The magazine "Architecural Digest" goes well with the biography of Edwina, Lady Mountbatten, because she grew up living that kind of life.

"Architecural Digest" is often about the looks of the interior of the second or third home of someone really rich.

Edwina, Lady Mountbatten grew up as one of the two children, both daughters, of one of the richest men in Europe. She didn't have one home; she had several and was rotated frequently among them.

The result was that when she was an adult she couldn't stand to be in one place for long. One place as in one country. She was still rich, so she didn't have to stay in one place for long, and didn't.

Since reading her biography, when I look at the houses of the very rich in "Architectural Digest," I think of the kids, who are in some cases being trained at great expense to be restless.
