After two successful series of live webinars featuring some of the UK’s most stylish homeowners, next month we’re going global.
Once a week, our editors will be coming live to a Zoom near you, interviewing Livingetc regulars Jonathan Adler, Sarah Sherman Samuel, Robert Novogratz and Rayman Boozer about how they’ve decorated their own homes, with the chance for you to pose your own questions, too.
Starting on April 6 and then throughout the month, you’ll get to take a virtual tour of their inspirational homes and discover the design secrets of some of the most exciting and dynamic people working in interiors right now.
To book, visit livingetcevents.com/housetours. Tickets from £10, and include a 3 month digital subscription worth £7.99 and a presentation to keep of the featured home.
Robert Novogratz, April 6
The Novogratz family have featured in Livingetc many times, and so it's exciting to be able to hear about their LA home in Robert Novogratz's own words. It's a 1920s ‘castle’ in the Hollywood Hills, with a large basement with a cinema room, music room, home office, wine cellar and bar, WC, two bedrooms and a bathroom. The ground floor has an open-plan dining room, kitchen and family room, plus a separate living room, laundry room, one bedroom and three bathrooms. The master suite with bedroom, bathroom and walk-in wardrobe, plus another bedroom, playroom and bathroom, are on the first floor.

Rayman Boozer, April 13
Rayman Boozer's home was featured in our February 2021 issue, and was a welcome dose of color inspiration in the middle of winter. The founder of design agency Apartment 48, Rayman's live-work loft apartment is a converted factory in NoHo, New York, bought from one of the Jonas brothers.As well as a covetable way with blue paint, it has an open-plan living/dining/kitchen area, an office area, a master bedroom with en suite and a further bathroom.

SARAH SHERMAN SAMUEL, April 20
Sarah Sherman Samuel's house was the cover story of Livingetc in July 2020. It's a fairly recently built house on a wooded hill in Michigan. ‘It’s a house of contradictions and the playful design veers towards asymmetry,’ Sarah says. ‘It was built in 1980 but it has mid-century and post-modern elements. There are amazing features everywhere, like the giant circular skylight in the family room. I knew that I wanted to change the floor plan significantly but I loved the overall whimsical element of the property.’

Jonathan Adler, April 27
Design legend Jonathan Adler has created a whole aesthetic, filled with wit, gilt edges and fun shapes. And no more so than at his home, an apartment in Greenwich Village, Manhattan, New York. In 2001 he doubled the square footage and bought the adjacent unit, filling the space with Jonathan’s trademark witty pieces and, in his words, Modern American Glamour.
