I love ex­er­cis­ing in the morn­ing. I’ll go for a run, play ten­nis, or ride my Pelo­ton. Any­thing to get me up and mov­ing. It clears my head and lets me start the day.

Parc de Ba­gatelle in Paris is the most ro­man­tic garden with so many dif­fer­ent kinds of roses. My favourite is the “Lit­tle Prince.”

Ca­role King, Ta­pes­try, is my most-played record. A true clas­sic.

Tequila straight up on the roof of Sevva is my favourite drink. The most beau­ti­ful view in Hong Kong.

I just saw the Korean Fur­ni­ture Mu­seum in Seoul; it’s the per­fect ex­am­ple of re­straint with a dis­tinct de­sign phi­los­o­phy of sim­plic­ity, bal­ance and pro­por­tion.

Jung Chang’s [memoir] Wild Swans, about three gen­er­a­tions of women in China, is a book that left an im­pres­sion on me. Beau­ti­fully writ­ten, heart­break­ing, but hope­ful.

An­tigua is the best place for a fam­ily va­ca­tion. We love to play ten­nis, fish and surf. It is the most peace­ful place in the world.

The Clois­ters, a branch of the Metropoli­tan Mu­seum in the north of Man­hat­tan, is my se­cret spot for gain­ing de­sign in­spi­ra­tion. It’s me­dieval art and ar­chi­tec­ture set in beau­ti­ful, pe­riod gar­dens. I love it be­cause you feel like you have stepped into the past.

I love dis­cov­er­ing new ci­ties and re­cently vis­ited Am­s­ter­dam. We wan­dered for the day and ended with a boat ride through the canals.

I can’t leave home with­out my cam­era. It’s my vis­ual mem­ory bank.

My most use­ful gad­get apart from a smart­phone? A charger!

Right now I am into In­vis­i­bilia. It’s a fas­ci­nat­ing NPR pod­cast run by two women that melds sci­ence and sto­ry­telling.

Via Carota in the West Vil­lage [New York] is one of my top restau­rants for group din­ner. Al­ways de­li­cious, the food is fresh, tra­di­tional and served fam­ily style.

I swear by fa­cials with [New York-based fa­cial­ist] Tracie Mar­tyn – the LED treat­ments are re­lax­ing and ef­fec­tive.

I love my pair of Carlo Bu­gatti chairs. They add an un­ex­pected bold­ness to any room.
