I love it when I can legitimately be a peeping Tom into some extraordinary homes. Nothing like a little relaxing break with a cup of tea and a tour of the Beverly Hills home of Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi, with a Napa Valley Vineyard compound, a French Chateau and a family friendly modern Brazilian thrown in for good measure. And all for the budget friendly price of $5.99 and a trip to the newsstand for the November issue of Architectural Digest...

Love the eclectic mix of Ellen and Portia's home, and check out the shoe closet, hilarious!

So many interesting pieces of art.

Amazing kitchen island.

Love this eat in area off the kitchen, bringing the outside in.

I'm a sucker for book shelves.

Very tranquil, don't you think?

Gee, which is which?

Great tub!

Now onto 40 acres on a vineyard in Napa Valley.

Another amazing kitchen design.

This is gorgeous!

Now here's a tub to sink into! And love the purple ottoman.

Now off to a Chateau in the Auverne region of Central France. 

This is just dreamy.

And oh-so French.

This is poolside in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

The fireplace is made of stacked Quartzite.

Just like with fashion, I love finding gorgeous high style items at budget friendly bargains, AKA, the thrill of the hunt.  Check out stores like Home Goods where all this gorgeous bedding comes from.

This ottoman may not be purple but its' leather and what a find at Ross $69 

Lots of out door candle holders priced under at $15! at TJmaxx.

Wouldn't this look good in Ellen and Portia's garden? Don't tell it's only $14.

Lot's of wrought iron accents for your Napa vineyard at Ross.

These vases all priced from $9 - $20.

And this little french clock for the desk of the bedroom in the Chateau, Oui?
And more ottomans, because I like them, and they all open for storage.

Happy Hunting!
