udg­ing by her vi­brant jew­elry col­lec­tion, one might as­sume de­signer Rox­anne As­soulin’s home is sim­i­larly bright. But the re­al­ity couldn’t be more dif­fer­ent. Her dé­cor is a serene blend of stone col­ors, and at the cen­ter of it all is her fa­vorite place: her bed. “I live in my bed. I write ev­ery morn­ing, and I do it in bed. I read in bed. I take calls and do all my emails from there. It feels co­cooned and safe.” For the fash­ionin­dus­try vet­eran and long-time New Yorker, find­ing that quiet space is es­sen­tial. “I’m dressed all day long, and this is the one place I’m not dressed,” she says, laugh­ing. “Well, I’m in pa­ja­mas.”

I couldn’t live in a world of color. It’s too dis­tract­ing.”

“I al­ways say my apart­ment is like a ho­tel suite. It’s a home, but it feels very quiet and calm for me.” “I like the Ja­panese way: You buy stuff, you use it, you scratch it up. It’s not per­fect, but it’s use­ful and it’s ef­fi­cient and it’s kind.”

“My books have taught me so much be­cause you travel through them. You get to know peo­ple through them.”
