Julianna Margulies's Serene New York Apartment
Architectural Digest
When an actor plays a character as convincingly — and for as long — as Julianna Margulies has played Alicia Florrick on the celebrated CBS television series The Good Wife, it’s easy to conflate the two.

Leroy has spent a quarter-century buying and selling everything from a 3,000-year-old mummy's head to vintage war memorabilia.
