Different experiences can put you in a certain mood.
Last Friday I was fortunate enough to tour the Sotheby’s Auction House in New York City. If you have never been to the auction house, it’s worth the trip. You are surrounded by the best and the experience is unparalleled. Much of the art we saw on Friday has been in private collections up to this point so the only opportunity to see the art prior to this auction has been in a picture.
On view last week were a number of Picasso paintings likely to sell for as much as $30 million, a bottle of whiskey expected to sell for up to $100,000 and a Monet painting that elicited audible gasps from my group that will likely sell for $75 million. All that beauty and the price tags associated with it put me in a mood for opulence.
This week’s feature is a magnificent home renovated by BOWA. The home has now been reduced in price by nearly $500,000 since it came on market. Check out the separate carriage house, yet another stunning yard and pool (this column officially has a trend), and the best gym in town. When you live in a home this lavish, you shouldn’t have to work out with strangers.

Chris Green is one of the DMV’s finest fitness instructors. A Lululemon and South Block ambassador, he is a coach and mentor to so many. He embodies grace, positivity and motivation in ways that no one else can. If we could all learn a thing or two from him, the world would be a much better place. He does so much for others, and does so with a smile on his face 99% of the time.
He recently ruptured his Achilles and has an incredibly long and tough journey ahead. As if COVID hadn’t impacted fitness professionals enough, throw this in the mix and it’s a double, even triple whammy. CG is no longer able to work and do what he loves for the time being because of this and we’d love your support.
