Part 1: LIMES & LIES
By Christopher Rosa
March 13, 2020
The world feels like the 2011 movie
right now, with coronavirus fear at an all-time high. But one thing is keeping me calm:
Dakota Johnson’s Architectural Digest house tour.
Let me paint you a picture: Last night I was at the grocery store, stocking up on cereal and cans of chili I’ll never eat because it feels as if we could be quarantined any day now. In the checkout line, a person with no less than 15 jars of peanut butter in their cart started yelling at the shopper behind me for leaving their buggy unattended. I started sweating and felt my heartbeat rise, but then I played this clip on a loop from Johnson’s house tour that I’d posted to my Instagram.
It’s a world where your delicate and expensive chairs that are not meant to be outside sit by your pool because, “Who cares?” A world where you have a table made from the wood of Winston Churchill’s yacht that no one uses. You have a lemon tree and an orange tree. Crystals the size of toddlers. A People’s Choice Award. This is nirvana. Nothing can hurt you here—not tax season, not Ellen DeGeneres, and certainly not the coronavirus.

Dakota Johnson is coming clean as a fruit fibber.
During Tuesday's episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, the actress revealed that she had lied about her infatuation with limes during her viral Architectural Digest house tour back in March 2020.
While giving a behind-the-scenes look at her all-green kitchen, Johnson pointed out a bowl of limes and said, "I love limes, I love them. They're great. I love them so much and I like to present them like this in my house."
Now, the actress has confessed that she doesn't love limes at all, and in fact, is allergic to the citrus fruit.
"I'm actually allergic to limes. I'm mildly allergic to limes and honeydew melon," she told Fallon, noting that limes make her "tongue itch."

This is honestly one of our favorite home tours, because we love green kitchens and limes and Dakota loves green kitchens and limes. We think? Now we're confused.
