DESTINATION ALL THINGS SUMMER! I JUST WRAPPED THE SUMMER ISSUE OF BEVERLY HILLS LIFESTYLE MAGAZINE + I AM SO INSPIRED BY ALL THE GORGEOUS CONTENT. FROM OUR CHIC FASHION SHOOT IN SANTA BARBARA FEATURING STUNNING MISSONI COUTURE TO THE BEAUTIFUL IMAGERY OF ANTOINE VERGLAS, SHOWCASING ST BARTHS (MY ALL TIME FAVORITE DESTINATION). IF I AM HONEST, SUMMER IS ONE OF MY MOST IMPORTANT MUSES. SHE INSPIRES ME THROUGH HER LAID-BACK LIFESTYLE, SOFT WARM BREEZES AND WATER/SKY BLUES. I FIND THAT I SKETCH MORE, READ MORE AND BASICALLY FILL UP MY CREATIVE TANK IN THE SUMMER. MY NEXT FURNITURE COLLECTION IS STARTING TO TAKE SHAPE + JUST IN TIME FOR MILAN SPRING 2019 . . .  I GUESS SUMMER IS JUST MY THING!

Fall Obsessions

Destination St. Barth’s, French West Indies. I’m just back from a week in the French West Indies and I am literally gaga over with this chic exotic island. St Barth’s has a beauty all to its own – the island has stunning beaches (think very sophisticated beach lifestyle) cool architecture combined with effortless French flair. From Avant-garde local clothing designers to unique eateries this island stop is worth an incredibly long visit. I am absolutely entranced in how the island culture effortless mixes modern European details with a unique boho vibe – think Bridget Bardot meets Malibu – so inspiring!
