SEAN MACPHERSON ON HOME DESIGN

Design
Macpherson

The man who, with Eric Goode, designed the polished Bowery and Maritime Hotels in New York, shares his advice for how to make your home guest-worthy.

Q: What's the biggest difference between home and hotel design?

A: Hotels are designed to be spotless. Virtually every item in the Bowery Hotel is made to be cleanable. You don't want to give that hygienic impression at home.

Q: So what is it, then, that makes some hotel rooms so appealing?

A: I used to live in the Chateau Marmont, and I loved that it was utterly immaculate all the time. Hotel rooms are optimistic and hopeful places. The stress is gone.

Q: How do you re-create that feeling at home?

A: Throw away your junk. I apply Jackie O's advice: When she got dressed, she looked at herself in the mirror. The first thing she saw she'd take off before she left. Monica Khemsurov
