    I like it...it's got some eccentric, whimsical stuff in it that goes against my conservative tastes in decor, but I like it. The bedroom is marvelous. It looks like a first-class suite on the Normandie...

    I want to punch those people in their faces. This is terrible.

    Minus the Las Vegas casino flooring, I love this place.

    I like absolutely nothing about this. OK maybe the white hallway with the snake floor because it looks like it could be the set of some classic sci-fi movie.

    The snake floor is pretty cool...something whimsical that you could have as one feature in your home...not lost in chaos like this house seems to be.

    I love the "Fat Chick with a Goiter" painting in the second pic. It cracks me up every time I see it.

    Some of the art is pretty cool, but the rest of it is ugly.

    Obnoxious and ugly, so is the decor.

    I have some juice on this apartment. I almost fell over when I saw those silver leafed doors. Had it not been for the doors I may not have recognized it. I was a junior designer and worked on that apartment with a firm in 1988/89. It's at 1035 Fifth Avenue, across the street from 1040 Fifth, home of Jackie O. It's across from the Met Museum over the tree tops so it's the perfect view.

    The client wanted French classic deco - then saw someone's apartment and changed to super traditional IN THE MIDDLE. If you see the the crown and door moldings in the foyer you'll see they are Deco and the doors were done in silver leaf and frosted glass. All the doors throughout the apartment had deco details and really great deco lever handles and hardware.

    I see they left the blind closet door and the floor. The floor was the only original thing we had to work with. So Mrs. Princess says to the head designer "rip out all the hardware and moldings, we're going trad-ish"! Her husband says over my dead body! Even your basic rich person can't change design in mid project when half the stuff has been ordered.

    And if you can imagine - the deco foyer eventually received Gracie wallpaper - the kind you see in socialites dining rooms with the cherry blossoms, birds and flowers. It made no sense. The living room was all silks and stripes. The floors were a jacobean, espresso marquetry which were beautiful, you can see them (lighter color) under the Botero.

    That long hallway is about 70 feet long with all the rooms going off it. I wonder what they did with the kitchen. We took away one room to add onto it.
