Who is your interior design icon?
"Kelly Wearstler. Her style to me is all about a contemporary sophistication that's rich in materials, and forever artful. I have followed her career for quite some time and I am always impressed how she pushes what we think our comfort zone is; eventually everyone comes around, so she’ll push even further in a new direction. I see her as a trailblazer, and a brave, resourceful designer. A true artist."

How would you describe your fashion style?
"It has evolved over the years (as it should!) to the point I’d say now I try to be my own version of the modern woman — savvy, stylish, smart, sexy, never girly or fussy, but real. We’re all so on-the-go these days, so I tend to stick to effortless looks but I’ll often incorporate an element of edge and one piece that feminizes the ensemble."

Do you have any interior styling secrets?
"I came up with a five-pieces-to-a-great-room rule: incorporating something textured/patterned, something shiny, something modern, something organic/animal, and something vintage/antiquey. Whenever I feel like a room isn’t quite there yet, I try to find that one piece that’s missing from this formula, and it never fails to complete the space."

What room is your favorite? Why?
"I love my office because it’s my own little creativity hub with a rotating gallery wall, inspiration pinboard, and design book library. With the latter, since I create brands for a living, I am invigorated by surrounding myself with brands that have endured and continue to convey a consistent brand message successfully — Hermes, Chanel, Gucci, YSL, for example. I also thrive off of flipping through photography, travel, and art books to get the creative juices flowing — you never know what ideas will spring from a single visual image that you haven’t seen or had not noticed before!"
