In the midst of New York’s gray and rainy weather, this apartment is sure to brighten your day. Located at 111 Fulton Street in the Financial District, it belongs to Stefan Pildes, a hula-hoop instructor and the president of Groovehoops, a performance troupe of hula-hoop entertainers. (He bought it in 2009 for a little over $1 million.) The 1,738-square-foot apartment already has good bones — eight-foot windows, 11-foot ceilings — but it’s been completely decked out with wallpaper, colorful furniture and art, and custom lighting.

As soon as you walk through the door this apartment is boasting serious personality. The foyer is lined with bookshelves and one of the most impressive hat collections ever.

The hat-lined foyer leads into this wide open living and dining area, complete with an open kitchen. A wall of windows looking south brings all the light into the apartment. Every piece of decor makes a statement, but nothing overwhelms this big, lofty space.

The two bedrooms don’t disappoint, either. (The listing suggests that the floorplan is flexible enough to carve out a third bedroom, probably from the living room.) The only windows in the apartment are located in the living room, so the interior decor helps keep things feeling bright.

One nice perk of this apartment are three bathrooms, two of which are located off the bedrooms. The third, a large bathroom right off the open kitchen, could potentially be converted into an extension of the kitchen, a utility room or storage space. Our only critique about all that bathroom space? They need more color! The rest of the apartment sets a high expectation for fun interior design.
