Sign… Virgo

Coffee or tea… definitely tea

Never without… unfortunately my phone... And tea.

Color you couldn’t live without… Setting Plaster by Farrow and Ball

Fave color combo… cool grey and peach

Design muse… Prouve

Favorite museum… MOMA. Or the Morgan Library.

Last trip you were on…the last trip was to LA for work. But the last vacation I was on was to Nosara, Costa Rica.

Last book you read… just finished The Overstory. It is one of the best books I have ever read.

Favorite restaurant… oh to sit inside a restaurant again would be glorious!

Favorite hotel… I love Kelly Wearstler’s Proper Hotel. Also, the Gramercy Park Hotel is epic.



Design is… essential to living a happy life.

Art will always… be something that brings joy during even the darkest time.

Photography is... a tool for expression.

If you were a color it would be… violet

If you were a texture it would be… bumpy

I’m a firm believer in… hard work, integrity, and determination

I’m deeply grateful for… my family. And tea.

The world needs more… public bathrooms. Just kidding. It needs more appreciation for art and the beauty it brings to the world.
