10 Celebrity Interior Designers Trending Right Now
When you own multiple homes in the most expensive cities in the world, you turn to the best for decorating advice. These interior designers have lent their expertise to some of the world’s most famous faces. From Jennifer Aniston to Cameron Diaz to TV’s favorite mom, Mandy Moore, discover the talented designers who have helped stars turn their houses into glamorous homes.
Joan and her team have brought their design talent into the homes of some of the world’s wealthiest, including the Saudi Royal Family and Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen.
When describing Joan, many of her clients praised the same things: her discretion and her listening skills. Her clients also accompany her on shopping trips around the world so she can make sure their homes perfectly suit their individual style.
Unlike other designers, Joan doesn’t have a signature look. While all the homes she works on are luxurious and glamorous, she really lets her clients dictate the home’s design direction.
Arguably one of the most famous designers in Hollywood, Martin is behind the homes of Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian, Kendall Jenner, Ellen Pompeo and Eva Mendes. He also starred in the Bravo series, Million Dollar Decorators and hosted Channel 4’s Hollywood Me in the UK.
Martin has described his interior design style as “eclectic and sophisticated,” and has written two books giving fans a glimpse into his thought process, titled Live, Love, & Decorate and Design & Decoration.
Martin has mastered a multitude of interior design styles, attracting celebrity clients from all over the world. However, his talent extends beyond the homes of the rich and famous — he’s also put his spin on high-end hotels like the Colony Palms Hotel in Palm Springs and the Four Seasons Residences in Los Angeles.
This mother-and-son team is one of the hottest decorating duos in Hollywood. They’ve lent their discerning design eye to the interiors for Ellen Degeneres and Portia de Rossi’s home, and Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux’s.
While the duo solely worked together for years, they now take on separate clients who are looking for something tailored to their individual tastes.
Working on sprawling outdoor estates across California, the pair have developed a knack for creating luxurious outdoor spaces for entertaining.
You may know Peter for his world-famous wallpaper and textile collection, but he’s also an interior designer to the stars. He revamped Minnie Driver’s Hollywood Hills home and has worked with Jennifer Garner and Jessica Biel.
Peter’s designs often feature bold prints — sometimes from his own collection of textiles, which he says were inspired by his “travels through India, Turkey and the Mediterranean.”
Just like his textiles, Peter’s style has been influenced by his international childhood (he was raised in France but went to school in England) and embraces “color and pattern, mixing bespoke furnishings, vintage finds and modern luxuries.”
This L.A.-based designer’s client list reads like an A-list movie marquee. Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux, Ellen Degeneres and Portia De Rossi, Michelle Williams and Kirsten Dunst are just a few of the recognizable names that Jane has worked with.
Like her long list of diverse clients, her taste spans a vast array of styles. She often works with antique furniture and accessories alongside “cutting edge contemporary pieces.”
While her clients have glamorous spaces and incredibly large budgets, Jane still finds livability and function important. She says this particular space offers its owners and visitors “an invitation to relax.”
These designers came together in 1989 to form their eponymous design firm. Since then, they’ve worked with Tom Ford, Anthony Kiedis and Ashton Kutcher.
Their designs are often praised for bringing form and function together, seamlessly integrating luxury elements into rooms that will work with residents’ busy lifestyles.
In addition to their ability to blend different styles, Leo and Ron have become known for their contemporary take on kitchens, bathrooms and outdoor spaces.
When Mandy Moore needed to revamp her home from top to bottom, she called Sarah. The L.A.-based designer and blogger has become known for “effortlessly combining styles to create distinctive spaces, coveted products, and drool-worthy images.”
Though she does work with colors besides millennial pink, Sarah’s aesthetic is definitely cohesive. Some describe it as “laid-back California style,” while others have called it “bohemian chic.”
In addition to her signature style and celebrity clients, the designer has also become known for her bold wallpaper prints. (She has her own collection with Lulu & Georgia.)
If this perfectly coordinated room didn’t give it away, Mark is the visionary behind some of the most famous interior sets in Hollywood. Along with designing the perfect home for movie darling Reese Witherspoon, he’s worked with Nancy Meyers to bring many of her film interiors to life.
Another rather obvious fact about Mark? He’s obsessed with blue and white: “Everyone who has ever met me knows that I am truly passionate about blue and white… This pair fills any space with freshness and crispness, as well as an air of relaxation, recalling striped beach umbrellas, leisurely summer days, and nautical adventures.”
The color scheme has almost become synonymous with his projects. He’s attributed the obsession to his childhood home, where he says the living room walls were blue damask, his bedroom was navy and the kitchen was bright blue. Now he says the combination is all-American and finds that many design enthusiasts connect with the two together.
Though Kelly began her career as an interior designer, her knack for style and eye for design has propelled her business into a “global luxury lifestyle brand.”
Her eccentric and bold style choices have attracted a roster of A-list clients, including Gwen Stefani and Cameron Diaz. Kelly is also a published author, writing four coffee table books about the worlds of design and decor called Rhapsody, HUE, Domicilium Decoratus, and Modern Glamour: The Art of Unexpected Style.
When Cameron Diaz’s Kelly Wearstler-designed NYC home hit the market, the press praised her design choices. From the custom four-poster bed to the 1960 Austrian ceiling fixture in the guest room, the details of the design were very well thought out.
Like Kelly, Kari’s ability to combine opulence with comfort has attracted clients from all over the world. Actors like Jessica Alba, Kristen Bell, Melanie Griffith and Antonio Banderas, Don Johnson, Virginia Madsen, Emilio Estevez, and Don Henley have all turned to her for design advice.
Kari founded her design firm KWI in 1994 and has been honing her signature style ever since. Described as “eclectic self-expressionism,” Whitman tries to keep her designs as green and as pet-friendly as possible.
Like most high-end celebrity designers, Kari’s skills extend far beyond the kitchen and TV room. She’s designed luxurious outdoor spaces for her clients in both California and Colorado.
