Profile: Design DNA

Amy of Design DNA

One of my favorite bloggers is Amy at Design DNA. Everyday I wait with anticipation to see what beautiful finds and photos Amy will post for the day (and most days there are several). If you’ve not seen this delightful blog you must visit Design DNA. It’s a wonderful collection of uniquely gorgeous and unusual objects.

Which interior designer would you most like to meet?
Andree Putman
How would you spend the day?
On a rocky beach, under an umbrella, with pen and paper, excitedly talking and drawing.
What is your favorite CD at the moment?
This is a hard one....I guess I will stick with a constant favorite, one of which is the small faces, a nod is as good as a a blind horse. Takes me right back to wild but simpler times.
What personal characteristics do you most dislike in a person?
If you could vacation anywhere in the world where would it be?
This is an impossible question! I guess either Paris or Ouro Preto, Brazil on Easter week. The entire week is filled with celebrations and re-enactments, but the night before Easter each family decorates a section of road with flowers and murals made from colored sawdust. All of the murals connect into a seamless, multi-colored carpet completely covering the one lane streets from one side of town to the other. Easter morning the children put on their fanciest clothes and a pair of angel wings, some of which are large and elaborate, some home made, and walk in procession over the multi-colored sawdust carpet from one side of town to the other, ending up at the cathedral for Easter service. I’m pretty sure the beauty of it would make me tip over and cry.
What is your favorite luxury in life?
The ocean
What is your favorite place to shop?
Goosebay lumber, Takishimaya, Louis Boston
What is your most prized possession?
The artwork and Christmas decorations we have made ourselves over the years and my husband's accolades.
Who is your favorite style icon?
I guess I do not have a favorite style icon. I do love French girl everyday chic. A little quirky, not over the top.
