Ellen Hamilton

Alternate Text
A quick glance at Ellen Hamilton’s work is enough to reveal a designer deeply committed to the decorative arts. What you don’t see are the piles of books that inform each project and the intensive research and wild inspiration that follow. Drawing on everything from the Convent of San Marco to The Thin Man, her projects reflect a perennial student dedicated to and enchanted by the complexity of design. Her deeply considered process of translation, iteration, and innovation is one that has made for profound client relationships as she dives into their vision to expand both their base knowledge as well as her own. Engaging with the unique history of each property, her projects honor the past to bend and shape a home for our time—so that these extraordinary spaces can continue to live on in the present. Her dedication to education, history, and community has taken the form of The Brooklyn Designer Showhouse, which she founded in 2017 with a focus on championing emerging talent and encouraging intellectual curiosity in the design industry. Hamilton’s work has been featured in Veranda, Luxe, Vogue Living Australia, Elle Decor, Galerie, House Beautiful, and other leading design publications.
