What is your dream decorating project?
I would go back to my childhood and redecorate my mom’s badly '80s-decorated house.
Who or what always inspires you?
What destinations alway reboot your creativity?
I love Istanbul, Mexico City, and Palermo in Sicily because there are so many different cultures that make them interesting -- and there's really great food.
What’s your go-to work uniform?
Jeans, desert boots, blue shirt, and a knit tie.
What’s your favorite color to decorate with right now?
I’m a big fan of blue of all shades. I’ve never met a blue I didn’t like. I use it as a neutral ... it’s appealing to everyone.
What was the last great book you read?
"Sudden Rain" by Maritta Wolff. It took place in the early '70s in Southern California and it created visuals in my head that were fantastic.
What's your secret design resource?
I like to scour Chinatown, Little India, and Korea town in LA to find hidden gems.
