We got the February “Before and After” Architectural Digest issue today...(Long pause as we try to say something nice). The cover, while showing what we might deem as the ugliest bedroom we’ve ever seen, does look different. The usually “more is More” mentality of A.D. has kicked it "down" a notch with some minimalist hot pink and blue. It is a nice change. (There. Our nice statement) Now, we loves us some Before and After, but in typical A.D. style even the before pics seem stuffy and overly done… and that’s with the rooms empty (Rim shot, please).
We wont deny that the view from the Tuscan farmhouse is spectacular, or that the Tribeca penthouse is wonderful, but really, how can you go wrong with a Tuscan or Tribeca anything?
The magazine continues to prove what we always knew: small spaces have the ability to look magnificent, when really huge spaces always end up look like hotels or airports. Anyone disagree?
