Actress and lifestyle trendsetter Gwyneth Paltrow placed her Tribeca apartment on the market back in March; however, it’s only recently that Paltrow published a ‘tour’ of the still unsold apartment on her lifestyle website Goop. The apartment, which is the work of design studio Roman and Williams, is described as a “pale, dreamy cloud.” At the time, the firm was best known for darker, richer palettes, but Paltrow convinced them to try something light and airy, according to Robin Standefer, principal at Roman and Williams Buildings and Interior. “Gwyneth saw how we could instead channel this ethereal palette: light delicate whites, palest lavenders, grays, silvers, embroidery details.”
The apartment features swaths of cool marble, making it a breezy place to relax on a hot New York City summer day. A swing in the living room further contributes to this ‘breezy’ aesthetic. Paltrow wanted something playful that she and her children could lounge on together; Roman and Williams answer was an elegant swing made out of an antique Indian door and topped with pale silk cushions.
Another unusual element of the apartment is a massive bed, so large that the sheets for it needed to be custom made. Paltrow felt it was important to have a communal bed that all family members, pets included, could sit together on.
Currently the Tribeca apartment is on the market for $13 million.
