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.
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.
The condo uses the urban setting of downtown LA to inspire its interiors. The custom entertainment center and rug echo the patterns made by skyscrapers on display through the living room's huge windows.
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.
Emerald green velvet chairs pair with a live edge wood table in the dining room, creating a look that matches the grandeur of the LA skyscrapers outside the window. For more texture, a sheepskin rug is layered under the table.
