Designed as an artist’s cooperative apartment building and the largest “studio” building in the city, the Hotel Des Artistes at 1 West 67th Street on the Upper West Side is one of NYC’s most famous and illustrious buildings. As one of a constellation of style stars in Ari Seth Cohen’s “Advanced Style” universe, former model, artist and muse to fashionistas of all ages Beatrix Ost is beloved for her perfect balance of creativity, confidence and cool. In a rare confluence of New York City fabulousness, the apartment Ost has shared with her husband, Ludwig Kuttner, since 2006 is on the market for $4 million–and the offbeat but ridiculously stylish space is every bit what we’d expect.

6sqft’s series “My sqft” checks out the homes of New Yorkers across all the boroughs. Our latest interior adventure brings us to designer Stella Rose’s bubblegum pink Bushwick apartment. Want to see your home featured here? Get in touch!

“Why not make your living space look like a party every day?” says fashion designer, stylist, and model Stella Rose Saint Clair. And that’s exactly what she did in her unapologetically pink Bushwick apartment. In fact, she’s painted every NYC apartment she’s lived in this same hue because it makes her feel “optimistic, rebellious, wacky.” When asked to sum up her fun and festive aesthetic, she explained, “I love over-the-top vintage interiors and the retro obsession around pink for household decorating. I am also a sucker for tropical plants and party supplies.”

From the Rococo sofa she found on Craigslist and bought from an eccentric divorcée on Staten Island to the collection of vintage food packaging in the kitchen, everything in Stella’s apartment has a story, many of which will make you laugh. But behind the giggles and bubblegum walls, Stella is not afraid to get real–“I don’t have my shit together, and I’m okay with it.”–and take a serious look at how obstacles in her life, such as being bullied as a teen, have shaped her into the creative force she is today. Ahead, take a tour of Stella’s one-of-a-kind apartment and get to know her a bit better.

Cool Listings, Historic Homes, Interiors, Park Slope

Even in a neighborhood of grand and spectacular homes, 108 8th Avenue is a standout. The Park Slope townhouse has the scale and level of stunning historic detail that is, as the listing boasts, rarely found in a private home. It is also quietly possessed of  21st-century luxuries like central air and meticulously tended outdoor spaces, making it an even rarer gem that’s now on the market for the first time in decades, asking $$8.8 million. Built in 1900, this limestone-clad mansion has a wealth of historic details like filigreed mahogany woodwork, original wood floors, delicately carved mantels and stained glass from world-renowned artists. Martin Scorcese’s “The Age of Innocence” and HBO’s “Boardwalk Empire” have made use of this opulent home to capture the essence of gracious living from a bygone era.

Now, Fifteen Hudson Yards has announced that that Neiman Marcus fashion director Ken Downing has designed and styled the interiors for a new model home at the 88-story luxury condominium. Furthering the connection between the upper-crust department store and the development’s high-end aspirations is a freshly-launched Neiman Marcus microsite that will allow people to purchase select items in the residence.

This Nolita loft is open, airy, and spans an impressive 1,800 square feet. The design is spot-on, too, complementing the lofty bones of the apartment that include vaulted, barrel ceilings and exposed brick. The building, 40 Great Jones Street, is believed to be built in the late 1800s. But everything here is thoroughly modern, from the flexible great room to the glass-panelled master bedroom.

On the Hudson River in Athens, N.Y., the grounds of this 1823 Greek Revival manor touch the water’s edge, with 350 feet of rare riparian (riverbank) rights included. In pristine condition and surrounded by park-like grounds and gardens, this fine example of timeless architecture, asking $1.7 million, offers a chance to remember a past era in a home equipped for modern living (h/t CIRCA).

Cool Listings, Interiors, Lower East Side

This 1,400-square-foot open loft space is located in the heart of the historic, iconic and fun Lower East Side at the corner of Eldridge and Rivington Streets at 193 Eldridge Street; the neighborhood was, a couple of decades ago, a relative bargain, rent-wise, when it was a diverse and low-key stomping ground for downtown rockers and punks. A complicated evolution of New York City’s neighborhoods means the area now counts itself among downtown Manhattan’s chicest and priciest, and this narrow but sunny third-floor walk-up loft above a former dance hall, with one existing bedroom area, is a condominium that’s asking $6,250 a month in rent.
