We were especially excited to see the newest New York Magazine in our mailbox on Monday — it's their Interiors Issue! Flipping through the six featured homes, we read the White One first. Totally over-the-top, this midtown apartment is nearly 100% high gloss white. The white quartz floor and lacquered ceiling are so bright-white "At night you can see the taxicabs in the ceiling — on the 39th floor!"...

Though the white-ness is intense, the pops of bright color help ground it (a little). Designed by architect Wayne Turett(there are additional pictures of the space here) and decorator Christopher Coleman, the space took three years to renovate to the owners' specifications. This story and the additional photos shouldn't be missed: Eleven TVs. A White Lacquered Ceiling. No Bookshelves.
