The book that changed my life...

The Rapture of Canaan by Sheri Reynolds remains in my conscious years after I read it because it reminds me of some of the most interesting aspects of my childhood.

The most amazing meal I've ever had...

For the food, it was Little Serow in Washington, D.C., for the ambiance it’s Stori Komin on the island Hvar, Croatia. The setting is a long-abandoned medieval village and just getting there is an experience.

 

The morning and nighttime routines I swear by...  

I wash my face first thing in the morning and never go to bed without a good scrub, then follow it with Clinique Dramatically Different moisturizing lotion. I’m not a big product person; I like to keep it simple.

The best décor hack I've learned...

My apartment is small but has fantastic 15-foot ceilings. To utilize all of that extra vertical space I installed simple shelves made from raw planks of wood and white brackets. They’re excellent for showcasing all those little knickknacks that take up space but you don’t want to stow away.  

 

My interior stylist spirit animal is...

 

I would move into one of these fantastic new design hotels if they’d let me. Some of my favorites as of late are: G-Rough in Rome, Chicago Athletic Association in Chicago, Sant Francesc Hotel Singular in Palma de Mallorca, Halcyon House in Australia, to name just a few.  

This season, my go-to cocktail order is... 

 

Something classic, like a Manhattan or Old-Fashioned. If I’m eating right after and don’t want to fill up, I’ll go with a good rye and a splash of water.

The first lesson I learned as an Adult with a capital A... 

Comparing yourself to others is dangerous. I still learn that one daily.

 

The most surprising thing I learned from a MyDomaine story is...

That I’d do some pretty shameful things to call any of these spaces my own.
