Celebrities of all levels have a long history of taking a great amount of pride in their homes. Big, beautiful properties are stifled when their interior design is not at its peak. Hiring the best of the best in interior design is the only way to achieve the desired look without dedicating time that could be spent working on a career.
You probably need a little hint as to where to begin your search for a talented interior designer (aka luxurious furniture arranger). You are in luck. Let the enlightenment start here with a quick look into a few of Hollywood’s most celebrated interior designers.
When the stars want a home that speaks of wealth, but does not look overdone or excessively lavish, they go to Joan Behnke. She has loosely been named “the billionaire whisperer.” Living in California, this 60ish designer has built quite a name for herself.
She has completed several projects for millionaire Alec Gores, Sylvester Stallone, and an unnamed music mogul. It is safe to say she knows what she is doing in the field.
Martyn Lawrence Bullard

He has done designs for Sarah Jessica Parker, Matthew Broderick, Andy Cohen, Lynn Harris, and Marci Klein, along with many others.
