Do you think your home reflects your personal style, and what are your top 3 decorating tips?
My home is definitely a reflection of my personal style. I love a beachy vibe with playful patterns mixed with light neutrals, fun textures, and bits of gold. I never like things to be too perfect, a little dishevelment is always refreshing in my book. My decor tips: One, play around and move things in your house. It’s a good way to excercise your creativity and it’s always refreshing to see old pieces in a new way. Two, accent the kitchen with colorful food. I love using tangerines, or a deep purple eggplant to brighten up the kitchen. Three, borrow from the kitchen. I love using cake platters to display my jewelry and martini glasses for holding matchbooks.
“I recently went through a ‘hot pink’ phase and spray-painted an old iron tractor seat stool. I love how it adds a little color pop to the room. Right now it functions as a spot for my Givenchy Antigona bag that I found at dressed in Santa Barbara.”

“I’m a bit of a product junkie. I’m always experimenting with new lip colors. Right now, my go-to combo is M.A.C. Felshpot and NARS Turkish Delight gloss.”
