If you think all ballerinas live in a loft in Soho with bars on the walls and leather sofas then you may be mistaken.  This beautiful 4,700 sf apartment at the Dakota building in New York City proves that nothing further than that concept.  This ballerina apartment abounds with color on the walls, hand painted de Gournay wallpaper, sumptuous crystal chandeliers and a four poster mirrored bed just to mention a few of its proving points.  The overall atmosphere in this apartment is a refined and feminine space with a mélange of 50's and 70s pieces enveloped in jewel colors.  The unique design of the space is the work of Interior Designer Sasha Bikoff.
