Lower level terrace. Note the metal lighting which mimic autumn gourds.
Upper level terrace. Much of the stonework in these terraces actually were once part of the New York City landscape.
The images here appeared in Vanity Fair magazine. The article ended this way:
The inspiring talent of Belgian designer Axel Vervoordt is on display inside this 6,800
penthouse atop the Greenwich Hotel -- owned by Robert Di Niro, Ira Drukier and other
partners -- in New York City. Vervoordt's earthy palette of earthy tones, refined taste,
and flair for for assembling a melange of antiques and art make the recently opened suite
one of the most desirable properties in town. Problem is: you'll never want to check out.
That's exactly how I feel about ending my Vervoordt posts. I don't want to leave and never tire of his "earthy tones and refined taste", but I must move on to other styles for my five fantasy houses. Before I leave Wabi though, I encourage you to check the Greenwich Hotel website. There, you can view videos of the men involved, the process itself and more views of the rooms. I tried to download it here but without success.
So till next time, when I plan on talking about my industrial side...
Stay warm, my friends,
