The moment you knew you wanted to be in the Interior Design World

I’ve known since I’m 9 years old and have a grade school ‎”composition” to prove it! ‎

Tell me about a project or accomplishment that you consider to be most significant in your career?

I’m grateful that I’ve had many significant accomplishments in my career that I’m very proud. Most recently, I’d say it’s launching my own line of home furnishings. It’s the fulfillment of a lifelong dream!

What are elements of your signature style

I always say that “you never know where you’ll find inspiration, so always have an open mind and an open eye”. Everything I do is ‎infused with a modern mix of glam, luxe and a twist of something unexpected.

Are you a night owl or a morning person

Definitely a night owl! I love staying up late…it’s my special time alone.

What kitchen utensil do you use most frequently

Well…second to a phone (to order up!)…the custom live-edge cutting boards I designed for my new kitchen.

Describe your perfect pizza

Now‎ you’re talking…a good pizza is my favorite food! I dream about a coal oven, Margarita pizza with fresh mozzerella‎ and every veggie available on top! Guess what I’m going to have for dinner tonight?

Who is your secret celebrity crush

Liam Neeson

What time of day were you born

I was born at about 2 Am‎…maybe that’s why I’m such a night owl!

Do you follow astrology –  What is your zodiac sign

I know a bit about astrology. I’m an Aquarius with a Sagittarius rising and a Cancer moon. If you know a bit about astrology and know me…this makes perfect sense! I’m a creative humanitarian with an outgoing personality and my life centers around my home and family.

What would your DJ Name be

That’s an easy one . . . DJ Baroness!

Do you have a favorite number

Yes, 7…it’s always been my favorite number for as long as I can remember! my second favorite is 9.‎

How many pairs of shoes do you own

‎Oh, my! Way too many to count and more than I can wear.  It’s definitely an addiction!

Do you have a favorite fashion magazine

W and Elle, but the best place for fashion has to be the streets of NYC! Unless of course, you happen to be in Paris.

What is your “go-to” fashion brand

‎I like to be eclectic‎ and don’t follow, or buy, mostly one designer. That said, I always love Alexander McQueen and I recently bought a great Lela Rose, off the shoulder, pant outfit that I love.

If we were to peek in your closet, the dominant color would be

I don’t think I even have to answer that…EVERYONE knows the answer to that…BLACK! I wear it almost exclusively!‎

What is your present state of mind

Politics and world affairs aside, I’m grateful for all of the opportunities and feeling positive about life. I believe “the thoughts‎ you think to create the life you live.”  If we can all find gratitude in our lives and things to be positive about, we can change the world one person at a time!

It’s 6 pm at your favorite bar or restaurant, what drink do you order

One of two: a Kir Royal or a perfect, pale pink, shaken Cosmo, served in a Martini glass with just the bare hint of thin ice from shaking it perfectly before serving!

Do you awake with or without an alarm

‎Always and forever, without alarms.  I find them too jarring, I’ve never needed one. I have an internal alarm that I set every night and it’s never failed me!

Car, Taxi, Subway or Bike

UBER only, please!!!‎ UBER changed my life!

What song is ready to play on your playlist

Anything Ed Sheeran right now!‎

What is the last photo you took with your cell phone

A photo of me and some of my staff having fun at the High Point Market launch of my new Robin Baron home furnishings collections.

One of the best lessons my parents taught me is to

Surround yourself with good people and that there is nothing like family!

What is your favorite work of art

I LOVE art. It transforms a home and feeds my soul. I don’t have one single favorite, but I do have an affinity for modern abstract art!

What is your favorite building in Manhattan

I don’t even know where to begin, you just have to look up to be neverendingly inspired! Right now, I’m loving world-renowned Danish architect Bjarke Ingels’ new building, Via 57 West.

TIME Magazine top 100 Bjarke Ingels is his own breed of architect and a pioneer of angst-free design, according to his former boss and Pritzker Prize winner Rem Koolhaas
