We all know Vanessa Carlton was cool in the early 2000s, but her New York loft is proof she still has it! Currently available to rent, the recently married singer/songwriter's 2,500-square-foot apartment has been listed [1] for $17,950 a month — yeah, it's out of our budget, too. Aside from the usual perks, like a chef's kitchen, the SoHo loft is the epitome of cool-girl living. Filled with tons of texture, a mix of eclectic furniture, and exposed brick walls, the Manhattan pad perfects bohemian living. See the pics below, and because a multimillion-dollar loft is probably a "one day," not a "today," we found everything you need to get the look for less.
