There’s no doubt that Drake’s insane Toronto mansion stole the show in the May issue of Architectural summary. But that’s not the only home-run design in the issue: AD also visits designer couple Nate Berkus and Jeremiah Brent of TLC’s Nate and Jeremiah by design. The couple recently purchased a townhouse in New York’s West Village neighborhood, a major downsizing from their former Los Angeles home.

To make it up to you, Berkus and Brent had purchased a spacious 1920s Spanish Colonial home in Los Angeles in 2017. A massive oak tree in the front yard lured the couple to this grand and spacious abode. “We imagined Poppy, and eventually the rest of our family, playing under this tree, and we thought it was a place where we could put down roots,” Brent said. AD at the time. Fast forward almost three years later and the couple are back in New York with their children Poppy, 5, and Oskar, 2. “One thing I can promise you is that I will never again tell a publication that a house is my ‘forever home,'” Berkus jokes in the narrative. “We won’t repeat it again,” adds Brent.

Architectural Summary

The couple, whose romance began in New York, missed the energy and diversity of the Big Apple, they say. They estimated that Poppy spoke to the same 11 people every day in Los Angeles, and they wanted her to have a wider circle. However, for the move to work, the men really had to decide which of their possessions actually sparked joy. “Our old living room had 30 pieces of furniture,” says Berkus. “This one has six! But what you see is the best we have.

They settled into a 3,400 square foot townhouse built in 1899, which had recently been gutted. The stripped space was left “sterile”, as the couple describes it. “Our job was going to be to give it a soul,” says Brent. To add a touch of elegance to their space, they built a huge two-story bookcase that takes up an entire wall, a stylish yet space-saving way to display family memorabilia. Otherwise, how did they make this townhouse their own? You can attend Berkus and Brent’s home visit with AD under.
