1.Who would you want to play you in a movie?
Audrey Tautou or Juliet Binoche. Sassy hair, cute figures, high cheekbones, international appeal.
2.I wish I could….
Design a collection of home accessories based on the stockpile of antique and vintage home goods, textiles and miscellaneous bits and baubles I’ve collected over years. Updated and refreshed but imbued with a vintage aesthetic.
3.My first style memory is…
As a young girl my mother would take me with her to fabric stores and I so desperately wanted a dollhouse I would obsess over all the small printed fabrics. I distinctly remember saying “this would make really cute wallpaper or drapes in a doll house.” I never got a dollhouse, which might explain my life long affection for all miniature things and my love of interior design.
4.I could not live with out my….
My eyesight. It is how I absorb the world, get inspired and tweak what I see in my head. I dream in images so it would be nearly impossible to make my visions a reality without seeing it. It is also the grand reward when you spent years, months, weeks, days and hours plotting, planning and producing great images.
Seeing it finished is like getting a great big trophy.
5.I could live without…
You don’t get anywhere in this world alone. There will always be people to thank and people to help so I could live without people that aren’t grateful and helpful. There are too many “takers” in the world already.
Pick a photo or décor object, or piece of clothing that defines your style.
I feel this image demonstrates my fondness for layering and composition. I have curated assortment of old but not necessarily fancy things. I’m really keen about the color blue, mostly indigo and greenish blues. And then there is my aforementioned infatuation with vintage miniatures (tiny chair collection is out of control!). It pretty much sums me up. I like organized clutter and I’m a bit quirky. For Your Style I'd Walk a Mile : Tags: liz demos
