This weekend, Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin and wife Lyudmila sat with a Russian population census worker in their home in Novo-Ogaryovo. It's extremely rare for the Putins to be seen in public—never mind inside their home—which is why, of course, they camouflaged themselves with their couch. The setting may look drab to the naked eye, but the Putins are actually on the zenith of cutting-edge color trends of the world-leader set. Who's too cool for school now?
