Q+ A With YOANNA KULAS
What does home mean to you?
My home is my sanctuary, the place where I am most comfortable and safe. I really am a homebody, love to spend time at home with my family, cooking and enjoying the time together.
What do you love most about your home?
I love that it is a one big open space, wonderfully designed to satisfy all our needs, with a beautiful flow from one area to the next.
What would you like to change?
Nothing really, I spent a lot of time at the construction site making sure everything was done as I wanted. I was involved in designing every room, every corner in this house.
Favorite flowers and plants?
White daisies, Lily of the Valley, White Peonies, fresh herbs, as for plants: Evergreens, Boxwood, Yew and Arborvitaes.
Favorite thing to do at home?
Cooking, another passion of mine, because I enjoy creating new recipes for my family. I also constantly move around my furniture. I also like to create a different look for different seasons. To relax, I love to take a bath and spend time in my beautiful Master Bathroom.
Favorite meal to cook and why?
I don’t have a specific dish that I prefer, I use the best ingredients possible and create my own recipes. Roasting fish, meats, making pasta, and creating delicious salads.
What’s on your playlist?
I don’t have a specific playlist but I enjoy listening to Buddha Lounge and Cafe del Mar.
When you have people over, how do you entertain them?
I always cook when I have people over!
How do you hope your guests feel when they visit your home?
Welcome, comfortable, natural, and happy.
What is your dream piece for the home?
Toogood Roly-Poly dining table and chairs in Cream.
How would your describe your style?
I am becoming more of a minimalist but I still want my space to feel warm and inviting. I love big, open spaces with a minimum amount of furniture, it is always about beautiful architecture for me.
What is important to you when you visit someone else’s home?
I like the owner to feel comfortable and appreciated for their style.
Favorite city to shop and why?
Los Angeles. I travel often to LA and love to stop by interior design stores, galleries and in general – just being inspired.
