Inside Taylor Swift's Amazing NYC Penthouse (Photos)
The Front Door on Taylor's Move-In Day
Taylor Swift started her Country Music career living in Nashville. Since then, she's become one of the biggest names in Pop Music and made a move to New York City. Taylor Swift made the move back in March of 2014, and she's been hosting famous besties and birthday parties like crazy since then.
The View from Franklin Street, Tribeca
The condo cost her $19.95 Million, and she bought it from Lord of the Rings director, Peter Jackson. She purchased two side by side lofts, one of which brilliantly houses her security team. Together, the units are over 8,400 square feet including a 4,000 square foot terrace. Plus they have 12-foot high beamed ceilings, fireplaces, and wide planked wood floors. Are you ready to see inside? Her 155 Franklin St. Condo is in a 10-unit building in Tribeca, and it the picture of luxury for city dwellers.
Cooking with Best Friend, Karlie Kloss & Boyfriend, Calvin Harris
Gorgeous wide plank wood floors, marble countertops, and new stainless steel appliances make this beautiful urban kitchen. One of Taylor's creative hobbies outside of music? Baking. Decor to note: white cabinets, glass cabinet doors, and a vintage backsplash. When asked about their friendship, Taylor told Billboard, "Karlie and I met at the Victoria's Secret show," and the two have been hanging out and in the kitchen together ever since.

Unique ?Swifty? Living Room Decor
The vaulted ceilings and wood panelling gives the living room a cozy feel with all of the luxury that urban living can offer, including a fireplace. Decor to note: unique paintings, number lights, and an acoustic guitar... so Taylor. This photo comes from Taylor's Instagram account on a night spent with her friends. She revealed to Nancy O'Dell at ET, "I'm going to go hang out with my friends, and then I go home to the cats," she continued by saying, "Men get me in trouble."

The Great(est) Room
Taylor?s First NYC Christmas & Birthday Party Reveals Decorating Style
The gorgeous globe lighting, exposed brick, and wood posts and vaulted ceilings are really captured in this image. It's not wonder Swift is always having house guests, "I have friends around me all the time," she toldRolling Stone, "I love that I moved to New York. So in terms of being happy, I've never been closer to that." Decor to note: vintage spotlight, solid wood post, and red oriental style rugs. Not only does this photo from Taylor's Instagram give us a look into her Christmas decorating skills, but we see how well she puts together a holiday corner... Not an easy task
The Beautiful, Antique Staircase
The Upstairs Guest Bedroom
Decor to note: pristine wood treads and balusters, wood floors, antique light fixtures, fully exposed brick wall and iron headboard. You would think you're in a two-story home in Connecticut from the picture, but really, you're just viewing a picture of a rare, NYC apartment staircase. Actress and model, Jaime King, snapped a selfie at Taylor's birthday bash back in December, and with it we got a view into one of the guest bedrooms. Plus adorable actor Ansel Elgort can be spotted in the background.
The Library and Grand Piano
This room speaks for itself. The gorgeous piano, white bookshelves and city views from the window are just about perfect. Decor to note: marble fireplace, fluffy white chairs with decorative pillow, and more red rugs. Not to mention the adorable cats. Swift told Rolling Stone, "I asked around: I was like, 'Does two cats count as cats?' But then I thought, what imaginary guy's perspective am I thinking about this from? Someone is going to think I'm undateable for a lot of reasons before they think I'm undateable because I have two cats." These two appear all over Swift's social media channels, and sometimes they allow for us to have a glimpse into her decor details.
The Pool Room
Well decorated bookshelves, corner lamps and a classic pool table. This spot in Taylor's apartment is one of the most photographed on hers and her friend's social media platforms. In an interview with Rolling Stone, she showed her interviewer around and said, "Here's my pool table that always has cat hair on it. That's my skylight." She bumps into a doorway. "That's a door that I walk into."
Hosting Celebrities in Style
Decor to note: the golden backdrop draped over her living room wall, birthday cake holders, wooden table, and white walled foyer. Taylor's been known to hang out with her friends, but her 25th birthday at her new NYC penthouse got a ton of social media coverage from its famous guests. People like Jay-Z, Beyonce, Justin Timberlake, Sam Smith, and the Haim sisters showed up. It's almost like Taylor invited the entire music industry to her new place to celebrate .
