Thank you for inviting us into your home! Tell us about the place!

[It's] like a treehouse. The children's treehouse connects to it, actually. It's very personal with little details everywhere. My partner Ramsey Conder and I made and designed a lot of the things in it. He made all of the lighting and hardware, the kitchen, our beds. It feels like you're on vacation somewhere very lush.

Talk to us about your kids’ rooms. What inspired you in creating their spaces?

We are always thinking about their needs depending on how they are growing. We just got Astrid a gorgeous woven dresser with brass details that have birds carved [into them]. She asked for drawers and now she has them! Ramsey just made Dimitri a trundle bed because he was ready for his own bed. Dimitri and Astrid helped paint it in a vibrant turmeric.

Do you have a favorite room in your home?

I love the kitchen. Ramsey and I designed it and it truly is a gem. It's filled with delicious food in jars on shelves or hanging from hooks in baskets. The countertops are all in Moroccan tile. The bottom half of the walls are a beautiful blue. There's a yellow Dutch door that opens to the deck that is open all day long. The windows face west so we get a sunset view.

What are some of your favorite elements in your home?

All of the things that Ramsey has made for it. He has a great eye and it really is like having jewelry all over your house. He makes all of our lighting and hardware like, hooks and shelf brackets out of bronze or brass. They age and patina beautifully with time and the elements.

Where are your favorite places to shop?

For myself, the Echo Park Craft Fair. I founded it eight years ago and my partner, Rachel Craven, an exquisite designer and I now curate and invite our most favorite makers that we know. It's my personal paradise of everything I love, want and desire. I shop for my whole family there, even for my home.

What do you think is the one aspect of motherhood no one really warns you about?

I was a pretty observant child. Being a parent looked hard AND IT IS! All of it is hard. Especially having to constantly compromise and meet everyone's needs.

We know schedules can be hectic— so tell us about yours!

My love and I trade off days. Sometimes he takes the children to school, [sometimes] I will. I make a potion of chai tea, and always add my Moon Juice dusts. Power, Brain, Spirit and Beauty. Sometimes all of the above, sometimes just one or two. I add almond butter, honey, hot water, and rose water and I drink deeply on the deck outside. Then, emails. I send out orders, my assistants arrive, we work some more and always break for lunch on the deck. I try to keep them sitting, eating for as long as possible. Then they remind me we should probably get back to work. Eventually, I pick up the children or they arrive. I make snacks and cocktails for Ramsey and I. Sometimes Margaret and Pavi (my assistants) will join us. I make dinner and we usually eat outside. We take baths or a shower outside if it's a warm night. Then it's off to books or storytelling and we go to bed. Sometimes I'll stay up and listen to my books on Audible.

If you could give your kids one piece of advice, what would it be?

Travel as much as you can. Live in different countries. Get to know all kinds of people.
