To a very elaborate birthday celebration, Preston dazzles us with his luxurious, out-of-this-world designs.

When he heads home though, it’s to a comfortably chic New York City apartment designed by his longtime friend and interior designer Vicente Wolf. Take a peek  inside.

What was your inspiration in designing your home?

Living in NY, looking at the sky and great sunlight are very important to me. I wanted to create the feeling of sunlight even at night, so we chose a wonderful yellow with accents of blue. Because I entertain a lot, I wanted it to be a very relaxed and functional space.

How do you translate your work as an event planner into your home?

I like my home to be a background for the props or flowers that I bring in weekly to give it a different look, almost like living on a theatrical set.

What is the most meaningful thing in your home?

The most meaningful things in my home are the huge windows exposing the sky. After leaving the hectic streets of NY, this is my escape — close to heaven.

What’s the best design advice you’ve ever received?

My best design advice was always to create a space that is extremely easy to maintain. And that advice came from me because I hate taking off my shoes before entering anyone’s home.

What are favorite places to shop for the home?

My top three places to go shopping are VW Home, any nursery with flowering plants and FRETTE. I love great bedding.

    I was priviledged to be part of a team that worked with Preston Bailey's team in setting up several visual tables and a fantasy bar for the Wedding March on Madison in New York City a few years ago. Preston's vision and execution was nothing short of awe inspiring. Open, airy and richly colorful, the venue was a huge hit with the brides, all of whom lingered as long as possible taking it all in! He is a gracious and charming personality as well!

    I would be delighted if Preston would share some tips with me in decorating our gold coast accommodation specials with his signature creativity. I think it will be that amazing.

    It's only right that a man like him has stunning furniture and decor in his own apartment. It wouldn't be right if he could design event location layouts, but could organize his own living area.
