Not long ago, Architectural Digest made a selection of the best interior designers, with the opportunity to get to know their very private living rooms!
This idea happened probably because sometimes, a designer can also be their own client. And most of the times a tough one! That’s because the house of a designer is literally the place where they can go all out in terms of creativity, while always adding a little bit of personality, glamour, and… a lot of talent. To sum it up: this is a place where they are free to work!
So, to inspire you with what’s probably the most honest and creative work of the best interior designers, here you have their amazing living rooms. Ready? Let’s check them out!
Twin French Art Deco zebrawood side tables are joined by Art Deco armchairs covered in a Rogers & Goffigon fabric in the East Hampton residence of David Kleinberg.
Andrew Fisher and Jeffry Weisman
In the living room at the Mexico retreat of Andrew Fisher and Jeffry Weisman, pine beams highlight the ceiling, and the French doors feature curtains of a Duralee velvet trimmed with an ikat by Kravet.
What we can see in Timothy’s Paris apartment is actually a window aligned with two mirrors, one in the living room and one in the dining room beyond. Corrigan highlighted the ingenious hall-of-mirrors illusion by installing matching Napoléon III chandeliers in the two rooms. The armchairs, the curtain, and the sofa fabrics are all from Schumacher’s Timothy Corrigan Collection; the stools are vintage Jansen, and the carpet is a Corrigan design for Patterson Flynn Martin.
Nate Berkus and Jeremiah Brent
In the Manhattan home of the two designers, this living room’s 1960s American club chairs are upholstered in an Edelman suede. The mirror and woven chair are mid-century French, the marble mantel and pair of lamps are from the 19th century, and the kilim is from ABC Carpet & Home. Stunning!
White oak paneling lines the New York City living room of architect Steven Harris and designer Lucien Rees-Roberts.
An artwork by Terry Winters overlooks the Nashville, Tennessee, living room of interior designer Ray Booth and television executive John Shea.
A painting by Andro Wekua hangs between the windows in the open floor plan living area at Sara Story’s family compound in Texas.
Vicente Wolf and Matthew
At the Long Island home of the designers, these living room lines and colors create a perfect and peaceful place.
The heart of designer Allegra Hicks’ apartment in Naples, Italy, is a long, high-ceilinged room divided into two living and dining areas. The designer also created the Roman-shade fabric, the cut velvet on the wood-framed Jindrich Halabala armchairs, and the butterfly specimen table at right; an 18th-century Venetian mirror surmounts the mantel.
The slipper chairs in Celerie Kemble’s Dominican Republic retreat living room are from the designer’s line for Henredon.
