WOVN HOME: Who do you most admire? 

I am such a fan of Pamela Shamshiri and her ability to marry modern interiors with a respect for architecture, even in traditional spaces. She adds a touch of whimsy, color and sophistication. She has it all.

What is your favorite memory from your childhood home?

I have such a strong memory of the amazing mix of Chinese antiques and modern 70s art and furniture that my parents had growing up in Hong Kong. I also remember this beautiful salmon colored wall that my dad painted, with a collection of paintings.  It’s a color that I come back to time and again.

Where is your favorite window and why?

I love old windows but I think my favorites are curved corner windows in art deco buildings. They’re equally cool from the exterior view to indoors. I love the way they define a space - a breakfast area or reading nook surrounded by a soft curve of windows.

What’s one of your most treasured souvenirs?

I bought this beautiful etching in Venice when I was traveling with my friend after high school. It has lived in college dorm rooms in an ikea frame, apartments in Boston and New York and eventually upgraded to a beautiful gold custom frame and lives on the wall in my corridor.  It reminds me of those carefree times and my love of finding things when I travel.

What’s in your cart?

Jewelry by Grainne Morton. I discovered her stuff at a store in Asheville and am obsessed!

What’s one thing you’d like your work to be known for? 

Playfulness. I never want my spaces to take themselves too seriously.

Where’s your happy place? 

In my garden. Or rather, at the garden center buying plants for my garden! I don’t have a method to my madness but I absolutely love finding and learning about new plants and flowers and testing them out.

What’s for dinner?

Anything with fresh tomatoes from my garden.  I especially love roasting them with basil, garlic, olive oil and having just that with a baguette and wine. 

Where to next?

Panama! We are heading to Panama with our kids for fall break and I am so excited to see the architecture in the casco viejo, the engineering marvels of the canal and all the natural wonders!

What’s the song that gets you going on a slow day?

Kids by MGMT - reminds me of driving down the Pacific Coast Highway

What’s your favorite…

Color: Ask me tomorrow and it will probably be different but at the moment any shade of green.
Weekend activity: Trying out new restaurants around town and hitting up estate sales
Museum: the Nasher Sculpture Garden in Dallas - love the mix of landscape and art
Piece of advice: Interior Design isn’t brain surgery.  I always like to remember that an interior design emergency is not a life and death situation.  We all want to make clients happy, but it helps to have some perspective.
