We all have that one friend we go to for great recommendations. From the best-smelling candle to the next big furniture maker, they always know best. In 10 Things, we ask our favorite creatives to share the discoveries that make them happy so you can track down fantastic daily essentials, too.
Anine Bing’s path to fashion powerhouse started in her garage—in 2012, she launched her eponymous brand from the tiny Los Angeles space. Just seven years later, she’s the purveyor of stick-of-butter silk skirts and oversize blazers for the It crowd.
Her collections, which effortlessly blend her Danish roots with vintage Americana, are just as stylish as her house: a Spanish Revival tucked away in a leafy L.A. suburb. Inside, black-and-white photography, pink velvet sofas, and wrought-iron chandeliers are just the right amount of trendy with a rock-and-roll edge. Here, Bing shares 10 things that make her happy at home.
The Speedy Self-Care Routine
“These sheet masks are my 10 minutes of luxury and self-care. They always make me feel recharged and refreshed.”
The Visual Inspo
“I’m obsessed with beautiful coffee-table books, and this one of Terry O’Neill’s vintage photographs is one of my biggest sources of inspiration. I go back to it time and time again.”
The Everyday Accessory
“Gold jewelry always reminds me of my grandmother, and delicate pieces like these are so much fun to layer.”
The Morning Luxury
“Every time I visit Denmark, I bring back a piece of Royal Copenhagen china. Coffee just tastes better in these.”
The Healthy Habit
“Lekfit’s whole philosophy is about learning to celebrate your body. I always feel challenged there and have so much energy when I leave.”
The Investment Piece
“I love collecting rare finds. Chanel is the epitome of glamour and timeless design.”
The Familiar Fragrance
“One of these is always burning in my house, our office, and every store. This scent feels like home to me.”
The Decor Must-Have
“These rugs make every space cozy. I have one in almost every room of the house and at all of our stores. I love the texture and warmth they add.”
The Nighttime Ritual
“I love gold accents, especially from this Scandinavian interiors brand. These candlesticks are refined and look good in every space, no matter the design.”
The Wardrobe Staple
“A good blazer has always been part of my uniform. This one reminds me of a jacket my dad used to wear. It’s classic and chic and a team favorite.”
