What makes you feel at home in your own space?
That feeling of love and warmth that you feel when you're in a space makes me feel most at home.
What does home mean to you?
Home is my safe space and my sanctuary. It's my peace of mind and all of the warm and fuzzy parts of me. I really love it here.
Is there a particular piece in your space that is most special to you?
My couch! It was the first time I designed a piece of furniture.
In terms of designing your space, what was your approach?
I wanted to have fun when designing my space and I knew I wanted furniture with a lot of character that were artisanal and whimsical. I had a list of dream pieces and spent countless hours on auctions and sourcing pieces of history that I have always loved.
Biggest indulgence that brings you joy in your home?
Let's just say I was somewhat of a glutton in this space (Ha!) I have so many of my dream pieces here, but my Oo Lamp by Eny Parker has to be one of my favorites. Not only is she a badass woman and phenomenal designer but she's a New Yorker like me! I love the character and boldness of this lamp from the asymmetrical bulbs to the ceramic structural base, it's so chic.
Is there an element of color in your apartment that makes you most happy and why?
I love burnt orange. It's such a vibrant and soulful color that brings warmth to every room. The juxtaposition of the burnt orange against the industrial dining set by René Herbst and black trimming is such a beautiful vignette that I am very proud of.
Era of design that most speaks to you?
I would say, I'm most drawn to the Postmodern era design. I love the daring designs of the era, There is an element of playfulness and boldness that really speaks to me as an artist.
How do you see Pieces fitting into your space and blending with your style?
Pieces were such a perfect fit to my design aesthetic for my home, specifically the court series. I remember when I first saw the collaboration with the Karl Hab prints and I was so in love with the collection. Both carpets were bold, unique, and non traditional which is a continued conversation between the pieces in my home.
