TAKE ME THERE: ELLEN & PORTIA’S SANTA MONICA RANCH

If you’ve seen the cover of May’s Elle Décor, then you’ve seen a little slice of heaven. And if you turn to page 166, you’ll be transported into a rustic haven surrounded by the natural beauty of the Santa Monica mountains:

What was once the estate of actor William Powell in the 1920’s, then a monastery, later a rehab center, and then finally a professional horse facility before being purchased by the current homeowners, has now become the personal stomping grounds and decorating project of Ellen Degeneres and Portia De Rossi.

And decorate they did!

After much renovation to the multiple structures on the 26-acre property, Ellen and Portia created a sophisticated country lifestyle amongst the property’s 8 cabins and large barns…

I’ve daydreamed of a farmhouse fixer upper so with a little inspiration from the above, I’ve created my own little rustic retreat…

  1. They really have done a beautiful job on that ranch. It’s actually only a hop, skip, and a jump away from where I live and Hidden Valley (where they live) is utterly breathtaking. I just hope their home didn’t sustain any damage from the recent fires that had evacuated our area. It would be a shame to see all that hard work have to be redone.
