“After all the time and energy we put into our little vintage bar cart, it’s by far one of my most favorite things in the apartment. It was so fun to style, and I love how it anchors our gallery wall.”
How would you describe your interior decorating style?
I like to think that it’s a healthy mix of design-driven and unfussy, livable elements. While I love the look of modern, clean lines and unabashed glamour, it’s also important to me that we have a very inviting space with throwback influences and a touch of funkiness. There’s definitely a certain regalia that I love to incorporate, but with a sense of humor, even just in small doses.
“I used to go out and get my coffee every morning, but lately I’ve been loving making myself a little spread to sit with while I work.”
“I found these heart shaped metal chalk boards at Pom Pom in Santa Monica. They’re pretty enough to leave blank, but sometimes my husband will draw funny pictures on them, or we’ll leave notes for our guests – a little surprise when they go to powder their noses.”
Does your love of fashion influence your home design?
Absolutely. My home is filled with a lot of the same elements I love in fashion. Animal fabrics and shapes, sequins wherever possible, and some necessary touches of masculinity. That’s not just for my husband’s sanity but for mine as well. The main difference between my fashion style and home style is the balance of black and white. I am obsessed with white in the home and use it as much as I can, but I have a lot more black than white in my closet. Maybe that’s why I crave it so much in the home. To me, there’s nothing like a room that radiates with that fresh, clean white glow.
“Going into spring I really wanted a kaleidoscope floral blazer, so when I saw the Rebecca Minkoff version, I just had to have it! I’ve been wearing it constantly ever since.”
“The inspiration board is my favorite thing in the office. Sometimes I like to wipe it clean and start over from scratch. My brain needs that from time to time.”
“These little gold dinos have been with me since my roommate gave them to me as a gift in college. I spray painted them gold about a year ago, and I like to migrate them around to different rooms. Aside from our two dogs, they are our little mascots.”
What are some of your most treasured pieces in your home?
Our most treasured pieces are probably the ones that we put some elbow grease into, such as our vintage bar cart from a junkyard in Sun Valley. It used to be broken and blackened, and it was so fun to spruce it up and dress it with all sorts of pretty liquid necessities. The memo board above my desk was something my mom and I made together one afternoon, so I always think of her when I look at it. I am in love with our new gold splattered cowhide rug, bought from one of those street corner rug guys here in LA.
