Interior Designer Eric Hughes Reveals the Celeb Client Who Wanted an ‘Over-the-Top, Studio 54 Powder Room’
The space also has “all these portraits of his ladies"
Forget the Clubhouse, Andy Cohen’s powder room is the hottest spot in town!
Celebrity interior designer Eric Hughes exclusively spilled the decorating secrets of 5 of his A-list clients in this week’s issue of PEOPLE, noting that the Watch What Happens Live host begged for a bold bathroom filled with his favorite famous faces.
“From the get-go he said he wanted a crazy, over-the-top, Studio 54 powder room,” Hughes says in the above video of the cherry-covered space in Cohen’s New York City townhouse. “There’s all these portraits of his ladies: there’s Diana Ross, there’s Madonna, all of them.”
And Cohen isn’t the only one with extravagant requests.
“Sarah Jessica [Parker] loves a geranium red, it’s one of her favorite colors,” Hughes says of the Sex and the City star. In her farmhouse-style kitchen, he had the shade hand-brushed on the island, as opposed to sprayed, “so it had a little bit of age to it.”
Lauren Graham’s character in Gilmore Girls always favors the eccentric, but in her real Los Angeles home, she was a little more hesitant to roll with Hughes’ suggestion to wallpaper her entire dining room (ceilings included).
“I said, ‘Trust me on this one,’” he says after Graham mentioned her uncertainty. “So we did it, and it’s really pretty.”
