Within moments of stepping into Stacy London's Brooklyn apartment, we felt completely at ease. It was airy, fluid, and filled with objects that seemed carefully considered, not staged by a decorator. It's common wisdom that a space's energy reveals much about its owner, and in this case, it couldn't be more true. We were totally smitten with London's easygoing nature — "Feel free to move anything around!" — and the way she talks about her home not just as a crash pad, but as a memory-filled sanctuary she's created in the 10 years she's lived there.
Fresh after the premiere of her new show Love, Lust or Run
(where she makes over women with extreme style), she was ready to spend some time in repose in her sacred space. She kindly chatted with us about style transformation, trying new things (swimming!), and her intense obsession with Etsy.
And, when her darling 18-year-old feline, Al, threw up on the couch, we watched with admiration as she handled it with the greatest aplomb. Three and a half hours later, we had enough transcripts and photos to write our biography. But, we didn't want to leave. Not so secretly, we're hoping to get invited back for one of her famed Game of Thrones
viewing parties. She makes a mean muddled gin cocktail.
