Trendhome: The Pink Palazzo Chupi

Any New Yorker who doesn’t know whose house this is has definitely at least stopped by it and stared. When artist and filmmaker Julian Schanbel imposed his magnificent building onto the West Village, it left its neighbors shocked. You would have no idea what to expect from the inside based on its pink Venetian exterior, but a look at its Triplex Penthouse, where Schnabel resides, cements its status as one of New York’s most unique and extraordinary homes. In a neighborhood of townhouses and slick contemporary architecture, the Palazzo Chupi has captivated me since it first burst onto the block in 2006.
