In 'Things I Can't Afford" News, this uber famous New York apartment by Miles Redd, made famous on the cover of Elle Decor several years ago, is for sale! Bright colors, happy patterns, elegant contrasts, and sumptuous finishes - this three bedroom apartment is a primer on everything Mr. Redd is known for. Let's have a look!
The long, glossy cobalt foyer, with accents of red, and a cream and black marble floor has become a modern icon. Love a glamorous high gloss finish in a foyer sans windows. Also, that red door with brass nailheads was a revelation for me.
The elegant, super Anglo living room is old school New York with a glamorous flair. Although I am a sucker for a sisal, I am super glad they went classic Persian on the floor. And, of course, the pale blue silk lambrequins pretty much rocked our collective world, no? Also, how great is the green velvet sofa, the harbor view painting hung over antiqued mirrors, and those freaking ear mouldings around the bookcases?? I die.
The kitchen is at once graphic and traditional, with creamy cabinets, black granite countertops, and classic subway tile with thick grouting. I love how the punchy black stripes in the floor reflect the dark grout. And how fun are the Queen Anne style chairs popped into such a contemporary space? Obviously, the robin's egg blue on the lower half of the wall is gorgeous too.
Like most humans with eyeballs, I am sick to deathhhhhh of the Scalamandre zebras, particularly, in the red colorway, but, hey, this is still a good looking bathroom. The black floor is very jazzy.
The master bedroom is a symphony of delicate colors with its panels of hand painted, metallic wallpaper, and the soft, shimmering silk on the headboard, bedskirt, and window treatments. The pop of emerald velvet on the side chair seats is a terrific foil to the delicacy of the rest of the room. And pale blue crown and baseboard mouldings never hurt anyone.
And its all at 1010 Fifth Avenue, a gorgeous, classic prewar between 82nd and 83rd Street on the heart of the Upper East Side. Yes, it's $6.8 million, but that's actually not that bad for three bedrooms across the street from the Met. #newyorkthoughts
What a comfortable and livable looking home for a project that's so filled with old school glamour!
