MY 10 FA­VORITE THINGS: LIZA CRESPO. This lovely eco-ar­chi­tect shares the things she loves at home.

Fa­vorite Re­cy­cling Trick

“I never throw out nice whisky bot­tles. I fi­nally fig­ured out a way to up­cy­cle them. I bought scented oils and got these wooden sticks to make them in into dif­fuser bot­tles.”

Fa­vorite Home Scent “Faë Can­dle in Sil­vergil. It has that vanilla scent, and what I love is that they have a re­cy­cling pro­gram where you can re­turn old vases and get a dis­count for your new pur­chase.” Find Faë Can­dle in Sil­vergil at­the­

Fa­vorite Home Ac­ces­sory “Ter­rar­ium. Just hav­ing a liv­ing, breath­ing ob­ject there makes a big dif­fer­ence. It also helps fil­ter the air some­how.” Find sim­i­lar at The Green­house Project, In­sta­gram @the­green­house­pro­jectph

Fa­vorite Area in the House “My home of­fice. This is my sanc­tu­ary, where I could re­ally get the cre­ative juices flow­ing. I could eas­ily spend hours work­ing on build­ing projects or new bag de­signs.”

Fa­vorite Color Com­bi­na­tion “It changes with the sea­son and with the phases in my per­sonal life. I went thru a blue phase, a black phase, now I’m go­ing through a red and pink phase.” Try Chili Pep­per, Heart to Heart, and Lady in Red, all from Ace Paints.

Fa­vorite Pickme-up Treat “Noth­ing like caramel sun­dae and large fries on a gloomy day.”

Fa­vorite Home Design Book “Valentino at the Em­peror’s Ta­ble, just be­cause no one en­ter­tains like the master him­self. There are ex­quis­ite ta­ble set­tings, which vary with the themes of his homes all over the world.” Get it at Fully Booked.

Fa­vorite Travel Des­ti­na­tion

“Mar­rakech. The tex­tures, sights, sounds, and smells are a feast for the senses. As a de­signer, it to­tally re­ju­ve­nates me to go to these types of places where you feel happy to be alive.”

Fa­vorite Home Gad­get

“I’m a be­liever in es­sen­tial oils...I put my aro­mather­apy oils in this dif­fuser. It helps put me in the right mood.” Find sim­i­lar at Our Home.
