You Should Know: Nathan Turner and Eric Hughes

by Christie Grimm · March 18, 2016

Two interior decorators. One black lab. Could there be a more picture perfect family? We absolutely adore Nathan. Not only does he bring life to every room he designs (nobody pops color quite like this guy), he's also the life of every party he attends. Whom else would we have even dreamed of hosting a beach soirée in Malibu with? As for Eric? Well, this Elle Decor darling is as impossibly lovely as he is impossibly tall. And at 6' 7", that's saying something. Oh, and but of course,  let us not forget Nacho. Shop dog extraordinaire, and perpetually camera ready canine.
