At The Apthorp

While reading the Bergdorf Goodman fall “magalogue” this weekend,  I fell in love with all sorts of accessories and clothes…this was to be expected.  However, I was pleasantly taken off guard when I came across an ad for The Apthorp, a famous New York City landmark building on the upper west side.  Known for it’s unique courtyard and other European sensibilities, I was curious to see how this building was re-imagined and re-invented by designer Stephen Sills.  What I found on the building’s site did not disappoint, and now I’m coveting an apartment in this building right along with all of my other Bergdorf finds!

  4. It is stunning. When I lived on the UWS, I used to pass by this building all the time. How I miss NYC!

  5. All right, this is my dream home. I'll stop looking anywhere else. Seriously, all the lines and use of space makes me swoon and I can easily imagine myself throwing parties or relaxing in that beautiful place.

    Too funny. I was going to blog these last week! I actually toured the building when it was empty before the conversion to condos. Its IN-SANE.

    Ok, you got me with the Saarinen table in the beautifully lit white kitchen. Ahhhh! I'm sure Bergdorf's delivers. I stayed at a hotel in downtown Dallas where Neiman Marcus was on speed dial ahead of room service. Unfortunately, my husband wouldn't let me go near that phone!
