double rl.

did any of you watch oprah's interview with ralph lauren and his family at his colorado ranch last wednesday?  LOVE.  serious jealously over here.  i was trying to get ready for work while watching the episode, and the images kept pulling me in!  before i knew it i'd be sitting on the couch again, glued to the screen in awe.

in case you missed it, i rounded up some pictures of the property (and took a few shots of my tv screen while i was watching!).  the mix of southwest and americana is so RL (duh) and so gorgeous in this setting.     

i can't decide whether i'd rather stay in the teepee or the main house!  i guess i'll wait til i get an invite to make that decision ...

i loved what ralph and oprah kept saying about how his brand is a lifestyle.  it's not just clothes, it's a way of life.  and when he creates, he looks for the story behind it.  it's not just a fancy dress, he has to imagine who the woman is who's wearing it, what's she like, where does she live, where is she going, and so on.  it's a beautiful idea. 

more images on oprah's website here, video of the ranch tour here, and if you're craving more of ralph & co, the interview is transcribed here.

  1. Oh, gorgeous! I didn't see the the interview but I'm so glad you shared the images. That house is completely divine, and so RL. I love the way he's established his brand and how recognizable it's become. There's a cozy familiarity about RL!

  2. This is absolutely stunning, so Ralph Lauren! Would looove to vacation in a place like this.

  3. sorry to say, but I don't like that style! Maybe ok for a vacation, but not anything I'd like to live in. I think it's because I spent most of my growing up years in Colorado, so some of that seems kitchy to me? I much prefer an east coast style... brick house with black shutters, more old school style. Although I would totally hang out with Ralph Lauren, even at this house ;)

  4. there definitely is, casee marie!

    natalie, me too!

    erin - i hear ya, i tend to prefer east coast style as well, but out there, you have to go a bit more rugged, as you well know :)

  5. wow. I don't even know what else to say!! It looks amazing! I think I'll have to go check out that interview ;) Thanks for sharing!!

  6. no problem! i'm glad you liked it heidi!

  7. Love the chairs, look messy and yet stylish. :)
