Celebrity decorator and talk show host Nate Berkus had his home featured in Elle Decor, not long after completing a historically respectful renovation of the 4,000-square-foot apartment in one of Chicago's preeminent pre-war condo buildings. But despite the press his place received, the brokerbabble for the flat, which was listed almost ten months ago, makes no mention of Berkus. The spread has had its price chopped by $500K, to $2.15M, since it was first listed, but that doesn't prevent the three-bed from being just as glossy-worthy now as it was back when Berkus was still interested in splitting his time between New York, Milan, and Chicago. After the jump, check out some more Elle Decor-featured interiors that are currently seeking new owners.
? Public relations guru Paul Wilmot tapped designer Andrew Galuppi to rework the interiors of his midcentury manse in Miami Shores, Fla. and guess what, they ended up on the pages of Elle Decor. Built around a lush courtyard, the four bedroom, 5.5 bathroom house last sold for $1.53M, meaning Wilmot isn't looking for much of a profit with the $1.6M asking price.
? According to the listing, this place was once featured in Elle Decor, but we doubt the place would make those pages today. The Rose Cottage in Eureka Springs, Ark., which comes furnished, has an outdated pink-and-green color scheme and distressed furniture galore. That's not exactly the sleek contemporary look we're used to. At least this place has a petite price tag to go with the dated styling, just $229K.
? Not surprisingly, prices in NYC are a bit higher than those in Arkansas, but the Elle Decor mention is still a strong selling point. The only trouble for this West Village loft is that fact the building, not this particular apartment, was featured in the magazine. Oh well, that doesn't seem to matter for the one-bedroom loft, which is currently asking $1.05M. One plus, the 850-square-foot pad has especially low maintenance.
? Not all houses that have been featured in the shelter mags enjoy the same sort of photographic excellence when they go up for sale. This Hudson, N.Y. center hall house has just two distorted photos attached to its listing, a far cry from the photos that earned the place a spot on an Elle Decor cover back in 1998. Better yet, the brick home is listed for just $325K.
