on finding decorating inspiration

This bedroom from the Kips Bay Decorator Showhouse 2014 is one of our favorite looks from Ellie Cullman. Shimmering walls and luxe textures have us pining for a retreat of our own just like it.

Ellie’s Tip: “You never know where you’ll find inspiration, so be open to anything. The rose gold Cartier bangle that I wear every day inspired me to create the metallic palette of this sexy bedroom.”

on working with a small  home office

The theme of this sophisticated home office/dressing room was influenced by the vintage fashion photographs from Paris that hang on the walls. Ellie complements the photos with an Andre Arbus-style desk and an embroidered cashmere throw in the style of Armand-Albert Rateau.

Ellie’s Tip: “If you’re working with tight space in your home office, position the desk to be perpendicular to the wall. This frees up valuable space for built-ins and allows two people to work at the desk.”

on keeping the children's room tidy

Ellie designed this bunk room for a client’s grandchildren at their vacation home in Palm Beach. She tastefully created a subtle nautical theme fit with porthole references in the bed rails and cabinet door woodwork, as well as with fish motif and striped pillows.

Ellie’s Tip: “Remember, “kids will be kids.” In order for their rooms to always look tidy, ensure an easy cleanup plan. In this room, I included deep drawers under the beds, closed cabinets and large bins so toys and clothes could be hastily put away and out of sight.”
