London: Chat show host Oprah Winfrey has decided to gut her California home as she is not satisfied with the lavish decoration which she first chose.

The 59-year-old talk show host is unhappy with the interior decor of her beachside residence in Santa Barbara, reported

"The gilded mirrors, marble urns, the lavish carpets and sherbet palette - it was all very grand. But it wasn`t very true to myself.

"And there you have it: the thing that had been missing from all of the beautiful places I`d ever lived in was me," she claimed.

She also admitted that her home`s library disappointed her the most and she intends to make it more user friendly.

"It`s not easy to do an entire library that says, Do not touch the books. But somehow I managed. Maya Angelou once told me you can become either an old female or a wise woman.

"All I can tell you is that I`m evolving, my taste is, too, and someday soon this room will represent the person I`ve become," she said.
