A firm believer in the magic of a glass bottled Coke-A-Cola and the healing power of a Varsity chili dog, Ellen is proud to be born and raised in Metro Atlanta. When Ellen was eight years old, she asked Santa Claus for a paint deck. She has always been passionately curious about interiors. She chased her curiosity to Samford University in Birmingham, AL, where she graduated with an Interior Design and an Art degree. During her time working as an Interior Designer, she allowed her mind to grow taking every chance to travel and work along side world-class designers. She worked on projects that were published in several national magazines including Veranda, Southern Living, and Southern Lady.
Through the years, Ellen watched as her family home became the only consistent place in her family's world. She attributes deep, loving memories to different rooms in the home. Whether it's a good sittin' chair, a family home, or something all together different, she wants those around her to be able to find their safe haven too. Nothing brings her quite as much joy as being able to aid in that process, so she has spent her professional career cultivating and challenging her strengths to that end.
