The New York Times takes us inside a pied-a-terre in the Osborne building on 57th Street. In the renovation of her two-bedroom apartment, novelist Elinor Lipman wanted to blend her family's modern taste with "the period flavor of the Osborne, which was built in 1883 to 1885."...

Neutral colors and lots of clean lines help the space appear modern. For more pictures of the interior and the Osborne's amazing marble lobby, see A 'Vacation' Place, on West 57th.
