In her new book Home, Ellen DeGeneres takes readers inside her past and present properties and talks about what each one has taught her.

Since the 1990s, DeGeneres has bought and sold more than a dozen houses.
“When I’m in a room, I want everything I’m looking at to make me happy,” she told People. “I’ve gotten better over the years. This didn’t happen to me right away. I shop a lot and I study a lot and I look at a lot of books and magazines. I just learned what I like.”
In the book, DeGeneres shows photos of her previous places from her Santa Barbara villa to her mid-century Hombly Hills house. People got a look inside five of her houses.
“I’m actually a little nervous about how much I’m sharing,” she said. “But it’s important for people to see that this is really a genuine passion of mine, not just a business venture. I think people were kind of surprised, like ‘Ellen’s into design?!’ But everyone who knows me and who is in my life has known that for a long time,” she said.
With the HGTV show, Ellen’s Design Challenge, and her new line of home-furnishings, DeGeneres seems to be jumping right into the design world. Fortunately, she says that her wife Portia de Rossi has similar style.
“Portia’s into art deco more than I am, but she loves everything that we’re doing,” DeGeneres said. “We are having a hard time staying put. I keep trying to find a better home. But I’m happy. This is what I love to do.”
Home arrives in stores October 27.
