Before and After: Ellen Pompeo's Dramatic Trailer Makeover

You’ve seen her homes on the covers of the world’s biggest décor magazines, but actress Ellen Pompeo has been keeping a big design secret. Her trailer on the lot of Grey’s Anatomy looked more like a hideout scene from Breaking Bad than the space you’d expect one of TV’s most in-demand actresses to relax in between takes. “It was depressing,” Pompeo recalls of the small mobile unit shed inhabited since the debut of ABC’s long-running hit drama. “I’ve been in that trailer for 10 years and needed a functional workspace,” the design-loving actress told us when first seeking advice from myself and Domaine’s editor-at-large, Estee Stanley.
