Even the smallest bit of outdoor space can be one of the most covetable features of any Manhattan apartment. So how about over 1,600 square feet of lush, private outdoor space!? Well, that’s just preposterous . . . and the bee’s knees. This penthouse loft in Chelsea features one of the most spectacular rooftop terraces I’ve ever seen. And for a mere $4.5 million dollars, it could be ours.
How cool are these sculptures constructed from international bills? Canadian artist Kristi Malakoff skillfully folds, cuts, and pastes paper money from all over the world to create three-dimensional polygons. I’m envious of her talent and would just kill to have an oversized version for my bookshelf!
We’re stopping to smell the roses with this week’s reader requested DIY. Prada‘s spring jewelry collection, comprising of necklaces, bracelets, brooches and earrings featuring large resin flowers and crystals, is flawlessly retro and delightfully feminine. With the abundance of assorted resin cabochons and pear-shaped rhinestones available online, you’ll have a ball customizing your very own pair of danglers. Honestly!
