This new townhouse on the posh upper east side of New York is truly green…not in color but in construction with its environmentally correct LEED certification.
(Aside admission: uhhhhh…I didn’t know what LEED was until I just looked it up…here’s the definition from wikipedia…”Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) is an internationally recognized green building certification system, providing third-party verification that a building or community was designed and built using strategies intended to improve performance in metrics such as energy savings, water efficiency, CO2 emissions reduction, improved indoor environmental quality, and stewardship of resources and sensitivity to their impacts”…good to know…some of us more clueless folks learn something new every day…who knew…right?).
Anyhooooooo…it is 5 bedrooms, 3 baths, 2 powder rooms, a wine cellar, entertainment room, 3 outdoor spaces and 3 stories. Wow. Ultra modern living (with a few soft edges) right in the middle of Manhattan.
I like the foyer with the round loft opening to the second floor balcony/landing, the wood floors, the open kitchen (even though I always say I do not prefer open kitchens) and all of the private outdoor space right in the middle of New York. Clearly this is staged for selling…a little cold and impersonal…but if I got my hands on it to decorate, I could warm it up and make it a wonderful home!
Is this home your “green” cup of tea?
P.S. Reminder about the potential for a fab linen pillow giveaway…please join the COCOCOZY FACEBOOK PAGE and/or please suggest it to your friends. The minute we reach 2000 followers there, I will do a linen pillow giveaway again. Windsor Smith designed linen upholstered pillows! Yooo hoooo…
P.P.S. Also, please go to the COCOCOZY FACEBOOK PAGE today to find out what coveted item my dog ate…and please some advice on what to do with my pampered pooch who is literally eating me out of house and home! Leave a comment after you find out what he ate this time (hint this is the same 15lb dog who has gnawed through two sofas)…hmmm….perplexing!
