We got an exclusive look inside the impeccable Boerum Hill brownstone she just renovated, weaving in U.K. flair with clean and laid-back (read: sophisticated-yet-child-friendly) pieces. The overall effect is a jaw-dropping abode that's somehow not over the top. At all. Oh, and while we were there, we asked Sullivan to model her equally chilled-out chic wardrobe pieces and share her tips for decor on a dime, raising kids in the city, and other ma-jor mum conundrums. Sure, staying on top of design work, a store, a beautiful home, a big-time art-director hubbie, and two energetic kids might sound like a lot, but that's why we call Victoria Supermom.
You're a Brit, do you see any similarities between London and Brooklyn? Which do you prefer?
"When we moved to America, we definitely didn't want to live in the Ďburbs. And we didnít want a high-rise in Manhattan either. Boerum Hill in Brooklyn is about as close as you can get to how we lived in London with a bit of space and a back garden. We really love the ease of living in a small community like a village. We can walk and cycle everywhere, to school, to do the groceries, and always bump into someone we know. Here the weather is great, too. When it's hot, it's boiling and when it's cold, it's freezing; You get guaranteed seasons. Obviously, we miss our family and friends in England but many come over for a visit."

What is your favorite thing to wear currently?
"Well, all winter I was living in a fur gilet. I cut the sleeves off an old coat Ė it kept me cozy on the bike. Iím really getting into prints and lighter colors, and not just so much black. I like to mix funky printed trousers with a plain top and layers, jackets, scarves and always a hat. Now Iíll probably keep the prints going through the summer, but loving all blush (pink) greys, and creams."
