1. What started it all for you?
2. What drives your creative spark?
3. Most treasured home decor item?
My red Kartell Eros Swivel chair. It was the first piece of furniture I bought for my studio apartment. The first apartment I'd be living in by myself. I discovered the chair on Pinterest and saved it to a home inspo board. Then months later I was perusing on OfferUp and saw the same exact chair! I screamed and knew I had to get it. I felt so proud. It felt like the first piece of furniture I bought that felt just like me.
4. What’s the best advice you've ever received?
Tell people about your dreams and visions. Don't keep it to yourself. The first step to making it into something real is sharing it with someone you love and trust. Also, do what comes naturally to you. That whatever you're supposed to be doing will align with what you are able to do with the most ease. And joy.
5. It's 5 o'clock at home. What would you be pouring?
Chlorophyll water. I'm kind of obsessed. It gives me a nice, subtle energy boost. Plus, the color of the green is magical. Makes me feel like I'm drinking a potion.

"Writing is the blood that connects them all. To simplify how I arrived here, what started it all was a deep love for the way things made me feel. And a call, to make something out of what I felt." -Halleta Alemu
