At home with stylist Joey Tierney, event planner Tony Schubert
For celebrity stylist Joey Tierney and event producer Tony Schubert, interior decorating at home isn’t much different from handling fashion shoots or Emmy parties. “It’s interesting how fashion trends and colors cross over to interiors,” Tierney says.
Tierney may help Ashley Madekwe and Jaime Pressly look glamorous, but at home in Sherman Oaks with Schubert, she admits she is a bit more low key. “At home, I am a minimalist,” Tierney says.
Schubert purchased the home before he met Tierney and says “it might have been intended to be a bachelor pad.” He did a considerable amount of work, installing hardwood floors, gutting the kitchen and bathrooms and replacing crown molding and base boards. “It was my first home,” says Schubert, chief executive of Event Eleven.
After the couple started dating, Tierney began spending time with Schubert at his home and began offering her input.
“It’s not easy moving into someone’s house,” Tierney says. “But Tony’s forte is design. It was a tender product. I was careful not to change much.”
Schubert says the home needed a little warmth. The stylist’s take? “It needed a woman’s touch, honey,” Tierney says, laughing.
The result is a testament to both -- a warm mix of charcoal woods and vibrant color, bold textiles and Tierney’s own paintings, cozy nooks and a luxurious outdoor space inspired by a honeymoon trip to the Greek island of Santorini.
Corrected: An earlier version of this post implied that Tierney’s current clients include Kristen Bell. Bell is a former client.
