2. Wine from Amanti Vino
I’m a big believer in supporting female entrepreneurs, and Sharon Sevrens of Amanti Vino in Montclair, NJ, was one of our first Women Who Own It. She’s smart, talented, and knows how to curate a great selection of wine. Recently, I’ve been popping into her store for recommendations on what to sip during our weekly Wine and Design chats. Current faves include the Mocali Cabernet Sauvignon Toscana Rosso and the Point Ormond Shiraz Heathcote, both hearty reds that feel apropos for fall and cooler temperatures.
3. The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing by Marie Kondo
Marie Kondo’s philosophy has so deeply impacted my design motto that I now gift copies of her book to our online design clients as part of their welcome package. First and foremost in my rules of design: declutter. As Marie Kondo says, “only keep what brings you joy.” Once you are down to your best stuff, don’t add to it lightly.
And, the phrase “Kondo that shit” has definitely crept into my design vernacular. Such a Michigan girl at heart…
4. Stella and Dot Tassel Earrings
When it comes to my wardrobe, I’m a uniform kind of girl. Simple, classic, and low maintenance is how I roll. Bold accessories are my go-to when I want to add a little something extra. Currently, I’m feeling a messy bun paired with tassel earrings, and a neutral lip gloss to round everything out.
