Tune in, turn on, drop out — with Hillary Clinton. Listen to the colors of your mind.

I'm reading Architectural Digest's Step Inside Bill and Hillary Clinton's Deeply Personal Washington, D.C., Home." Deeply personal? Is that even possible
Ms. Clinton’s mother, Dorothy Rodham, partnered with her daughter in selecting most of the furnishings and landing on just the right paint and patterns... “Both my mother and I love color, and you can see, we have a lot of color in the house that came from our collaboration.”... “I have to say, it was a very nice refuge from my life in the Senate,” says Ms. Clinton of the process. “I’d come home or I’d get sent color samples, or fabric swatches, or pictures of furniture, and it was a nice way to turn one part of my brain off and turn the other on.”
Turn off your mind, relax and float downstream.

From the slideshow...
An anteroom ahead of the kitchen, this nook is used for informal meetings.... The space has a little desk that Ms. Rodham had used for correspondence and paying bills.
We're calling her "Ms. Rodham now? And I'm supposed to picture her sitting at a little desk paying her own bills and doing "correspondence"? What is it, the 19th century all of a sudden? Is she still selling the idea that she doesn't know anything about email? [ADDED: Sorry, "Ms. Rodham" must be the mother Dorothy.]
[The decorator Rosemarie] Howe experimented in order to find just the right red for these walls, something coral and not too blue. She landed on Benjamin Moore Bird of Paradise 1305. The painting over the love seat is by Virginia artist Barbara Ryan. “It was something I saw and admired so long ago,” says Ms. Clinton. “We’ve had it for many years. Someone who looked at it remarked and laughed: If you look at the cloud or smoke in the back, it looks like a comic profile of my husband. But that’s not why I bought it.”
Not why I bought it but I enjoy telling people the puff of nothingness in the background looks like my husband... who used to have a little nook next to the Oval Office for informal meetings.

I'm sorry! Am I going too deeply personal? All right then, I'll turn that part of my brain off and turn the other one on, the one that thinks somebody has some D.C. real estate to unload and a glitzy magazine to assist in reeling in a credulous buyer.

But listen to the color of your dreams/It is not living, it is not living/Or play the game "Existence" to the end/Of the beginning...

ADDED: Here at Meadhouse, the word "deeply" is considered deplorable. Read the 2014 post, "Deeply... it's such a poser word."
Said Meade... It made me wish I'd had a tag on the word "deeply" all along. It's a metaphor, creating an image of abstract concepts in space. Where are you when you are "deeply in love"? There are so many trite usages — deeply in love, deeply disappointed, deeply religious, thinking deeply, deeply troubled, deeply concerned, deeply offended, deeply regret — and "deeply" is deeply embedded in constitutional law doctrine with the phrase "deeply rooted in this nation's history and tradition." But I'm interested in seeing how is "deeply" is deployed in various political and cultural statements, so I've searched this blog's archive, and here's the best of what I found....
There's a list of 12 items, and it deserves a new one, the unlucky 13th: "Step Inside Bill and Hillary Clinton's Deeply Personal Washington, D.C., Home." Interestingly enough, 2 of the items on the old list have Hillary:
5. Last May [2013[, Tina Brown said: "Now that Chelsea is pregnant, and life for Hillary can get so deeply familial and pleasant, she can have her glory-filled post-presidency now, without actually having to deal with the miseries of the office itself..."...

8. "Clinton’s interest in global women’s issues is deeply personal, a mission she adopted when her husband was in the White House after the stinging defeat of her health care policy forced her to take a lower profile." 
"Deeply" — in the Hillary Clinton context — seems like a cloud or puff of smoke in the shape of defeat.

I shouldn’t be shocked that there are still writers out there willing to gush and fawn over Hillary. But this nauseating bilge is striking in its cluelessness, as if they know nothing about [who the hell is Ms. Rodham?] other than what she bleated out dicing a tour of this house. Who is the audience? Who still wants to read hagiography unencumbered by the wreckage left in her wake? She perpetrated the most costly, unbelievable, dangerous political dirty trick in the history of the world, using other peoples’ money as usual, and yet this fluffy puff piece floats across the page with nary a nod to the real world. Again, who is this person writing for?

"...cloud or puff of smoke in the shape of defeat"

They deeply desire to avoid the defeat word. In our modern feminine primary social order that word isn't allowed to be used for girls. It hurts their feelings. She didn't lose. The opportunity was stolen from her.

It. was. her. turn.

She cares deeply about women's issues. She works hard to keep women and little girls from feeling defeated.

"The people who had lived there before were very tall, so counters and things were quite high.”

This is the one good idea I took from my late step-monster: raise the kitchen counters and bath vanity cabinets. Of course, she ruined Dad's by using a too-deep sink and putting a microwave too close over the stove.

Wonder what HRC's idea of "very tall" is.

