Forget the sprawling suburban mansion with tennis court and swimming poolfrom New York to Los Angeles, Miami to Chicago, the visionary home owners featured within these pages have created legendary, livable residences right in the heart of the city.
From an artists warren of studios in New York Citycrowned by a magnificent rooftop garden draped with wisteria arborsto a 16,000-square-foot chteau in Chicago with a master bedroom created from a former ballroom, these spaces are truly spectacular. They are also warm, friendly, and original. In short, they are real-life homesbut with many more rooms and amenities than most urban dwellings.
Majestic Metropolitan Living offers a tour through these unique and beautifully designed interiors. Their visionary owners have reinvented the original spaces, combining apartments or turning former warehouses and other nonresidential buildings into comfortable family homes. They include:
A bright, breezy French-country-style family home in a former Russian embassy that offers views of the San Francisco skyline and an indoor basketball court for the children
A tony penthouse apartment in Miami with more than 4,000 square feet of terrace space and a pool 500 feet in the sky
A former hat factory in downtown Manhattan, now a space-age family home where the three children hold rock-band practice
Decorated by some of the top designers and architects today, from Thomas OBrien to David Easton, Matt Baird to Daniel Romualdez, and with artistic owners like Loree Rodkin, Denise Rich, and Izhar Patkin, these spaces brim with ideas that can be translated for interiors of any size. Majestic Metropolitan Living is a visual feast for anyone who has ever dreamed of creating an inventive, beautiful, and personal oasis in the city.
