Produced by Clara Haneberg

Hometown(s) Swansea, Wales, and New York

Home is where the collection is My home was built in 1890. The kitchen has dark wood enhanced by black-and-white tiles. I adore antiques and have a huge vintage collection. There are a lot of white ceramic pieces and my silver collection, which I use every day.

Fresh catch I love to cook a beautiful piece of fish—whatever is fresh—and make a huge salad with lots of colorful vegetables.

Sunday ritual A big brunch and lots of newspapers.

Port of call Europe with my family. My way of relaxing and unwinding is preferably on a boat.

Pass it down Tradition entails meaningful stories.

Home away from home My dear friend’s house in Paris is beautiful and welcoming.

Heartfelt I saw a young man offer to help an elderly man get his groceries in his car. I am always heartened by simple acts of human kindness I see.

Dog person They give unconditional love and never answer back.

You'd never guess In my home you'd be surprised to find a bunch of teenagers rehearsing for their garage band.

LOL-worthy I laughed uncontrollably watching This Is Spinal Tap for the 100th time. It never gets old!

#SeeHer Now more than ever, equality for women is being implemented, and it’s women who are leading that charge.

I am traditional I love history, embrace my family heritage, enjoy knitting and sewing, am surprisingly good at tap dancing, prefer chocolate over cheese, am dying to learn to ice-skate, and the gift I treasure most is my children.
