Throughout New York, many decorators and sellers turn to neutrals when getting ready to put a home on the market. This creates a clean palette that allows prospective buyers to better imagine their own possessions and style in the space. However, some listings have opted to put primary colors on proud display. Does this practice scare buyers away, or attract those with particularly niche tastes? Scroll through to find out.

Seeing Red
480-Park-Avenue-1 The Antionettes via Keller Williams
Talk about making a dramatic entrance!

The Hunchback of Brooklyn Heights
99-Clinton-Street-1 99 Clinton Street via The Corcoran Group
Quasimodo would feel right at home in Brooklyn's oldest church conversion. This loft residence features vaulted 23' ceilings, cathedral-like arches, stained-glass windows...all that's missing are the wise-cracking gargoyles from the Disney adaptation! See floor plan and full details here.

Work It
310-West-97th-Street-1 The Corona via Digs Realty Group
As some of us prepare for the possibility of having to work from home, this Upper West Side apartment comes with its own institutional home office built-in.

What Money Can't Buy

More is More

Kermit Had It Right
149-East-73rd-Street-1 149 East 73rd Street via Sotheby's

Hail and Well Met!

Walk on the Wild Side
40-Sutton-Place-1 40 Sutton Place via Elliman
The Beekman and Sutton Place enclave is known for being a private and sedate part of New York, but this bedroom's zebra print and wall of mirrors are the opposite. The 1970's called and they want it back. See floor plan and full details here.

Feeling Blue

Does the color of this library's walls, beams, and built-ins create a calming atmosphere, or give the feeling of trying to read under the sea? See floor plan and full details here.

Lofty Ambitions
