Actress Jordana Brewster has not let renting hold her back from outfitting her Manhattan apartment with expressive design. The apartment is accented with bright, vibrant colors in sleek geometric and modern shapes. Every piece of decor is deliberate. Nothing is wasted, creating a minimalist and artistic landscape.

For renters, this is a great source of inspiration on how to add your own unique flair to a space that your landlord won’t protest to. Jordana used large pieces of art and charming statement pieces to bring the blank canvas to life.

Enjoy this fun and colorful modern space.

Home Tour: Katie Holmes’ Modern NYC Rental

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.
