Ellen DeGeneres Is Launching Something That Will Make You Want to Dance
As if having Caitlyn Jenner, Malala and Hillary Clinton all stopping by the premiere week of her talk show wasn’t enough, Ellen DeGeneres just revealed some news that will get you on your feet dancing. She’s releasing a line of shoes. Yep, after debuting her lifestyle brand ED by Ellen at the beginning of the summer and recently launching her collab with GapKids the talk show host is taking a dive even further down the design route with casual footwear.
Through a partnership with fashion giant Camuto Group (brands include Jessica Simpson, Tory Burch, BCBGMAXAZRIA and Lucky Brand), Ellen will launch a line of kicks featuring materials like leather, suede, denim, canvas and linen. With that amount of options — on what we’re assuming is a range of styles from suit-worthy high-tops to slip-ons you can rock with your favorite athleisure pieces — there’s sure to be an option for every person looking to
walk dance in Ellen’s shoes. Like the clothing she released in her ED line, these sneaks aren’t cheap: the styles reportedly will run you between $80 and $300. But if we can take a cue from Ellen’s style, they’ll be modern, chic stand up to the work-to-wherever wear. In other words, they’re probably totally worth it.
Ellen’s shoe line is set to drop this spring, but if you can’t wait till then to snag some ED pieces make your way to the ED pop-up debuting this NYFW at Bergdorf Goodman through September 22. Fingers crossed she’ll make an appearance rocking some new ED pieces like she did at August’s Teen Choice Awards.
Looking for even more Ellen inspo in your life? The pro interior decorator is launching a home design book in October titled Home. No need to be skeptical about the tips she’s got to offer: the book’s description reveals the comedian has bought and renovated nearly a dozen homes over the last 25 years. What can’t Ellen do?!

Pocket doors are so delightful in and of themselves. They appear when you need them, get tucked away when you don't, and make it easy to define rooms while keeping an open floor plan. Add to the pocket door a joyful patterned wallpaper surprise, and you will be sent right into fits of visual jubilation! Or something ;) Today we're sharing two simple and impactful pocket door makeovers that zhuzh up your space in a jiffy.
Anjelika Temple here, co-founder of Brit + Co and proud owner of several pocket doors! When I moved into my first real grown-up house a couple years ago, I knew I wanted to incorporate wallpaper so reached out to our friends at Chasing Paper to see how we might collaborate. It felt like a total lightbulb moment when I realized I could create a surprise pop of pattern on a couple sets of pocket doors.
Not only is it a whimsical way to bring color into a space, but the doors double as picture-perfect backdrops for all your SFH (selfies from home, obvs).
A few pro tips about install:
- Removable wallpaper is miraculously forgiving! You can take it on and off multiple times without it losing integrity (or mucking up your surface).
- I ordered this adhesive wallpaper installation kit with a squeegee and xacto knife and it worked super well. I also recommend a sharp pair of scissors for cutting longer lines.
- This is a two-person job! Get a friend, put on a playlist, and get ready to bond.
- Wild, organic patterns like Tally are great because it's challenging to spot any imperfections in pattern alignment; keep pattern choice in mind if you've got a lot of corners to match up. More geometric patterns and larger shapes leave less room for error (but are awesome in their own right!).
BATHROOM POCKET DOORS
In our primary bathroom, we chose the wallpaper pattern Tally, designed by Kelly Ventura, in White and Navy. In our space, the navy reads as a soft black, which is perfect for the space. It's easy to combine an ever-rotating collection of linens with the Tally pattern.
I love how the white trim becomes the perfect frame around this pocket door piece of art.
My favorite moment in this space is the fact that you actually get a third pop of pattern thanks to our serendipitously placed mirror!
And yes, this one works pretty darn well as a backdrop too ;)
LIVING ROOM DOUBLE DOORS
This set of doors is definitely a focal point of our home. It separates our living room from our primary bedroom which opens onto our backyard. The doors are pretty much always open, but when they're closed we wanted to evoke a fun, nature-inspired vibe. With that in mind, we selected the Lines and Moons pattern by Thimblepress in Green and Brown.
Earth mama vibes up in here! I love how the shapes and colors echo the ferns you see through the windows and the acorn wood details throughout the house.
Love this pattern moment, and xacto-ing out the door handle is def on the oddly satisfying DIY list.
For a pattern lover like me, I love that now I have this instant photo backdrop!
