Jamie Bush grew up in Long Island, New York, in what he describes as "an eclectic family of dairy farmers." His close proximity to Manhattan introduced him to the work of influential designers, photographers, and artists, inspiring him to pursue art and architecture. Bush went studied design in Venice, Italy and New Orleans, ultimately obtaining a master’s in architecture from Tulane University. Upon graduation, Bush ventured west to Los Angeles, where he worked at Marmol Radziner and Kelly Wearstler before founding his own interior architecture and design firm in 2002.
Bush has collaborated with many prominent architects, including Steven Ehrlich, David Hertz, and Barbara Bestor, which makes sense considering his keen ability to blur the line between architecture and interior design. In addition to establishing fluidity between architecture and design, Bush’s aesthetic incorporates beautifully imperfect natural materials and fine craftsmanship, giving his spaces a polished but not overdone appearance. To that end, Bush also typically mixes old and new elements, such as vintage decor and contemporary artwork, to create multi-dimensional spaces.
To demonstrate why so many elite clientele flock to Bush to design their most intimate spaces, we highlight a few of our favorite Bush-designed interiors below.
