Welcome to 10 Things, in which we ask our favorite creatives and tastemakers to share what brings joy to their lives (because it might enhance yours, too).

Walk into an Anthropologie or Paper Source and you’ll find Anna Bond’s floral-filled illustrations front and center. Her company, cult stationery brand Rifle Paper Co., has become synonymous with gift giving at this point (its signature blossoming prints now span far beyond thank-you notes; roses cover recipe boxes and peonies encompass tumblers). The life-as-art mind-set that has informed Bond’s approach to business for the past 10 years also applies to her personal life. From entertaining must-haves to self-care saviors, the CCO and mom of three shares 10 things that bring her joy at home.

The Everyday Fragrance 

The Holy Mountain, Apoteker Tepe ($110)

I’m always nervous about buying scents online, but how could I resist this description? “The Holy Mountain is a smoky hearth strewn with incense, an enveloping layer of aged wood and resin melting over a core of dry heat.” It’s woodsy, spicy, smoky, and very unique—and it’s been my daily fragrance for the past year or so.


The Fall Footwear  

Olive Garden Party Scout Boot, Rifle Paper Co. x Keds ($90)

I’m very excited about our first-ever boot with Keds for fall. I’m looking forward to wearing them with jeans and my favorite oversize sweater.

The Conversation Starter 

Haviland Dinner Plate, Le Bresil ($134)

I don’t currently own a set of fine china, but I’ve had my eye on this pattern by Haviland for a few years. It would be perfect for outdoor dinner parties in Florida.

The Office Playlist 

When We Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?, Billie Eilish ($12)

Billie Eilish’s latest album, When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?, has been on repeat while I paint in my studio.

The Investment Piece

Di Orchis Minor Lamp, Kriest ($1,925)

I’m obsessed with these beautiful, unique lamps made out of wood by Kristin Victoria Barron. When designing our home, I decided to invest in two as works of art to be the focal point of our living room.


The Kitchen Staple

ZWILLING Madura Plus Nonstick Pan, Food52 ($40–$99)

I make eggs almost every morning, and I’m obsessed with using this nonstick pan. The eggs really do just slide out.

The Beauty Buy

Flyliner Longwear Liquid Eyeliner, Fenty Beauty ($20)

I wear this liquid eyeliner every day—and I can attest that it even stayed put during labor.

The Must-Have Centerpiece

White Earthenware Footed Cup Coiled Handles, Frances Palmer Pottery ($250)

I like to invest in beautiful vases and then fill them with simple grocery store flowers. It makes them look good. Frances Palmer makes some of my favorite pottery pieces; they’re unique and always have an element of the hand.

The Morning Routine 

Miele CM6350 Fully Automatic Espresso Machine, Williams-Sonoma ($2,300)

It’s definitely an investment, but this machine makes the best home coffee (and cappuccinos, espressos, and lattes) I’ve ever had. Plus, I can brew right into our Rifle Paper Co. x Corkcicle stemless insulated cupsand keep my coffee hot for hours while chasing around the kids in the morning.


The Unbeatable Sleep

Percale Sheet Set, Parachute Home ($129)

I recently got Parachute’s percale bedding as well as its duvet insert and my bed instantly transformed into a magical oasis. It feels like sleeping in a hotel bed every night.
