In the big apple, the hottest residential properties are the ones that literally sit on top of it all. Whether you're writing a down-payment check or just salivating over the thought of it like me, there's no denying the allure of New York's building-topping, showstopping spaces (such as Jill Stuart's edgy apartment above). There's hardly a bad view from the 52nd floor of the Bloomberg Tower either: What could be more appropriate than Warhol's soup cans in the kitchen? Does everyone in New York have an art collection to die-for (or to at least retire on)? And who says there's no view of the sky, stars or trees in the city? Generous use of wood extends the natural theme of this lower Manhattan penthouse apartment to the indoors. Distinctive pendant lights and modern recessed lighting maintain the contemporary feel.

Burgos has also applied her magic to a loft in Tribeca. I love the modern pendant lights that hangs overhead and sought out the design at Euro Style Lighting. This style works for kitchen islands as well as dining room tables.  Broadway Collection Crystal Bar Chandelier Sure, a penthouse apartment in New York will cost a bundle. Infusing your home with the aesthetic however (minus the view) is much less cost-prohibitive.  Images: Small Shop ,  World of Architecture , HiConsumption , Joel Sander , Marie Burgos
