10 ques­tions with Chris­telle Scifo

Real Living (Australia) - - LOVING -

1. What are your morn­ing rit­u­als ? An espresso and my beauty rou­tine. If time al­lows it, le­mon-in­fused wa­ter, stretch­ing and a swim.

2. What are your favourite flow­ers? Pop­pies and tulips for their shape and move­ment, camel­lias and daphnes, which bloom around my birth­day, and the mag­no­lia for its sum­mer scent.

3. What did you want to be when you grew up? A bal­le­rina, then a fash­ion ed­i­tor be­cause I grew up with a love of design, fash­ion and beauty.

4. Where do you feel most at home? Home is by the sea in Syd­ney, where my fam­ily and friends live. I used to live in Paris and it’s a ne­ces­sity to go at least once a year, for the in­spi­ra­tion and cul­ture that I miss so much.

5. What music do you lis­ten to when you work? Al­most any­thing, es­pe­cially clas­si­cal music to fo­cus – that’s the bal­le­rina in me. Serge Gains­bourg, Ni­co­las Jaar, Solange, Lana Del Rey, Françoise Hardy…

6. What tal­ent would you most like to pos­sess? Singing.

7. What trait do you most ad­mire in oth­ers? I love to see com­pas­sion, love and hu­man­ity in other peo­ple’s eyes and ac­tions. 8. What is your great­est in­dul­gence? My an­nual trips to Paris.

9. How do you re­lax? A bal­let or Pi­lates class to quiet my mind and switch off. An ocean swim and book on the beach, rum­mag­ing through vin­tage stores, and in the evening, a glass of red wine.

10. What was the last book you read? Les Fleurs du Mal by Baude­laire.
