Nate Berkus and Jeremiah Brent collectively have decades of design experience. Together the couple channeled their elegant yet functional style into every inch of their summer home in Montauk, New York. The interior designers are so proud of their work on the dwelling that they’ve decided to become hosts on Airbnb and invite fans to experience it all—up close and personal.
Bookings for Berkus and Brent’s ’70s-inspired abode will open at 1 p.m. ET on May 31. The one-night stay is scheduled for June 10—and the rental price is a steal, at just $19. The deal is available for two lucky guests, who will also be greeted by the design duo upon arrival and given a tour of the residence.
The exterior of the Hamptons home has a moody black finish and is surrounded by greenery. Inside it’s got a decidedly brighter look: The space is filled with natural light (which both Berkus and Brent name as their favorite aspect of the abode) and decked out in warm neutrals and lots of wood accents, featured everywhere from the bedposts to the railing to the doorframes.
“We reached for things that are handmade, handwoven, and easy to live with,” Berkus tells AD of his and Brent’s approach to designing the space. “The house has changed several times since we first moved in, but the balance remains the same—we wanted it to feel like a beach house, but one without borders.”
The living room features long windows that display views of the lush outdoor area, which comes complete with tables, seating, and a patio with checkerboard flooring. As a summer home, naturally, there’s a pool for guests to cool off in, as well as covered patios. The surrounding natural environment offers plenty for guests to explore when they’re not enjoying the home, including nearby trails, maritime forests, and rolling dunes. The beach is a stone’s throw away for those who prefer the waves and sand to the calm of the home’s private pool. They’ll also be able to explore Montauk’s many canal-side shops.
Whether it’s spending time in the water or curling up with a book from Berkus’s personal collection, there will no doubt be plenty for guests to take advantage of. Brent hopes that whomever they end up welcoming into their home uses it as a space to connect with family or a friend.
“The house was designed with love and quality time in mind,” Brent says. “We want each guest to feel at home and immediately embraced by that kind of energy. ”
