Update: It has come to my attention that this home does not belong to Preston, but rather his design partner, Jen Dyer, who designed it. Click here for the full update.
Preston Lee’s super swank design style earned him a place amongst the last three designers standing in the finale of Top Design last week. By now, you probably know that Nathan walked away with top honors, but I certainly believe that Preston’s work deserves an honorable mention.
Preston’s design aesthetic is a total reflection of who he is: young, sexy, hip, and very L.A., which makes him appeal to a broad audience. The Top Design judges consistently lauded Preston on his ability to pull a room together through the use of color and texture and often compared his look to that of a swanky boutique hotel.The pictures I have gathered here are from Preston’s personal residence in Los Angeles.
Preston seems to have pulled back a little in the breakfast room, where he chose to use a more muted palette of soft yellows, browns, and taupes. I think the mix of pillows is fantastic, the chandelier is amazing, and I love the idea of the banquette in place of chairs.
Preston cranks the volume back up in his dining room where he mixes colors and textures yet again. Picture this room lit only by candlelight on a Saturday night. It’s a fabulous backdrop for a sexy cocktail party.
