On her favorite color: Red is my go to color—especially that YSL red. I have red sofas in my apartment and I warmed them up with a brown Fendi fur.
On her kitchen: I like that it's connected to the living area—I don't want my kitchen to feel like no man's land.
On closet organization: I used to be very specific and organize everything by item—a place for pants, a place for sweaters. This season my kids and I mixed everything up and now my closet feels like a store. People tell me I'm dressing better—it's because I can actually see my clothes.
On favorite holiday traditions: I'm a big pie maker—my kids love apple and my favorite is pecan.
On starting 2014 off right: I always redecorate right before the holidays, this way things are fresh and I can go into the new year with something different.
