Hilary Swank’s Manhattan Apartment

For Hilary Swank bigger is not better, and her downtown Manhattan apartment reflects a sense of peace and comfort.  “I feel comforted in smaller spaces. They’re more nurturing,” the actress, who appears in the new holiday movie out this weekend titled New Year’s Eve.  For the comfort she craves she consulted designer Mark Zeff to create her Manhattan living space.  Above, living room decor from Calvin Klein Home, as is most of the apartment’s furnishings.  All photos: Simon Upton  Article: Elle Decor

Table and Chairs Calvin Klein Home.

Bedroom with furnishings from Calvin Klein Home, of course, and featuring vintage lamps and a painting by Carlos Vega.  Says designer Mark Zeff: “I wanted to create a place that would give her a sense of grace and harmony.”  I think he succeeded.  Hilary Swank’s Manhattan apartment is modest, stylish and chic.

Creative Loft Living

Decorating a huge open space need not be a headache filled challenge when you look at some creative loft living ideas.  This Manhattan loft is owned by NY based photographer Alexander Deutsch.  Love the simplicity, the metallic feel and color choices. For more on his inspiration see Loft Life Magazine.com

My favorite apartment is the loft. I love the openness, the free feeling of being in such a wide space. Here this converted loft apartment sports a clean white feel, with a sharp contrasting piece to catch the eye. Photo via Loftenberg.com.

If you are fortunate enough to find a loft with brick walls exposed, the decor options are creatively endless.  Love this creative loft design, the deep yet fresh color choices and the lighting ideas. Via Interior Magz

Here is a more intimate interior loft design. Fresh, soft, yet modern furnishings with high contrasting color choices for walls give this loft space a comfortable feel. Photo via Simping.com
