Playland Motel.

Destination-Playland-Motel-12-fede

The Playland Motel just opened in Rockaway Beach. Twelve designers and artists restored an old 19th century building and each designed one room. I love the idea of each room being different- then each time you stay there its a new experience and you never know what to expect. You can stay in a blue teepee bed one time and the next be in a floral garden with a giant deer on your wall. Pretty cool. The outdoors is like an adult playground, covered in sand with ping pong tables, drinks and DJs. They are sure to remind you that this is not the place to go if you are looking for a luxurious … [Read more...]

Calvin Klein's historic mansion in Miami Beach. Built in 1929, purchased by Klein in 1999, photographed by Bruce Webber for Vanity Fair in 2008. For sale now for $16 million. Apparently Klein has been cagey about photos of the house for years, and now photos are available courtesy of Douglas Elliman. The 5,800 square foot house comes with an additional couple thousand square feet of indoor-outdoor living space, 113 feet of bay frontage, a long infinity pool, a courtyard, five bedrooms, five ensuite baths, and an additional two half baths.
