Oh! Holy! Hell! It's amazing and looks like him. The wood work alone makes it gorgeous before you add the furnishings. I hope he is able to enjoy it for many years. Can you imagine trying to baby proof that place? If it ever needed it, that is.

Wait a minute, how did they get pics of Gerry's actual apartement?

Seems odd that he would allow that info out there like that, is it really his place in NY?

If so then he must be going to be there alot if he has invested that much effort into it.

I think because Elvis R. {the designer} got permission to add them to his website because he has his works displayed from various clients that he decorates for on his website, I'm not sure though if this is how they were added

His website shows his work and he is really good :)

Just a question,did they ever get photos of the roof top garden online?

Elvis, the decorator/designer, updated his site here

From Gerry's recent interviews his house in L.A. isn't in Santa Monica, it abutts Griffith Park which puts it in the Hollywood Hills. That isn't near the current fires, but there were 3 or 4 fires in Griffith Park last year, and I think they were all set by the same person. No homes were lost, but it is still scary when fire is that close. I'm not sure if he was already in the house at that time. I'd love to know if his L.A. house is decorated in a similar theme as his Chelsea loft, or if he went in a completely different direction for it.

Who said he had a pinball machine in his living room? I thought

I heard him say he had an arcade room with a pinball

machine. Did I hear that wrong?

What are the chances we will get to see his CA home and his

finished NY home? I heard he had a designer working on his

NY home somewhere. I thought it was GREAT like it was.

He's a great designer, why would he need anyone else, except

to hunt the things he wants?

Love him absolutely,

:whome2:

Yes, Darlin,

YOU!!!!!!

What a cool little getaway in the middle of the crazy NYC streets!

Here is the link to the Esquire interview in July this year where the interviewer mentions he has a pinball machine and a pool table in his living room. I believe this was his LA home. The interviewer mentions that he didn't know who he was but alludes to never watching movies until he came to Cali. I think... He says "I send a quick text to my editor as I park the car: "Guy's got a nice house, that's for sure." The front door makes me feel as if I'm in Europe, where a door could be four hundred years old." Now deducing that you can't park a car at the front door of the penthouse, I'm thinking this was his LA home. I have seen the pics of the penthouse and don't see any pool table or pinball machine. Maybe he does have a game room in NY. I would be happy to volunteer to go to each house and check. I would report the news back ...... eventually....

Did Gerry pick the things in the appartment ? I didn't think he was that into design and I thought he'd have more browns and leather or suede. It's really nice but I just don't see him as roman baroque type of guy

Besides the articles mentioned in the previous posts which have mentions of his apartment decorating,

there's an article from June '07 here from the NY Times,

with Gerry quoted after shopping for his place...

and you can see the painting mentioned in the Gallery in several of the photos :D

To show you where my priorities are, the beauty of NYC loft living is hardwood floors and open space which means I see lots of room to dance and party in that main level living room area of Gerry's loft. Coming from a building family, new home construction, some of the construction choices puzzle me but that's the bane of converting older buildings so I notice stupid things like the one bathroom, the sink placement is strange. We don't know much about the LA house but I love the turret type tower at the very top of the house where that room appears to have windows all around. The view must be fabulous.

And even if he doesn't stay in LA as much right now, you never know where the next set of movies will bring him, real estate is always a good investment most of the time.

The pictures are nice but they look too stylish for me, they don't have any soul, I can't imagine Gerry in this place. It's too dark and really medieval for me, kind of Roman style. It reminded me of a nice hotel Colosseum in a German amusement park all done in the style of ancient Rome. It has a nice style and lots of beautiful decorations but looks impersonal. Again this is my opinion...

According to published interviews, Gerry was very involved in all the choices that went into his NY loft. There is a lot of 'old world' but there's also a lot of whimsy. You can get a sense of some very personal associations in some of the furnishings, too. (And not just chandeliers.)

Pictures inevitably distory perspective, lighting and color values, no matter how good the pics are. I like it, and like it even more because it is not just what's trendy but reflects a unique and individual design sense. Most of the photos were with natural light and before Gerry was actually living there. Now that he's made it his part-time home, I'm sure the warmth factor is just fine. :D

I would have to agree that while I find that wide open living/dining area great to entertain a large group of people and dancing all around on the hardwood floor, ah I can hear Lolitta toe nails click click clicking across that floor as well, imagine that Tom Cruise moment in Risky Business, doing the slide half dressed etc to your favourite rocking music.......from a female viewpoint, it is a little shall we say Spartan and not so cozy for perhaps more intimate company, bwah. Of course that would fit with the castle analogy. True castles are not cozy per se having seen a few like Dover Castle. However I suspect other areas are more cozy, ehem.

I don't think any of us know Gerry enough to say whether or not the apartment would reflect him. It obviously does, as has been pointed out that he was integral in the decorating of it. I think Gerry has great taste! Better than sports stuff all over the place! :lol:

I love the loft. I love how there's so much to look at and the castle/Mediterranean feel to it. I can also hear Lolita's toenails clicking on the floor. What a cute image. :D

Yes it certainly beats the [Canadian] flag curtains, sport memorabilia, beer can collection, large porn DVD/tape collection and posters of nude or near nude women all over the walls, not talking about a Rubens painting either, bachelor scenario....bwah. You'd better run and run quick if you run into that because that boy is still emotionally arrested at his college years.

I like that it gives us a reflection of Gerry, what he likes and chooses for himself and his own home. Whether or not it is my taste is irrelevant because I'm about 100% certain that he'll never be inviting me to live there nor will I be in the income bracket to purchase it if he ever decides to sell it one day. What I do love is the "Phantom" flair it has, it makes me feel as if he still has an emotional connection to that part, much like so many of his fans do. That may not be the case, maybe it was all about giving it an old world European feel and not at all about Phantom, but it allows me to think it could be Phantomesque.

I love the dark colors and openess. different types and styles of wood and leather material. the only part I don't like is the kitchen-i do love the openess though.

it feels like a mini castle with modern and old mixed together.

We women like large kitchens even if we don't cook in them, bwah.
