Sleek and Modern in the Upper West Side

By • Aug 12, 2013

This sleek apartment, available for short-term rent, is located in the Upper West Side of Manhattan, New York.

The interior is modern and warm, with elements of black and red to connect each space to the rest.

Sleek and Modern in the Upper West Side:

“High notes

Tune your violin for concert pitch. You’ll compose the perfect score from the symphonic comforts of West 60th Street. Sleek and modern, this two bedroom, two-and-a-half bathroom apartment has notes of classical and contemporary décor aligned in perfect harmony. Need more inspiration? The musical masters of the New York Philharmonic are only a bow stroke away. When the orchestra rests at Lincoln Center, seek out your own coda among the charms of the Upper West Side. Wander through Central Park, jog along the Hudson River, or enjoy a meal at Michelin-starred Per Se. After a day in the percussive city, the pianissimo ambience of this home will restore you.

Yes, maestro

Your conductor works in finance, and enjoys the arts. On first violin is his wife, a self-proclaimed “free bird.” Melodic notes from India adorn their home.

Theme and variations

The first movement begins in tempo allegro: the living and dining room meld into a single, light-filled theme. Black leather couches, comfortable red lounge chairs and nesting white enamel end tables crescendo into a modernist composition that would please even Stravinsky. Drawings and sculptures from India accentuate the décor’s perfect pitch. Hum your own tune as you prepare dinner in the spacious kitchen, which has sleek stainless steel counters with accents of dark wood.

The second movement slows to a calming adagio pace. You don’t have to read sheet music to relax in the airy space of the master bedroom, with its dark wood floors, soothing gray walls and pizzicato splashes of colour. Soak solo in the marble bathtub or practice a tooth-brushing duet at the his-and-hers sinks in the master bathroom. The percussion section is located in the second bedroom, which has its own drum set (and a wall of floor-to-ceiling windows).

Sonata in the City

Ready to change time signatures? The orchestra of the city awaits. At Lincoln Center, the Philharmonic, the Metropolitan Opera, the New York City Ballet and Jazz at Lincoln Center are only measures away. If it’s visual stimulus you crave, try the Museum of Art and Design. When you’re ready for dinner, step out to Jean Georges or Per Se, or pick up an afternoon macaron at Bouchon Bakery.”
