I enjoy looking at real estate. The view into the dwelling of another, is oh-so telling. It speaks to ones design sensibilities, values and outlook. When I learned that Anderson Cooper recently sold his home in the fashion district of NYC, I couldn’t help but take a peek. Of course I was not disappointed, as the space is as elegant and hip as one would expect of the debonair gentleman. Sleek, modern and stylish, this former manufacturing space is now a lovely 2 bedroom and 2-1/2 bath home. Simple contrast used within a minimal palette, enhances the available light and the rooms feel larger. Material choices such as stainless steel, and wide plank flooring play on the building’s roots in manufacturing. Yet, the use of wood creates a warmth within the space, and it is comfortable and inviting. I can’t wait to see the results of his next design project, a restored NYC Firehouse, scheduled to wrap up soon.
