Rental apartments don’t have to be boring and lack personality. In the case of this rental Manhattan pied-à-terre designer Martin Brudnizki of MBDS piled on the elegance and added a dose of chic with a huge tapestry (go big in a small space!), lots of art and a curtain to hide the ugly kitchen. This is all you need for a quick visit to the big city. (Photos: Nicole Franzen)
