Walk of the day
I hadn’t expected this, but maybe this week is real estate week in the Hoddle. There is another ad that piques interest, mainly because a footballer announces it: the ex-American international Mix Diskerud (currently at Omonia in Cyprus) is looking for a buyer for his New York apartment.
I obviously didn’t see what the apartment looked like until Diskerud renovated it and put it on the market, but I think the renovation is a job well done. I think it’s a bit lacking in color right now, although I don’t necessarily disagree with the aesthetic choices made here. Keeping things neutral is probably the best way to sell the place, and new residents can add color through the furnishings.
I spent enough time looking through Architectural summaryIt’s Instagram to find out I love the idea of colorful kitchen cabinets and think it could have been fun, but I’m not sure if that was an option for Diskerud. It’s also something that is completely tied to particular taste and space – Kirsten Dunst’s purple cabinets look gorgeous in her kitchen, but they sure don’t work here.
The white cabinets and countertop have a classic, clean look, as does the white bathroom vanity. It provides a solid foundation for any future buyer and opens it up to people with very different tastes.
I have no idea how much it costs, but I guess you can always ask! (I also hope he works with a professional and doesn’t just list the apartment on Twitter. I feel like it might be more difficult to sell that way.)
tl; dr: Mix Diskerud sells his New York apartment.
