A Host’s Haven
Photographs by Paul Costello, Produced by Sara Ruffin Costello, Text by Amy Larocca

New cookbook author Katie Lee Joel wanted a sophisticated yet comfy home to suit her entertaining style. Architect Ahmad Sardar-Afkhami and decorator Nate Berkus knocked down walls, plotted color schemes and chose furniture with a single goal in mind: transform a New York City town house into a gracious hangout for boisterous dinner parties and quiet nights alike.

Joel outfitted her guest room with Leontine’s classic white sheeting, the ultimate in comfort and simplicity. Shown: Queen duvet cover, standard french cases, and queen sheet set in white Italian percale.
