On the Market: A Fashion Designer's Bright SoHo Home
A favorite of celebrities like Beyoncé, Leighton Meester, and First Lady Michelle Obama, Indian-born American fashion designer Naeem Khan undoubtedly has an eye for style; it's no surprise his impeccable taste translates to his interiors. We've just learned from Curbed that the designer has listed his SoHo home, a full-floor, two-bedroom, two-bath loft condo, for $9.4 million. While we may not be ponying up for the property, there's no reason we can't take the opportunity to ooh and ahh over its interior eye candy. Looking out over a charming tree-lined street, the home's open-plan kitchen, dining, and living room is the perfect space for entertaining. Khan's plush denim seating and tufted leather ottoman offer a casual and comfortable spot to unwind. And we must admit, we're envious of Khan's parrot painting by New York artist Hunt Slonem.
Let's continue on to the kitchen, shall we? Khan's soft, minty-green cabinets are a perfect example of the trend of exotic woods and veneers in the kitchen, which kitchen design specialist Karen Williams turned us onto in her expert tips. And we're smitten with his mix of wood and steel counter stools. Like to cook? Khan's dining table seats twelve hungry guests -- and how fun is that pop of yellow at the head of the table?
