HALLWAY

The entrance to the apartment provides a sneak glimpse of what’s to come: eclectic furnishings, statement lighting and bold colors set against an all-white background. The man synonymous with a new kind of American glamour – refined, luxe, yet tongue-in-cheek risqué – is not renowned for his restrained aesthetic. Yet there’s the heart of a minimalist quietly beating beneath his brash, bold statements as he explains that when he designs objects, he makes them as pared down as possible.

DINING ROOM

The couple’s apartment has been created from knocking together two adjoining flats to form a 2,500 square foot living space. Its furnishings may be bright but the walls, ceilings, and floors are white. The ‘wowzer’ lights draw the eye up to the ornate vaulted ceilings while super-long drapes emphasise the tall, elegant windows.

A giant foot adds a grounded touch to this lofty space, which was formerly a living room before the two apartments were joined. It’s where Jonathan and husband, Simon Doonan eat breakfast every morning.

Jonathan often moves things around or brings home a new chair to check the seat is at the right height. As a designer he says he needs to live with his products, to sit on the furniture and touch the ceramics. It could all look different again next week.

LIVING ROOM

What makes Jonathan’s ‘unbridled, eclectic’ style work? The quiet precision of a restricted color palette (blue, green, orange) and the repetition of key motifs. The pared-back, all-white décor lets the furnishings shout out loud.

The couple goes to the living room every day for their regular game of Ping Pong. The Ed Paschke painting was originally commissioned for the Playboy Mansion. Now it overlooks this playful corner of the living room, complete with Mod-style cushions and a table supported by ram’s heads.

It’s the clarity and tonality of these shades that hang the look together – colors picked up and repeated from room to room, zigzags and houndstooth checks adding a Mod touch to monochrome.

BATHROOM

Jonathan has always loved the throw-it-togetherness of English decorating and feels that’s what this bathroom has. The brass H hung on the wall is a vintage Hermés display from Barneys New York.

BEDROOM

Jonathan’s mix-and-match style turns the usual bed-linen-headboard combo into something completely out of the ordinary, with nautical rope motifs vying for attention with baroque fabric.
