Vision Board: Tara Bernerd
Given her attachment to midcentury, interior designer Tara Bernerd was the perfect choice to outfit the Four Seasons Fort Lauderdale. Here she shares the objects and places that color her worldly, casual sensibility.
Though born and raised in London, interior designer Tara Bernerd is a true global citizen, equally at home in European and Asian cities, or in South Florida, where she created the interiors for the game-changing Four Seasons Fort Lauderdale, which counts as her first commission for the hospitality brand. The project, which set a new luxury bar for the city, is inflected with Bernerd’s love of midcentury furnishings, inspired by browsing the revered Phillips London auction house. When she travels, summers are for Portofino: “It’s all about a certain attitude, the colors, the quality of the light, the layered design and the consistent attention to every detail,” Bernerd says. “Despite this familiarity, each time I am there I find new inspiration.” And her signature look is dressing up or down with her self-curated selection of bracelets, beads and watches.
