In 2016, the venerable magazine of building design, Architectural Digest ran a piece on the enigmatic style of Mulberry Plantation. I missed that for the blog at the time. But the piece is now available online. The emphasis in on the current owners — what one might dub the third generation of Wall Street Planters — to make it into a comfortable home without altering much of the historic architectural qualities of the main house.
It is all too easy to find fault and I do not do it for the sake of faulty-finding, hopefully, but the piece blithely ignores African American experience and slavery or much mention of rice.
