"TYLER ELLIS'S CHIC HOME BRINGS EUROPEAN STYLE TO LOS ANGELES..." - AD
“It felt like a little piece of Europe that landed in the center of L.A. We loved the traditional architecture and wanted to keep it serious and sophisticated, but on the inside we wanted to give it a more youthful character..." - Tyler Ellis
Handbag designer Tyler Ellis is the daughter of American fashion icon Perry Ellis and television writer and producer Barbara Gallagher, and much like her late father, she has a taste for what might best be described as modern classics—a deftly calibrated mix of simple, timeless lines and contemporary panache. The style applies not only to her own luxury creations—a staple of Hollywood’s endless red-carpet parade—but also to the chic, breezy Brentwood home she shares
with her husband, investor Benjamin Shriner. Seduced by the property’s French-inflected, classical-meets-Deco architecture and its abundant Italian cypresses, the two purchased the house five years ago and called upon its original architect, William Hefner, and Ellis’s longtime interior designers, the Los Angeles–based AD100 firm The Archers, to reinvent the place to reflect the young couple’s taste and spirit.
