Anyone who comes to Jennifer Post seeking an all-white interior would be advised to instead let the designer
guide them to a richer, more complex version. Her explorations into her “modern classicism” have evolved as
her residential projects have grown in scale.

“The philosophy hasn’t changed,” she explains. “I still do clean, pure, elegant minimalism, but I don’t want to
do all white anymore. My tastes have been refined; they’re more sophisticated. Post, who creates 99 percent
of the pieces in her interiors - from rugs to furniture - is effusive when talking about her inspirations: architect
Santiago Calatrava (”a brilliant engineer”), Louise Nevelson (”way before her time”) and designer Alberto Pinto
(”I’ve read every book about him - his symmetry, his materials are incredible. He’s Grace Kelly!”) But she
reserves special mention for her parents. “They gave me the freedom to become Jennifer.”

"Trust your gut, trust your value system, and create the lifestyle you've always dreamed of. And find the
designer who understands your soul."

Know for her elegantly minimal approach to design, Jennifer Post creates "clean, sophisticated, modern
interiors," using light and volume like artists' tools. An unabashed perfectionist, she believes firmly that beauty
lies in the details, both in the interior design and in the architecture. "My number one goal is to archieve my
client's vision," she points out. "I am highly disciplined and extremely focused on my work and my philosophy.
I build around light and try to accentuate the natural source of light, and, if I have to, I alter the interior
architecture to accomplish this. Furthermore, I will not compromise on a finish or a texture or a fabric, and my
clients appreciate this." Far from severe, a typical Post interior is seamless, with a "feeling of freedom and an
understated sense of luxury," she maintains. "I believe one lives and feels best in an uncluttered environment.
After all, the less you have, the more elegant a home looks, and you can then enjoy your finest things. My
interiors are luscious and comfortable and extremely functional."

The New York designer is concentrating on large-scale residential projects around the United States, such as
homes in Los Angeles; Aspen, Colorado; and Florida. Her dream project? "To do a cantilevered glass house
looking over the ocean. You look out to the horizon, and there's nothing to take your attention but the water.
The interiors and the exteriors become one."

featured in Architectural Digest over the past several years. This special section, which last appeared in the
January 2002 issue, gives readers a chance to explore a richly varied landscape of styles; it also offers
personal profiles of the figures behind the work, shedding light on their individual approaches and
philosophies. We hope you'll find it a useful guide as well as an inspiring survey of the very best.

My interiors are about being understated," explains Jennifer Post. "They speak softly but carry a big stick."
Indeed, her "classical contemporary" residences are noted for their clean lines, elegant spatial layouts and
tailored furnishings. Post prefers to be involved with projects from the interior architecture "to the linens and
pillowcases" and has done so for clients who include celebrities Jennifer Lopez and Matt Lauer. She also
designs most of the furnishings herself and has just launched her first furniture line, which features pieces with
"great woods and lacquer finishes." The designer, who grew up in Cincinnati and received a master's in fine
arts, design and film photography, worked in advertising as an art director and then for an architectural firm in
New York before starting her own firm, which also has offices in Miami and Los Angeles, in 1991. She hasn't,
however, strayed too far from the fine arts. "I spend most of my free time painting or taking black-and-white
photographs," she says.
