A formal dining room, within a four-story townhouse at 181 East 64th Street (yours for $25,000/month), is decorated with hand-painted murals by artist Nadia Walinksa.

A home with bare walls can feel a bit blah. What to do with all that empty space? You could spend a lot of time and money building an art collection, or you can turn the very walls into works of art. Here, five New York City homes with walls worth framing (and some that even are!).


The parlor at 163 East 64th Street, a townhouse with five bedrooms and eight bathrooms, includes a grand Louis XIV-style living room with nine panels inspired by the Fragonard Room at the Frick Collection.

This two-bedroom loft at 30 Bond Street (for rent at $12,000/month) features a bold, color-infused abstract mural in the second bedroom.

An original Keith Haring mural adorns the entry foyer of this 8,000-square-foot loft in the American Thread Building at 260 West Broadway (listed at $11.5 million) in Tribeca.


This seven-bedroom, six-and-a-half-bath co-op at 435 East 52nd Street (on the market for $18.5 million) boasts 18th century-inspired design, including a series of wall painting by Paris-born, Los Angeles-based artist Paulin Paris.
