Why do you like shopping Chairish?
The selection of vintage items is amazing and there are options for every budget.

What do you love about designing with vintage decor?
I love designing with vintage décor pieces because it is necessary for every great space to have sense of history and a collected feeling.

What was your best vintage score?
Vintage street lamps I found at the flea market in Paris.

What are you most inspired by right now?
Right now I’m very inspired by bohemian, slightly retro patterns, textures and colors that have an artisan edge. Anything handmade or hand-painted is at the top of my list.

What is your golden design rule?
Keep the proportions interesting, yet functional.

Best way to add drama to a room?
In my opinion the best ways to add drama to a room are with lighting and art.

What’s your design signature?
I am known for monochromatic color palettes with layers of texture and pattern. Comfort, livability and a touch of glamour are also key elements to my style.

Trend you hope never makes a comeback?
The trend I hope never makes a comeback is red lacquer…on anything!

What’s your dream project?
I would absolutely love to design a boutique hotel in my home city, Los Angeles.

Space you can’t get out of your mind?
We are in the process of designing my new studio in a 1920s building in the heart of LA’s design community. It used to be a dance studio, so the space has very inspiring energy.

What’s your favorite local escape?
I love to escape to my own bed – there’s no place like home.

What is your favorite neighborhood restaurant in L.A.?
My favorite neighborhood restaurant is a small Lebanese joint called Open Sesame. Their Chicken Tawook is clean, fresh and tasty – basically a kebab with fresh veggies and tahini sauce.
