The designers have done a fantastic job not only focusing the furniture so it can take advantage of these views, but they’ve sectioned off the living space with a L shaped couch and a low bookshelf. Both tips you can use in your own space!
White doesn’t have to be boring! The sleek white floors make you wonder where they end, and where the silky smooth countertops begin making the space feel open and airy.
What we love about this space is the shape of the rug, and how it mirrors the ceiling cut out above. You don’t need a dining room the size of a small tennis court to copy this great idea! Although, vaulted or higher ceilings may play better into this.
Talk about a statement piece! This open, and white space calls for something to draw your eye back in, and away from those million dollar views. Use a bold colored statement piece like they did here to center a room in your home.
Wood paneling doesn’t have to be a thing of the past! These sleek, warm wood panels are a modern twist on old-school luxury.
This home office hands down has one of the best (and maybe most distracting) views. But these built in shelves with a built in table maximize the space. Consider a fold out table from a built in shelving unit for your own home office to save some space.
Gray doesn’t have to be a cool color, and the designer of this penthouse suit knows all about that. The warm wood-tones play wonderfully off the warm grays in the rug, TV unit, and the chair, making this space clean and inviting.
Pocket doors are a great way to keep a space open, but still get the privacy you need. The designer has done that here for this home office — leaving the pocket door open to let more of that amazing natural light into the room. But the door can then easily be pulled out for much needed privacy.
This room is maximized to it’s full potential. The built in unit provides drawers, a TV stand and even a desk, leaving plenty of room for two large beds. Consider a wall unit in your space to maximize it.

The clean thin lines of this penthouse bookshelf are mirrored in this stunning chair. Tying in different elements of the room into one another subtly brings a unity to the space.
This penthouse kitchen may be white, but it’s anything but stark. What we love about the space is how the wallpaper flows from the dining room into the kitchen, giving the two separate spaces a sense of continuity. The kitchen also heavily ties in greens from the dining room with the potted herbs and table accents. Tie your separate spaces together with color.
You don’t have to be match-matchy. The rug in this penthouse kitchen is striped, and colored with peaches and maroon — a contrast to the greens in the rest of the space. But it really anchors the kitchen, and plays off the warm wooded island.
Hanging shelves are a great way to save space, and display some of your most beautiful kitchen appliances and silverware.

Persian rugs are all the rage right now, and this penthouse has taken this trend to new heights with this stunning faded blue rug.

Use this as inspiration to bring a twist to the old Persian rug in your own home.

And that stunning painting is leaned up against the wall and styled perfectly with books and other home items.
