Ellen + Portia

My favorite Hollywood couple is on the front cover of one of my favorite design magazines.  Is it Christmas already?  It has finally happened that lesbians have transcended the design box.  You know the one where we are style-less, flannel wearing, Doc Marten stomping retro throw backs with houses designed in classic college inspired furniture.   To put it bluntly – the hymen has been broken!

Ellen has put her money where her house is. She loves to buy houses and make them special places for her and her family.  This is a woman after my own heart as I do love to decorate and make my home a warm, inviting place for my family and friends.  And I know for sure one place is not enough to capture all of my visions and can’t wait to follow Ellen’s lead.   The one that is featured in this article is the seventh that Portia and Ellen have owned together and if you can believe it they are actually thinking of putting it on the market and moving on to their next adventure.

Though Ellen loves to change her environments to the point that the living room alone has seen 16 different lives (according to Portia), they loved the house so much at first sight that they bought it fully furnished and then added furniture, art and objects to pull it all together to become a place that reflects them both beautifully.
