Ellen Pompeo already lives a life that many of us envy. After all, she plays the lead character, Dr. Meredith Gray, on the hit show, Grey’s Anatomy. She even got to lock lips with McDreamy. Who wouldn’t love that?
But did you know that Pompeo is also a real estate and design enthusiast? She has done her share of real estate transformations. For example, the improvements that she made to her LA villa were showcased in Architectural Digest. It is safe to say that this actress speaks the language of décor and is a whiz at assembling the right furnishings for an exquisite look.
Pompeo has something else to make us green with envy – her recently renovated Hollywood set trailer that she uses while she’s has downtime on the show. She spent a decade’s worth of downtime in a cramped, dingy trailer that looked like something you would see on Breaking Bad. Understandably, Pompeo decided that it was time for a change. Here it is before the transformation:
She consulted with some décor savvy experts so to complete a total overhaul of her 150 square foot trailer. She needed the space to function primarily as a workstation so she could handle calls and have meetings. But she also needed a play area for her kids, a wardrobe room, and a lounge so that her friends could relax.
Pompeo’s trailer went through a complete transformation; from drab to fab. She and the design experts added bold metallics, bright whites, and heaps of natural light. She also painted the ceilings, walls, and cabinets white and used darker colors to accent the space. The paint was the most cost-efficient change and it made the biggest impact on the small space.
They put every every inch of the trailer to use. For example, they added a comfortable bed, extra seating, a soft rug for a durable floor covering, and a bar cart. The bar cart was inspired and added some mixed-metal bling that does an efficient job of hiding ugly electronic boxes.
Despite the limited square footage, the makeover was beautiful. The stylish accessories and extra seating turned the dingy trailer into the epitome of luxury. It can no longer be called depressing.
Although many of the furniture shown in the pictures came from higher end stores, it is easy to find low price substitutes. Hopefully, the jaw dropping pictures provide you with some trailer décor inspiration. Happy Designing!
