Ellen DeGeneres may grace our TV screens every afternoon (and our Facebook feeds whenever an adorable 5-year-old points out Russia on a map), but did you know that she also has quite the interior design background? With over a dozen renovations, a stunning home featured in Architectural Digest, a design show on HGTV, and even a home décor book under her belt, her decorating credentials rival some of the most prolific interior designers.

And she can now add two more credits to her ever-growing list of accomplishments in this arena: a furniture collaboration with Thomasville and a new rug and accessories collection for Loloi (not yet available in Australia, but, we're hopeful that will change soon). "My collection for Thomasville is inspired by the furniture I have in my own home," the TV host told MyDomaine. "I thought there was a need for more pieces that are functional but stylish, and I wanted to help people find that. Also, I needed a new end table."

While DeGeneres was clearly made for TV, decorating has always played an integral part in her life: "I've loved interior design for as long as I can remember," she told us. "I moved around a lot growing up, and I was always fascinated by the different styles of houses I lived in. Like most young children, I spent a lot of time weighing the pros and cons of wood paneling." Always equipped with her quick wit, DeGeneres answered MyDomaine's rapid-fire questionnaire on all things décor.

Curious to know her top decorating tips or the mistakes she always notices in other people's homes? Keep reading, because Ellen DeGeneres is about to tell all.
