    Default A Penthouse in Shanghai


    Marcel Lam for The New York Times
    The loftlike apartment of Bradford Nichols, a 38-year-old video game executive, is in a six-story Art Nouveau-style building.

    If 'Bradford' is a guy, then I'd say it's quite feminine for a guy's pad.

    Male or female aside, this place is beautiful. Not sure if there's too much white, but I love the decorator's taste.

    They photographed it well and photoshoped real shiny floors. But this is a shoebox in white with the cheapest, lead-laced interior possible.

    I agree! The only thing I like is the arched doorway.

    LOVE this. New furniture and paint it crazy colors ( not a fan of all white ).

    overall it's too girlie and frou-frou for me but i really like the place itself, especially the wood floors and the molding. i really like the touches of yellow and grey (that's always been one of my favourite colour combos) and i'm also a fan of the lucite chairs in the dining room.
    hate the birdcage, 'curly' furniture like the armoire, dresser, vanity and the table the cage is on, etc. also, those chandeliers suck. that space is calling for some cool, modern lamps.
    definitely has a lot of potential though.

    I think the woman on the couch is Bradford, there's also a picture on the bed-side table that looks like an older black woman.

    I like the furry/feathery chandelier over the bed.

    I don''t know if she really fucked the board though. Maybe just put the tip in. -Mrs. Dark

    Love the floors and the arched doorway. The yellow couch is quite pretty too. The rest is too stark for me.

    Overall, this is a really nice space. It IS a little too foo-foo with all the white and the pastels; I wonder if I'd be able to relax here the way it's currently decorated. It has all the space I need though.

    I think it's pretty but I'd never want to live in there.
