Nina Garcia has had to do quite a bit more than click her vertiginous Tom Ford heels to make herself feel at home. For years she was too busy juggling the roles of mother, fashion director of Marie Claire, and judge on the popular reality show Project Runway, now airing its tenth season, to focus on creating a stellar personal haven. But with help from the right designer, it finally came together.

Carlos Aparicio took over the Garcia-Conrod project, which included restoring architectural details, as well as enlarging the living room so the couple could entertain more comfortably. Meanwhile, architect and client explored their shared affinity for French and Scandinavian furnishings of the 1930s and ’40s. “Back then there was a tight relationship between furniture designers and the fashion world,” Aparicio says. “Jean-Michel Frank, for example, created interiors for Schiaparelli, Lelong, and Guerlain. I think Nina liked the fact that many of the pieces had a link to her professional world.”
