Andrew Joseph: If you could be any animal in the world, what animal would you be and why?
Sasha Bikoff: If I could be an animal I would be a dolphin, they are my spirit animal. A part from the fact that I love the ocean and am fascinated with the underwater world. dolphins are friendly, caring, and intelligent creatures. They are the smartest mammals after humans and they are very playful and social. All qualities I see in myself!

Andrew: If you had a superpower, what would it be?
Sasha: If I had a superpower it would be teleport. I would teleport back in time to 18th century France, Paris during the gilded age, the 60’s in London, the disco era in New York City, ancient Egypt where I may play the role of a high priestess, who knows! I just love the idea of being able to snap my fingers and teleport to anywhere my heart desires.

This elaborate interior was designed for the Kips Bay Decorator Show House. Leaving everyone in awe, this interior made its way to the cover of Claire Bingham’s book, More is More.

Andrew: If you could live in any home in a movie or television series, what would it be?
Sasha: If I could live in a home in any movie it would be The Great Gatsby, Sofia Coppola’s Marie Antoinette, and Clueless.

Andrew: If you could guest star on any TV show – on or off-air – what show would you guest star in?
Sasha: If I were to guest star on a show it would be The Crown, because I have an amazing British accent that I enjoy using.

Because we all need a purple-themed room, Sasha made sure to include one in this home for the Grand State Revival. Each room of this home contains a rich and bold color choice that truly leaves you breathless.

Andrew: Who is your dream date (alive or dead) and what would you do?
Sasha: My dream date would be with Ocean Eleven, Brad Pitt. We would fly on a private jet and stay at his dear friend George Clooney’s home in Lake Como for 5 days. Then we would head to Milano to shop before heading back to the home.
