Yikes. And I thought Courtney Cox's home was beautiful. Architectural Digest magazine have taken us on a grand tour of Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi's Beverly Hills home in their latest issue (thanks for the heads up, Apartment Therapy!). I
love worship it (do you?)...
(above) "Portia de Rossi and Ellen DeGeneres at their Beverly Hills house, which was designed by architects Buff & Hensman and later expanded by decorator Melinda Ritz. In a sitting area adjacent to the kitchen, an 18th-century French worktable is paired with a suite of vintage bent-plywood chairs by Gerald Summers; the large painting is an Andy Warhol and Jean-Michel Basquiat collaboration, and the drawing to its left is by Bill Traylor. The cocktail table is 19th-century Belgian, the torchère is by Waldo’s Designs, and the Kirman rug is antique."
"A Ping-Pong table by Argentine artist Rirkrit Tiravanija makes a playful statement in the entrance hall, which features a Spanish Colonial bench from Lief and a Serge Mouille chandelier; the 19th-century Agra carpet is from the Melrose Project."
"In the living room, a pair of slipcovered sofas and a cocktail table, all by Kathleen Clements Design, are grouped with Louis XVI bergères; the Avalon blanket is by Hermès, and the fringed throw is an antique textile. A mixed-media sculpture by Catherine Willis takes pride of place over the hearth; to its left are a Roman bust and works by Mark Grotjahn and Ed Ruscha. A Ruth Asawa sculpture hangs to the right of the fireplace."
"DeGeneres and De Rossi added a screened porch, where a 19th-century trestle table is paired with wicker armchairs."
"DeGeneres and De Rossi’s shoe shelves are filled with their respective sneakers and stilettos."
"Brazilian-granite coping borders the pool."
