A Celebrity's Glam Manhattan Home

If you like understated elegance, you'll love Ivanka Trump's glam Manhattan home. I came across her apartment some time ago in Elle Decor and have been smitten since. I love her style!

What do you think?


ED: What was the inspiration behind the ceramic tile that you used on the kitchen ceiling?
JK: Bill brought the tiles to us, and we immediately loved them. They're a classic feature, with a nod to New York, but the application to the barrel-vaulted ceilings and the iridescent finish gives them a reflective quality that makes the room glow.
ED: Why the medium-brown "mink" stain on the floor? Most floors these days are darker or lighter.
JK: It's just something that spoke to us. We liked that it's not typical, and it has a wonderful tonality and texture.
ED: Ivanka, how did you develop your appreciation for the kind of urban modernism the apartment embodies?
IT: When you grow up in New York, you become a student of the different period styles around you. Every neighborhood has its own design DNA that reflects the history of the city. Part of being successful in real estate is recognizing that each building is unique.
ED: Who chose the strong array of artworks?
IT: Our friend Alberto Mugrabi, who has an unbelievable collection. Jared walked him through the penthouse during construction. Alberto was really taken with the volumes of the spaces, and together they selected the pieces.
The master bedroom features a bed with a custom headboard by BDDW, a vintage Hans Wegner valet chair, a 19th-century chaise upholstered in a fabric by Rodarte for Knoll, and a side table by E.R. Butler; the artwork is by Carol Bove, and the rug is by ABC Carpet & Home.
