Many things including nature, life and the way people live.
Always keep it casual, of course!

Anything. It’s the thought that counts. Flowers, wine, or soap; A general rule of thumb is to bring something that can be used up.
By creating a relaxed and easygoing atmosphere. I invite everyone to make themselves at home. I’m usually cooking and the live entertainment.
Yes, it was a friends’ home in the Hamptons and I helped her spruce things up. It was quite fun and taught me to trust myself and my decisions.
Interior architecture and design. I love the whole process from demolition and rebuilding to decorating the newly renovated space.
My process always starts with conversations with my clients; it is important for me to hear how they live and what they want to accomplish in regards to their home. Next, I study the floorplans and work out a design plan based on these and what I’ve gathered from conversations with my clients.
I believe that my clients always know what they want, even if they say that they don’t; which means it’s key to listen closely to what they are saying. If I was offering decorating advice to someone I would tell them this as well- they already know what they want, they should trust their instincts- usually, the first thought is the right one.

Luxurious. There is nothing better at the end of the day than to slide into nice, crisp sheets.
Percale. I love the feeling of freshly ironed sheets.
