Five years ago, I met an art historian Gisela Gueiros when he moved in with his family our old apartment. One of the first things I noticed about him – in addition to his Brazilian accent and laughter – is one of those with curiosity. everything. It always is recommend a movie or making fun games or putting ice in wine. So I asked Gisela to share 12 things that mean a lot to her …
Book 1: Walk By the hand of the Norwegian explorer Erling Kagge. I take long walks around Brooklyn, and he walks in the snow in the middle of nowhere, but walking is that wide thing that binds us together. Walking is not just walking.
2. Linen: Gingham bed Heather Taylor. The cotton is very soft and I mix yellow, red and blue in our bedroom.
3. Ritual: When I take my twin boys to school in the morning, I like them holding hands a lot, one on each side. I always think about how good I am at that moment.
4. Bag: By all the giants SZ Blockprints they are perfect for food, picnics, travel and handmade.
5. Artwork: at Henri Rousseau’s ‘The Dream’ (1910) MoMA. The painting is flat, but there is a lot to discover in that jungle. And the naked woman lying on the couch in the middle is surreal! I could live inside that box.
6. Treatments: These are the best cakes Brigadier Bakery Manhattan. I recommend the carrot cake made with Brazilian brigadeiro fudge balls.
7. Shoes: I love them Reebok whites and have been owned by many couples. They are very comfortable and go with all outfits.
8. Hotel: Missing Inverness, California, my husband, Tom, and I went on a honeymoon. I think marriage doesn’t change anything but everything is one of those weird things that changes. I was beyond excited about traveling with my new husband, and as a foreigner, it certainly seemed like a very serious and enduring commitment to be in the US with California was reassuring, as one of my favorite places in the world – Tom had been living there for 10 years, so playing “inside” she was and she was very sexy.
