Jewelry Designers at Home

by Shannon Grant

Some of my favorite Sneak Peeks are the homes of jewelry designers. Whether it be a vintage sign, brass hardware or a piece of fine art, each designer’s unique eye for detail, color and texture is revealed through the pieces they display around their home. So today we decided to go through our archives of jewelry designers’ homes and showcase 13 of our favorites. From modern lofts in Los Angeles to traditional houses in New Orleans, the spaces here really highlight the way each designer pays attention to detail not just in their work, but in their homes. Keep your eyes peeled for the “memory wall” in Iwona Ludyga’s home- we love the way she brings jewelry store-style displays home to highlight her favorite souvenirs, artwork and collectables.

Suggested For You


  • Hard to say which one I like more but the rug in the last one is quite beautiful and that vintage sign in the first one really brings the space together. And a spiral staircase surrounded by books, that’s pretty nice too.

  • Love the kitchen. Although, maybe not so much the brass. The open shelves, the wood tabletops and the white cinder block walls all add so much texture and rustic charm. It really is lovely. I do really like the brass stove hood, but I’m not really feeling the brass knobs and such.

    The spiral staircase with bookshelves is also perfect.

  • I love the ornate furnishing’s in Winifred’s home…and I am also comforted by the site of the power cords under the wardrobe…i thought mine was the only place where they stick out like a sore thumb :)

  • I love this house, it’s warm and there’s always something to discover, I love all the different colours and unusual items about the place. I simply could not cope with clinical looking minimalism.
