My Favorite Things

Need a florist? A framer? Chevron-wood floors? Here’s who some of the city’s top tastemakers call when they need something done.

Miho Kosuda bouquet.  

Roopal Patel, fashion director, Moda Operandi

Miho Kosuda never fails to deliver the most visually stunning bouquet for any occasion. You will never look at flowers the same way. 310 E. 44th St., nr. Second Ave., Ste. B; 212-922-9122.

I shop for lampshades the same way I shop for accessories: I can never have enough, and Just Shades has the biggest selection. 21 Spring St., nr. Elizabeth St.; 212-966-2757.

Everyone knows and loves John Derian for his découpage because he’s simply the best at it. But go there for great little sculptures, ornaments, and papier-mâché-animal trophies, too. They’ve got so much personality and charm. 6 E. 2nd St., nr. Bowery; 212-677-3917.

The walls in my apartment are painted in colors inspired by fashion. At Benjamin Moore, I was able to match my orange Hermès boxes, and I actually found a color chip called Dior Grey. 80 Fourth Ave., nr. 10th St.; 212-477-6930.

The most essential luxury may be Leontine Linens’s high-thread-count sheets, adorned with classic borders and monograms. They also make great tablecloths during dinner parties. Bergdorf Goodman, 754 Fifth Ave, nr. 58th St., seventh fl.; 212-753-7300.

My kitchen lighting—which infused serious personality into the room—is by Jonathan Adler. His pieces have such whimsy. 47 Greene St., nr. Grand St.; 212-941-8950.
