10 questions with samantha pynn

sammy1 You know those email surveys that you fill out, and then forward to the next person? I asked  Samantha Pynn, host of HGTV's Pure Design and Contributing Design Editor here at STYLE AT HOME to fill out my own version... Here goes! Heels or flats? " Heels!" Favourite art? "I love so many different types of art. Sculpture, glass, painting, photos. I love Virginia Macdonald's photography, and so many of the gorgeous paintings from Art Interiors; Lisa and Shira have a wonderful eye for talent." Favourite rooms? "Living and dining. I grew up in a house with an open living/dining room at the front of the house. We used that space for reading, listening to music, playing and of course dining - we were just in them all the time and I love and live in my living/dining room the most. It's usually the most finished and gracious room in the house, and for me, the most lived-in." Favourite gadget? "I am a gadget reject. But I love my pink Canon camera. These days I am all about documenting life." Favourite neighbourhood restaurant? "Fresh by Juice for Life! Is Starbucks a restaurant?" Bag or clutch? "Big bag! I carry everything. I never know when I'm going to need a tape measure or floral snips!" Who inspires you in interior design? "Steven Gambrel, Thom Filicia, David Overholt - former design editor at STYLE AT HOME, interior designer and my mentor. Julia Black and Malcolm Patterson -- two designers who I work with and adore. We've been together since season one of Pure Design." Favourite eco-friendly decorating item? "Vintage furniture! I just pulled over and lifted a settee into the back of my hatch!" Favourite design you've created? "So hard... I madeover a seventeen-year-old girl's room last year, and I could've moved in!" Favourite place in the world? "Home." Thanks Sam!
