10 Things: Louise Roe

The LA-based style star fills us in on the things she can’t live without.

British television presenter and journalist Louise Roe lives her life on fashion's front lines--whether she's hosting NBC's reality competition Fashion Star, manning the Oscars red carpet, or shooting her forthcoming Style Network series Style Pop, debuting this summer. But the LA-based sartorial virtuoso doesn't restrict her keen eye to the runway: "I'm so obsessed with interior design that I keep a scrapbook full of looks and items I want to find one day!" she says. We asked the closet home addict for the ten things she can't live without.

1. EMBROIDERED PUEBLA PILLOW COVER Cushions are the easiest way to revamp the living room--I love ikat and Navajo-inspired prints for the ranch feel they create. $30, West Elm 2. VINTAGE TOLEDO DINING CHAIR I've been looking for a seamstress stool similar to this chair for the last five years. Then one weekend recently, boom! I found them! It's less of a slick martini bar vibe and more of a cold-beer-in-your-cowboy-boots feel. Which I love. $249, Restoration Hardware

3. MAMOUNIA SKY RUG Martyn Lawrence Bullard is a dear friend and creates some beautiful homes. This patterned rug he designed is a gorgeous, calming color and I want it in my bedroom! $212 per square foot, The Rug Company 4. YEARLING HORN BOWLS Horn, reclaimed wood, coral, and sand shells are featured in my house a lot--I think natural textures help give a very rustic feel. $195 (set of 4), Plantation Design

 5. ECHINODERM HANGING CHART I was introduced to Necromance by a stylist friend of mine, and it's such a cool and eclectic store. You have to handpick your items carefully, but the pieces are unique and brilliant. $175, Necromance  6. NO. 7 PATCHOULI SANDALWOOD CANDLE Scent creates an atmosphere the minute you walk through a door, so I always have a candle burning in the evening or while I write. I switch it up depending on my mood: right now it's this gorgeous, strong, woody smell. From $4, Trapp Fragrances

 7. PINEAPPLE WALLPAPER I didn't use this pineapple print as wallpaper, but cut it up and framed it into four matching prints, which now hang above my desk. It's a trick my former magazine editor taught me--she did it with pictures from coffee table books as well. Price Upon Request, Studio Printworks 8. VINTAGE GLASS FRUIT I just brought back a grocery store's worth of glass fruit from my granny; she bought it all in Rio, Brazil, in the '60s. If you hunt around flea markets you can find it in LA too--I like the way it brightens the room. $9, Etsy

 9. MARKHBEIN KIBIC PITCHER  In the summer, I like to have pitchers of water with fresh cucumber or mint in them dotted around the house to make sure I drink enough! This one has a touch of '70s retro about it, an era I love for interior design. Everything was about entertaining and daytime cocktails--it was very elegant but boho at the same time. $136, American Rag  10. SLIM AARONS: LA DOLCE VITA Slim Aarons' photos are so aesthetically dreamy. The decadence and glamour of all the parties and people he photographed in the middle of the last century, all over the world--I can just stare at the images for hours! $54, Amazon
