Two (Vastly Different) Celebrity Homes You Need to See

Architectural Digest shared the homes of two high profile couples this month, and while each are amazing in their own right, they couldn’t be more different. And that’s what I love about interior design- the way it can tell you so much about the lives and personalities of those who live in these spaces.

First up, the amazing New York City abode of Nate Berkus and Jeremiah Brent and their daughter Poppy.  Let’s start with this INSANE kitchen. The brass island, the glossy black cabinets, the floors,  the unbelievable windows???

This is just so amazing- the architecture is so unique.  Moe proof that older home ROCK.

So flipping cute.

The dining room- not a huge fan of the wall art or light, but the overall feel is great. And again with those dreamy floors.

From this angle everything changes due to those gasp-worthy french doors and fireplace!

The living room- another example of monochromatic, neutral design made interesting by mixing up textures and materials.

I would have loved and black and white marble floor in here with all that amazing moulding and trim.

A cozy den chock full of books. A tad confused by the awkward rug situation, but again, this house is just incredible for a city home!

Amazing bathroom- just amazing. Brass 4 eva.

But this shower might give me a stroke.  Too busy for me, dizzying really, large white subway with black grout would have been my choice.

The master bedroom….and wait for it….

item16.rendition.slideshowHorizontal.jeremiah-brent-nate-berkus-designed-greenwich-village-home-16

The master closet. WHAAAAAAAAATTTTT?!?!?!

Poppy’s nursery is DARLING.

item12.rendition.slideshowVertical.jeremiah-brent-nate-berkus-designed-greenwich-village-home-12

With a play room off it- look at those interior windows! SO COOL.

item13.rendition.slideshowVertical.jeremiah-brent-nate-berkus-designed-greenwich-village-home-13

The second home is that of TOMS Shoes founder Blake Mycoskie and his wife Heather and their new baby boy Summit in Topanga Canyon, California. Oh, and their two adorable pups!

The beams and windows in this living room made me gasp.

The house and it’s tiered gardens.

item2.rendition.slideshowHorizontal.blake-mycoskie-toms-los-angeles-home-03

A great entry complete with a gorgeous antique Louis Vuitton steamer trunk.  And some of the wood comes from the Coney Island boardwalk!

In the kitchen there is a mix of reclaimed wood and beams and a gorgeous La Canche stove with copper hood.

Blake’s office has a desk from Bali as the centerpiece.
