Flaneur de la Ville

Country mouse, city mouse - we want to be in both worlds and to that end have finally found the place that will satisfy our more urban impulses. It's called a penthouse, but even being on the top floor it's still just an eight-story building. Instead we'll call it by its numerical name: #803.

Currently the interior colors are dismal, but that is superficial. That the furniture is oversized and unattractive isn't flattering to the spaces either, but the amount of space is perfect for our needs and wishes. A working fireplace will be appreciated when the chilling winds off the Sound are howling. The kitchen is superb with all-Viking appliances including a wine cooler - perfect for chilling San Pellegrino sparkling water. There are two terraces, and the expansive additional space that these outdoor areas imply is not apparent in these pictures. So... here are the before photographs (taken from the sale materials):

One wall in the entry wall will be Farrow & Ball Hague Blue

The master bedroom will be Farrow & Ball Manor House Gray
