Can’t Hire an Interior Designer? Snag That Same High-Style Look with Home Collections Straight From Designers
Since we don’t all have the budgets of a Beckham, hiring an interior design pro to give our homes that put-together, magazine spread-worthy style is sometimes out of reach. And try as we might, going it alone often gives us mixed results. (Lime green and orange stripes seemed like a good idea for that wall behind the sofa.)
Lucky for us, some of our most favorite interior designers — designers we’d hire in a heartbeat should we stumble upon a small fortune — have created their own lines of home goodies that reflect their individual design ethos. Even better, some of the collections contain products that have been used in actual client projects. Here’s a look at the designer collections we covet:
Nate Berkus Can’t seem to nail down celeb interior designer Nate Berkus for a consultation? (We can’t either.) Don’t fret: Mr. Berkus brings his cool and collected style to Target with his very affordable line of bath, bedding, rugs, frames, and fun knick-knacks (the brass urchin is on our lists) for the home.
Kelly Wearstler Hiring Kelly Wearstler to splash our pads with her divine and daring aesthetic is dreaming the impossible dream. So in lieu of a total KW home makeover, we’re partial to her just-as-amazing home line, including furniture, rugs, fabrics, and objects d’art.
