Home Edition’ Designer Critiques Late-Night Hosts’ Decor

Freda A. Nix

The “stay-at-home” orders enacted across the U.S. in recent weeks to slow the spread of the coronavirus have taken away Americans’ abilities to do many things. But one new pastime they’ve given us is analyzing the home decor of late-night hosts now broadcasting their shows from their respective homes.

TheWrap had HGTV “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” designer Breegan Jane critique the broadcasted homes of Stephen Colbert, James Corden, Trevor Noah, Jimmy Fallon, Seth Meyers, Jimmy Kimmel and Conan O’Brien. She was impressed by a few — and not so much by others. Jane preferred the spaces that have clearly been “dressed” for TV.

“It’s OK to set the stage a little bit,” she said. “I like the ‘A’ for effort.”

Designer Nicole Fuller – Greenwich Village New York Townhouse

Freda A. Nix

ELLE Decor A-List interior designer Nicole Fuller began her career in fashion, so it’s hardly a surprise that one of the first questions she asks her clients is if she can take a look inside their closet.

“A lot of times when I ask a client what color they like, they have no idea,” says Fuller, a former model. “So I go into their closet and look at the shades they wear, and we ignite this collaborative dialogue.”

While living in King’s Cross in London, Fuller designed her own apartment; her fellow models and friends in fashion encouraged her to launch her own firm, which she did in New York City almost a decade ago. She is known for the bold palette and stylish gestures she brings to her design projects, which have included homes for Zac Posen, Cass Bird, and Gianvito Rossi.

As an Emmy Award–winning television personality on shows like the original 2003 Queer Eye for the Straight Guy and 2018’s Get a Room with Carson & Thom, both on Bravo, Thom Filicia is accustomed to reimagining—and overhauling—spaces for design-challenged folks on extremely tight deadlines. It is a highly calibrated process whose final goal is as much about improving the emotional well-being of the clients in question as it is about aesthetics. When it comes to his personal environs, however, Filicia takes a more casual, free-associative approach that provides ample opportunity for creative brainstorming.

Designer Jay Jeffers – San Francisco Apartment With Amazing Views

Freda A. Nix

Designer Jay Jeffers is known for creating interiors that are perfect reflections of their owners. He is drawn toward projects where a story can be told, as is evident in the homes featured in his two design books, Be Bold: Bespoke Modern Interiors and Collected Cool: The Art of Bold, Stylish Interiors. He also creates lighting, furniture, and accessories for Arteriors.

Jeffers’s designs are driven by the personality of his clients and their lifestyle. “The geography of the home and its inhabitants inform the aesthetic even more than I do,” he says.

One such homeowner was in search of a modern interior that could complement the extraordinary views of the Golden Gate Bridge in his new home in San Francisco’s Russian Hill neighborhood. He sought out Jeffers, who jokes that his firm seems to have a niche in designing “bachelor pads.”
