While I am not immune to celebrity gossip, I mostly don't get too caught up in it.
But now and then, I find myself rooting for one of them, and that is certainly the case when it comes to Drew Barrymore.
And I am especially rooting for her latest marriage to art advisor Will Kopelman.
I've never heard him utter more than two words (which I think I heard him utter when Oprah interviewed Drew a couple of years back), but he seemed nice and I am determined that Drew should have her happy ending.
While travelling a couple of weeks ago, I picked up the latest issue of Architectural Digest and there was Will.
As an editorial aside, I almost never see anything in AD, much as I might admire it, that I would ever want in a house of my own. Does that make me a Luddite? Perhaps.
I am more of a put the kettle on kind of decorator (to borrow from Lisa Borgnes Giramonti's wonderful Novel Interiors) who espouses a more-is-more kind of approach, a combination of British/French/Canadian/Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey. I am after all, a woman with two giraffes in her living room. I really must do a post about that...
But then I saw the officer/dressing room that Will Kopelman designed for himself and said to myself: Damn! That Will Kopelman is talented!!! He should redo my office and closet!
I suspect he may be too busy to do that, but I am the Queen of Magical Thinking, so who knows?
To whet your appetite:
|The Singer Sargent reproduction on the wall is a magnetic bulletin board!|
How genius is that!!! I am so stealing that idea some day soon...
|I can so see myself curled up in one of those chairs reading Drew's upcoming memoir....|
Here's a pop quiz: What do Barry and Will Kopelman have in common? Well, besides the beards they sport, it's the Putnam Rolling Ladder Company.
Barry has been obsessed with getting a ladder from the Putnam Rolling Ladder Company since the late 1980s. We have even visited their little squirrely rabbit warren of an office/warehouse in Manhattan. And damned if Will Kopelman doesn't have two of them in his office/dressing room. You can imagine how Barry's eyes popped out at that!
Hmm - I may have to start a rolling library ladder savings account...
|I mean seriously....|
|This is a meticulous man|
|Love the cameos in the distance....|
|There's a soaker tub for you!|
|This almost feels like an old elevator to me...|
|That's a sound-proof door!|
Do you think Will sings loudly in the shower and that's why he did that?
Yes, Will could gladly take on my office/closet redo. There are two things standing in the way of this happening: his interest and my wallet.
Well a gal can dream can she not? After seeing Will's vision brought to life, I like him even more. Take care of our Drew, Will!
What do you think?
