House Tour: A Modern Manhattan Penthouse
Okay, so this modern house tour that we’re about to take isn’t just anyone’s Manhattan penthouse, it’s Paris Hilton’s Manhattan penthouse. And from the looks of things, our beloved Paris Hilton has grown up. This modern penthouse is an elegant home, in a spacious and neutral palette. Let’s take a look:
The main room is so spacious and clean! Those huge windows let in natural light that brightens the space, giving it that open feeling we’re all seeking after. While the fireplace is a large focal point, it in no way detracts from the space or weighs it down. I love the neutral color palette too. It adds a grown up elegance don’t you think? And I spy a Nelson Coconut Chair!
A FLOS Mod 2097 Chandelier hangs over a long wooden table. I can’t get enough of mixing and matching chairs at the dining room table, and I really like the pairing of black Eames Armchairs with a Louis Ghost Chair at each head. A big mirror over a modern credenza helps to bounce back light into the space.
This black and white kitchen is sophisticated and modern. All of the cabinets have a shiny reflective surface that gives it a real crisp and clean feel.
Warm, soft, and inviting, this is the perfect place to come and stay after a long day of traveling. The space maintains the neutral palette that’s synonymous throughout the rest of the home, but translates it into a more casual and down to earth style.
This guest bedroom even has a little living area, so guests can take some time for themselves and really feel at home. The integration of a warm cowhide draped over the ottoman and the sheep skin draped over the seat of the chair adds texture and depth.
Going through the rest of this modern penthouse, the master bedroom is everything you’d think it would be. Soft, contemporary, luxurious. The neutral palette gives the room an elegance that’s grownup. A wall of billowy white curtains act are perfect for adding privacy and adding a soft elegance to the windows. I love that you can see a smoky Louis Ghost armchair peeking out in the reflection of the mirror, which I love how many mirrors are in this bedroom!
The master bath is luxurious in white marble. It’s elegant and simple, and talk about an expansive shower!
How amazing are the views up here? This deck looks like the perfect place for summer sunbathing, chat over a fresh cocktail with friends, or to throw an epic rooftop soiree.
