Model Unit: See Inside Karlie Kloss’s NYC Townhouse

When it comes to the places models call home, visions of cramped, dingy Manhattan apartments often come to mind. But for 21-year-old supermodel Karlie Kloss, those days are long gone. The St. Louis–born stunner recently welcomed The Coveteur and Vogue inside her Nate Berkus–designed West Village townhouse, and well, it is just as chic as you’d expect the home of the world’s top model to be.

Berkus told Vogue he wanted to design a space that reflected Kloss’s personal style, as well as her age. The resulting aesthetic includes a mix of high- and low-end products, much like Kloss’s own wardrobe. Among my favorite features are the entryway’s basketweave-patterned marble floor, playful wallpaper, and lots of gold-accented, glass-topped furniture. One of the more unexpected features of Kloss’s hideaway? A “football-watching room” where the catwalk queen logs hours watching the Rams play – a nod to the city she first called home.

Hollywood Haven: Tour Nate Berkus’s California Home

Star interior designers spend most of their time catering to clients’ tastes, which means it’s always a treat to see what happens when they work on a dwelling for themselves, no holds barred. So, when Nate Berkus opened his California home to EyeSwoon founder Athena Calderone for a photo op, I couldn’t take a look fast enough.

The decorator, TV personality, and author shares the 1930s bungalow with his new husband, interior designer Jeremiah Brent. And just as you might imagine a home occupied – and outfitted – by two massively talented designers to be, it’s a study in seriously cool style. The couple chose a muted palette to let their favorite decorative objects and personal touches stand out, but color isn’t entirely absent from their abode. A retro-style range in seafoam green sits front and center in the kitchen, where the floor is covered in black, white, and green tile. Throughout the space, leather, marble, wood, and metals mix together to create a combination of textures that’s downright dreamy. Happily for the duo, it’s one dream from which they never have to wake up.
