The Milan Home of Brian Atwood

Feast your eyes on this spectacular designer home – a Milan sanctuary owned by shoe and accessory designer Brian Atwood, styled and decorated by the inspired Nate Berkus.

Personally my favourite space is the living/dining area. The mirrored wall gives an illusion of space while the wood floors and Martinique leaf wallpaper create warmth and intimacy.  I adore the linear vintage Arredoluce Triennale floor lamp, the sumptuous white lounge by Patricia Urquiola for B&B Italia and the sculptural vintage hand chair. As personal touch, Atwood has cleverly upholstered the vintage Milo Baughman armchair (sitting behind the striking brass & glass 1970-circa desk) in the same suede he uses for his footwear and accessories.

A limited palette of white, black and navy with splashes of green, teamed with accents of brass, chrome and leather, creates a controlled but harmonious space.  Stunning contemporary pieces combined cleverly with vintage finds create a unique and stylish interior brimming with character.
