This Van Gogh-inspired pool should give Drake a run for his money

A masterpiece of a pool that people with helicopters can appreciate

Picture this: you’re a multimillionaire. You’re designing your house and you’ve just finished laying down the floor plans. Home cinema, tennis court, helicopter pad, secret tunnel to the nearest McDonalds and the 10-car-garage are all locked in. All that’s left is the pool. So what do you do?

It’s hard to say what we would shape our pool into if we had the available funds, but these pictures of a Californian mansion serve up quite a bit of inspo. A Redditor’s dad worked as a contractor on the pad and captured the pictures in the gallery above on a drone. From below, it might just seem like the classic, huge pool. From above, however, it’s a classical painting. The images reveal how the tiles come together to make up Van Gogh’s ‘Starry Night’, and it’s pretty stunning.

Now we’re just waiting for Drake to get word of the masterpiece after the lowkey diss on ‘Summer Sixteen’ turned a couple heads. “Now I got a house in LA / Now I got a bigger pool than Ye /And look man, Ye’s pool is nice / Mine’s just big is what I’m saying,” he rapped, which set Twitter on fire at the time. And, the results proved that he’s on the money with this one.

Drake copped the party house in the Hidden hills, dubbed the “YOLO Estate” back in 2012 for just $7.7 million, despite reportedly being worth $27 mill. The original owner, Larry Pollack, apparently just needed the money ASAP. In 2014 Drizzy told Rolling Stone that one of his goals is to have the biggest residential pools on the planet. “I was like, ‘What are the world’s craziest residential pools?’ and when I searched online, this came up … This house was the desktop image on my computer years before I bought it.”

The owner of the ‘Starry Night’ pool can probably expect an invoice from the 6 God any day soon.
