Open Concept Living Area: Glass-Encased Penthouse in Montreal, Quebec, Canada
The 2,700-square-foot penthouse features a flexible, open design for seamless transition from space to space. The living area flows into the bar area, so guests can simultaneously relax in either space.
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.
This chic outdoor space uses low-maintenance plants to create a small garden area. Bright yellow outdoor pillows and metal chairs add bold color to the space for a casual sitting area, and a wood wall adds privacy to this New York city hideaway.
Rooftop Deck With Large Cantilever Umbrellas Over Neutral Cushion Furniture and Patterned Floor
“To create this peaceful retreat above bustling Center City Philadelphia, we selected natural materials and finishes to bring softness and comfort to what had been a barren rooftop,” says designer Barbara Eberlein. “Teak furniture does not need to be stored indoors during the winter,” she notes, and “direct sunlight is mitigated with enormous cantilever umbrellas.” Get the same effect in your own city sanctuary with a single umbrella and a cushy all-weather armchair.
