Although she started as a fashion stylist, these days Estee Stanley is probably best known for her interiors. What started out as decorating advice and favors for celebrity friends blossomed into a very busy second career as Estee took on more and more home renovations and redesigns. Now clients seek her out when they are looking for her signature style of casual, practical elegance with a nod to European sensibilities. As cofounder of home decor collection HomeMint (with friend Justin Timberlake, ahem) and editor at large for Domaine Home, Estee Stanley has ensured that her fantastic eye is available to everyone, not just her celebrity clients.
