Even if living in a busy cosmopolitan city such as New York isn't for you, there's always interest in how people live within these active and exciting places. Arguably, it's within the homes of the rich and famous that really gets us captivated by the lifestyle.
Set amongst the forest of skyscrapers in New York is a penthouse apartment that is almost incomparable to anything we have seen on homify. Formed by combining two smaller apartments, the brand new apartment displays the same innovation and trend setting that the

The architects have marked their signature design style by their particular use of timber, which is prominent all throughout the home. We love the interplay between the darkly shaded timber of the staircase base and the lighter stain of the vertical slates used for the barrier.
In a house of bold and creative design; it could be within the bedroom that this is the most expressive. Immediately drawing the attention is the jungle-themed print feature wall with its lush and colourful animation.
