We recently received an eclectic penthouse design from one of our readers, that seems to blend in perfectly with the shiny Las Vegas. Mark Tracy started the design of this project with the intent to use the finest materials on every surface to create a friendly, inviting, colorful, and extravagant design for a penthouse unit in the Veer Tower of Las Vegas’ modern City Center development. This penthouse‘s primary features include a 13’ tall by 13’ wide floor-wall-ceiling glass mosaic in an ocean blue color scheme with embedded images and bordered by a glass veneer tile. In the middle of the centerpiece mosaic hangs a chandelier encased in a blue glass cube. A Blue Louise” granite table floats off the kitchen island acting first as a bar elevation and then seamlessly dropping to a lower elevation where it serves as the units primary dining area. Enjoy.
When it came time to select a cover model for this year’s Health & Beauty issue, all eyes turned to Taylor Makakoa—and not just for the obvious reason. Oh, sure, the statuesque 5-foot-10 Hawaiian—whose credits include a steamy photo spread in the April 2011 issue of Maxim—has the beauty angle covered. But she’s much more than just the proverbial pretty face who supplements her modeling career—which began at age 12—with a night job as the onstage assistant for Mirage headliner Terry Fator (who also happens to be her husband). Checkout her amazing photo gallery after the jump and make sure you follow Taylor on Twitter. [See More]
