Actress Katie Holmes has been renting a stunning modern penthouse in New York City’s Chelsea neighborhood. The three-bedroom, two-bath condo offers plenty of space for her and her daughter and isn’t short on amenities, either. Perhaps the most breathtaking things about the home, however, are the amazing views of the city, including the World Trade Center, Empire State Building, and Chrysler Building.
What I love about this condo’s decor is the mix of modern architecture with contemporary design. It strikes a perfect balance between the two for a sleek, luxurious atmosphere. The palette has a great contrast using charcoal, grey, and rich wood tones against white walls. Not to mention, all the great texture at work.
This home tour is a beautiful example of mixing styles to create a unique, upscale vibe.
A wood accent wall in the entryway provides depth to the open floor plan.
A floating staircase increases the floor space and appeals to the modern vibe of the condo.
The texture on the fireplace provides another great visual element that suits the city views outside.
Grey kitchen cabinets mimic the fireplace facade for a sleek, modern appeal.
This bathroom is a mixture of classic (with subway title walls) and modern (the streamlined vanity).
Built-in cabinets provide plenty of storage in one of the bedrooms.
A murphy bed is perfect for the kids room, which will allow for floor space for playing when it’s not bed time.
A glass shower in the master bathroom makes the space feel large and creates a stunning effect with the dark grey tile.
Wood paneling is continued into the master bedroom for a warm, rich look.
Nothing beats the views outside, especially from the huge terrace overlooking the city.
This penthouse is perfectly suited to the city in which it resides.
