Elle Decor’s A-List of the Best Interior Designers – Get to know the top interior designers selected by Elle Decor.
India Mahdavi has a lot in common with Henri Matisse. Like a fauvist, the Paris-based designer and architect uses rich, complementary colors in both her commercial and residential projects to immediately elicit a layered—mostly giddy—response from visitors. She creates worlds that are uncanny: they feel familiar, but are at the same time completely alien. Recently, she created collections for Pierre Frey and Bisazza and opened the much-feted Ladurée salon de thé in Tokyo.
More than anyone, Nate Berkus is the public face of contemporary design. A TV personality who designs products for Target, he’s also an accomplished and sophisticated interior designer. His own predilections tend toward neutral palettes; natural materials like leather, linen, and wicker; and objects made by hand. He is currently working on a television project with his husband Jeremiah Brent.

A fourth-generation Californian by way of the Bay Area, Nathan Turner wrote the book on the state’s aesthetic, called I Love California, as well as a book on classic American Style. The Los Angeles-based designer counts A-list stars, including Mindy Kaling and Armie and Elizabeth Hammer, among his clients.
Trading his time between New York and San Francisco, Ken Fulk’s designs are bold, evocative, and inventive — and attract the clients to match, such as Pharrell. In the public sphere, you might have encountered his work at one of the many trendy Major Food Group bars and restaurants he’s decorated.
ASHE + LEANDRO
Former set designer Ariel Ashe and architect Reinaldo Leandro’s NYC firm Ashe + Leandro mixes contemporary luxury and natural materials to create spaces that feel open and timeless. Past projects include work for Liev Schreiber and Seth Meyers, who is the husband of Ashe’s sister.
