The SoHo home exudes the same whimsical and quirky design Rashid is famous for.

It's easy to spend lazy Sunday afternoons perusing glossies for creative inspiration from your favorite designers — besides, they are the masters of helping others live well. But what happens when an interior designer is ready to let go of their own home? 

[post_ads]In the case of Karim Rashid, dubbed as the most famous industrial designer in the Americas, you're given a glimpse inside a rare specimen of a space: One that dispels any notion that contemporary style (even that with an air of minimalism) must be devoid of color.

Rashid, who is behind designs ranging from Umbra's Oh Chair to the "Millennium" manhole covers for New York's sewers and the interiors of Philadelphia's Morimoto restaurant, just listed his Midtown West home for $4.75 million. The 4-bedroom, 4.5-bathroom home serves as a white canvas for his wildly colorful collection of pieces, which can be delivered fully or partially with the house, reports Curbed.
The quirky furniture includes a credenza Rashid created for BoConcept in 2012, a patterned couch that was part of a collection for Meritalia and a bed from the "Twee Collection.
"Beyond Rashid's splashes of color, the space relies on the typical desirable charms of a high-end Manhattan space, such as oversized windows, a landscaped terrace and year-round climate control. The master bathroom features Thassos marble flooring with radiant heating, and a cellar offers opportunity for a media room, according to the listing.

In a way, the home itself reflects the overarching process of a designer: Take something plain and make it beautiful. Strip the colorful pieces away from the space and it may look like another empty apartment, save for its more permanent pops of whimsy, like a neon green backsplash in the kitchen and a pink staircase.

That may have very well been the appeal for Rashid when he first purchased the home. Besides, every creative needs a blank slate to create upon, and for a designer, an all-white apartment is the perfect place to start.
