Inside Nate Berkus and Jeremiah Brent's California Dream House | Open Door | Architectural Digest



we're rolling I'm Ricky Martin and I'm John Joseph a Swedish Syrian artist we are them we were just shorter listen yeah hi to Nate Berkus and Jeremiah Brent hello welcome to our LA home we wanted to give you guys a behind-the-scenes tour and really show you what the details of the house are and also what's changed come on in come on this is Tucker hey Chuck say hi Chuck say what's up the Bannister is actually original to the house and of course we kept all the original architectural details and just kind of added things that we really wanted like this amazing floor and even as you're blood on it I'm still bleeding yeah Jared dropped his scissors on this foot this morning so it look good that's amazing it's your DNA you know let's go in the library this used to be our dining room but we were at dinner with friends of ours in Italy they brought us into this room after dinner and we just sat there and hung out for like three hours just talking and the room was filled with objects and books and we thought wait why don't we have that and we changed everything within two days all of the books actually are in different sections and so I had these little labels made there actually dog tags this is my library we drink at five o'clock every that you can read yeah it's perfect this I would say is one of our favorite things in the house this mirror right yes so Matthias greens McGrath the photographer he hand makes these pieces so it's an old African mask and old Venetian mirror and then shells and some glue that's DIY this is our toilet this was our favorite invoice ever in the entire renovation of this house because the man that we bought it from wrote on the invoice sink with ears with ears okay so this was originally I would imagine like a little wine cellar or something this is also our daughter's absolute favorite place to hide the hide this is also where I put when he misbehaves so this is my favorite place in the house it is kind of the epitome of indoor/outdoor we really wanted it to feel like you didn't even know that it was glass here and it's beautiful during the mornings it is even more beautiful at night this is our grown-up room everybody has that room when you're growing up that your parents like you're not allowed in there we basically never come in here but it's the first room you see when you walk through the entry hold the fireplace and old Belgian roof tiles used inside and then Jer from these awesome called balls these are Jewish balls they go in the fireplace this room we thought we would spend a ton of time in watching movies as a family Hey Game of Thrones room we wanted the space to have like a casual luxury to it and this room is really just a pit our daughter can climb all over the sofa we have play dates of other kids they can run it all over everything it's outdoor fabric this is the reason I can't stay on a staple diet yeah this is brutal you guys check this out these are so good what they really are though they're shows back away from the malt balls why are they beating balls today a lot of balls in the house bed so you guys this used to be our like sort of a walk through kind of a gallery and we had all of the books that you just saw in the library shoved into this cabinet we had an idea of how we're gonna live in the psalm and then after being here for four months were like wow we don't live this way we don't use the space that way so we shifted things around you're you're sitting here and you're enjoying the view of the garden that's your cue to get that shot later so you can you know cut to that this is my great uncle Karl it's not the thing about this home is there's certain architectural details that we didn't want to change and we just wanted to call more attention to like this ceiling it's beautiful it's super ornate nothing that we would normally gravitate towards but it kind of reminds me of our home that we had in New York all right weird we're tuned up can I see they are I'll show you the tree that made me cry I like to think of myself as Doctor Dolittle we inherited all these koi fish and two Turtles whose names are Thelma and Louise hi guys the moment that I knew that this was the place that we would raise our kids is this tree 300 year old oak tree we imagined our kids you know eventually climbing in that tree this is where we grow vegetables for our house just the first time Nate's been in here so make sure you zoom in I'm a complete expert this is broccoli right yes that's broccoli this is broccoli this is all broccoli this is all broccoli this is what papi wanted for christmas a pink baby doll house I mean have you ever seen more beautiful linens in your entire life but I have to say I'm not not on board with this check it out this is right your honor like I said these are not your big-girl bed come on guys you heard her yeah so what do we do daddy soda pom-pom for his nose and New Year's right cuz this was this was mine when I was her age so it's older than me yeah you're so brutal so this door is our bedroom come on in guys so the secrets to a lovely marriage if you can a separate closet sweeps right at least for the two of us so this is my dressing room our as Nate likes to call it my investment portfolio lots of shoes I basically only wear this side everything black I like to think that our color but it never really works out that way pops can you pick out a fate which one of your favorite shoes oh that's not even true what looks different about daddy's closet today does it look like this all the time it does yeah it's not usually messy really oh okay we have different ways of organizing organizing yeah I'm organized that's the difference that is our bathroom which was had painted by a friend and artist James Mobley one of the things that was obviously really important to us is this idea of inside and outside so he reached out to a dear friend of ours and he actually created this mural based on the trees and the area some of them are actually specific trees on the streets and we love it it feels like you're in a tree house that's daddy's back yeah snacks and ice all right well let's go in this kitchen actually we didn't really have to change that much because the layout was exactly what it was and this island was exactly how it was the same stone even the same paint on the base this kitchen for whatever reason the second we walked into it it felt like the heart of the home and it really is the haram every morning every evening yeah so this is really where we spend all of our time and then over here this is open to the family room on this side this is really where we spend almost all of our time as a family and at night when we're done filming when we're done working when we're done doing all the things that we do I lay here Jeremiah lays here and we watch Netflix now what do you say thank you and nice to meet you see you later see you later what does daddy say to you go play in traffic no see ya guys thank you so much for coming and I hope you enjoyed the behind-the-scenes of how we live they gotta go to other go they can go see other houses
