Exuberant Interiors by Sasha Bikoff Beckon at This Upper East Side Apartment Asking $5M
Light, airy, and clean interiors are so on trend, but well put together color and pattern never goes out of style. Daring decor is timeless, appreciated no matter the decade. An apartment that showcases this is up for sale in the Upper East Side, Manhattan’s most classically posh neighborhood. With interiors by Sasha Bikoff, the sophisticated spread is bold and exuberant and listed for $4.995 million.
From the black and white foyer to the kitchen punctuated with cherry red, each space has potential to make you smile. According to Lonny, which featured the pad before it was available to buy, Bikoff gold-leafed the living room ceiling for a brilliant, shimmering effect. Thanks to the groovy ice cream artwork, floral rug, and curving sofa with a brass base, this central gathering point subtly embraces an almost Studio 54-esque flair.
While the fab furnishings and artwork won’t stay, many elements will. The 1,853-square-foot apartment comes with white oak herringbone flooring with a custom stain and marble flooring in the foyer. In the colorful kitchen, you’ll find custom millwork cabinetry, and Calacatta marble countertops, flooring, and backsplashes. Bickoff’s bold hues are also yours to keep, from the blushing primary bathroom to the sultry navy-on-navy bedroom. In total, there are three bedrooms to spread out across, each bringing a different palette and zest.
Located in the Touraine, a full-service building near Central Park, this pad is ripe for prime Upper East Side living. It’s easy to imagine icons like Judy Garland or Marilyn Monroe wanting to call it home with the level of tailored glamour it achieves.
Michelle Griffith of Douglas Elliman has the listing, which holds a 421-A tax abatement until 2023.
