Learn more about Eddie Ross, featured designer on HGTV's Celebrity Holiday Homes and Halloween Block Party.
A native of Greenwich, Conn., and graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, Eddie began his career working in television, first as a food editor on Martha Stewart Living and later as associate design director for all in-house production at Food Network.
After a two-year stint running his own catering company, where he continued to refine his skills in cooking and entertaining, Eddie made the move to publishing. As associate decorating editor at House Beautiful, he produced the popular “Weekend Shopper,” a monthly article in which he’d travel to flea markets around the country, giving new life to old things.
As the senior style editor of Martha Stewart Living, Eddie continued to inspire readers with clever ways of integrating vintage furniture and objects into clean, classic design. From decorating and entertaining to food styling and flowers, Eddie produced consistently elegant stories that related to a variety of people’s tastes and budgets.
In 2008, after an appearance on season two of Top Design, Eddie left the publishing world to start a lifestyle company, along with partner Jaithan Kochar. Based in upstate New York, Eddie Ross, Inc. offers styling services, guided flea-market shopping trips, and an online retailer featuring vintage tabletop and giftware. Together, they also produce a daily blog at eddieross.com with inspirational tips and information on how to cook, craft, decorate and entertain — both beautifully and affordably.
In October 2009, Eddie appeared on the HGTV special Halloween Block Party, in which he transformed the classic tale “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow ” into a beautiful, budget-friendly party to remember.
