Clift Rating: 4.0 Pearls

Philippe Starck is one of the hottest hotel designers, and the mastermind behind larger-than-life looks. Check out this massive chair he chose as the centerpiece of the Clift's lobby! Bring it home: Okay so unless you're having Big Foot over for dinner, a chair this size in your home is a bit absurd. But we love the furry throw on top of it. Toss an over-sized, faux-fur (don't want PETA after us!) blanket on your normal-sized couch and you'll have a stellar Starck-like look in no time!

Bring it home: Okay so unless you're having Big Foot over for dinner, a chair this size in your home is a bit absurd. But we love the furry throw on top of it. Toss an over-sized, faux-fur (don't want PETA after us!) blanket on your normal-sized couch and you'll have a stellar Starck-like look in no time! Aptly named, the Chandelier bar at the luxurious Cosmopolitan hotel and casino is dripping with crystals.
Bring it home: Try a toned-down version of the look by finding antique crystals at a flea market and hanging them from the ceiling, and along window and door frames. Colored crystals add a pop of color to traditional chandeliers. It's always so hard to get work done when someone's looking over your shoulder -- or staring you down in the face. At the Mondrian South Beach, you'll never feel alone -- even when you're alone in your suite -- with this wall art keeping you company.
Bring it home: We're all about photographs, we just prefer ones of people we know. So rather than a larger-than-life anime portrait, decorate your home with blown-up family portraits. It's an inexpensive way to make your home look more inviting, and show off where you got your great genes from! Here's one of Starck's looks that can be more easily translated into everyday life. The tall vase -- that reaches the ceiling when filled with flowers -- has an elegant look. And even though it's large, it doesn't feel imposing.
Bring it home: It doesn't have to dwarf you (like this one does the waiter), but a large vase filled with fresh flowers can add a punch of color and life to any room. A very space-age hotel, the nhow Berlin features a massive, UFO-esque piece of artwork (if you can call it that) mounted to the ceiling in the lobby.
Bring it home: Find a huge, pink cupcake holder, step on it a few times, and then nail it to your ceiling. We kid! Instead, try adding a funky, colorful light fixture or hang a pretty moblie over your entryway. Chess, anyone? It might be hard to pick these pieces up, but they look pretty cool as outdoor art -- and entertainment -- at the Winnetu Resort in Martha's Vineyard.
Bring it home: This set may be over-the-top for a home (and if you live in NYC like we do, good luck finding that much open space -- indoors or out), but even a regular-sized chess set looks chic in a living room. And you'll seem like the quite the intellectual. Dale Chihuly's world-renowned glass sculptures are larger-than-life, and the Borgata has plenty of them in the hotel's massive lobby.
Bring it home: A Chihuly may be out of your price range, but pretty colorful glass -- in the form of ornaments, vases, and sculptures -- can be found at a reasonable price. Fill a stained-glass pitcher with fresh flowers; now you have a centerpiece for your dining room table. The room may be small, but the wall art is not! Hotel Vondelpark distracts guests from the cramped quarters with a colorful, blown-up photograph of a flower.
Bring it home: Although we don't think this mural is too much for a home, those who want a simpler version of this look can paint one wall with an accent color to serve up a dose of omph instead.
