For a man who built his career entirely around the business of identifying, matching, and communicating color, the former Pantone chairman Lawrence Herbert opted for a surprisingly demure color palette in his Upper East Side apartment at 788 Park Avenue. As Women's Wear Daily reports, Herbert put the exclusive Rosario Candela–designed co-op building on the market this past summer for over $39 million after purchasing the home back in the '90s.
Save for pops of color in the form of a statement chair, curtain, or throw pillow, Herbert's 17-bedroom home sticks to a mostly neutral color palette with wooden accents. Designed by interior architect Peter Marino, the iconic Park Avenue residence is what you'd imagine when you think of a classic Upper East Side home. Black-and-white marble floors panel the grand entrance, elaborate crown moldings line the ceilings, and frilly curtains punctuate the master bedroom.
