Sleek wood stairs fit with the clean, contemporary aesthetic in the crisp white landing. Sliding glass doors provide an uninterrupted view of the outdoors, and orange chairs add a vibrant dose of color.
Large windows offer a glimpse of the outdoors, creating a soothing backdrop for this stylish bedroom. The design is sleek and spare with only the bare necessities: a low-slung platform bed, shapely armchair and a few colorful accessories.

The vision for this home office was a contemporary, functional space with room for the children to sit and read.

Designer Vern Yip squeezes a lot of luxury into tight quarters in this Manhattan high-rise. To maximize the natural light streaming in from one lone window, Vern covered both the floor and main wall in Ann Sacks glass tile for its light-reflecting qualities. Because space is at a premium, the vanity features a slim, elliptical profile with 2 pivoting doors that swing out to provide plenty of storage for necessary toiletries.
Horizontal windows above the gray, built-in corner desk let in natural light and offer a beautiful treetop view. Drawers and cabinets offer plenty of storage space, keeping the desk surface clutter-free.
