Phoebe Robinson is a comedian, New York Times best-selling author, co-star of the hugely popular podcast 2 Dope Queens, and much to our delight, she is obsessed with all-things HGTV. Phoebe defines her personal style as modern with a lot of visual interest. She shares with Marianne the celebrity-inspired aesthetic she aspires to and her go-to places to shop for furniture. Phoebe also talks about how she has made the many apartments she has occupied feel like home, even when she was renting. “The thing for me that helped me make it feel like it was my own space is that I'm very big into rugs. It feels good on your feet and it's a way to sort of like, break up the space in a way visually where it feels homey, and then bookcases,” says Phoebe.

Phoebe also talks about her new book and tells the story that led to its title — Please Don’t Sit on My Bed in Your Outside Clothes. Phoebe explains how when she was a kid, her parents were neat-freaks so when she came home from school, she had to take off her outside clothes and put them in the wash, and wear her inside clothes. Phoebe still maintains that rule in her life but admits even worse than outside clothes on the bed, is a dirty suitcase.
