Handsome couple Nate Berkus and Jeremiah Brent had what they thought was their forever home in L.A. but they missed the NYC energy. They decided to purchase a 3,400 SQ, FT; 1899 townhouse in the West Village. They are the masters at making spaces feel homier by adding texture and details. They gutted the town home aside from the MEP (mechanical, electrical, plumbing), added an 18th-century Italian mantel, wallpaper, vintage light fixtures + mohair rugs. Check out how beautiful their NYC family home is.
These days the world cannot wait to be social and out once more. Its so odd to miss the simplest things like taking the metro to a baseball game, going to the beach to do absolutely nothing, going out for long walks taking photographs, being annoyed of people whilst out in a bar/club or just hanging with friends at the cafe down the street. These all feel like things of the past. How are we going to normalize once this is over? I have to say I value and appreciate my relationships with those close to me so much more. Hope all of you are doing well.

Renzo Piano is the famed Italian Architect enlisted to design the 300,000 Sq Ft Academy Museum on Whilshire Blvd in California.The building will host a collection of film memorabilia including set designs, costumes, props and interactive installations. Over 140,000 films, 10 million photos, 42,000 original film posters and 10,000 production drawings.
The original building was constructed in 1938 and has been vacant for the last 20 years. Once again the building will be part of the evolving urban LA scene.
Renzo Piano’s workshop has worked on the designs for the museum’s two buildings since 2012 and should be completed in 2019.
A new spherical addition will accommodate a 1,000-seat theater and a dome-covered terrace with views of the Hollywood Hills. Across the campus, long-term exhibitions presenting the history of movie-making will be accompanied by a program of temporary installations dedicated to specific movies, genres or directors. As well as the large theater in the sphere – designed for events, premiers and presentation – a smaller 288-seat auditorium will host screenings. Restaurants, shops and education spaces will also feature.
“The millions of people around the world who make and love movies will be able to come to the epicenter of film-making and experience the magic of this art form,” said Academy CEO Dawn Hudson.”They’ll see firsthand the vast collections of the academy and the work of our members. And, they’ll be able to do that all year – not just on Oscar night.”
