Having two renowned interior designers as parents makes for one amazing nursery.
At least that’s what young Poppy can say (when she learns how to speak, of course). The adorable baby girl’s parents, Nate Berkus and Jeremiah Brent, created a haven for her when they renovated their new home, a three-bedroom in a prewar building in New York City’s Greenwich Village.
In a feature for Architectural Digest’s October issue, the couple shows off their new family home. “The energy we discovered working on our home together is unlike anything else,” Brent told the magazine. “It’s totally unfiltered. We do our best work when we are together.”
And it’s pretty obvious that’s a true statement when you peek inside their space. The center, or heart, of the home is their daughter’s playroom. Most notably, it features a handwoven photo work by Fernando Bengoechea, Berkus’s former partner who died in the 2004 tsunami that struck Thailand.
“Everyone should be able to sit in a room with pieces that spark memories,” said Berkus. “If you create the feeling that a home is a vessel for stories and memories, you have succeeded.”
The rest of the home is just as remarkable. The kitchen is outfitted with a clean subway tile backsplash and butcher-block countertops. The family room features a wall of book shelves filled with rich-looking texts. And the master bath includes custom-made antique mirrors and midcentury French sconces.
