A 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 decorating and entertaining, Eddie made the move to publishing. As Associate Decorating Editor at House Beautiful, he produced the popular “Weekend Shopper,” a monthly article for which he’d travel to flea markets around the country, giving new life to old things.
For one story, Eddie found antique corbels from an old church in Richmond, painted them white, then used them for bed hangings.
As the Senior Style Editor of Martha Stewart Living, Eddie continued to inspire readers with clever ways of integrating new and vintage furniture and objects into clean, classic design. From decorating and entertaining to food styling and flowers, Eddie produced consistently beautiful stories that related to a variety of people’s tastes and budgets. For a story on decorating with wallpaper, Eddie painted a reproduction secretary a glossy yellow, then hung faux bois paper in watermelon on the interior.
In 2008, after appearing on season two of Bravo's Top Design, Eddie took a brief hiatus from publishing to co-found a lifestyle company with partner Jaithan Kochar, a graduate of Stanford University and the Rhode Island School of Design.
Based in northwest Connecticut, Eddie Ross is a design studio and creative marketing consultancy, offering interior design, styling and event production services targeting print and social media. With columns in two of the most widely circulated magazines in the country, Woman's Day and Southern Living, together with a daily blog on decorating and entertaining beautifully and affordably, Eddie Ross leverages its unique position as a design studio with a voice, creating for its clients a compelling combination of both beauty and awareness.

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. Shortly thereafter, he appeared on Celebrity Holiday Homes, another HGTV special in which he decorated Kathie Lee Gifford's house for the holidays.
