Chiara: My current color crush … persimmon/rust and emerald green with navy and a hint of gold.
The space I would move into tomorrow … This changes quite literally day to day and coast to coast. But as of right now, in this moment, I am obsessed with Harlem. The historic Mount Morris district. And I would love a mess of a townhouse that hasn’t been touched in 40 years.
I learned [about motherhood] from [Lesley Blume] … My dear friend, the writer, Lesley Blume owns her own professional pursuits as much as she owns motherhood. She never apologizes for either. She just owns being a mother and owns being a professional and does so with humor and wit and chicness. When I watch her in action, I remind myself that I do not need to apologize for being a working mother. Instead I am inspired to embrace it.
Song that best describes me… I don’t really have an answer for this. I will say that in this moment I love listening to Christine and the Queens. “Tilted” is great. I wouldn’t say that describes me though.
My go-to dish/drink to make when guests are coming in an hour … bolognese with kamut fusilli.
Advice to my 2017 self … Playing with my toddler reminds that we all still have a child within us, and I want to tap into that freedom, goofiness and spontaneity more.