Because Hillary is a sociopath who feels nothing at all we must elevate her pretensions to humanness by prefacing references to “normal” traits with “deeply.” Their desired effect falls flat with this audience. Their habit of Modifying “personal” with “deeply” just sets off my BS meter.

There's many perks to being a world historical figure. Your real estate is worth more on the resale market. Everything you use or touch is worth more. I bet Bill Clinton's gently used underwear would fetch a pretty price on EBay. No need to donate it to charity. It would be in poor taste for her to sell the used Depends though. You've got to draw the line somewhere, and someday the Clintons will find that line.

deeply in love, deeply disappointed, deeply religious, thinking deeply, deeply troubled, deeply concerned, deeply offended, deeply regret

Deeply saddened. So perfunctory it’s become trite.

And what comes after deeply? Something even deeper we must suppose.

The point of emotions has become competitive. You feel something? It must be so overwhelming that you can barely express it. Otherwise, what’s the point?

If your emotion doesn’t stir an equally strong emotion in me, how are we supposed to talk about it?

To not share the experience is to be forced to ... listen.

Did they show pictures of the room with the crazy wall where she keeps that ginormous organizational chart with all the government lackeys and the law enforcement lackeys and the 'fixers' and all their respective pecking orders? And the other walls and the ceiling decorated with the country cut outs from the political atlas and the photos of the corrupt foreign leaders and their associated ledgers beneath and the skeins of different colored yarns draped about with push pins connecting everything?

The secret door must have been behind that bookcase she was leaning against.

Rosemarie Howe is more than a bit of a poseur since she has no color sense worthy of the brahmins of the DC ruling class. This is Benjamin Moore Bird of Paradise 1305. This is the bird whose plumage inspired the color. And this is Ms. Hillary's future wardrobe.

There hasn't been a more resounding clash since RMS Titantic met that iceberg.

Nice to see that Hillary's interior decorator apparently holds greater sway than her stylist. Hillary has always made very questionable fashion choices, but the home looks quite lovely appointed. The blue on the walls the only decision I questioned, and yet even then it was not that bad.

roesch/voltaire said...

What's left but to sink deeply into interior design from the designing women?

Crazy Jane said...

You can see what happened here. Some PR agent or supernumerary at the Clinton Foundation, or perhaps the CGI, pitched this story and "Architectural Digest" took the bait.

As a kindness, someone should send a message to the outer precincts of the mainstream press: Interest in the Clintons' personal lives, including their luxy houses and interior design ideas, was never high and has faded considerably, as will the colors on all the walls of their little DC redoubt.

They were A-listers when they had influence to sell, and they could give 15-minute speeches that fetched hundreds of thousands of dollars each. Donald Trump would pay them to class up the audience his latest wedding. People would read fashion stories about Chelsea's wedding dress.

It's over now, thank God.

“I bet some of the furnishing was stolen from the WH”

At least some of the nicknacks. In the Sun room they showed something from the rulers of Jordan, and something from Nelson Mandela. Apparently Crooked Hillary thinks it was ok because they were given to the Clinton’s personally. If they got them while Bill was President, there was no such thing as getting gifts personally as head of state. Heads of states, in particular, exchange gifts when they meet - for example, the first edition of a Churchill work this visit by the Trumps to London where they met QE II. Those gifts belong to the country. It would just be the sort of brazen that Clinton would pull, putting stuff stolen from the White House on display in Architectural Digest. Laws like that only apply to the little people. Etc.

Prole: I yield to no one in my distaste for Hillary Clinton but her house is lovely. Architectural Digest exists to produce pangs of jealousy.

The decor isn't ugly, it's pleasant enough, but there's nothing particularly attractive or "lovely" about it. Conventional decor circa 2019, no personal stamp. Nothing wrong with that, but fails in the task of inspiring envy or providing inspiration.

I enjoy looking through "shelter" magazines but my main complaint is that they just don't make me envious enough. I want aesthetic delight - design and color inspiration for the interiors, and, for the building, an "oh man what exquisite domestic architecture, I wish I could afford to buy a splendid old house like that/hire an architect" experience. Instead, there is a tendency for the featured rooms and houses in one issue to just look like all the featured rooms and houses in other issues.

I'm looking for a high-quality envy experience, not just another month of "how the hell do people with career X come up with the kind of coin necessary to own and run six fine homes/apartments on four continents?", prole-quality envy.

It seems like a nice, unassuming house, but Hillary's decorator played it very safe. The place looks like millions of other upper middle class suburban homes. It has no unique character or personality -like it was focus group tested.

I just came across a book called The Mind Is Flat: The Remarkable Shallowness of the Improvising Brain. According to the publisher,

"The assumption is that below a mental “surface” of conscious awareness lies a deep and complex set of inner beliefs, values, and desires that govern our thoughts, ideas, and actions, and that to know this depth is to know ourselves.

