The December issue of Architectural Digest hits stands on Election Day, but here's a sneak peek of Michael J. Fox's Manhattan apartment, which he and his wife, Tracy Pollan, had decorated by interior designers Mariette Himes Gomez and her daughter, Brooke. The actors hoped to overhaul their place into "a younger-style apartment than we had when we were younger," he explains, meaning that anything with any color at all was replaced with the "clean lines, neutral colors, and sleek modern furnishings" the Gomez girls are known for. Scattered among the lacquered tables, chenille sofas, and glass lamps are all of Fox's accolades—five Emmys and four Golden Globes. "I'm not shy about the awards," he says. "But they're to intimidate, not to impress." Let's hope the intimidation is a motivating force: his Vermont farm has been looking for a buyer for more than a year now and has remained steadfast in its $2.75M ask.
