I am EMPOWERED by: Theodore Roosevelt?s ?The Man in The Arena,? an attitude and approach that I strive to live by.
I am INSPIRED by: The incredibly talented designers and architects in this industry.
I am ENAMORED by: Most recently?Renaissance egg tempera paintings.
Name your favorite historic building: There are so many, yet the Western Wall in Jerusalem is such a marvel that it?s at the top of my list. I took the tunnel tour a few years ago and was awed by the power of Herod?s construction.
I first fell in love with design: As a young girl, sitting through operas at the Metropolitan Opera House in Lincoln Center. The space, designed by Wallace K. Harrison, is intoxicating, and I am still mesmerized by the iconic starburst chandeliers that ascend to the ceiling.
Favorite heirloom in your home: An R.J. Horner antique beveled-glass china cabinet handed down to me from my grandmother. It originally belonged to her mother.
My pets are: Two Shih Tzus, Senge and Tashi, whom I love unconditionally, especially when they greet me at the door, tails wagging away, after a business trip.
The last best style accessory I purchased was: A pair of made-to-order boots while I was in Florence. They take at least eight weeks to craft and ship (I?m still waiting!), and I appreciate the anticipation, and specialness, of receiving something made by hand with great care by artisans.
