Couture Carrie recently featured a snapshot of this lovely, jewel box of an apartment shown in Architectural Digest, and it reminded me of nothing so much as a three dimensional Mondrian. Care to live in a work of art?

Composition No. 10. 1939-42

Architect Lee F. Mindel designed the space, resplendent with "views and light."

And speaking of high-wire acts, here is a featured home in the NYTimes - a dreamscape set in Seattle's stratosphere. Fitting that children live there, since it strikes me as a the figment of a child's imagination - dwelling high above the city like the man in the moon - in a pyramid of glass and light. Who could resist that? Well, everything except the 35 story elevator ride...

How would you like to live on top of the world?

LOVE IT! Too modern for me, but I love it! Reminds me of a museum and an industrial structure also!
Great post, and thanks for sharing!

Very much - loved both of those articles too!

Love that you saw the Mondrian aspect of the first true. The second, is that real?!? Simply amazing, though I don't think I could live there, too much focus on how high up the space truly is!

I hate them all.... I used to live on the 57th floor and it was scary, plus I could never open the windows.

Something about being so high up freaks me out, and im not even scared of heights.

Great analogy of the first space - it's amazing how much it really is reminiscent!

The second one is like out of a fairy tale.


I died over that Seattle apartment when I saw it. I used to drive by it all the time and I don't know why I never thought about anyone living there.

The first space is spectacular! Would I choose to live there, probably not,it is just too perfect and leaves no space for one's personal touch.
the second one blew my mind, Love it!!! but slight problem...I have terrible fear of height!

I'll take either one - even though heights freak me out.
