Victoria Crawford of Tweed Interiors in Telluride shares her beloved picks, from servingware to skin care. Take a look at her selections, in her own words:

SERVINGWARE:
Nathalie Lété plates from Anthropologie ($24/dinner plate, anthropologie.com). I like these French-inspired, whimsical, and colorful plates featuring mostly animals and flowers.

FRAGRANCE:
Tokyo Milk’s Dead Sexy No. 6 Parfum ($30, tokyo-milk.com). Need I say more?

BLANKET/THROW:
The Reversible Pompom Throw by Alicia Adams Alpaca ($895, aliciaadamsalpaca.com). They are beautiful, two-tone blankets made of 100-percent baby alpaca in a variety of colors. They add an instant hip factor to any space.

FLATWARE:
My grandmother’s silver for both everyday or special occasion. Old silver is so substantial, and I love the history.

FAVORITE COLORADO ARTIST:
Maryanne Quinn from Boulder. She makes amazing hand-felted pieces. I especially love her deer silhouettes and ski-patrol crosses. Her color combinations are spot-on, and she is always willing to commission pieces. maryannequinn.com

HOUSEWARMING GIFT:
The Grapefruit Pop Candle by Jonathan Adler ($38, jonathanadler.com). It makes any home smell divine.

SKIN CARE:
Because I live at 9,000 feet, I use Rhonda Allison’s Drop of Essence Hydration Drops ($48/1.7 ounces, spa-santa-cruz.com). I really need the moisture.

DESIGN TREND:
I’m really into arrows right now, from vintage arrows as décor on a vase to the Tapestry arrow wallpaper from Cavern Home (cavernhome.com). It feels modern yet antique.

BAG/PURSE:
I am a little obsessed with Clare V. right now. Her leather is so soft, and the styles are classic yet cutting-edge. I like the Oversize Stripe Zip Leather Clutch ($339, nordstrom.com) in camel with a blue, white, and red stripe.

SHEETS:
John Robshaw Mountain Stitch Sheet ($98-$128, anthropologie.com). They really do last forever. johnrobshaw.com

CLOTHING DESIGNER:
Haute Hippie. Their clothes are formal yet casual. hautehippie.com, neimanmarcus.com
