Ellen DeGeneres, home flipper? While many know Ellen for her award-winning talk show, it may surprise some to know that she has designed and flipped 12 completely decorated and furnished properties since she rose to fame.
Ellen says of her design style, “When putting a room together, I like to sit in every chair or stand in every corner and make sure there is something beautiful to look at.” The ED Ellen DeGeneres Crafted by Thomasville collection features pieces that embody this design sensibility. Below are some tips to use if you want to get the look of a home decorated for, and by, Ellen.
For Ellen, it’s all about openness and texture that creates a welcoming flow. Above, the living areas seem to merge seamlessly into one beautifully connected space. The light, airy look is highlighted by the organic, neutral palette inspired by nature.
The room above mirrors the light airy feel, with its wall of windows that floods the space with natural light. This view becomes the focal point, making this a great example of making the view a design element. The Montecito Sofa with nailhead trim offers comfortable seating for evenings in as well as entertaining friends. It creates the perfect space for entertaining and relaxing. The layered area rugs bring texture and a touch of color to keep the room from seeming cold and impersonal.
Bright White Walls with Vintage Décor and Modern Touches
The above living room has a relaxed attitude about mixing décor from more than one period. A conversation starter in its own right, the table is another example of how mixing styles creates a balanced feel in the space. The clean, white walls make a perfect canvas for the richly hued carpet as well as the organic and industrial elements.
You can replicate the look and feel of this room with the Whitecliff Tufted Sofa from the ED Ellen DeGeneres Crafted by Thomasville collection. The hand-crafted tufting displays classic refinement while at home in a cozy den or bright living room. The dark, fumed oak Canyon Live Edge cocktail table brings an organic feel to the space. Both rooms project a minimalist, balanced vibe that make them personable, homey, and comfortable.
Industrial Lighting and Rustic Furniture
Another example of Ellen’s excellent material-matching sensibility is the mix of industrial and organic materials in this cozy den. There is a cool, hip dynamic going on between the metal floor lamps, the upholstered chair, and the round cocktail table. The neutral but textured stone walls make a good foundation for unique home décor, and the area rug anchors the space perfectly.
Based on pieces from Ellen’s home, the Romero Chair exudes a cool, calm, and collected vibe that feels at home in any room. The Villere Round Cocktail Table showcases hand-crafted plank veneers and a mid-century modern finish. The brass pads covering each foot fit well with the industrial undertones of the space. The Somera Leather Desk/Game Chair (pictured left) takes multi-tasking to a new level. Again, textured, neutral walls let the pieces express a dynamic that makes this room suitable for relaxing evenings with your family, or casual conversations with friends. Always keep in mind that paying attention to the details is what will make your home really special.
