcony so very open kitchen design
so you can be cooking all day and working in the kitchen but you still get
to see the entire apartment so it’s really really nice I really like what
they’ve done with the cabinets because it used to be wood I think and they
changed it to these really nice new cabinets one of the things I like is that
the ceiling is actually green so I just think that’s kind of cool because I’ve
seen popcorn ceilings you know back in America and flat ceilings but you don’t see
like painted ceilings like this all that often I think it looks really nice and
of course every person household has to have a samovar so a traditional you know
tea kettle type situation that we use to brew our tea every morning and
honestly all day long so over here is the formal dining table
we don’t usually eat here much unless there’s a party or something like that something special
going on what I wanted to actually point out about this area is this piece right
here because actually my aunt did this herself so I believe the underneath
is wood and then I believe she said it was I don’t know if it’s clay or some
kind of resin but I don’t exactly know all the processes that she uses I’m not an artist I
just know that it’s really really beautiful and she did it all by herself and
actually if any of you think that you would want something like that she
can actually do that for you to custom order so just let me know leave a
comment down below if you’re interested in artwork like that so this is really
where we spend most of our time at least where I’ve spent most of my time since I’ve been
here what I love about Persian homes is like even in a small two-bedroom
apartment chandeliers like everywhere so we’ve got a super fancy chandelier up
here there’s actually another chandelier right over the dining table back
there so chandeliers everywhere it’s so Persian seriously you cannot go into a
Persian home without there being chandeliers at least one but usually more
than one in every home and the other thing that I want to point out that I
pointed out in my other Tehran apartment tour video for my cousin’s apartment is
that all of the floor in here is tile and that’s something that’s
really huge in Iran is that the floor is pretty much everywhere I’ve been it’s
always tile so you don’t really see a ton of wood flooring and you definitely
don’t see carpet very often a lot of tile and then of course
Persian rugs over the tile so in this house i don’t know if you got
to see but there’s rug all over the place and so that’s what makes it feel homey
but I feel like having the chandeliers and the tiles and the rugs makes even the smallest apartment just feel so fancy and like a little Persian palace and
then all of the colors you see on the wall were painted by my aunt it actually
looked different a couple of years ago when I was here um she actually just
redid everything recently so this is kind of brand new for me too and I think
it looks fantastic I wanted to also make sure to point out this mirror because
this mirror is also custom made by my aunt so the underneath once again is
wood and then actually all of these fish and figurines and flowers and all these
little things that you see on here were made out of clay and then painted by her
and you know she created this entire frame for this mirror by hand custom of
her own design so again if this is something that you’d be
interested in a custom order I know that she would be happy to do that for
you so leave me a comment and let me know but yeah I feel like this is
really it when it comes to the living room I just really love the color I love
how happy it is I love how open it is um and then this is such a nice little
touch so the layout of this place is so open but then there’s these curtains
over here and then this is sort of a bedroom and bathroom area and so another
interesting thing about Iranian apartments is that usually they have an
Asian squat toilet and then they usually many of them also have sort of an
american-style toilet and usually the american-style
toilet is in the same group or same place as the shower um so like right
here this is very interesting you’ll see that like this is the shower back here
but then also on this side there’s actually an american-style toilet but
here’s the interesting thing about american-style toilets in Iran
is you can’t flush toilet paper the sewage system in Iran is not made handle
toilet paper so even if you use an american-style toilet you still have to
use the hose and wash yourself the Persian way so over here on this side is
the other bathroom which is the Iranian style squat toilet over here but I also
just think it’s very cute and again all tile nice little touches in here
but yeah so usually there are two bathrooms one of each style at least
that’s what I’ve experienced okay so I’m going to take you into one of the two
bedrooms this is the main sort of master bedroom back here again the wall
colors everything were chosen by my aunt so we can see that the theme of this
apartment is really a lot of sort of neutral earth tones but even though it’s
a lot of neutral earth tones which aren’t always my thing it’s also very
white and very bright and very open which is another thing that I love about this
space so I have another thing that I want to point out is kind of this
traditional Persian mirror I had one of these in my room growing up and I feel
like you see these in Persian homes all the time and also this is like a
traditional Iranian girl I see a lot of things like that
alright and so in bedroom number two this is actually where I’ve been staying
during the time that I’ve been here so it’s actually a little bit messy because
all the new cases and all my stuff fell into place so don’t blame my aunt
that’s my fault but let’s come on in and I’ll show you where I’ve been staying
and so back here is you know one of my second homes in Iran so I feel like I
have many second homes here and this is definitely one of them so I’ve been
sleeping in this bed and then this wall she painted a kind of reddish
earth tone red which is different than the last time I was here but I think it
looks fantastic and then we also have a chandelier in this room as well but
it’s a different style not quite as blinged out as in the living room but
still definitely they’re into their chandeliers over here in this part of the world actually it um this is the last night
that I’m going to be spending here in this apartment on this trip so kind of
sad but I wanted to make sure that I got a video tour completed before I left
because it’s something that I’ve wanted to do for a long time and actually with all
the new changes that my aunt just made it looks even better so I knew I had to
get a tour of this place up on my YouTube channel to show all you guys
so anyway thank you for visiting I hope you enjoyed it I hope you got some good
decor ideas and if you want any custom artwork make sure to leave me a comment
down below and I’ll get you in touch with my aunt but thank you guys so much
take care

Middle East is wrong word created by West stupid people.
Iran has not any serious common with Middle East.
Iranian are not Arab
Iranian speak Persian
Iranian new years and tradition are special and not the same the rest of Middle East.
Iranian have not the same kind of religion as Arab and Turkish.
Iranian have their own traditional clothes, foods,
Why should stupid Western Countries try to put us in the same plate as Arab and Turk???
Why Iranian replied the same wrong???
If so why Spain, Malta, Cyprus are not with Middle East. These countries are have much common with Arabian then Iran has??????

I just stumbled on your youtube tour of the apartment. Really enjoyed it and all that you described. I visit Iran regularly and arrange to bring Americans on tours. It is so nice to see positive images of Iran, as I have learned and try to share via my travel clients and also from my Youtube channel the positive things about Iran. The nicest part, which comes as a surprise to many Americans, is the overwhelming warmth Iranians display towards Americans. Wouldn't it be amazing to bring a Republican congressional delegation to Iran? Maybe even they would have a change of heart. Thank you for doing your videos. Jerry

Greetings from Chicago to all folks of Iran, a lovely country I am planning to visit. Your video is excellent !
Iran requires U S citizens to obtain a visa, which is actually provided by Pakistan Embassy in Washington, DC. But, first, I need to find someone in Iran who can sponsor me. Any information as to how to find a sponsor in Iran or obtain a tourist visa will be highly appreciated ! Best Wishes from Chicago !

Niloo, I love your Hustler's T-shirt. You are right about the bathrooms and I remember two years ago after 16 of living in the U.S., I did drop a toilet paper and had to call the plummer in the modern toilet seats. I never used the Iranian one. I was ok with using the hose but hope that they fix their sewage system. Or else, it is more fancy looking than the ones here in U.S.
