See, when someone has awesome taste (art! and purple!) and a killer apt with to-die-for moldings, I get jealous. Jealous, but hey, mazel tov, whoever you are.

When someone has awful taste and tears down a historic building to put up their own private mcmansion (coughSCHWIMMERcough), i get vicious. FEH.

Dear God that is the worst decorating job I have ever seen. Who did it, some 12-year-old amped on sugar? What a pity the outside is so disgraced by the inside. They couldn't PAY me to rent that place furnished...
