Yves St. Laurent's New York Pad, Estate of the Day
Today's estate comes to us from the Wall Street Journal's Private Properties section. It is the elegant apartment of Yves St. Laurent and his business partner Pierre Berge. The apartment is located in the swanky Pierre hotel which is home to that blockbuster $70 million listing. The apartment was decorated by the late Jed Johnson, whose client list included Mick Jagger and Richard Gere. The home has a combined living-dining room with hand-stenciled linen wall coverings, leather-lined mahogany dressing areas and Central Park views. St. Laurent and Berge bought the New York apartment in 1978 but haven't stayed there a lot recently. The home has two bedrooms each with custom leather-lined mahogany dressing areas and mahogany and marble ensuite baths. It was recently reduced to $7.75 million. After the jump, how a gentleman bathes.
