Richard Hallberg designed this penthouse apartment for a fictitious client — Gordon Gekko, infamous bachelor of the recent sequel, Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps for this years Designer Visions: Cinema Style.

"Integrity is the theme, says Hallberg. "So the apartment is about beautiful design and collecting quality." Taking the best at his disposal, the designer juxtaposes 18th and 21st-century furniture with modern art and Roman antiquities.

The apartment is all about contrast — playing black against white, with the occasional striking color added to dramatic effect. Gekko is an extreme character, so there was no need for subtlety. Hallberg left a number of clues around the home to make it clear who lives here and what he does for a living.
