FOR DATE NIGHT

“Our special place is either Ellerbe or Lilis—they are both amazing. The owner of Ellerbe is on the first episode tonight. I had never really known her before the show, but she applied and she’s an amazing chef, but she had this not chef-y kitchen. So we got to make it really amazing and fit them and their story. It was just a really special project.”

Lili’s Bistro // 1310 W. Magnolia Ave., Fort Worth; 817/877-0700; lilisbistro.com 

FOR SELF-CARE

“Honestly, I slept an hour last night. This is real life. During the season, my house is typically a wreck because I will pull things out of my house to style with a lot. And then it just doesn’t get put back in the right place because I don’t have time. There’s shelves empty. My dining room table has stuff all over it. I’m typically pretty organized, and especially now that my kids are older, I can afford a little more organization. So my biggest self-care thing would be a bath at the end of the day.”

FOR READING MATERIAL

“I love to read design books. I’m not trained as an interior designer; I really had to teach myself, and I did a lot of that through reading about other people’s philosophies and how they did things—and then from that, pulling different things from different people that I admired and then creating my own thing.”

FOR A FAMILY OUTING

“I love just getting to walk. We’re close to the trails over here and close to the river, so I just love getting to walk together.”

FOR INSPIRATION

“If I am feeling a little bit down, I can walk through Simple Things and feel better. It’s very beautifully curated and collected.”

FOR HAULING HER CREW

“I had a quadruple stroller; we call it Mitchell Stadium. It was amazing. It’s really how I left my house for three years. There were two kids on top that faced me and two kids on bottom.”
