Atwood's Milan Apartment

If you love shoes half as much as I do you know this handsome young man. And when you're dating design mogul Nate Berkus you're sure to have a great apartment. Brian Atwood credits his mother's amazing wardrobe for his fascination with the fashion industry and Gianni Versace for giving him his first taste of Italian living. He is now operating his own label and serving as creative director of Bally, which I know as the only shoe my father ever wore. His Milan apartment was originally two units that underwent an eight month renovation under architect Matteo Bermani and continues to be style by Berkus. Photography by Simon Upton.

Atwood takes a break in his studio. He wears mostly Bally and sometimes Tom Ford.

Berkus claims that Milan is a difficult city to navigate. Many of the stores are hard to find and keep odd hours. The couch is B & B Italia and the vintage cocktail table from 1stDibs. The hand chair was a vintage find in Manhattan, very similar to the chair in Adler's Palm Beach condo.

A 1970's Flair desk is accompanied by a wood and chrome credenza from Spazio 900.

Martinique wallpaper! Such a classic. Vintage Pace Collection chairs accent the dining area.

A vestibule plays landing spot for a Hermes bag and Bally shoes, of course.

Nothing says gay man's library like a vintage Farah Fawcett poster!

Some interior shots display a decent sized Milan kitchen, Atwood's showroom with a vintage Zebra rug, another glimpse of the library.
