The Queen of Kitsch

I just saw this amazing home featured in the NY Times. Although I would never decorate my own home this way, I was impressed by homeowner Allee Willis' vision and exuberant life energy.  This house is all about living happy and expressing your inner self. Ms. Willis, is a Grammy and Emmy winning songwriter, producer, artist, set designer, director and collector. She is also the curator of an online museum of kitsch, which you can see at AlleeWillis.com.  Allee say's, “People who express themselves creatively are always happiest in that state.”  I couldn't agree more!

Happy colors for sure! The car roll-up-window handles are my favorites used as drawer pulls. Great idea! Ciao...

This looks amazing, but I have to say it's a little bit much, even for me :).

I'd love to be a guest in her home, but not live there. I sure give her credit for just going for it!

You sound good, Sarah. The mountains are peaceful?
