In the home of the executive VP and chief retail creative officer for Ralph Lauren Home, Alfred Paredes, the signature RL look is brought to a Manhattan high rise with lots of wood and an all-neutral palette. With a timber ceiling and large glass doors with metal mullions in the living room, the apartment takes on the feeling of a rambling hacienda. The open air views and a lush patio extend the home’s high-country style outside, perfect for warm-weather entertaining. It’s incredibly striking how far from a New York apartment this apartment feels – the distinct architecture and open plan living space evoke the feeling of a welcoming, spacious home. Below, the dining room creates a central landing for the living room, with vintage Tolix chairs and a huge wrought-iron Spanish lantern above.
The living room has an especially cozy, collected feel. An African stool sits by a low-slung rolled arm sofa from Ralph Lauren Home, with a large vintage floor lamp extending overhead. Joining the living and dining areas is a large jute rug, a laid-back neutral backdrop for the two areas.

The stunning polished steel bathtub and black subway tiles create a sharp contrast that’s fresh but still classic. Like the kitchen, the black accent gives the room a contemporary edge that’s so timeless. How do you like this rustic take on a Manhattan apartment?