In this profoundly original book, behavioral scientist Nick Chater contends just the opposite: rather than being the plaything of unconscious currents, the brain generates behaviors in the moment based entirely on our past experiences."

It looks interesting--and exaggerated.

That house is gorgeous. I can't stand Hillary or anything she wears, but I would move into that house in a heartbeat.

As for the deeply ridiculous article that accompanied it, I have a little bit of personal experience. My house was recently featured in a regional magazine. My decorator did a terrific job and asked if she could have a photo shoot here, and then attempt to get it featured in a magazine as some advertising for her. Once my pictures were chosen by this magazine, they had to write something to go along with the pictures. Virtually EVERYTHING they wrote was inaccurate or just not right. It wasn't slanderous or anything; it just was incorrect or an exaggeration. We weren't ever contacted directly for a quote. I suspect that even though this is Architectural Digest, a lot of it is drivel concocted with a generous amount of license.

Which isn't to say homeowners aren't ridiculous for wanting to be featured.

stevew said...

That article makes me retch, and not only because it is a fawning piece involving the miserable and disgusting Clintons. I can appreciate a beautiful house, for its location, decoration, and architecture, but this sort of lusty discussion is really off putting. Reminds me of my world traveling friends that tell me how and why they adored their trips to Sri Lanka and Burma, and just how important it was to experience those places first hand. Probably can discern wet leather and pencil lead in that glass of Napa Cab they've had in their cellar for 30 years too.

Yeah, I'll be over here. Thanks.

Bruce Hayden said...

“All AD featured home articles are like that.”

My partner has had several of the houses she designed as an interior decorator shown there, and that seems right. The funny thing is that the ones that she has designed for herself were more spectacular. She does amazing things with color, stuff that many designers wouldn't try. The one I bought from her almost 20 years ago had burgundy carpets, medium blue as a secondary color, and light and dark woods tying everything together. Much of the furniture was white. The one that we spend our summers in has golden woods (ceiling, floors, and lower walls) predominating with orange and even red accents. The furniture is mostly dark brown, with a mix of new and antiques, some of which have golden wood inlays. Showed a friend, who is an artist, photos of the house, and she said that it is one of the warmest houses she has ever seen. Wants to visit after that. That isn’t the type of stuff though of hers that ended up in AD. Rather, for example, friend of hers has a two story waterfall in the entry. Whenever it breaks, he has to bring someone over from Italy to fix it, which means he mostly just runs it for guests. He also has a double circular stairway up to the second story. The key though is that he has a name that people in his city recognize. And that is the case for her other AD designs.

Often a synonym for "phony," especially in Washington where politicians commission polls to tell them their Deeply Held Beliefs.

My problem here isn't with "deeply", but rather "personal". I think the phrase you're looking for, when it comes to Hillary, is "deeply robotic".

"So when Althouse invites us deplorables to "think deeply" about something, she's actually deplorably trolling us?"

I didn't notice a problem with this word until Meade commented about it, and I'd forgotten the problem, so I'm mostly quoting him. I'd say it's a word to watch and it often signals bullshit.

I guess I do say "think deeply" from time to time. I looked in the archive and think I say it about once a year.

My GPS accidently took me through Chappaqua once on my way to NYC. I had the car fumigated immediately after.

Has Robin Givhan ever written anything positive about Melania Trump? Of course she touted Michelle as the new Jackie-O.

Melania seems to be wearing a lot of white on this state visit and I wondered if it was a subtle homage to the Queen's mother, not Diana. Decades before Jackie charmed the French, the Queen Mother wowed them in white.

King George VI and Queen Elizabeth‘s infamous State Visit to Paris in July 1938 originally scheduled for June, was postponed to July after the Queen’s mother, the Countess of Strathmore, died five days before the start of the visit. The four day visit was extremely significant in the hostile environment of the late 30s. The Queen Mum, a life long fashionista known for her impeccable taste, was said to dread wearing only black mourning on a state visit. So Norman Hartnell, her couturier, came up with the idea to design an entire wardrobe in white, which is also a color of mourning in much of the world. Queen Elizabeth and her white gowns were a huge hit with the French.

I was surprised there wasn't more padding and corner guards on all of their furniture and interiors as Hillary has a lot of unexplained "trips" and "falls". Is she still taking anti-seisure meds?

That picture of Hildabeast has to be over 10 years old. She is now very rotund and wearing mumus. Where are the pictures of the stair lift? Archicterual Digest has joined the fake news club. So glad I cancelled it many years ago. Pathetic.

I would have liked to have seen her bar setup, but I am guessing they decided that a pallet of gin wasn’t that photogenic.

I have the same reaction when journalists and anti-gun activists write that someone is/was "heavily" armed. They even use this when only a pistol is involved.
