DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE | I don’t think I can pinpoint one particular thing to describe my style, or any particular theme. I like unique pieces, and while I love color, I tend to keep the big items neutral. The same can be said for my wardrobe! I like investing in classic staples across the board, and then having fun with everything else.
FAVORITE MOVIE | Mean Girls
FAVORITE PLACE TO SCORE FINDS FOR YOUR HOME | Furbish of course! When I’m not drooling over everything at Furbish, I like to peruse Antique Malls for hours – it’s my thing, my happy place. I love finding unique items and oddities to fill our tiny house with!
IMPROMPTU TALENT SHOW – HOW DO YOU WIN | Wiggling my ears
YOU OWN A PHOTO BOOTH?! | Not just any photo booth…Hot Dog! Photo Booth. It’s a blast. I just have an obsession with taking pics in photo booths, so why not create one of my own so I can have endless access?!
FOOL PROOF DINNER PARTY TIP | Cheese tray upon arrival. So easy and always a crowd pleaser. I also love doing a signature cocktail!
WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE PLANET | Earth! Because it has all the hot dogs, and I love hot dogs.
IF YOU WERE A BOXER WHAT SONG WOULD YOU WALK OUT TO | Anything Kanye, except that 808s and Heartbreaks album…WTF?
HOW IS YOUR PLANT GAME | Horrendous. So bad that I kill succulents…SUCCULENTS! How do you even do that?
FAVORITE BOOK | Harry Potter can’t be beat.
GUILTY PLEASURE | Cookie Dough Ice Cream
WHAT DO YOU COLLECT | Matchbooks, cameras, bracelets, mugs. I love to remember the places we’ve been, and while I would just plaster my walls with photos from our life, I think collecting matchbooks and mugs from those locations is probably a more sane option.
FAVORITE PIECE OF CLOTHING RIGHT NOW | I just bought a long, striped knit dress from Madewell and haven’t taken it off since I got it. It’s got a little stretch in it, so it’s super comfy. I pretty much love everything at Madewell…so I have a lot of their pieces in my closet!
LAST PLACE YOU TRAVELED | I went to Portland, OR and Kansas City, MO last week for some shoots…but more interestingly I went to Istanbul (#furbishtravels!) and Paris in July.
WHAT DID YOU BRING BACK | Mugs and matchbooks of course to add to the collections, coffee from some delicious PDX coffee shops, rugs from Turkey (kilims on kilims on kilims), and macarons from Paris!
WHAT’S YOUR NEXT HOME PROJECT | We are going to be painting the outside of our house and installing a porch swing soon. Also a new kitchen floor and custom drapes! So many projects…it never ends.
WHAT’S UP WITH JUNE YOUR DOG – WHY’S SHE ALWAYS CREEPIN’ | She’s cray. She is scared of everything, so she likes to stay close (unless she’s shaking under the bed which is common too). We love her, but she’s definitely an odd ball!
FAVORITE DESIGNERS – As mentioned, I believe in investing in classic staples, so lovely leather hand bags that will last years (I drool over Celine), beautiful black pumps (Manolo baby), and lasting denim (J Brand and Rag & Bone). As far as things I lust after, I would like to have all of the Isabel Marant shoes, and I would wear Chloe all day, all day. But, let’s be serious, I still shop heavily at F21 and you already know I love Madewell. I also love shopping vintage for unique finds and steals!
WHAT ANIMAL ARE YOU THE MOST AFRAID OF | Snakes…but also spiders…and pretty much anything creepy crawly.
WHERE DO YOU WANT TO TRAVEL NEXT – Amir and I have had Southeast Asia on our bucket list for a very long time…I think it may be time to tackle that one in the next year or so!
WHERE’S YOUR FAVORITE PLACE TO SPEND A LAZY SUNDAY MORNING IN YOUR HOME | Right now…the couch. It’s so hot all I want to do is stay inside, order Asian take out and veg on the couch watching True Detective. When it cools down, we love to sit on the deck, listen to music, drink mimosas…and eat Asian take out probably!
WHAT DO YOU ALWAYS ASK THE DJ TO PLAY | Beyonce
DO YOU HAVE ANY TATTOOS | No – you’re welcome, Mom!
WHO DO YOU LIVE WITH | My husband Amir and our June Bug pup!
WHAT’S IN YOUR FRIDGE ON THE REG | Perrier. And white wine. Beverages all day…who needs food?
WHAT WOULD YOU SAVE IN A FIRE | My cameras and our photos…after I save my June Bug of course.
