Although Ellen has worked on Wall Street for twenty-five years, her friends and family have always counted on her for help with interior decorating. It just came naturally and it was something she loved to do. In 2016, she founded Staging With Style, a home staging company serving New York City.
A native New Yorker, Ellen was fortunate to be raised with good taste and design sense. One of her impressionable childhood memories was the family’s interior decorator from W & J Sloan, an upscale furniture store in midtown Manhattan. Even though her mother had impeccable taste, she never made a decorating decision without consulting this design expert.
Having a keen eye for design and quality, Ellen also loves to shop and explore all kinds of stores in New York City as well as abroad. She gets creative inspiration from color, fabrics and style and loves the process of experimenting with furniture placement and mixing existing pieces with accessories, colorful accent walls or vintage finds from flea markets.
ABOUT STAGING WITH STYLE
Since real estate has also been Ellen’s passion, she is a licensed real estate agent with Level Group, a full-service New York City real estate brokerage company located in the heart of midtown Manhattan. In addition, having bought and sold her own home in various neighborhoods of Manhattan, Ellen understands that buying a home is an emotional experience and for most people, the biggest expenditure of their life.
