Look Inside A Millennial Pink NYC Apartment That Costs $30K Per Month To Rent

An apartment on the Upper West Side has hit the New York rental market for a steep $30,000 a month, per the Triplemint listing. The main appeal of this apartment, though, is the inside. It was designed by Keith Baltimore, according to New York Post, of the award-winning design firm Baltimore Design Center. Baltimore made the bold choice to center the apartment around a bright pink color schematic. Listing agent Shane Boyle said the owner commissioned Baltimore and the bold color pallet to bring character and imagination into the rental property and particularly appreciates the romantic, whimsical feel the pink conveys for potential residents.

The apartment isn't the only thing going into the high rent, though. Located at 251 West 76th Street, the apartment building is found in the stunning West End-Collegiate Historic District and is only a block away from Riverside Park and a half-mile away from Central Park and the Museum of Natural History. There are also multiple dining, shopping, and nightlife options within immediate access of the building. As a bonus, it's close to most major public transportation options.

A look at the Upper West Side apartment

The Manhattan apartment is 3,000 square feet, with two (can be turned into three) bedrooms, three full bathrooms, and one half bathroom, according to the Triplemint listing. While the interior renovations are recent, the building itself was built in 1889. The exterior of the brownstone is described as having Queen Anne and Romanesque architecture and detailing and is a rich, almost terracotta shade.

The building is five stories, but this rental includes three floors — the lower level, the garden level, and the parlor level. There is a terrace on the parlor level, which looks over the downstairs garden. The garden, located on the garden level, has sleek black privacy fencing, luxurious quartzite tiling, a marble fountain the shape of a lotus flower, as well as surround sound speakers, and plenty of lighting for enjoying an evening on the patio. There is also a Juliet balcony on the garden level and private access to the garden through the master suite.

Inside the high end Manhattan residence

According to the Triplemint floorplans, the home is accessed by a walk-up on the parlor floor/top level of the home. The front entrance opens to a hallway with the dining room on the left, a closet and half bathroom on the right, and the kitchen, living room, and media room down the hallway in a beautiful open floor plan.

The dining room, and the rest of the apartment, have a gray-tinted wood floor with a herringbone pattern and, of course, pink walls. The dining room actually only has pink crown molding that carries onto the ceiling and gray walls. Instead, the furniture — dining chairs, rug, curtains, etc. — is found in varying shades of bright to light pink. The 10-person dining table sits underneath two glass disco ball-shaped light fixtures and next to two 10-foot tall mirrored china cabinets and a marble fireplace.

The bathroom across the hall is certainly another unique aspect of the home. The wallpaper is black with bright floral motifs and strips of velvet, the Triplemint listing stating it's a Christian Lacroix design. The sink is also black with gold hardware and a hammered gold basin.

The pink isn't just painted around the home but installed into the architecture of the apartment, with the kitchen having a stunning pink quartz island. The rest of the kitchen is a somewhat worn shade of gray, with cabinets running from the floor to the 12-foot tall ceilings — there is certainly no shortage of storage in this Upper West Side apartment. The gray is accented by a gold backsplash, along with matching gold hardware on the black appliances.

The most iconic room in the home, though, is the living room. Baby pink walls are finished with thick molding, adding a dramatic lip to the ceiling. Even the fireplace, with all its ornate carvings, is painted pink with pink tiling. The listing states that the windows themselves are new, allowing you to enjoy the historical building with modern insulation.
