There's a definite chill in the air, but you likely wouldn't feel it in this elegant Murray Hill rental. The two-bedroom looks perpetually bright and sunny, thanks to its ivory color scheme, large windows, and high-floor spot in the building bringing in loads of natural light. The space is equipped with a gas fireplace to keep you cozy, but the true highlight is the solarium, where you can bask in the sun all year long. Plus, there's a huge terrace to visit when the weather is friendly.

Naturally, none of this comes cheap: the apartment is listed by Douglas Elliman for $8,995 per month

The spacious living area doesn't lose any sophistication for the coziness that its fireplace brings, and the glassed-in sitting area alongside it offers impressive city views, along with abundant sunshine. The adjacent kitchen offers more elegance, with its marble countertop and classic cabinetry; upscale fixtures and stainless steel appliances make it fully modern.  

The master bedroom offers access to both the terrace and the solarium, the latter through custom French doors; it also comes with an en-suite bath and a wall of closets, allowing you plenty of storage space. You'll find a walk-in closet in the second bedroom, as well as access to a second full bath. 

In the windowed master bath, you'll find striking, dark gray marble tile and a soaking tub, as well as additional, high-tech features like steam-free mirrors and a Toto toilet. The second bath also comes with marble tile, plus a walk-in shower with a custom seat. 

The solarium brings a bit of the outdoors in, and looks like an impressive spot to entertain during the cold months. Once it's warm, take the party outside to the huge terrace, from which you'll get vistas of city landmarks, including the Empire State Building and the river beyond. The building itself offers full-time doorman service, as well as a bike room and garage parking.
