Fancy Upper West Side Building Hires Its Own Creative Director
Ever felt that the seafoam green interior and moldy moldings of your Lower East Side walkup just don't "go" with the authentic door paint or vintage-scented elevator or occasional atmospheric shrieks and scufflings? Ah, if we lived at the Upper West Side's historic condo The Apthorp (residents have included Nora Ephron, Al Pacino, Cyndi Lauper, and Conan), things might be a little more aesthetically pleasing, or at least, for goodness sake, cohesive.
Via BrickUnderground, the building just announced its very own creative director, "entrusted with selecting colors, finishes, appointments and cabinetry for the landmark's public and private spaces including the four distinctive lobbies and dramatic model residence." Because God don't like ugly cabinetry.
This could be a fun job. For someone.
