SAH: What’s on your bedside table right now?
BB Because I begin and end my day in the bedroom, I consider it the most important room in the house, so I work hard to keep it fresh and uncluttered. On my beautiful bedside table I have a small tray holding a carafe of fresh water and a crystal tumbler, my old wooden Baccarat clock, a little fresh-cut something (lavender, a rose, even a green leaf), artfully arranged books and my iPad if I’m listening to something. All of this creates this important little “moment” that I’ve styled for myself. These things aren’t out there for others to see; they’re for me. Even the inside of my refrigerator is a thing of beauty!
SAH: How so?
BB When I go to the farmers’ market on Saturday, I come home and spend half of the day washing and arranging fruit in glass bowls and pouring milk out of the carton and into a glass jug. A cursory glance is as important as sitting and looking at something closely – seeing it on the inside as well as out.
