Solís Betancourt & Sherrill renovated and decorated the apartment, including the master suite. Vintage Seguso lamps from Lobel Modern flank the bed; Rubelli fabrics were used for the coverlet and for the vintage love seat from Paul Marra Design, the framed watercolor is by Sonia Delaunay, and the carpet is by Patterson Flynn Martin.

Rostagno collaborated with architects Robin Elmslie Osler and Ken Levenson on the renovation of the top two floors of the home, including the master suite. Mark Mennin sculptures hang above a Patricia Urquiola for B&B Italia bed dressed in RH linens and an Yves Delorme coverlet; the curtains are also by RH, the Murano-glass chandelier and rug are from ABC Carpet & Home, and the walls were painted in a decorative finish by Surface & Architecture Workshop.

Berkus replaced a glass-block wall with a glazed panel to open up a skylit guest room, where a French daybed from Pavilion Antiques now stands alongside a 1950s French table.

Berkus masked the awkward placement of two small, low windows with high-set blinds framed by long curtains; the airplane photograph is by Jeffrey Milstein from Tomas Maier.

Decorator Sandra Nunnerley revamped a candy-color New York bedroom with a restrained palette and suave tailoring. Blue, gray, and white soothe and refresh, while a crisp valance offsets the curtains; its inverted box pleats are repeated on the canopy and bed skirt.
