With a constant stream of new entertainment projects, jointly produced product lines, and two small kids at home, interior designers Nate Berkus and Jeremiah Brent enjoy a lot of, shall we say, quantity time. But when it comes to private commissions, the duo tends to stick to their independent design studios. “We only work together for special clients,” Brent explains succinctly. Happily, Brian Robbins, the CEO and president of Kids & Family Entertainment at ViacomCBS, and his wife, Tracy James, a wardrobe stylist and clothing designer, more than meet the criterion of special. The two couples met when Berkus and Brent designed a Los Angeles home in Hancock Park for Robbins, James, their young daughter, Stella, and Robbins’s sons from a previous marriage, Justin and Miles. They’ve been thick as thieves ever since.
“Honestly, we think of them as family. When we go out to dinner, Brian and I are the two short Jewish guys stuffing our mouths with hamburgers, while Jeremiah and Tracy are on the other side of the table giggling over salads and ice chips,” Berkus says. James paints a similar picture in somewhat more delicate tones: “We really connected with them on an emotional level, especially around our kids,” she says.
