Did you ever play the game 'Which Friends Character Are You'? Of course you did, who didn't? Well, not only did I think I resembled the beautiful Monica Geller, with my flowing long dark locks, I also thought I had the exact personality including the annoying obsessive compulsive trait. Which unfortunately, I did and still do.
Therefore, It would only makes sense that Courtney Cox and I would have the same taste in design, right? Well, it might be a stretch, but that is what I am going to let myself believe.
Her Malibu house, which graces the cover of Elle Decor, proves just that.
I was surprised to learn that Courtney, before becoming an actress, wanted to be an architect and even began college studying architecture. I am a designer, which makes me a very visual person. Because of this, it would only make sense for me to view the photos in the article before reading the actual article. After seeing the photos of her current home, it now makes sense that architecture is one of her passions. Plus, she also has great taste.
Within the amazing two acres of her amazing Malibu compound, not only does it include her beautiful home but also a tennis house, tennis court, screening room, salt water swimming pool and guest cottages (yes, that was plural). I guess some dreams do come true.
"In the spirit of Monica Geller, the driven, perfectionist chef she played on Friends, Cox sure-handedly led the team through “intense” once-a-week planning meetings that lasted three hours. “I’ve been overseeing renovations of my homes for a long time, and I have strong opinions about what I want and why.” She scrutinized every detail, down to the smoky color of the tennis courts.
