I recently finished up a charity design project for a wonderful organization called Housing Works that supports the HIV/AIDS community in New York. You’ve probably heard me talk about their Annual fundraiser called Design on a Dime here on the blog before. It’s a charity shopping event where interior designers create beautiful rooms and everything is sold to benefit Housing Works.

In the latest issue of Instyle, the fashion entrepreneur and author takes us inside her Beverly Hills home and it’s just as fabulous as you’d expect.
