Interior Designer / Founder of Tina Ramchandani Creative
Tell me about a project or accomplishment that you consider to be the
most significant in your career
I’ve worked on projects around the world and each project is different from the last. It’s difficult to pick one that is most significant, because each comes with it’s own learning experiences, successes and speed bumps!
What things do you not like to do
Does living in New York during winter count? Anything that requires me to be outside in the extreme cold. I’m all about summer.
What is your perfect pizza
Margarita with a very thin crust. Motorino is one of my favorites!
What kitchen utensil do you use most frequently
Blender – I have a protein shake every morning to start my day.
Who is your secret celebrity crush
Ben Affleck, pre-nanny scandal, post Jennifer Lopez.
Are you a night owl or a morning person
Mostly a morning person. It’s hard for me to get out of bed, but once I’m up I’m ready to start my day.
What time of day were you born
Do you know your heritage
Yes, thanks to my parents!
Do you follow astrology? What zodiac sign are you
A bit, but not religiously. I’m a Gemini.
12. What would your DJ Name be
Do you have a favorite number
How many pairs of shoes do you own
I won’t dare count them! Even after using the Marie Kondo method to declutter my shoe collection is still overflowing.
What is your present state of mind?
Relaxed and happy
It’s 6pm at your favorite bar or restaurant, what drink do you order
Do you awake with or with an alarm
Definitely with an alarm! I snooze for about an hour and a half before I wake up.
Uber, Taxi, Subway or Citi Bike?
Most of the time I take the subway but Uber is my backup.
What song is ready to play on your playlist
Hotline bling by drake
I just got back from a trip with my cousins from Morocco and these were on repeat. Every time I hear them I get incredibly happy because we had such a great time!
What is the last photo you took with your cell phone
I’m a little obsessed with instagram! Last photos were of oysters with friends on Saturday and a beautiful shot of a new Indian restaurant I visited on Sunday. It’s designed in monochrome with bright artwork that brings the place to life.
If we were to peek in your closet, the dominant color would be
One of the best lessons my parents taught me is
Hard work and a good attitude will get you everywhere.
What is your favorite work of art?
Black Square by Kazimir Malevich. I love Malevich’s approach to Suprematism, and the thought that simple forms
and colors, broken down, can evoke emotion and be beautiful. Because it’s in Moscow I have yet to see it in person!
What is your favorite building in Manhattan
At the moment it’s the new Whitney, but I can never get over the New York Public Library and the Guggenheim.
