“Jo Malone London Orange Blossom is an elegant scent that makes me feel nostalgic for Palm Beach. I wear it as a perfume and have candles scattered throughout my house. It might seem like overkill, but when I was a child, I could smell it in my hair sometimes just from a walk up the pathway to my front door.” Orange Blossom cologne, 3.4 fl. oz. for $135, at jomalone.com

“Wicker stripe wallpaper from my collection with Schumacher is my absolute favorite wallpaper. It feels modern but also sentimentally whimsical. There is no time that I look at it and don’t feel happy.” Wicker stripe wallpaper in Frangipani, to the trade, 222 W. Merchandise Mart Plaza, Ste. 6133

“The thorn lantern or soft wicker square pendant are two very different lights but both count as favorites!” Vero pendant, $1,230, by Celerie Kemble for Arteriors at arteriorshome.com

“If someone were to deny me access to all beauty products in perpetuity except for one of my choosing, I would be most anxious to secure rights to a closet full of my Le Métier de Beauté Peau Vierge anti-aging complexe SPF 18. It is a nourishment, glow and protection in one tube.” Peau Vierge anti-aging complexe SPF 18, $125, by Le Métier de Beauté at Neiman Marcus, 737 N. Michigan Ave.

“Lela Rose is my go-to for dresses that take me from a client meeting to a dinner party. She has finally launched Pearl, a more casual and affordable line.” White lace dress, $395, and white lace jacket, $650, both by Pearl by Lela Rose at pearl.nyc

“My collection was inspired heavily by a desire to see softer materials, juxtapositions and mixes of these materials—like leather, milk glass, wood and églomisé—with the harder edges often shown in lighting,” says interior designer Celerie Kemble of her recently debuted Celerie Kemble for Arteriors collection ($375 to $3,900). “There are a lot of soft and sinuous forms, vines and garden elements,” adds Kemble, who joins the ranks of previous Arteriors collaborators such as Barry Dixon, Windsor Smith and Jay Jeffers. Spiky thorns adorn verdigris-and-glass lanterns, and perforated shades of a sconce cast a star-dappled sky. “I think as much about the shadows my lights cast as I do the glow one would normally expect—so look for lots of perforated shades and forms that shadow deliciously,” the designer says. Here, Kemble illuminates her interior inspirations.
