Designer Profile: Trina Turk & Nanette Lepore Enhance Their Homes with Pillows

Fashion designers Trina Turk & Nanette Lepore have both recently come out with gorgeous pillow collections, and we can see why—each woman’s home flawlessly uses them to make a statement. We got a behind-the-scenes look at these ladies’ diggs. Check out how they use pillows to amp up their look at home:

Trina Turk

The LA home that Trina Turk shares with her husband speaks volumes to her design aesthetic. Her contemporary-meets-retro California concept in designing clothing (worn by stars like Eva Mendes and Teri Hatcher) transfers to her decor. Bright punches of valencia orange, electrified pink, neon green, and aqua are used generously throughout the house. “My motto is to not take myself too seriously because I think there are plenty of people in the fashion industry who take themselves way too seriously.” says Trina (NeonTommy).

In the living room, neutral cream drapery and an off-white couch get a dose of color with an eclectic mix of patterned pillows in unconventional hues that are pulled from the Persian rug and outdoor space.Trina Turk's Home - Living Room Interior Decor

In one of the bedrooms, we see the same cream drapery as in the living room. The bed becomes the focal point here, with lots of playful printed pillow in sorbet hues.

The second bedroom is a bit more masculine, opting for a neutral palette that’s offset by a pop of orange. Striped pillows add some structure and pattern to the solid chair, drapes, and bedding. “I  like to combine neutrals with brights within prints and love the power of black—a black ground print is often the most striking version” (Apartment Therapy).

Nanette Lepore

Esteemed fashion designer Nanette Lepore is known for her unique take on femininity–it’s edgy, frilly, and boho-chic all at once. Her West Village townhouse, decorated with the help of Jonathan Adler, brings this look to fruition in a stunning mix of jewel tones and metallics. It’s Old Hollywood meets gypsy. “The Thirties are a great mix of everyday glamour and something a bit more practical,” says Lepore (BrainyQuote).

The living room combines elements that are both vintage and modern. Antique furniture from several different decades is enhanced by an unexpected combination of daintily embroidered and animal print pillows.

The white-walled master bedroom definitely plays on Nanette’s inspiration from her bohemian childhood. Neutral bedding is offset by tons of chartreuse and fuschia pillows that are tied together by the Vishnu needlepoint wall hanging. Silver accents and a mirrored headboard provide some shine.

The majority of the furniture is a deep burgundy in the sitting room, so the pillows lift up the look with cobalt blues, ethnic prints that pick up on the drapery’s hue. The teal ottoman also adds a complementary pop of color.
