Our homes are our sanctuaries, where we retreat to rest, recharge and (occasionally) binge watch a whole season of our favorite shows. Perfect Night In is a series where we ask actors, artists, entrepreneurs, and beyond how they’d spend the ultimate luxury—a blissful evening at home.
TV personality and new mom Whitney Port is nothing short of aspirational.
Since The Hills premiered 12 years ago, she has kept busy with a range of projects—from taking on a fixer upper and transforming it into her dream home, to teaching kids empathy through gardening with Mrs. Meyer’s Compassion Flower Project.
While staying proactive and productive is a great use of time and energy, it’s crucial to know when to slow down and put those feet up, literally and figuratively. So, we sat down with Whitney to find out how she does just that during her nights in at time home—and left no questions unasked.
