On the Go with Danielle Rollins Where is your favorite place to eat dinner? Right now I am in a very small and limited rental home while my new house is being renovated. I cannot find my underwear let alone a cloth napkin, so it is all about the prospects of what will be. I can’t wait to have dinner outside with my mom, my children and Bill Ingram, my architect and partner, when this is all said and done! What is your favorite weekend getaway? At the moment…Chicago! It is a smaller, more beautiful and refined NYC, and the people are fabulous. If you don’t know Chicago you are missing out. What is your go-to hostess gift? I have the luxury of ribbon-wrapping a signed copy of my book. But I love to give cocktail napkins, vintage bar accessories and hard to find liquors with recipes. Do you have a style icon? Grace Kelly, Grace Kelly, Grace Kelly. Do you have a favorite blog or publication? I do! Danielle Rollins » Gracious Living & Stylish Entertaining! What is something that most people don’t know about you? I am actually quite shy. I think I love entertaining because it gives me the chance to orchestrate, direct, participate and observe. Or maybe I should have been a dictator? Same skills just better taste! What is your favorite lunch spot with friends? I love going to Anis Bistro. It is so quintessentially French to me. 60 PEACHYTHEMAGAZINE.COM
