When Refinery 29 profiled the vibrant Chelsea home owned by Fab.com founder and eBay executive Brad Shellhammer, he revealed that he’s never met a color that he didn’t like and from the looks of his apartment, he’s not lying. The one-bedroom, two-bathroom home, which just hit the market for $2.2 million is a chock-full-o-colors and rightfully called one of the most colorful apartments ever seen.
Pastel pink walls grace the open living room where colorful furniture like the color-blocked dining cabinets as well as the blue and green chairs add even more hue to the space. It’s likely that the furniture isn’t included in the sale, but even with it, the space stuns with dark hardwood floors, high ceilings, and oversized windows with views of One World Trade center and the Manhattan skyline.
The chef’s kitchen is slightly more subdued with stainless steel appliances and countertops, sleek wood cabinets, and a lengthy island.
The master bedroom has black painted walls that is contrasted with a white ceiling and brought back to life thanks to the copious amount of light allowed through the large windows.A large walk-in closet is also on hand, along with a smaller storage space. The full bathroom also seems to function as a library since a wall of bookshelves allows for more books than some home libraries.
A fun tidbit: Shellhammer and his partner purchased the home back in 2012 for $1.695 million from his favorite author Michael Cunningham. Despite being outbid, Cunningham decided to sell the place to Shellhammer. He is now moving on from his vivacious abode for a place with more space. “I want something I’ll be comfortable in when I’m 50,” he told the New York Post.
