Study in Pink: Betsy Johnson's Former Pink New York City Apartment

Betsy Johnson sold her very pink New York City penthouse 
apartment a while back but I think it's worth doing a post
on her over the top pink apartment.  I adore the yellow chairs
she uses in her dining room as shown in the photo above.
A very nice set of mid-century modern chairs if I must say
so myself.

The view from her penthouse apartment (listed at
1,660 square feet with a 1,000 square feet private 
deck.)  Original asking price was 3.6 million.

Betsy had very cleverly sectioned her bedroom area 
off with a black screen and pink chair and ottoman.

A different look at how she sectioned her bed from
the rest of the living space in her loft like apartment.
Love the huge pink rug she laid on the floor in this 
corner of the apartment.

A more pristine bathroom in whites.

All the floors in the apartment are ebony which 
really sets off the pink and other colors in the space.

I absolutely adore the hot pink chaise.  The black staircase 
leads up to the 1,000 square foot private deck up top.

A closer look at at the entrance to the kitchen from the dining area.

I love that she mixed something very industrial like
stainless steel finishes with pink.  It's not a combination
most people would think of but it works in an eclectic

To full size sofas facing each other with sheepskin
rugs makes for a very comfortable and luxurious
living area.

You can tell that Betsy not only loves pink but mid-century modern 
touches like the lamp and coffee table in the sitting area.

 At one point, Betsy had redecorated the apratment and
ELLE DECOR UK had featured her apartment in their magazine.

More pink!

 A Very cool portrait.

She went from pink to yellow at one point. Her apartment may be 
over the top but you have to give her credit for being bold in her
