Touchdown into Football Season: A Glimpse into Henck Design’s Philadelphia Eagles Player Portfolio

Have you ever wondered where the Philadelphia Eagles are nesting when they’re not scoring touchdowns? Over the past decade, Henck Design has outfitted the family homes of several players, giving them the sanctuaries they need to rejuvenate when off the field. Let’s take a victory lap and look back at our past collaborations with some of our favorite Eagles.

Most recently, Christina Henck and her team transformed the 10,000-square-foot Haverford home of Eagles defensive end and Super Bowl LII champion, Brandon Graham. The theme for this Main Line Professional Athlete Home Redesign was laid-back luxury, with a perfect fusion of modern and classic elements.

Throughout the home, Henck kept to a light neutral color palette and layered materials like marble, light woods, and antique mirrored finishes to create an elegant transitional feel.

Notable design features include the sprawling double-island in the chef’s kitchen, featuring both Calcutta Marble and butcher block countertops, the Venetian plaster ceiling in the dining room, and the bespoke cream sectional opposite a grand Italian fireplace in the living room.

The Henck Design team created a luxurious yet kid-friendly living space for BG, complete with custom-made furniture and draperies in cream-colored performance fabrics.

This Super Bowl champion needed an epic man cave, and the HD team dedicated Graham’s entire lower floor to crafting just that. The four-part room, which boasts a full bar, kitchen, and projector screen, is designed to comfortably host 30+ or so guests.

The decor is a celebration of Graham’s achievements, showcasing his impressive collection of NFL game jerseys (predominantly bearing the number #55), an array of trophies, and a prominent display of signed footballs.

   In 2021, Henck Design transformed the Old City, Philadelphia home of Eagles Safety Rodney McLeod into a luxurious home reminiscent of a high-end hotel. The Henck Design team added character to the new construction home with custom millwork on both the living room and dining room walls, as well as the addition of a floor-to-ceiling limestone fireplace in the great room. 

The home boasts a light and neutral color palette throughout, which is glamorized by the inclusion of reflective materials like antique mirror, glass, and brushed gold.

Fresh white countertops, a glass-top dining table, and gold-brushed light fixtures add to the high-end luxury feel for this pro-athlete’s entertainment spaces.

In the lower level of McLeod’s 5,200-square-foot home, the designers departed from the airy neutral style of the top floor to give the well known sports professional the man cave he deserves.

McLeod’s bottom-floor retreat is outfitted with a spectacularly masculine array of finishes such as leather, rustic wood, hammered metal inspired, silvery wallpaper.

Last but definitely not least is Henck Design’s 2018 redesign of Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins’ 6900-square-foot home in Northern Liberties. In order to honor the Jenkins’ previous home in New Orleans, the HD team created a home with distinct French influence and a color palette inspired by Mardi Gras. 

The casual dining room ties into the family room with dusty purple tones that contrast nicely with the dark wood tones Henck selected for flooring, stair treads, the french oak dining table and more. The contemporary crystal chandelier keeps the space feeling modern alongside the mix of eclectic and clean elements.

The interior of the Jenkins home is both modern and relaxed, with personalized touches that add character and reflect the family’s past and future affinity for New Orleans culture.

The primary suite also has dusty purple tones that subtly support modern black large format tile, a large scale tufted contemporary bed and other bold items curated by Henck Design.  The Northern Liberties home near Fishtown.

The primary suite has a flocked wall paper with several metallic colors that tie in with the custom shades and gray tufted bed. We used black rugs in multiple rooms to keep the looks cohesive. Black large format tile and a beautiful white carrera marble envelope the primary bathroom.

We hope you enjoyed kicking off the 2023 football season with this look back at our pro-athlete portfolio. It is our honor to create homes that reflect the individuality of these star athletes, and provide a haven for them away from the field.
