1. COLOGNE I tend to be allergic to synthetic scents, but Jo Malone colognes are so natural, they work. I love the wide variety of scents, too. Wood Sage & Sea Salt Cologne, $140; neimanmarcus.com, jomalone.com

2. HOUSEWARMING GIFT Aquiesse candles in Luxe Linen or Sandalwood Vanille instantly make a home feel even more homey. I love them so much that I started carrying them in my store. $42; aquiesse.com

3. BEDDING My sheets are from Hotel Collection, and my bedding often comes from West Elm or CB2. There is nothing better than getting into a bed with that luxurious-hotel feel. Hotel Collection 680 Thread Count King Flat Sheet in Supima Cotton, $235; macys.com

8. COLORADO ARTIST Contemporary artist Ian Fisher specializes in large oil-on-canvas cloud paintings. I love feeling the emotion I get from them. His art is truly like taking a walk through the clouds. ianfisherart.com

9. RESTAURANT I love how the menu at Potager changes seasonally. They were one of the first in Denver to incorporate the farm-to-table movement. I like the ambience, and its clean look reminds me of being back in New York. 1109 Ogden Street, Denver, potagerrestaurant.com
