Fashion
Pucci’s beaded stripes and bold prints are inspiring me to use more tapes, trims, and tassels on window treatments and furniture.

Recent find
My hot pink, lacquered chest with bright green tassels from Oomph. It’s in my foyer as an introduction to what the rest of the house is about.

Collecting
Herend figurines. My husband gives me one every year for my birthday. Neiman Marcus, Lenox Square

Fabric

Getaway
The Palm Springs Time Machine, a house for rent that has barely been touched since 1969. When I retire, I plan to live in a house like that and wear caftans and drink pink drinks by the pool all day.

Chic eats
Le Fat and Golden Eagle. I live in Decatur, and SOS Tiki Bar has such a fun atmosphere.

Final touches
For accessories, I often go to trade sources like Global Views at AmericasMart, but I also love Jonathan Adler and his sassy, quirky sculpture and accessories.

Color
I’m loving Sherwin-Williams “Ravishing Coral.” I even had a custom color Phillip Jeffries wallpaper made.

“I recently got back from a trip to Mexico and am in a sunny and bright state of mind. I bought way too many pom poms and straw bags with colorful tassels.”
