Inside one of the luxury apartments

Entering the new luxury apartments at 414 Light Street, one would think they just stepped into a trendy New York high rise. The crushed velvet sofas, funky, floating birdcage chairs, and ornate gold art pieces are just a few of the unique touches in the main lobby to enhance that feeling.

Los Angeles-based interior designer Kari Whitman drew her inspiration for the building from her past experiences working on projects in Los Angeles and New York City. As her first time designing in Baltimore, she wanted to incorporate very modern and eclectic designs—think mixed metals and unusual fabric pairings—to bring a new twist to Charm City.

“I wanted to come in and change the look,” Whitman said. “It’s more New York, L.A., and Miami-looking. It’s very different for Baltimore. I wanted to do something that was kind of crazy. Ninety-five-percent of all the furniture and fixtures are custom-made from my designs.”

Similar to New York and Los Angeles, the lease-only apartments come with a heft monthly payment. A two-bedroom apartment starts at $3,300.

Whitman took us through some of her favorite spaces in the building and explained her design concepts:
