Oh my friggin' lord!! Look at Kirstie Alley's absolutely HIDEOUS frou-frou interior of her country home in Maine! frou-frou hell

Everything is done in horrid pink tiny flowers.

Has to be one of the very worst interior decorating jobs of all time!

I seriously doubt she's ever lived in it. But when her decoraters asked her what she wanted it to look like inside, I guess she told them "pink, lots of pink. Very feminine. Lots of flowers and pastel colors. Very girly." And they did what she wanted. But like I said before, she's probably never lived in it.

OP, we've seen Kirstie's Maine house. I think we decided that the house itself was fabulous but all her frou-frou shit had to go.

It is pretty spectacularly hideous.

She fits in with the natives there.

I could eat a swatch book and puke a better home.

That place looks like it was designed with a 6-year-old girl's taste and a 60-year-old actress's bank account. The saddest part is how much they RUINED an otherwise gorgeous house.

Money can buy you real estate, but it can't buy you taste.

I realize Scientology makes one blind to the homosex, but I didn't realize it made one blind to good taste.

Maine--home of the carnivorous black flies--No Thanks. The house is nice, but the pink, cutesy stuff ruins it.

by Anonymousreply 812/02/2012

[quote]The actress, who adorned the home's interior with pink walls, delicate curtains and copious floral patterns, has listed the residence for $2.35 million. UPDATE: After two price reductions, Kirstie Alley's home is listed for $1.75 million.

So, nobody is interested in telling their friends they are living in the former Kirstie Alley home?

hmmmmmm

Not sure I'd want to admit that my summer home is decorated in the style of "Christmas Tree Shops."

I think it's fabulous!

She has been in it. I've been in it. the pictures don't do it justice...it looks much tackier in person. When I visited her there (LONG story) she was dating that creepy looking James Wilder. He likes to says "balls" a lot, btw. she had a nanny for each child, and the nannies wore these frilly pink uniforms. Her father spent a lot of time with her there, and he was actually a very ordinary, nice guy. She was wearing a very low cut blouse that threatened to expose her at any second. It was a sort of casual business meeting...sort of, long story...and she had staff cooking for us in the kitchen (in chef's garb). There were six of us there, including her boy-toy and dad, and I think there were almost as many cooks as guests. One of the women I'd gone there with said she thought Alley had a huge closeted dyke vibe in person. Alley gushed over me as if I was her pet gay for the day. Though she was, honestly, very sweet and kind, though terribly narcissistic in terms of the conversation.

Why does she have a home in Maine r12? Not work related I presume?

by Anonymousreply 1312/02/2012

R13...She loves Maine. She said that the people there are very sweet to her and she seemed to appreciate that fact. Apparently Travolta owns a home nearby, and she fell in love with Maine when she was visiting him.

I came here prepared to defend her but oh my.

by Anonymousreply 1512/02/2012

Ok, as someone who has to decorate on an extremely reduced budget, I love a shabby chic, bohemian look a lot because it is eclectic and allows me to mix a lot of different looks together and have it be gypsy caravan, with a touch of English/French country thrown in. I think I have an idea of the look she is going for, but it takes a lot of work to achieve, because it's based on a very artistic sense of colors and how they work together on the color wheel, as well as mixing disparate elements in an aesthetically pleasing and whimsical way but not going overboard.

I get the sense that she is trying to achieve a homey, lived in feel, but with absolutely no sense of design or artistic idea whatsoever. This looks very much like she designed it herself, I would lay dollars to donuts that's what she did. The white base palette is very Rachel Ashwell, but without the lived in antiques and use of found objects in a creative way. This looks like a grandmother's beach house from the fifties. Awful, awful, awful. I was expecting to see the sort of look I go for when I read OP's headline, it's not everyone's taste, but I see a background in art and design have informed my choices more than I give myself credit for.

W&W for R. 4 by the way.

Not surprising. Big women are into tiny things. Go to a miniature show and all the women are Two-ton Tessies.

Can somebody explain how Kirstie has multiple homes and where the money comes from to keep up her lifestyle? She hasn't worked in years.

by Anonymousreply 1912/02/2012

I couldn't even look at all the pics. It was too nauseating. It looks like an oversized child's playhouse.

by Anonymousreply 2012/02/2012

So would you live there, free, if you couldn't change the decor and weren't allowed to tell visitors that you didn't decorate it?

All we need is an oily,shaved sex addict with a zucchini up his ass and maybe some Madame Alexander reproductions in the background and this place could be featured on Lurid Digs.

How far away is this from Martha's Maine estate? Cuz I think Ms. Stewart will call out the Design Police on Ms. Alley's ass if she's anywhere nearby.

You are WRONG. Wrong. Wrong. She's owned that house for almost 15-20 yrs. She bought it with her husband Parker. They have spent a lot of time there

I'm sorry, but I love it.

I can imagine just gabbin' all weekend long lounging with a cup of hot tea and cookies. Seriously.

I think I would feel thirty years younger because of the decor and maybe, this is why Kirstie designed it that way.

Also, who could get depressed in those rooms?

How far is Miss Travolta's house from Ogunquit?

by Anonymousreply 3512/03/2012

it looks like a house without a man, which is probably appropriate for Kirstie.

It's like the asinine "designers" on Extreme home Makeover asked a femme teen lesbian what her favorite things was: vagina.

Gorgeous outside - notice how many pix are outside. So so so ugly inside. I've spent time in Maine and it's a very beautiful state, but she has really ruined that house. Unbelievable.

by Anonymousreply 3812/03/2012

R1, of course, she has never lived in it fulltime - but her twitter posts indicate that in 2012 she spent time there two or three times.

I liked Kirstie until I saw these photos.

This ghastly horrendous interior decorating job makes me lose respect for her.

I guess I still like her, but I certainly do not understand anyone could decorate a home in sucha a manner and spend more than two seconds in the home.

All those pastels remind me of the time I ate myself sick on after dinner mints. It looks like it belongs to Truly Scrumptious in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.

Ghastly. For those of you who can't spell.

by Anonymousreply 4312/03/2012

For a while, this thread was underneath the "Welcome to the Dollhouse" thread which was appropriate. It's exactly what I thought about the place. It's a luxury, adult-sized version of a child's fantasy dollhouse.

The interior is ghastly, but presumably she didn't do anything to the architecture (or did she?). Does this decorating drop the value of the house? The new tenants would have repainted, etc. anyway.

And this from a woman who used to be a decorator before she became an actress.

Isn't it just hideous that someone could have such bad taste? Just appalling. What can we do when someone chooses to decorate their home according to our standards? Something must be done

Sort of OT but, do DWTS contestants get paid?

by Anonymousreply 4912/03/2012

Oh, yes, they get paid. It's on a by-episode basis, but I don't know how much. I suppose each "celebrity" negotiates individually and the fee is based on their popularity, Q rating, or something.

I wonder if the professional dancers now might make as much as some of the celebrities. I think that Derek Hough probably does. He's worth it.

Her ex husband, Parker is apparently Main Line or something equally preppy so she did it as an homage to the chintzy set. It's not my taste at all but she succeeded in her mission.

[R49] The longer they stay in the competition the more money they make. Seems like I read if they make it to or near the final they can take in something like a half mil.

And yet I do like some of her furniture - but altogether it's just TOO MUCH. And I don't like the bathrooms at all.

She had this decorated when she bought it. That was probably about 20 yrs ago. When I watched her reality show, her house in California was a mess and hasn't had much upkeep or new decoration in decades either
