Z: What’s on the top of your holiday wish list this year?
AL: A set of really gorgeous, personalized stationery. Letterpress on 100% cotton paper with a pop of fabulous color. For me, that is the definition of luxury.
“Scene of Fields II” by Anew McKnight
Acrylic, 10″ x 10″ $200
Z: If you could have any piece of art on Zatista.com, regardless of price or size, what would it be and why?
AL: I am naturally drawn to abstract artwork. My grandfather was a wildlife painter and I think my love of contemporary or abstract art is a rebellion of sorts from the work that I grew up with. I love “Scene of Fields II” by Anew McKnight. It’s gorgeous! It’s modern yet warm and approachable. It has a depth of color that I love and could easily stare at for hours. It’s a fun piece that won’t break the bank.
Z: What’s your favorite holiday indulgence or “guilty pleasure”?
AL: Every year my mother-in-law puts little caramel chocolate Santas from her local gourmet grocer in my husband’s stocking and I swipe them and hide them in my bedside table so I can keep them all to myself. It’s terrible…but blissful!
Z: What are some things you like to do to your home or apartment to make it feel like the holidays?
AL: In our home we go all out. A big beautiful tree, fires in the fireplace every night, hot cocoa and George Winston’s December playing in the background. Although now that we have a toddler, it will probably Alvin and the Chipmunks.
Z: Are you going anywhere special this holiday season? If so, where?
AL: This holiday season we’re going to the best place on earth…nowhere! We’re skipping the crowds, the chaos and the stress and staying home with our pajamas and hot chocolate. We couldn’t be happier about it!
