Book Love: Ellen DeGeneres HOME


A client recently lent me Ellen DeGenerous HOME and I may just need to purchase my own copy.. Admittedly, I don't typically read coffee table books, however this one is worth reading from cover to cover. Ellen, in her own quirky, funny and clever way, shares insights into each home she and Portia have owned, the design styles and what she learned along the way. 

What's particularly different about this book is you can hear Ellen's voice through the pages.  Her distinct humour is evident even when talking about design. I love the approach. And her design aesthetic, stunning! 

I'm going to spend more time with Ellen this weekend :)
