What’s next in 2014?
I think we'll see more dark and muted tones acting as neutral paint colors for the home. They'll no longer be relegated to a single room or an accent wall. I'd also love to see more monochromatic rooms, where the trim and walls are painted the same color and create a dramatic backdrop for the space. The new Farrow & Ball blue and gray shades are especially handsome.
It's all about the pants for the style-obsessed. Boyfriend, slouchy jeans are replacing skinnies (again) and we'll see more versions of pants as formalwear—from wide leg trousers to cropped and embellished styles. Look for cutouts and mixed prints as well.

Which trends is it time to say good-bye to?
Speaking of pants, I'm gladly waving on the drop-crotch harem versions that showed up this year. I'd also be happy if I never saw chevron-printed anything in the home again.
What's you favorite piece in your wardrobe?
My Celine luggage tote was a gift from my sister and will remain in my closet forever. The red shade is called 'lipstick' and the classic shape is timeless. It dresses up sweatpants!
What's your favorite thing in your home?
On our honeymoon to Italy, on a boat ride to Capri, I took a shot of the blue water of the Mediterranean, and had it enlarged to hang over the credenza in our living room. The jumbo size makes it appear to be a graphic blocked print, which I love, but it also reminds me of that magical place and a perfect day.
What's always in style?
I will always be an accessories girl, but as I get older, I see the beauty in the classic minimalist pieces: crisp white button down, black ankle cropped pants, and a timeless trench.
