1. Bedside reading: M.F.K. Fisher’s The Gastronomical Me , Tom Wolfe’s The Kingdom of Speech, J.D. Salinger’s The Escape Artist and Laurie Colwin’s Home Cooking.

2. Walk and Drink: a stack of Alexa Pulitzer to-go cups.

3. I like candles by SMOKE.

For the home:

1. I’m in love with these little tile topped side tables made by my friend Julia Reed available at Reed Smythe and Company.

2. I’m really into David Kaihoi’s tutsi green fabric at Schumacher and the Schumacher newsletter edited by my friend Dara Capanigro — it’s amazing.

3. A great design book is Ilse Crawford’s A Frame For Life.

4. For inspiration check out architect Vincent Van Duysen.
