Even though Ms. Littman has always been attracted by the big city, her 75 years old husband is a Jersey-boy who lived on the same street for most of his life. He spends most of the time in New Jersey. The couple also has a beach house in Deal, N.J. where Mr. Littman likes to go. They each have their own style and they’re each happy in another place. However, this doesn’t mean they’re not happy together.

The couple bought this penthouse apartment for almost $4 million back in 2009. They spent almost two years renovating and transforming the apartment and they finally turned it into the minimalist dream home thy always wanted. As you can see, it’s not the typical apartment an old couple would have. It’s not rustic nor overly cozy. It’s a minimalist and modern. It’s probably the key to the couple’s young spirit. As for the colors, the apartment is mostly decorated with tones of gray, white and black, just what Ms. Littman prefers. However, she agreed to add some color.

The entrance features a long wall painted yellow and several small spots of color throughout the apartment. The living room is bright and spacious. It has been furnished with items from Ms. Littman’s furniture and sculpture collection. The penthouse apartment also includes two bedrooms, a kitchen and an office. They are all minimalist, modern and elegant.{found on nytimes}.
