Celebrity Style

I've always been a fan of Ellen DeGeneres and it was interesting to hear a little of her background growing up.  She mentioned she grew up never owning a house as her family always rented, so when she was able to finally afford her first home she purchased a home immediately, and then another, and then another...

The 2011 article about Ellen and her wife Portia was fun to read in Architectural Digest and I love the style in their Beverly Hills home.  It's a mix of traditional, contemporary, fun, and lots of touches of the unexpected.

Perfect example of mixing traditional with contemporary.  They kept it cohesive by sticking to neutral colors with just a pop of color from the artwork and blanket.   I love that lamp hidden away in the far left corner!
Entry to their home and did you know that's a ping pong table in the center?  It's a gorgeous glass and steel table designed by Argentine artist Rirkrit Tiravanoja.  
Cozy living room with couches you could just sink into.
I noticed they keep to subtle patterns and neutral colors even with the artwork.  The Puma art on the wall is perfect!
This kitchen is spectacular with the green cabinets, warm wood floors, antique rugs, and steel cabinetry hanging above the kitchen island.

I'm guessing this is a hallway or library and how interesting with the circular room spotlighting the small statues in the center and collection of books.  I love that chandelier.  I'm seeing a trend here that I like their choices in lighting.
I love the blend of old and new again here in this office.  The earthy plum color of the settee and the antique rug and cabinetry is so subtle and rich.
You have to put your Emmy's somewhere and the antique hutch is the perfect location.
This cracks me up!  Portia's gorgeous high heels on the left and Ellen's colorful sneakers on the right.  
If you want to see more of their home visit Architectural Digest.
