Celebrity Homes: Peek Inside ID Jeremiah Brent Manhattan Apartment – The celebrity designer used color and texture to lend warmth and intimacy to a cookie-cutter home in the West Village.
“We wanted the space to feel moody but, as you move through it, not feel dark; we wanted it to still be airy,” says Jeremiah Brent of a 2,500-square-foot New York apartment he recently designed. A table by Andrianna Shamaris anchors the dining nook off the kitchen, where vintage 1950s school chairs sit across from a banquette topped with cushions upholstered in a Pierre Frey fabric.
A mirrored backsplash adds contemporary flair to the built-in bookshelves Brent installed along the wall opposite the dining nook.
In the living room, the custom sofa is upholstered in an indigo Schumacher fabric that coordinates with the walls and drapery, which is a gauzy Nate Berkus for Fabricut textile. A pair of vintage Joseph-André Motte chairs are reupholstered in a burnt-orange velvet from Lee Jofa. The custom console conceals a flat-screen television that rises up from a flap in the piece’s uppermost surface. The guest room is dominated by a Room & Board bed dressed in cozy linens; the chair is from Galerie Bachman, and the nightstands are by Interlude Home.
To reference the wall of windows in the living room, Brent installed iron-and-glass doors off the kitchen to create an intimate entry. “It’s a really nice space that grounds you when you walk in the door,” he says. Moody black walls add to the enveloping effect.
