In the latest unexpected pairing (that's brought us new levels of joy), Jeremiah Brent has unofficially crossed with The White Lotus – to pair characters with spaces he's previously designed. 

'Yes, it seems like I have too much time on my hands, but also, I just think it's super fun personality-wise to see it translated in the space,' Jeremiah comments –  and of course, we're inclined to agree.

The designer, who founded his eponymous firm with locations in Los Angeles and New York City, has curated some of the world's best homes – but three, in particular, best align with Tanya, Portia, and Harper from the aforementioned show. 

'First would definitely be Tanya, a fan-favorite and a personal favorite of mine. [She] stresses me out so much, but I always think about this bar that I designed for her. It's open and grand. There are these dramatic curved sofas, and it's a bar,' Jeremiah Brent 'ays. 'The whole space is centered around coming together and having a good time, which is so 'Tanya.'

And it would seem Tanya has good taste. The whole space radiates a level of chicness, but the curvy sofa is particularly on trend for 2024 (after already shaping the way we decorated last year). 

'These become popular in the design world due to their ability to introduce organic forms,' adds Olson + Baker's design expert James Scaife. 'Unlike traditional straight-lined sofas, their curved silhouette adds softness and fluidity to the room. These curves bring dynamic energy and visual interest, creating a welcoming ambiance.'

To get the look (in a way that would surely impress Tanya), we're opting for this curvy sofa, designed by Leanne Ford below.

For Portia, Jeremiah brings things closer to home. 'Next would be Portia... She loves a pattern in the outfits she wears. I always think about our daughter Poppy’s bedroom [below], which is really vibrant and fun and young.'

And the designer saved Harper, one of his favorite characters, for last. 'I love a dark, moody, stray cat, and that’s what she reminds me of,' he notes. 'I did a bar in Beverly Hills that was dark and definitely a space to be enjoyed after 7pm. That reminds me of her.'

We can remind ourselves of these characters' quirks (or enjoy the series for the first time) by watching the series via Amazon Prime. That's our cozy January plans sorted.
