If you’ve coveted a billowy nap dress in the past few years, or a pair of bloomers, you can thank Sandeep Salter. From Salter House, the “shop, design house, and cafe” with outposts in Brooklyn Heights (and, more recently, the East Village), Sandeep is quietly setting the tone for what’s-old-is-new fashion—and housewares, too. She designs pieces herself and curates a collection that makes brooms, brushes, and other utility look downright romantic.

“The daughter of a choreographer and a dancer, Sandeep grew up in London’s Primrose Hill before studying fine art at Parsons in New York,” Alexa wrote in our first story on Sandeep, way back in 2018, and we trust her eye on everything….including art. Next to the original Salter House location is Picture Room, where Sandeep curates works on paper, paintings, and photography; curates exhibitions; and serves as an art advisor for collectors. Today she’s sharing with us a film recommendation, the two pieces on heavy rotation in her closet, and a source for embroidered sheets. Read on:

What was your first design love?

Ikea catalogs.

You’re invited to dinner. What’s your go-to gift?

Always something I’ve recently made at Salter House: a new embroidered linen, a nightdress, a new basket! What I’m excited about that day. But for all occasions: this.

What do you listen to when you need inspiration?

Aerial East. The Smile’s new album. Or The Waves by Virginia Woolf.

Above left: The Beatrice blouse, inspired by Much Ado About Nothing and stitched in NYC. Above right: Plumetis linens from Cologne & Cotton.

Something you watched recently whose aesthetic has stuck with you?

The Sweet East.

What’s been your best house upgrade?

A vanity—a thoughtful gift from my husband. It’s a place just for me.

My favorite sheets are…

I love Cologne & Cotton. I used to wander around the shop after school for so many years, and I love their embroidered sheets.

My favorite paint color for the bedroom is…

Parma Gray.

This sieve.

What item from your closet do you have on repeat?

This blouse and skirt.

Your design M.O.?

Make it feel like home.
