What’s the most random thing in your office right now?
Could it be that beaded elephant or that pink parakeet? …Which one is the most random?… I don’t know!
There’s also a lot of pink in you’re office. Is pink your favorite color?
It’s one of my favorites, since I was a kid, but I like that bright pop. I’m stimulated by color so, I don’t like bland environments.
What’s the most prominent color in your life?
There is a fair amount of pink, but strong pink. I don’t really like pale pinks that much… a lot of red as well, fair amount of blue too! You know, I hate to single out one single color… there are sooo many amazing colors in the universe!
If you weren’t a designer, what would you be?
I would love to be an architect or maybe an interior decorator.
Which is your favorite building in the city?
It’s funny, I usually like the old ones. I like older architecture, interior-wise and exterior-wise, there was just so much more to explore and I think modern structures, it’s really about the shape and the silhouette and all that. But, the older structures, there’s just so much amazing detail. And you know, when you look at some of the buildings from the teens and the twenties you look up and its like, oh my god there’s color! There’s just amazing craftsmanship and a lot of that craftsmanship has died out… stone cutters and mason workers, glass people and the glazers who did all of the spectacular colored glass and stuff like that, that’s a dying breed. So, I really enjoy amazing craftsmanship and same thing if you go in a pre-war building, apartments were built for living you know what I mean? And there’s the storage and there are rooms and there’s some character to the spaces. I really appreciate that. And when I find that in modern structure, I’m super excited, because it’s like ok, this has it all for me… best of both worlds. So, I guess I’m drawn to a lot of older ones, where there’s spaces to explore.
