Inside the theater, sapphire-blue velvet from Nomi covers reclining chairs. Linen-covered panels cleverly conceal speakers.

A PENTHOUSE EXTRAORDINAIRE
Steven M. Hefner

...from previous page
From the upper level, the elevator descends to the lobby of the home theater. "The lobby design is a replica of a late 18th-century, French apothecary shop," Hefner says.

After dinner, guests adjoum to the home theater, where they are treated to classic movies or music concerts. "The acoustics are fabulous not only in this room, but also throughout the home," the Osherows say.

A color scheme of soft green with raspberry and black accents sets the tone of the daughter's bedroom. At the foot of the bed, a bench opens into a twin bed.

In the guest suite, British Colonial styling establishes a mood of casual elegance.

The sumptuous master suite includes Sally's private office, where she tends to business at a Louis XV-style writing desk. French in design, the study is elegantly attired in soft pink, green and ivory hues, while the bedroom is luxuriously wrapped in shimmering ivory fabrics.

Both areas afford panoramic views. "I never tire of looking at the ocean," Sally says. Gazing at the blue sky, the Osherows delight in knowing that the sum of their equation is a penthouse extraordinaire. FD
