You know I love color and surround myself with it every day. My store is bursting to the seams with it, the walls of my Connecticut home are lined with it and my art studio is like a color explosion, but I will let you in on a little secret, my bedroom is awash in whites and soft greys. A calm oasis of white walls and linens, with pops of contrasts with my artwork and pillows that I change more times than I like to admit. It just makes me go ahhhhh when I step inside.
This room is my sanctuary, where I surround myself with things that I love most. Scents and textures, soft and cozy. It’s where I come to recharge and let the busy-ness of the day settle.
Some nights, and there aren’t many at the moment with the busy holiday season, I light one of my favorite candlesand indulge in one of my greatest passions, reading. I always have a stack of books on my nightstand, and recently I have been loving The Hare with Amber Eyes. I actually love reading coffee table books and always find inspiration for my interior design and creative projects. I also use them, like the gorgeous Assouline books in our shop, to style coffee tables, shelves, nightstands, tables, you name it.
Each day is unlike the other, and I love it. I love painting, working with my gorgeous clients and spending time at my shop and studio in Westport. It’s that passion and drive that keeps me going, sometimes long into the night and early in the morning. But it’s the calm and relaxation I feel when I step across the threshold into my bedroom that gives me what I need to get up and do it all over again.
