See 4 Stunning Homes by AD100 Designer Jeremiah Brent

A Chic Manhattan Abode

“Though it hadn’t been touched much for two generations, it held a lot of emotion.” So says interior designer Jeremiah Brent, about an apartment in Manhattan that had been a Latin American family’s anchor for decades—home to its beloved matriarch; the site of memorable gatherings, convivial dinners, and celebrations of all kinds. Everybody knew that the Park Avenue property had to be renovated when it recently passed into another generation’s hands, but, the New York–based talent adds, the commission would prove a challenge for everyone involved, personally as well as professionally. “It couldn’t lose any of its spirit, but we had to bring in light and more contemporary elements,” he explains. “The approach had to honor the client’s mother, who had lived there for so long, while bringing it into the present, while also leaving room for the future. It had to be a fresh start but a sensitive one.”Mitchell Owens

One Breezy L.A. Pad

“Brian and Tracy’s last house was a Tudor without a lot of sunlight, so the question was ‘How do you bring a bright, contemporary spirit to a house with traditional bones?’ Here, the challenge was flipped—we wanted to bring a sense of warmth and coziness to a pristine contemporary house,” Brent explains. Berkus, predictably, has his own take: “They didn’t want to go full Neutra,” he quips. “They didn’t want a room with three pieces of perfect modern furniture.” Instead, the designers orchestrated an unpretentious, decades-spanning symphony of chic, eminently comfortable furnishings, many reused from the homeowners’ previous residence.Mayer Rus

The All-White D.C. Home of One Former NHL Player

Soaring ceilings, large windows, and impressive skylights all help bring an abundance of natural light into [this] home, which Brent says played a critical role in the opening up of the formerly dark space. . . . “We took a lot of inspiration from Europe,” says Brent, whose love of artistry and interiors was first cultivated with furniture design. “Everything was meant to be integrated and clean, so we steered clear of any trends.” One of the biggest transformations—and challenges—involved the home’s staircase, which was flipped from one side of the property to the other. “Moving the staircase isn’t necessarily an easy feat,” Brent says. “But it really gave us the versatility to do so much more with the interior aesthetic and utilize more of the home.”Troy J.
