Manhattan is usually known for its fashionable culture and highly active nightlife. New Yorkers can often become overwhelmed by this fast-paced lifestyle and may want a relaxing retreat in their living space. This Peaceful Reclaimed Penthouse is located in the heart of Manhattan, but it is full of organic style and a sense of tranquility.
Upon entering the penthouse, you first come across this beautiful spiral staircase. It is made out of steel and concrete, yet it is very sculptural and not overwhelming in this space. The steps appear to float up to the next floor. Since the railings are see-through, they do not block out the light coming from the windows. The fur rug on the floor adds a softer touch to this somewhat industrial look.
In a world of white-cabinet kitchens, these reclaimed barn wood cabinets really stand out! Their rustic color and texture is perfectly balanced with the modern cut and shape. The counter tops are made of concrete to match the staircase. They also used copper metal accents instead of the typical stainless steel, which goes perfectly with the reclaimed look. The honeycomb globe lights and old wooden stools really complete this look.
The Dining Room
The reclaimed barn wood cabinets were carried into the dining room as well for the shelving unit on the wall. The dining table comes from a tree with the “living edge” still visible for a more organic look and feel. This table balances the traditional benches with their blue upholstery and rivets. The reclaimed metal doors came from a factory and a desk hides behind the sliding reclaimed barn wood cabinet doors.
The Living Room
This sitting area is a beautiful place for a family to gather. The reclaimed barn wood was carried onto the wall here to make the room feel cozier. The designer also brought in the blue upholstery from the dining room to create a more cohesive look. The coffee table is similar to the dining table with its organic edge and natural look. The Edison bulb light fixture is a nice touch from above.
The Master Bedroom
This space is light and airy compared to the other rooms in the penthouse. This is due to the bright cork walls and white carpet, which create a peaceful and tranquil retreat from the busy streets of New York City. The headboard is made from another piece of reclaimed wood with an organic edge. The sofa and coffee table are more traditional pieces, but they nicely balance the organic headboard and side table.
The Master Bathroom
In the master bathroom, two natural stone sinks sit upon a marble countertop and reclaimed wood cabinets. The copper faucets are a unique shape and compliment the stone sinks very well. In the back of the bathroom, there is a large cedar bathtub, perfect for relaxing after a long day. The reclaimed wood panels in this area make the room feel more rustic. The clipboards on the wall are holding up positive messages to decorate the wall.
The Family Room
This area opens up to the penthouse terrace and really brings the outside in. The star of this room is the living wall behind the sofa. This wall is full of living plants that change as they grow. There is a water filtration system in the wall which keeps the plants alive. The sofa has deep cushions so it is perfect for relaxing or taking a nap. The blue accent color also continues in this room with the pillows.
