Tasteful friends please take 5 minutes from your busy day to look over this Upper East Side "Townhome".

How old do you think they are? They're genuine WASPS aren't they? The real thing.

I think the house is very pretty. What a way to live in New York!

Quite a contrast with that $169 million penthouse we were looking at, isn't it?

They are awesome. They are the kind of UES-ers that seem fun. I like the way he says "the character of the home" (1:00) and she says "my drinks table" (2:40). Charming and welcoming, not snobbish and unkind.

Those couch pillows are on point

Wow, what exceptional interiors! The attention to detail is incredible, I had to watch it twice to catch it all. It won't be everyone's cup of tea but the choices of colors, the mix of patterns, the artwork and accessories all seem to reflect the owners' personalities really well.

What many people don’t know is that Barbara’s maiden name is THORNDYKE! She used to live in Miami and was a locally famous author and infamous chaser of young men before she finally settled down with Kevin.

Loved it all except Barbara finishing his sentences, all the time!

It’s hard to use some of those colors, particularly the bright greens, but they have it all sorted. That guest suite is really cool.

R11, She is the kind of quick thinker who gets impatient with slower types.

OP, Their townhouse is awesome.

Wasps do it best. Always have. When it comes to class they can't be beat!

I don't care for Mandarin food. And I wouldn't care for a Mandarin grandchild.

It’s beautiful. I didn’t hate anything, other than the animal print on the staircase.

It's funny because in England, Kevin is...how do I describe it?...the joke name for someone very trashy lower class (Sharon is the female version).

I usually hate the colour pink with a passion but the pink blinds with the pink painted window frames really carry it off. They say they had a decorator...it's not all Kev and Barb.

OMG - Golden Girls handle anti-semitism. I guess all you gurls know about this.

The decor, including the McLaughlins themselves, is, IMO, carefully chosen and attired to be the essence of their stores, wares, and clientele, to be a personal reflection of that tony milieu.

Is there a JMcLaughlin near you?

R16, With a name like "Kevin McLaughlin," he's likely not a WASP but a WIC.

by Anonymousreply 27July 23, 2021 8:43 PM

I would guess they are in their late 60s but believe they look much younger

They drink - and by that I mean Kevin drinks - in the way that Jews believe all affluent Protestants drink

Barbara has her books, her friends, Kevin's money...and she pretends his drinking isn't a real problem

Kevin should ask that brilliant designer to take a look at his neck - it's not "welcoming"

He's a stunted frat boy who believes he is really remarkable

Gino's wallpaper in the bar. Love it!

R27 We wouldn't let a McLaughlin in - there remain standards.

My point exactly, r30.
