I wanted to be an independent woman, a woman who could pay for her bills, a woman who could run her own life - and I became that woman.
I travel light. I think the most important thing is to be in a good mood and enjoy life, wherever you are.
When you get into a hotel room, you lock the door, and you know there is a secrecy, there is a luxury, there is fantasy. There is comfort. There is reassurance.
Animals come from nature. They were not designed. All my inspiration comes from nature, whether it's an animal or the layout of bark or of a leaf. Sometimes my patterns are very bold, and you can barely see where they come from, but all the textures and all the prints come out of nature.
There's design, and there's art. Good design is total harmony. There's no better designer than nature - if you look at a branch or a leaf, it's perfect. It's all function. Art is different. It's about emotion. It's about suffering and beauty - but mostly suffering!
Attitude is everything.
Clarity is the most important thing. I can compare clarity to pruning in gardening. You know, you need to be clear. If you are not clear, nothing is going to happen. You have to be clear. Then you have to be confident about your vision. And after that, you just have to put a lot of work in.
What's important to me is to share, and being inspired, and inspiring.
The older I get, the more impressed I am with women. I have yet to meet a woman who is not strong. They don't exist.
The iPad! What is better designed than that? I read magazines on it, I play Scrabble. I use it for everything.
I don't like to talk about my dreams. I like to make them happen. I prefer to talk about them when they're done.
Go to a place where you're not going to be stressed, because a honeymoon itself can be a stressful thing.
Insecurity is a waste of time.
I'm not the only one; most people's mothers are the most influential person in their life. But my mother survived the camps, and she was very strong. She made me strong, but she wanted me to be strong. That's more important.
Just don't go to a place where everything is too expensive... it'll put your husband in a bad mood.
