What is one hot item that every woman should have in her home (decor or otherwise):I am having a major topiary moment right now! I have at least one in every room — they smell great and only need to be spritzed with water once a month! We carry a tall boxwood topiary that’s great for a mantle and an adorable mini topiary that’s perfect for bookshelves or your desktop.
Favorite store?I do most of my clothes shopping at J.Crew but all of my decor comes from my boutique!
Reading any books at the moment? Seen any great movies? Favorite TV Shows?I’m reading Pride & Prejudice as part of my 101 in 1001 list. I haven’t been to the movies in way too long but on TV I’m loving Shark Tank and The Office.
What is your favorite word of the moment?Spring!
What is your favorite color of the moment? (or color-combo)Hot pink and navy blue, always!
What is your favorite quote?“Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking, and don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know it when you find it.” —Steve Jobs
What are your top 3 favorite decorating tips?A fresh coat of paint can work miracles. You can never have too many throw pillows. And a pretty tray can transform any mess!
If you were an animal what would you be?I adore elephants!
