...and his Palazzo Chupi.

Really, what's not to love? While directing one of my favorite films of 2007, The Diving Bell and the Butterfly, Schnabel helped to design this pinkish-red architectural bit of loveliness, located in Soho. The director/painter was inspired by American architects Addison Mizner and Stanford White.

What do I love about it? How about the layers of lively color and lovely texture, those wood panels on the walls and how they relate to the black and white tiled floors, the AMAZING artwork (yes, those are Picassos...although the Femme au Chapeau will be auctioned at Christie's...)

In one word, it's luscious.

Visit it yourself at 360 West 11th Street. Or just go here.
