In the pantheon of celebrity couples, few come across as more open and engaging than singer-songwriter John Legend and Chrissy Teigen . Theirs is a romance, after all, that feels intimately familiar to fans of his music. (His recent hit love song “All of Me,” as a case in point, was dedicated to her.) Scenes from their lives, moreover, unfold hour by hour on Teigen’s wonderfully uncensored Instagram feed, now more than a million followers strong. Yet even the most approachable of stars crave privacy, and the nine-time Grammy Award winner and his muse find that and more in their Manhattan apartment, revamped by Don Stewart of the Los Angeles–based firm Desiderata Design.
The New York home of model Chrissy Teigen and singer-songwriter John Legend was renovated by Don Stewart of Desiderata Design in collaboration with Winka Dubbeldam of Archi-Tectonics.
A Donald Sultan painting surmounts a chest of drawers in the living room, while a framed Polly Borland tapestry hangs on the wall at far left; the dark leather armchairs are vintage Arne Norell designs from Emmerson Troop, the bronze side tables are by Stephanie Odegard Collection, and the carpet is by Doris Leslie Blau.
In the dining area, a steel wall serves as the backdrop for a mixed-media work by Mike Weber, a bronze bureau by BDDW, and an Aldo Bakker sculpture. Beneath a light fixture by Ochre, Ted Muehling candlesticks from BDDW cluster on a table from Lucca Antiques; the chairs were custom made by Stewart.

The master bath, featuring travertine walls and a black limestone herringbone floor, is outfitted with a Jacques Garcia mirror by Baker, a tub and fittings by Waterworks, and a taboret by Paul Mathieu for Stephanie Odegard Collection.
A 19th-century gilded-leather screen from Dmitriy & Co. spans one of the bedroom walls; the 1970s chandelier is from Lucca Antiques, the bed is from Siglo Moderno, the table lamps are by Kriest, the green silk coverlet is by Frette, and the carpet is from Doris Leslie Blau.
