    We wanted a place that was, you know,
    much more just homey and had more soul to it.
    When we were looking around town,
    we stumbled upon this place.
    And it's in a neighborhood that we really love,
    and we just felt like this was a great place
    for us to move in to.
    This apartment just kind of embodies
    everything that I love.
    Obviously I love dark and rustic
    but still very clean and very chic.
    It just feels like our place in LA as well but in New York.
    So we worked with Don Stewart again on this house.
    He designed our house in LA as well.
    And we love working with Don.
    We duplicated this wooden wall behind us
    and put it in the bedroom as well
    because originally it was just a clean white bedroom.
    We built a whole new bathroom,
    and got rid of another massive bathroom
    that was on the other side of the apartment.
    Oh yeah, I made the big bath,
    it's now John's closet so he has to walk
    from the shower back to his, but it's a big closet
    though so you are very lucky there.
    This is my favorite.
    No, I love it, I love seeing it when I walk in.
    It adds a little whimsical vibe.
    And our dogs are in love, especially Putty.
    Putty makes love to it on often occasion.
    Oh my goodness, wow.
    I think the best things about this apartment is
    this beautiful unique kitchen.
    In the original version of this apartment,
    didn't really fit this aesthetic as well.
    Yeah, it was too modern.
    It was too clean, it was white.
    It just didn't feel like it fit
    everything else that was happening.
    So we made it fit and Don designed
    this amazing set of cabinets.
    And that's one of the best things about this apartment,
    just this beautiful unique kitchen.
    For me the kitchen is really important.
    It's the first thing I think about
    when we find a beautiful apartment like this.
    It's a place I'm going to be most of the time.
    I want it to be perfect for me.
    So Don did a wonderful job designing it.
    Obviously we love an open space.
    I'm a big TV fan.
    I want to be able to cook, drink wine,
    watch TV at the same time.
    So we made sure it was nice and open.
    This island is just gorgeous and I love the bar stools
    and of course the backsplash is gorgeous too.
    She makes pretty much everything well.
    She's really good at everything savory.
    I think I'm kind of notorious for cooking
    really low and slow meals.
    I love things that take four or five hours.
    We had to have two ovens.
    That all had to do with the holidays.
    For Thanksgiving we had over people
    and I made side dishes.
    Yeah, so we needed multiple ovens.
    We needed a lot of...
    It's actually illegal I think
    for us to have this much power usage
    with these two ovens.
    We live on the edge.
    We live on the edge, we're crazy.
    But I think we're violating some kind of code.
    I'm the sous-chef, I do chopping.
    And taking out the trash.
    Every once in a while though he does want to cook for me,
    but it's hard for me to just sit on the couch.
    She won't watch me, she won't let me just cook.
    It's frustrating to watch.
    I can make a mean fried chicken though.
    Yes, he's in charge of the fried chicken
    and the macaroni and cheese.
    Those are his specialties.

                Celebrites love the darkness! Notice their outfits of black and white duality symbolism! Hollywood is a death cult folks! These two are pedophile satanists and it's obvious! They traveled to Epstien Island! Do you remember their names Chrissy and John?? Do you?? They also supported Hillary and her Foundation to help traffick children for sex to the elite! STOP FOLLOWING THE "STARS"! They will lead you into the darkness! Stay in the light folks and confess with your mouth Jesus as your Lord and Savior!!

                    Of all the AD houses I’ve seen in magazines, this is the one where I love everything. Usually love something, but the colors and uniqueness of their home speak to my soul.

                      It is so wonderful to see a couple that got married out of true love. I saw on wikipedia that he wrote a song for her.

                                Why can’t I like them? It’s like I really want to, but there’s something about them that seems so insincere. As if they care what I think, lol.
