FEATURES
Full Houses

After years of spare, undernourished apartments, designers have rediscovered their appetites for calorie-rich interiors: When they're not stuffing their clients' homes with Venetian glass, Moroccan filigree lanterns, and African masks, they're indulging in passionate color, bold patterns, and plush fabrics. A look at five apartments that exemplify this new mix-and-match aesthetic adventurism, including a startlingly pink-and-cherry-red starter apartment for a single twentysomething, a banker's TriBeCa loft where the ebonized, lacquered surfaces vie with the views, and an eclectic East Village loft furnished by way of Tangier.

Seeing the Light

Transform your apartment from banal to bold with a translucent microwave, gold-and-silver-plated flatware, a velvet cube ottoman, and other inspired accoutrements.
