Step outside this Boston penthouse apartment and feast your eyes on the private patio area that parallels its indoor loveliness. Simply designed patio furniture in gray metal, with bright blue upholstered cushions, is a comfortable addition to the space. The designers of Haddad Hakansson used large stone tiles for the floor and added a light blue stone wall for privacy. The blue colors used throughout is an outstanding choice to blend with the glass windows and outside environment.
It's kind of impossible to get over the views on display from each of the apartment's five bedrooms. Designed by acclaimed architect Tony Ingrao, the penthouse takes up two floors of New York's Baccarat Hotel.
The elegant, modern table in the dining area comfortably seats ten with its stylish, modern dining chairs. The lines of the table and chairs remain clean, drawing the eye across itself to the windows that showcase the New York City views below, but the edges of the table are rounded, which softens the modern design of the space, making it feel a bit more homey.
Since this San Francisco apartment has a skylight, you know it must be the penthouse. The living room, featured on HGTV's Million Dollar Rooms, features strong lines, sleek furniture and pops of bright colors.

The galley kitchen features warm wood cabinets and an earth-toned tile floor, contrasting with the cool tones of gray found throughout most of the penthouse. Sleek gray countertops serve as the connection between the kitchen and the rest of the apartment.

This Manhattan penthouse was fashioned by a previous owner out of storage rooms, a one bedroom apartment and unused space in the building’s decorative turret. Foley Fiore Architecture were tasked by the current owners to remodel the space to update the home to include ample communal living spaces comfortable for a young family with two teenage children. The living room includes a stylish, modern fireplace with a ceiling-mounted daybed swing.
The crux of this dramatic penthouse design is set on contrast, as a black and white color palette anchors the space. To help connect the lounge space to the rest of the home's elegant design, designers replaced the apartment's standard doors with custom, heavy doors that were painted black. They also added black casings around each of the doors to create a uniform look throughout the enfilade.
These homeowners wanted their apartment to be unique and glamorous, so designers brought in rich materials such as the luxurious, leather sofas and the gilt and mirror coffee table in the middle of the space. Their favorite feature in the space, though, is the custom installation of multiple pendant lights. Designers found the baubles on Ebay and had them installed as the final, glitzy touch to this fantastic penthouse design.
