MEET | JEFFREY ALAN MARKS
Featured 8.15-8.21 | If I could live anywhere in this country, it would be Santa Monica. If I could do any other job than the ones that I currently do, it would be interior design. So basically, I want to be Jeffrey Alan Marks. If you're not familiar with his work, he’s the California Golden Boy designer who stole the show on Bravo’s Million Dollar Decorator, using humor, charm and an incredible aesthetic to woo his clients and his viewers (me, in particular). His career spans more than 20 years and his MO is to combine the traditional and the edgy; the rugged and the refined to create incredible spaces that throw all design rules out the window. He’s designed everything from Malibu beach houses to London townhouses; he’s written books (The Meaning of Home), inspired fabric collections and created lines of furniture and bedding. Indeed, he is the king of laid-back luxury. Welcome to Jeffrey’s week.
