Ty Pennington        

Television Personality, Home Makeover Guru & Author

Ty Pennington first garnered national attention as the quirky and creative carpenter on the groundbreaking home improvement series "Trading Spaces." Later as host of "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition," Pennington helped transform the lives of hundreds while inspiring millions more around the world to volunteer their time to help others.

His career has provided him with the opportunity to host of a multitude of shows on TLC, HGTV, Hulu, the Food Network and ABC as he traveled the country breathing new life into the heart and homes of many communities. He even took his building and design skills internationally with "Ty’s Great British Adventure!"

Pennington has been recognized as a leader in the field of volunteerism for his work on "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" and his role with Abod Shelters, an international charity that provides sustainable, humane housing for homeless and impoverished city dwellers, and recently in the rescue and revitalization of our ocean's coral reefs with the Plant a Million Corals project.

In addition to his extensive television work, Ty is recognized for his design expertise and style. He launched the Ty Pennington Impressions fabric line with Westminster Fabrics, a flooring line with Lumber Liquidators, and Pennington’s Ty Pennington Style was one of the most popular brands at Sears for 16 consecutive years. His latest collaboration can be found nationwide within At Home stores where you can bring Ty’s designs into your home with artwork, furniture, and a variety of textiles and décor that show off his style.

As an author Pennington’s book "How Good Design Can Change Your Life" (Simon & Schuster) is an intimate look at Ty’s design inspirations with décor advice and tips. It followed his New York Times bestseller "Ty’s Tricks" (Hyperion), which is part reference and part behind-the-scenes in Pennington’s own home, which he completely remodeled himself. And his most recent book "Life to the Extreme" details his initial struggle with, and story on how he overcame, the challenges of living with ADHD.

In 2018, Pennington reunited with the cast of "Trading Spaces" for a new season of episodes on TLC. Most recently he can be seen on HGTV’s "Rock the Block," "Battle on the Beach," and you can never be sure where else he might pop up!

He currently resides in Florida, New York, and Georgia; in homes that he either built or remodeled himself.
