The Meaningful Story of Jeremiah Brent and Nate Berkus’ Mid-Century Modern Home
When Jeremiah Brent and Nate Berkus started their lives as a couple, they moved to an apartment in Greenwich Village, which besides being their first home together, was also their first interior design project. From 2013 to 2016, they shared their love and family stories in this flat. Still, the couple decided to move to Los Angeles, where they renovated a Spanish colonial villa in Hancock Park.
But they were predicted to return to New York City, and just a few years after moving to Los Angeles with their family of four, they decided to return to New York. The new place they chose to call home was an 1899 townhouse in West Village, where the couple worked together in the renovation, which in the end, they labeled as their forever family home. But here comes the plot for this emotional story – the West Village townhouse wasn’t the forever home for the Jeremiah Brent and Nate Berkus family.
The truth is that they never stop to think about their first apartment together, where their family story started, and where they discovered the beauty of living together. When they decided to return to New York City, the apartment was their first thought for their new home, but the owner didn’t want to sell it.
But what is meant to be will be. Fortunately, a few years after Jeremiah Brent and Nate Berkus moved to New York (and already with their “forever” family home finished), they received a call from the owner of their former apartment telling them that the house was going to sale and asking if they would like to purchase it. They didn’t think twice and believed that this was a destiny signal – but there was a problem – now, they were a family of four.
To the apartment fit a family of four, the solution only could be to expand the space. But, for that, Jeremiah Brent and Nate Berkus needed to find an adjacent apartment to buy. As Brent was convinced they needed to return to their first apartment, he started to call the neighbors and even left a note under one of the neighbors asking if he could be interested in selling the apartment.
We can’t say that this was an easy task – since the neighbor that agreed to sell put one condition – that the couple needed to find an apartment in the same building in exchange. But as you can imagine, everything went well, and Jeremiah Brent and Nate Berkus are where everything started. More than a place, this mid-century modern home is an emotional space for them that they now share with their two children.
