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.
Night or day, this urban living room always has an incredible view. The white leather furniture mimics the white of the skyscrapers outside the window and makes a nice contrast with the dark wood floors.
Keeping a neutral palette gives this bedroom design an air of sophistication and victorian class. The wall hangings behind the bed were displayed at the same elevation as the armoire; window treatments to the ceiling were used at the same height to reduce the skyscraper effect. The bed linens and tufted headboard add pleasing texture and depth to the design.
This great room features a glass wall that offers sweeping lake views. Instead of using steel as a structural support, the wall is supported by stacked glass, similar to an urban skyscraper. An automated cabinet above the fireplace opens at the click of a button to reveal the TV. Meanwhile, ceiling beams and warm wood finishes give a nod to the home's Mediterranean design.
This open plan living and dining area takes full advantage of its big city views, courtesy of a floor-to-ceiling window along one wall. The clean, simple lines of the furnishings and art echo the skyscrapers.
