What is inspiring you right now?

House & Garden Magazine, Gregory Blake Sams Events, and Tom Scheerer’s most recent feature in Elle Decor.

 

What are your favorite entertaining pieces in your home?

I love a console that becomes an accidental bar! It’s so versatile, and feels extremely welcoming. I also have a budding collection of spongeware that is my go-to.

 

What is your home decor style?

Transitional–I appreciate the mix. Think: A floral chintz coupled with a contemporary work of art. The juxtaposition becomes extremely harmonious.

 

What are your current three favorite finds from the Freshly Set websites?

Pomegranate Paisley Tablecloth | Iraca Placemat | Pomegranate Jade Paisley Napkin.

 

What events will you use Freshly Set for?

Al-fresco dinner parties where the guest list continues to grow, or celebratory events that call for place cards and more.

Who are your dream dinner party guests?

Oprah, Micheal S. Smith, Lauren Santo Domingo, Wes Gordon, Keith McNally, Ian Schrager–how many people can I invite?

 

Your go-to hostess gift?

A bottle of wine (with the most perfect label).

 

What is the most inspiring event you ever attended and why?

For New Years in 2019, I traveled across the pond and spent time at Soho Farmhouse in the Cotswolds. I rang in the New Year there and it was truly exceptional— from simple but delicious cocktails, a live band playing old school songs, and an outstanding fireworks show —it was pure magic.

 

If you could invite six insta-friends to your next party, who would they be?
