Obviously love some of the furniture, e.g., bench in hallway, wall-mounted origami light fixture in bathroom. The coolest rooms for me are the orange den (very innovative yet inviting) and the not-pink kid's room with daybed right across from desk. The rest seems disjointed with no focal point, and I'd be too nervous to live in it without mussing up the "lines". 5000 square feet of living space in Manhattan is ridonkulous and Mid C Frank is right, this is Architectural Digest It's too cruel for Apt Therapy.

Having just moved into a new space myself, I totally appreciate the Novogratz' refinements. It is so hard to see the forest through the tress, especially with regard to something as personal as your own home. And damned if they do, damned if they don't. Some of the refinements might seem simple, obvious and "cheap" (organizing books on shelves) but as we all know, we lose objectivity in assessing our own space. Whenever I've serendipitously finessed some part of my space, I will float on that for weeks, euphoric to have lived in a space for weeks/months/years but to see it again for the first time. I was impressed with the restraint of this recent Novogratz redesign, and yet their choices still helped liven and gel the different rooms.
