As an interior designer, I’m actually acting as a curator for my clients—they pay me for my eye, for my ability to edit, distill and procure. I’m drawing upon my experience and expertise—my knowledge of art, antiques, furniture and decorative objects—to bring together a cohesive collection of beautiful things that’ll live together in the environments I create. Of course I continually hone my sensibilities through travel, and I keep my finger on the pulse of what’s happening closer to home as well, at art museum exhibits, galleries, and auction houses and anywhere that inspiration can be found. Needless to say this role as curator gives me huge pleasure and I’m always on the prowl for the most perfect pieces.
Recently at the Ralph Lauren Home Collection showroom I fell in love with the very handsome life size wooden horse pictured above. Many of my clients are horse people so I’m pretty sure there’ll be a fight over this unique piece—it’d certainly make a dramatic statement in any of the equestrian themed rooms I’ve created for them!
I’m captured at the super chic Ralph Lauren showroom sporting a vintage Worth & Worth parabuntal straw hat, Gucci pale sand silk jacket, Michael Kors ivory cotton knit shirt with crocheted placket, Uniglo white denim jeans, Etro floral and paisley silk pocket square, Tom Ford cotton voile scarf, “Nicolo” sunglasses and brown leather sandals, vintage Rolex watch and my fragrance is Tom Ford Lavender Palm.
