"Opulence, I has it"

James Hill for The New York Times.

Today, The New York Times International Real Estate section gives us a "two-bedroom apartment with fine finishes in Moscow" (bold mine). Yours for US$2.6 million, this plush velvet-decorated pad is currently owned by a female architect who also uses it as her studio. The kitchen features a "ceiling [...] covered in mirrored mosaic tiles" and "purple tempered-glass [...] cabinets." Entry walls are "covered with black-and-silver floral patterned wallpaper" or "overlaid with an Italian decorative coating made from silver leaf." The space also has "wall sconces made with Swarovski crystals."

All that's missing is a tiny giraffe.
