What makes the perfect registry? Our Dream Registry series answers just that, providing an endless source of inspiration for those putting together their own Over The Moon registries. We enlisted the help of some of our most stylish and in-the-know friends—whether they’re single, engaged, or already married. (Because we’re taking a page from Carrie Bradshaw’s playbook and saying one should be able to register for Manolos no matter what their relationship status!) Peek inside the registries of tastemakers, from editors and stylists to wedding planners and beyond. Your dream registry is just a click away.
Asking Over The Moon stylist Anny Choi to create her own Dream Registry was a no-brainer. Anny’s styling aesthetic is obviously very in line with Over The Moon, but her personal decor aesthetic is still in the works. “I’ve recently moved out of the New York City apartment that I had lived in for almost eight years,” she explains. “Now that I’m in a more grown up space, I can’t decide which direction to take it. A part of me still loves a super feminine, English countryside look with mix-and-match lampshades and grandma-chic wallpapers, but then there’s another part of me that wants to keep it super clean and minimal. I’ve been drawn to some mid-century furniture. My process is saving everything I like on Instagram and creating different mood boards to figure out how I can recreate some of the spaces on a budget.”
Speaking of that English countryside vibe, Anny moved across the pond to a flat in Notting Hill early last year (pre-pandemic). And aside from drawing inspiration from designers like Robert Kime and Remy Renzullo, she loves looking at movies for ideas. “There’s this Instagram account that I’ve been following called @interiorandfilms, and it’s SO good!” she exclaims. “I mean, the house from Call Me By Your Name, interiors from The Handmaiden, and Christian Bale’s apartment in American Psycho are actually quite chic…”
Anny, like a lot of us, took up cooking during quarantine and is “obsessed with having the best kitchenware—knives especially.” She adds, “Now that I have a dining table big enough to throw dinner parties, I’m always looking for fun napkins and plates to add to the collection.” The Sabre bamboo cutlery set will especially pair well with playful linens and new recipes.
When perusing Over The Moon for her Dream Registry, Anny knew she had to have items from Match, especially the bar tray and knife set—she’d never found a fancy charcuterie board she fancied until this one! Other must-have items are her favorite sheets from Hill House Home and the Jean Dubost Laguiole knife set. We can’t wait to see how her London flat together!
