What’s on your bedside table?

A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara. A Waterford crystal ring holder to safely hold my jewelry. A D. Porthault printed cocktail napkin to place my water glass, ILIA Balmy Days lip conditioner, my candle of the moment – No.4 Bois de Balincourt by Maison Louis Marie – and Deep Sleep Pillow Spray by thisworks to scent our linens.

What is your favorite escape or journey?
Here in the States — Nantucket where I vacationed since I was 13 and also where I learned to drive. Abroad, Paris!

What “wow” moment have you had in fashion or design?
Getting a chance to meet Charlotte Moss whose work inspired me to take my career from the world of corporate marketing to interior design.

What’s your drink?
I’m drinking rosé (of course!), white Burgundy or Blanc de Blancs bubbles. Cocktails-wise anything concocted by star mixologist and bar director Leo Robitschek at the NoMad and Eleven Madison Park.

What are your three essentials when packing for a trip?
I can’t seem to go anywhere these days without my favorite Chloe Carlina sunnies with the fabulous new eyeglass chain that keep my glasses from getting tangled in my hair and also doubles as a necklace. My black Dior low-cut edged pointed-toe pumps which can take almost any outfit from day to night. And of course, my iPhone which I am lost without and use constantly to take photos everywhere I go.

What inexpensive thing can you do to spruce up a room?
There’s nothing like a good decluttering and tidying up. Bringing in freshly cut flowers and a new scented candle can really freshen up your neatly arranged space.
