Industrial designer/architect (and lover of all things pink and white) Karim Rashid once told 6sqft, “Color is life and for me, color is a way of dealing with and touching our emotions, our psyche, and our spiritual being,” and this philosophy is clearly on display in his personal Hell’s Kitchen home. If you’re a fan of this quirky aesthetic, you’re in luck; Curbed tells us that Rashid’s super-sleek townhouse-condo at The Dillon recently hit the market for $4.75 million.

The 2,767-square-foot spread is accessed through a private front courtyard, which opens to the main open living space with its 13-foot ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows that lead to a 700-square-foot terrace. Here, huge blank white walls serve as the perfect backdrop for Rashid’s art collection. As Curbed informs us, the credenza is from his 2012 line for BoConcept and the patterned couch from a 2008 collection with Meritalia.

In a 2014 New York Magazine feature on the home, Rashid said he and his wife Ivana looked at 63 different apartments before deciding on this one. He said he was specifically searching for three things: “high ceilings, daylight, and a different level for our child to sleep on.”

The open kitchen has custom cabinetry with under-cabinet lighting, a green-mirrored backsplash that Rashid added, honed white quartz counters, and high-end appliances. The pendant lights are his design for AXO and he created the dining table and chairs for BoConcept.

One bedroom is located on the entry level, and there’s a full bathroom in the basement so that this can be turned into a fifth bedroom or media room. Three bedrooms, including the master and all with en-suite bathrooms, are on the upper level. The bed seen above is from Rashid’s “Twee Collection.”

Previously Rashid lived in a giant Chelsea mansion, and he was spotted checking out a bright, open duplex in Williamsburg’s Oosten back in 2014.
