{on the market: manhattan townhouse}



. . . shall always adore katie lee's ultra-chic four-story west village townhouse, famously decorated by nate berkus a million years ago, in 2006; first seen in domino magazine and still an all-time favourite, the 4000 sq ft home, which includes 3/4 bedrooms, 4 baths, 4 fireplaces, an elevator, a landscaped garden, matchbooked marble detailing, and antiqued gold-leafing, is now on the market, and it is always interesting to compare how the real estate listing shots, often taken wide angles, differ from the rich, more detailed shots published in magazines; and so, a glimpse . . .

Such a stunning home! It's cool to see the difference between real estate pictures and those done for publications. I think I prefer the dreamy quality and art direction of publications! ;) Nate Berkus did a beautiful job, I love Katie Lee. Hope we get to see her new space!

Everything is so clean, soft, and plush in this home. I forgot how much I loved it when I first viewed it in Domino. Her dining room, with the china and cookbooks mixed together, is impeccable. And I can't even discuss her boudoir! Would love to tour this house.

i loved this post! not only is it a stunning town home but it was really fun to see the comparison between real estate listings images and images that were shot for a magazine of the same space.

That gold headboard is by far my favorite piece ever. And since I have an obsession with chandeliers and classic vintage furniture the first two rooms are ideal!

Fantastic house, I think if they were ever to redo Breakfast At Tiffany's this would be the townhouse to do it in!
