The new Anthropologie spring catalog just arrived and I'm so happy to see some of my work included. It was a dream to work with Lilian Hough, an incredibly talented art director and friend, and two of my favorite photographers, David Meredith and Mikkel Vang. There are some jobs that leave you feeling inspired and fulfilled and this was definitely one of them. Between the production, Anthro team, and locations in the Hamptons and rural Pennsylvania, not to mention the gorgeous merch, this was a fantastic project. I have a little feature within, talking a bit about decorating and entryways. There's also a beautiful feature on Athena Calderone, a supremely talented interior designer and food-lover. I'm feeling grateful for this opportunity and also for a career that I love.
New York City–based Kendra Smoot has an impressive roster of clients ranging from Kate Spade to Williams-Sonoma and Real Simple. She lives a perfectly curated life with her three beautiful children, and can give any cake what Donna Hay once calls the “lickable factor.”
Kendra Smoot may have the best hair of any mom we know. The prop stylist (who collaborated with her photographer husband, Seth, on this autumn picnic story for Lonny) makes her new surroundings in Northern California look even more magical.

Having recently relocated from NYC to the Bay Area, the brunette beauty and her family (her husband is photographer Seth Smoot) now live in a minimilat abode that they are currently renovating. Set amongst awe-inspiring views and towering trees- including one that grows right through their back deck. Here, we get a taste of Smoot's sweet life.
