I find myself in the heart of Manhattan, which I don’t know very well. Here, you must show the doorman your credentials to get in. I go up to the last storey of a building with an amazing view over the bay. Another way to see New York, I love it! Beautiful Ferebee is the co-founder of Feyt.com, a clever fashion website for New Yorkers searching for inspiration. She receives me with her three boys who each have big personalities. She is gentle, calm and elegant and has total control over the situation in her breathtaking décor…
Ferebee, which part of the house do you feel most confortable ?
I feel most comfortable in the Media Room with a fire in the fireplace. I love having the view of the water, and there is something very serene about that room.
What is the best moment of the day ?
I love the cuddling with my three boys at the end of the day, and talking about our days, and our plans for tomorrow.
When are you going when you are looking for furniture for your home ?
I like to find pieces of furniture when I am not specifically looking…when I am traveling or happen to stop into a furniture store. It’s very hard to find pieces when you are looking for them.

The artists I am most inspired by are Jean-Michel Basquiat, Cy Twombly, Richard Prince, Retna…oh, this list goes on and on…I have always been very inspired by art!
What brand name do you never go without ?
For clothing, I love Celine…it is so timeless and classic…never trendy.
You’re latestcrutch ?
My latest crush is Instagram…I have become addicted to checking out my friends’ photos and posting photos of my own!
Do you have a motto ?

Which designer’s piece of work would you love to own ?
I would love to own a piece of art by Jean-Michel Basquiat.
