Living Room with a Swimming pool!

It's holiday year-round at Evelyn McMurray Van-Zeller's Kasbah-meets-Hollywood townhouse in New York's Chelsea neighborhood. Evelyn inherited the place and its 30,000-gallon indoor swimming pool when her brother passed away in 1995, and she gave it a Moroccan-inspired look with antiques and medieval art.

The biggest hassle for her? Dusting off the antiques, medieval weapons, and the suit of armor she's placed around the pool. And here I am thinking about the chlorine getting all over the furniture and "prized" art.

But the rest of the house has a lived-in vibe with comfy sectionals, a cozy library with wall-to-wall bookshelves and a handful of quirky objects throughout. Oh, and by the way there's a second pool on the roof ... for Evelyn's pet turtles.
