If you could change one thing about your bedroom, what would it be?
I want hardwood floors. I want them so bad! I think it would look so nice with the Esmont platform bed too. The carpet just ruins the look of what I want. We’re moving and that’s what we’re looking for. I said “next place we get, it will have hardwood floors.” Because I want a cute rug, a small one. I just love that look.
Do you remember the best sleep that you’ve ever had?
I’m a sleeper so I can sleep anywhere. I’ll have good sleep on an airplane. It’s hard to say, but I think I get the best sleep when I’m overseas—I don’t know why. I think it’s a combination of the water and the food, and my body just sleeps better at night. When I’m visiting my parents or any of my family in Switzerland, I sleep so well. I close my eyes and then the next thing it’s morning. It’s really interesting. Even my boyfriend slept better when we were over there.
Sometimes I’ll have crazy dreams and wake up a lot.
Do you remember a recent dream?
Last night I had a crazy dream. Growing up, I was really into musical theater. I wanted to be a star and that was my big thing when I was little, but then I got really shy after high school. After high school, Glee came out, but I never watched it because I was already studying fashion. I decided yesterday to start Glee because it’s on Netflix. I binge-watched the first season. In my dream last night, I saw all the people I used to perform with, and we were trying on all of our old costumes, and then we went out to a bar. We were singing! Watching Glee I was like, “I don’t know why I stopped doing all of that,” so it was funny to have a dream where I was back into it.
You have our Esmont platform bed in zero-VOC linseed oil. You’ve taken some gorgeous photos of it on your blog. Can you talk about the platform bed and what you like about it?
I think the most obvious part is that it’s a beautiful bed. I hadn’t had a bed in so long. We just had a mattress on the floor. I started getting into sustainability about 5 years ago when I didn’t have a bed. And I knew it was more than just clothing that I had to start being more conscious about. It was everything—my furniture too. It was kind of hard to find a sustainable bed. There really aren’t that many. I couldn’t really find what I was looking for. We put another bed on hold, and then you emailed me the next day. And I was like, “this is crazy”—I had never seen this bed and I immediately fell in love with it and I couldn’t believe I hadn’t found it already. It had everything that I was looking for. From start to finish—the way it was made, the wood, the finishing, the aesthetic. And knowing that it’s only coming from a few states away is pretty amazing too. Most of the furniture in the States is not actually coming from here. It was the complete package, and I couldn’t be more excited about this bed. And putting it together was so easy!
