The instantly recognizable sound of Ty Pennington’s “Good Morning!” has become an unmistakable sign of hope for families and communities, as he has helped transform the lives of thousands, while inspiring millions more around the world.
Under the leadership of the charismatic home-design guru, Extreme Makeover: Home Edition was consistently rated among the top 20 of all television programs. It has won two Emmys for Outstanding Reality Program and two People’s Choice Awards.
In the fall of 2010, Pennington expanded his international appeal with two new series. Inside the Box with Ty Pennington, for Canada’s W Network, matches two amateur interior designers in a contest to decorate a room using only the contents of a mystery crate put together by Pennington. As part of his ongoing relationship with Great Britain’s UKTV Home, his latest series Homes for the Brave focuses on improving the homes and lives of soldiers who served in Afghanistan for the British Army.
Pennington first took his talent for mobilizing volunteers overseas to Great Britain for Ty’s Great British Adventure, a community-improvement series airing on UKTV Home. In addition to hosting, he was executive producer. Seasons 1 and 2 went on to become UKTV Home’s two highest rated television series ever.
Pennington recently launched a new fabric line, Ty Pennington Impressions with Westminster Fabrics. Available in a variety of prints, colors and fabrics, the line offers fun, versatile and easy ways to update your home décor.
Pennington continues his partnership with industry leader Howard Miller, designing new pieces for his Signature Home Furnishings by Ty Pennington. The line features high-quality, casual contemporary furniture that’s easily coordinated.
Ty Pennington Style is Pennington’s seasonal home décor line carried at Sears, offering fun and stylish home fashions at affordable prices. The line includes everything from bedding and rugs to lighting, dishware and patio furniture.
Pennington’s flooring Ty Pennington Collection for Lumber Liquidators is available in stores and online nationwide.
Pennington’s latest 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 up his New York Times best seller Ty’s Tricks (Hyperion), which is part reference and part behind-the-scenes in Ty’s own home, which he completely remodeled himself.
Pennington has been recognized as a leader in the field of volunteerism for his work on Extreme Makeover and Ty’s Great British Adventure. He also serves as ambassador for the Sears American Dream campaign. Ask Ty what makes him tick and he’ll say, “It’s about the joy of doing things for others. Extreme Makeover is about family, about America and about these random acts of kindness that can restore your faith in people.”
Pennington first won national attention as the quirky and creative carpenter on the groundbreaking home improvement series Trading Spaces.
