Its time to redecorating Gracie Mansion. Mayor Bill de Blasio’s new decor, featured this week on Instagram demonstrates (again) that official decor tends to be treated as a form of expressing identities. The Americana we use to see ion the home of NYC's first family is nowhere to be seen. Instead, the interiors are filled with new furniture by Brooklyn-based West Elm, just as the de Blasio family moved from Brooklyn. I miss the formal interior that Jamie Drake created for former mayor Michael Bloomberg at Gracie Mansion.
