Last year, designer Karl Lagerfeld listed his 50 Gramercy Park North apartment for $6.5 million, then dropped the price by over $1 million, and finally took it off the market. Now, the three-bedroom apartment, which Lagerfeld purchased in 2006, is back on the market for $5.2 million, according to Curbed.

Get amped up for pool season by ordering one of these patterns in linen and commissioning a killer poolside caftan, or simply purchase one of the new Pool Collection coiled baskets to use as the perfect catchall for keys, sunblock, and sunglasses poolside.

I'm often momentarily swayed by a gorgeous photo of a large-scale painting above a bed, or a series of framed black-and-white photographs. Then I remember that I live in earthquake country. And even if I didn't, I wouldn't want a hard, heavy object directly over my bed. Even the best hanging devices occasionally break, and getting hit upside the head with a pointy, acrylic-on-wood artwork isn't a nice way to wake up by any stretch of the imagination.
For those of us who live in earthquake zones — and it seems that due to fracking, many more of us now are — or who just prefer something a little softer above our sleepy heads, here are three alternatives to heavy photos or artwork above your headboard.Paint a Mural
Want artwork without the frames, glass, or sharp corners? Apply paint directly to your wall. Hire a local mural artist to paint a unique, commissioned design for your bedroom, or head to a local craft store to pick up stencils and DIY the project yourself.

One of the most sought after event planners in the US, and now the world, Jung Lee actually got her start in the food retail industry, overseeing the design, construction, and launch of a string of wildly successful high-end gourmet food stores. She then moved on to develop residential real estate just outside New York City, before finally channeling her passion for design, construction, and project management into events. Since launching her event production company Fête in 2002, Jung has starred on her own television show Wedded to Perfection and authored Fête: The Wedding Experience, which focuses on a modern approach to tackling events and includes stunning imagery from her portfolio of weddings.
We asked Jung to select six of her favorite tablescapes from Fête's archives, breaking down the strategy behind each look. Keep reading for inspiring ideas to apply to your next soiree!
In honor of the approaching holiday, I set out to find clover themed decorative objects that can be enjoyed far beyond St. Patrick's Day. With a modern approach, even more literal interpretations of this leaf can be subtle enough for every day design. Whether it's in the form of a gilded paperweight, a chic quatrefoil pattern, or a colorful photograph, these lucky clovers will tempt you to embrace this iconic shape.

Perhaps it's the swift approach of St. Patrick's Day, or my daydreams of green grass and garden parties, but lately I can't stop obsessing over kelly green. This fresh hue will add a shot of energy to any room you introduce it to, so consider carefully how you want to use it in your space. Go big with all-over wall color or wallpaper, or add a more subtle touch with furniture or accents. Check out 20 ways I'm loving it right now.
Mixing rustic and modern elements, this dining room also bridges the gap between late-Winter coziness and early-Spring freshness. There's no need to pick and choose between these disparate concepts — as you can see from this photo, they all play nicely together.I love the mix at play here, as well as some of the quirkier elements in the space. Here are four inspirational ideas you can use in your own home, pulled from this space.
- Leave the firewood within easy access. Just because the Winter season is drawing to an end doesn't mean there won't be a need for another crackling fire in the fireplace or woodburning stove. If you have room, neat vertical stacks of wood can also add a very intriguing visual element to a space.
- If you're partial to rough hewn wood, you need to mix in modern, sleek pieces to balance the look. In this space, the balance is achieved thanks in part to the trio of Easter-egg-colored glazed pendant lamps. They're the perfect offset to the scratched wooden tabletop, and the color of the pendants also add an infusion of Spring color to the space.
- Think beyond flowers. Granted, flowers are lovely, but why stop with just blooms? Take the bowl of pretty objects beside the florals on this table, for example. Do you know what's in that bowl? Turnips. Surprised? Next time you're in the veggie aisle, take a closer look at the rows of produce for unexpected decorating inspiration.
- Turn to open weave chairs for a lighter feel in your home. Heavy wooden chairs can really weigh down a room, especially in a space like this one, which has wooden furniture, wooden floors, wooden beams, and wooden paneling. The perfect offset — and a great choice for Spring — are these woven wire chairs. For a similar look, try the Accademia Vela Chair.
