BLOGGER STYLE One of my morning rituals is a spritz of perfume, whether I’m going out or staying in. Frederic Malle’s hair mist still has enough of the Carnal Flower scent, but it’s a little lighter. Carnal Flower Brume Pour Cheveux: $160; Frederic Malle BLOGGER STYLE I love to use velvets in decorating, even if it’s just a pillow. Clarence House has some beautiful velvets, including this one in rose. Castellamonte Velvet; Clarence House I gravitate to embroidery, and I love the Leaves of Grass brand.

Off-White Cadeau: $420; Acne Studios “Paper” and “pencil” were the first words I ever put together, and I still must always have them within reach.
