It’s always a good day (for me) when a magazine lands inside my mailbox!
This week’s happiness is the May issue of Elle Decor, with Ellen DeGeneres + Portia de Rossi’s property . . .
. . . 26-acres + 8 cabins north of Los Angeles.
PEOPLE! I WANT ELLEN TO BE MY NEW BFF!
It’s crazy! We have so much in common — spontaneous dancing, trying to be funny —
and, most importantly, we both love the serial re-doing + the constant moving!
“I can only change the furniture so much and I get bored,” said Ellen . . .
AND ME, constantly.
But I digress. Back to the important stuff!
Of course, she + I like the same decor style.
The rustic, the modern, the industrial. I know it’s not for everyone, but I love it!
Now let’s talk about how a simple magazine issue can change one’s life . . .
. . . not only do I have a new BFF (yay!) . . .
. . . but the magazine has changed my mind about my beloved postal sorter . . .
. . . it’s awesome, no? Well, believe it or not, I was on the fence about whether or not it would be in our next house!
Then, this happened. 2 words: Ellen’s. Sorter.
Now you can see why that postal sorter HAS to be in our next house!
And speaking of that photo’s ability to alter our decor, I saw these beauties + knew I had to find industrial bar stools!
Okay, so I’d already been shopping for industrial stools.
Here are a few examples one can find in Robert Redford’s groovy Sundance catalog:
Here’s my favorite . . . the Texas spinning stool, in color! I’ll take mine in red, please!
Wow, my eyes are spinning from all these bar stools!
. . . but I could add dozens more that I’d consider. That will just have to be another post for another day!
