Ryan Rudd is on top of the world – or at least, that’s the way it feels inside his downtown Orlando condominium, located in an 18-story, Old Hollywood–inspired high-rise aptly dubbed the Star Tower. The unit, hidden high in the clouds, looks out onto a verdant expanse of trees. Pausing, taking it all in, it’s clear why Rudd – an attorney who’s lived in Orlando for over a decade – calls the space a “sanctuary.”
He and his fiancée, Natasha Romero, have lived in the Star Tower for two years, merging their shared love of fashion, color, pop art and modern design to create a space that’s at once soothing and stylish, sleek and soft, masculine and feminine. Contributing to that successful blend: a sophisticated selection of furnishings that reflect the couple’s taste for both classic and contemporary.

But when I think about it, there’s really no place I’d rather be than home.
