Ok, those funky retro-Euro Smeg fridges in candy colors are cute pretty much always. But in tangerine? And the matching tangerine-striped vintage light fixture? Amazing. And that candy-orange paired with pale Tiffany-box blue? Yes, please.
This two-bedroom, two-bath floor-through at busy-but-convenient 132 West Houston Street in Greenwich Village is no bargain at $8.5K a month, but that’s no surprise given the prime downtown location where supermodels, students, tourists and fashionistas jostle day and night. It is, however, surprisingly chic (at least in pictures), with a minimalist vibe and design perfection in the details.
The apartment has been completely renovated; charming details like tin ceilings and wood-framed windows join modern conveniences like an in-unit washer-dryer. A south-facing kitchen and dining room adjoin a spacious living room for ample entertaining space. The chef’s kitchen has the aforementioned brilliant color details, plus plenty of space, seating and storage. Potted plants make it all feel that much more like home.
Both bedrooms are quiet and private, (or so says the listing) on the opposite end of the apartment. The master bedroom’s en suite bath has a deep soaking tub; the second bathroom features a steam shower. And of course the combo of trompe l’oeil floor tiles, subway tiles, gold fixtures, marble accents and grey door pretty much kills it.
This fully furnished rental is available short or long-term; situated above the festive Jamaican spot Miss Lillys and within minutes of all of Soho, Noho, Tribeca and the Villages, you’ll definitely have lots of colorful and pretty things to look at whether you stay in or go out!
