Step inside Tower Residence 34, Spectacularly Designed by Kelly Behun Studio

The formal entrance gallery features clear views to the north and south. Gracious double doors open into the spectacular Great Room, which spans 37 feet and boasts floor-to-ceiling windows with perfectly centered views overlooking Central Park to the North

What I love about this apartment is its relationship to Central Park and how it feels as though it was magically dropped into the geographic center of Manhattan, with the city appearing to unfurl equally in all directions around you.

There are echoes of neighboring gilded roof in the living room’s custom chandelier, the green silk velvet on the sofa harmonized perfectly with the trees in the Park, and the dusty lavenders and greys that evoke both the sky and skyline that this home feels so much a part of.

The home office features Northern and Eastern views overlooking Central Park and cultural landmarks such as The Plaza Hotel

The building is a beautiful marriage of modern luxuries with quintessential old world details and with the interiors I sought to play off that and to take advantage of the absolutely stunning views.
