Ellen DeGeneres Putting your Dreams to Words

“Home is where the heart is” and so each one of us has plentiful ideas on how our comfort haven must look and feel like. A house makes a statement about those who live in it and of course, it is a place where you create lifelong memories.

There are a number of factors that go on into building a house, right from design, décor’, colour to furniture. If you have a general idea on how you want your dream home to look like but do not know how the entire idea should come up together; the known celebrity and world’s top TV show host Ellen DeGeneres is here to help you!

The Ellen Factor

Ellen has donned a number of roles in the past including that of Comedienne, TV show Host, Academy Awards Host and a writer. However, very few people know about her talent with home interiors. She has been the mind behind 12 renovations and has an undying love for interior decoration.

Ellen and her real estate adventures have been covered by various magazines and newspapers earlier. She has also started her own line of home products recently through her lifestyle brand E.D. Now finally she is not only giving words to her own passion but to the dream home of millions.

She has penned a number of best sellers in the past, but this is the first time that she is going to touch upon her own interior decorator facet.

The Interiors of the “Home”

Ellen DeGeneres is releasing her much anticipated book “Home” in the fall of 2015. It is a comprehensive guide on Interior decoration that also mentions Ellen’s experiences as an interior decorator at her own home.

She intends to share hundreds of home decorating tips with her readers. The book will also contain the “breathtaking” snaps of her homes and her favourite corners in there. Ellen DeGeneres is inspired by art and nature and these elements come together in all her homes. Ellen has bought over a dozen of properties in the past and renovated them in her own unique and classy style. Her designing and ideas have found ways into many magazines but this is the first time that she is going to serve her ideas directly to her fans and readers.

The DeGeneres Homes

The latest home of DeGeneres created waves which came at an “eye popping” $40 million! It is a lavish estate in the Holmby Area, Los Angeles known as Brody house. Brody house is termed as “Architectural splendour” and so there is little wonder as to why price tag was not a consideration while buying it. This mid century dwelling was designed by the well-known architect E.Quincy Jones.

Her other purchase that became super popular is the horse ranch in Southern California. This massive ranch was designed by DeGeneres in collaboration with Jay Holman and Cliff Fong. There are ten other older estates that she owns and has designed. Now, that she is coming out with her own interior decoration book, her readers and fans can bring in the “Ellen Touch” to their dwellings as well without shelling out the millions she has!
