A painting from Vietnam and her Samick baby grand piano

“This one is my favorite. I got that one in Saigon, Ho Chi Minh City,” she says. “I love the yellow in that painting. And I just love how the artist [made] the lady with no facial features, yet you can see her facial features in it. I also love the pop of red that it has.” Though Salters hasn’t taken lessons she was 17, she still plays to relax. “It's just something to sit there with a glass of wine and tinker. Sam likes to sit on my lap and bang on the keys, as well. I've always loved the piano, because — to me — it's the sexiest instrument that there is. It commands the room. At a symphony, it commands the stage.”
