Oprah Winfrey is giving her massive Santa Barbara estate a major makeunder.
The 59-year-old mogul recently opened up to O Magazine about her decision to redecorate. Lady O tells the mag:
"I knew my house was impressive. I mean, just about every guest I ever invited for dinner told me so as they perched on the edge of the opulent sofa, trying not to get fingerprints on anything. I owned a stately home and I poured my heart and soul into making it perfect."
Designer Rose Tarlow helped Winfrey redecorate her dwelling. Oprah adds:
"The gilded mirrors, marble urns, the lavish carpets and sherbet palette – it was all very grand, but it wasn't very true to myself … Maya Angelou once told me you can become either an old female or a wise woman. All I can tell you is that I'm evolving, my taste is, too, and someday soon this room will represent the person I've become."
Wonder if she'll be having a garage sale?
