Come into this penthouse in New York City. It's cozy, only 1100 square feet, but jam packed with style.
It's decorated in a way I associate with a classic New York style from the 1990's: White walls and furniture, with accents of wood case pieces, and a great mix of accessories. I love the zebra skin in the entrance hall.
The living room has white slip covered furniture. The room is layered with lots of brown and clear glass accent pieces. The huge wall of mirror behind the couch is framed beautifully.
There's a small dining area behind the living room sofa, and I spy zebra print on two of the dining chairs.
There is a large and elegant Venetian style glass chandelier that anchors the dual purpose room. More zebra print on a plate on the glass top coffee table. The little lamp shades on the chandeliers are very 1990's.
The window treatments seem to be simple blinds that are pulled all the way up to enjoy the view. There's a door out to a lush terrace.
The bedroom has a classic Billy Baldwin touch - the large Chinese screen behind the bed.
The bedroom seems to double as an office. I love the huge glass door bookcase with silver trophies and a small model sail boat on top. More zebra in here too!
White walls are replaced by this warm taupe color. And there's another door in here that leads to the terrace. Outdoor space like this is so luxurious in New York!
The garden on the penthouse terrace has a European feeling.
Linda Dano, decorated this wonderful place and recently sold it for 1.5 million. The new buyer loved the decor so much he bought everything down to the sheets and towels.
Linda is a former television soap opera star, and she wrote a decorating book in 1997.
I love this style of decorating. It doesn't look dated to me. And I love how exuberant Linda is - she doesn't hesitate to layer like crazy, and to use use zebra over and over again!
Linda Dano also has a line of home goods for sale on QVC. Unfortunately it doesn't reflect her fabulous sense of style. The merchandise looks like stuff you can get at your local TJ Maxx or other such outlets.
