Habitually Chic Designer: Thom Filicia
My post about Nate Berkus had me thinking about my other favorite TV makeover marvel Thom Filicia. With all that charitable work helping straight men clean up their acts, it’s easy to forget that he is a real interior designer with a fabulous portfolio behind him. And speaking of behinds, he was also the miracle worker behind Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony’s Long Island home, seen above and in the next four photos below from the premier issue of Vogue Living.
In the living room above, Marc Anthony’s antiques hold court of the shelves in front of recamier sofas custom designed by Thom Filicia Inc., while the white lacquer bench, ebonized Lelau tables and mirror are from Holly Hunt.
Filicia said the home which was originally Anthony’s retreat was a challenge because he wanted it to feel comfortable yet represent their personalities which are very different. She’s obviously glamorous and he’s a bit of a bohemian, as are a lot of musicians. But Lopez said she “can appreciate the bohemian side, and he also can appreciates glamorous things, so it was easy for us to meld.
