The Gramercy Park Hotel is widely known as one of the most majestic art hotels in the world, but it's artistic impression on the ceiling of the hotel's Drawing Room that takes the Dramatic Designs spot this week.

Located directly across from Gramercy Park, the only private park in New York City, the Gramercy Park Hotel is walking distance to Union Square, the Chelsea Art Galleries, the MeatPacking District, Soho, and the East and West Villages. Guests staying here will have access to Gramercy Park, and enjoy a guestrooms designed with one-of-a-kind furniture and artwork.

At the top of the Gramercy Park Hotel is the rooftop garden and Gramercy Terrace, which leads to the outdoor dining and entertainment space, and the dramatic Drawing Room at the hotel:

There are approximately 4,000 light bulbs in the Drawing Room's ceiling art, which was conceived by Julian Schnabel. If you're worried about energy efficiency, only 2 percent of those light bulbs actually light up.
