Grey’s Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo shows us around her modern barn in the Hamptons. Ellen Pompeo’s Sag Harbor Home Is a Modern Take on a Classic Barn.
The Grey’s Anatomy actress embraces the history of the Hamptons. Pompeo purchased the property eight years ago, while pregnant with her daughter Stella.
The plan was to turn the cabin into the guest house and build a larger main house next door, but the main residence took a backseat to a different project: a beach house on the West Coast.
With construction finished on the guest house—which would now have to function as the main house—Pompeo set out to tackle the decorating process. Working with a fraction of the footprint she’d imagined for the main house would be a challenge.
Ellen reconnected with Estee Stanley, a principal of California-based Hancock Design along with Brigette Romanek, whose clients include Rachel Zoe, Chris Evans, Jessica Biel, and Pompeo’s Grey’s Anatomy co-star Patrick Dempsey, that she decided to finalize the design process on the Sag Harbor home.
Stanley and her design partner, Brigette Romanek, used a mix of custom pieces (which they shipped to the Hamptons) and local finds including multiple antiques to outfit Pompeo’s home. Wyeth Home, in Sagaponack, and Ruby Beets, in Sag Harbor, are two of their favorites. “I love the partners at Ruby Beets. We got in there and chitchat and shop. They remind us of us,” says Romanek. The layered rugs were found at Lawrence of La Brea, and the mirror on the left wall was custom made by Hancock Design.
The navy couch was custom made by Hancock Design, the sconces are from Circa Lighting.
Hancock Design does a litany of custom pieces for clients, and in the foyer, a wood banquet from Bloom in Sag Harbor curves around a coffee table from Wyeth.
