Experience bird's eye views of China's capital city in this 5,000 square foot, two-story penthouse. Light-filled rooms flow seamlessly together for the ultimate in modern urban living. Sleek wood and bamboo surfaces used throughout the space contribute to the streamlined aesthetic, while subtle touches of traditional Chinese decor lend a sense of history and place.
Interior designers Michael Adrian Hernandez and Joel Leizan chose shades of white, soft, creamy beige to enhance the elegance of marble flooring, minimal and beautiful wallpaper accents, custom millwork and architectural lighting.
Evenly spaced recessed can lights truly enhance the gold and metallic hues of this luxurious master bedroom. For additional lighting, four table lamps deliver focused task lighting around the bed and dressers. Plus, dark floor-to-ceiling draperies make it easy to shield the natural light from the window and quickly set the mood. "Think boutique hotel rooms with blackout curtains; augment with a myriad of light sources on dimmers, of course. It'll always feel like you're on vacation at home," says Jamie Laubhan-Oliver of D Home.
One of two master suites, this penthouse bedroom offers warm wood furnishings, plush brown carpet and balcony access. Floor-to-ceiling windows provide striking views of downtown Dallas both day and night.
This master bedroom, designed by Haddad Hakansson Design Studio, follows the sleek lines found in the rest of the home, yet here a more traditional design aesthetic is observable. The rich brown platform bed and bedding and the splash of color in the bed pillows anchor the room, while the large dark wood mirror and landscape art complement their effect.
Even the kids room offers breathtaking views of the Chicago city skyline. Designed for two boys, a contemporary, gray wood bunk bed adds functionality to the small space, and a stylish blue and white chevron rug grounds the room. A pair of bean bags provides a quaint area for reading and relaxing.
Like the rest of the home, the master suite boasts breathtaking views of the city with floor-to-ceiling windows. In the corner of the room, a tufted chaise offers a place to relax, read and enjoy the view. To get an even closer look of the city, a glass door leads to a small, glass-enclosed balcony.
A peaceful retreat, the master bedroom suite has dazzling views and appointments, a generous walk-in closet and a large master bathroom. Wraparound windows fill the space with light and the stunning New York City setting.
