>> Last year, Jessica Stam had an East Village apartment and no decorator — all her books were still in boxes. This year, she has a decorator who convinced her to move apartments — the last one had "no view, no charm, and insufficient space" — and now has a new apartment a few blocks over, full of purple, flowers, and with a look "like Indiana Jones had designed a Marriott." I'm not sure if that's good or not, but the October 2008 issue of Elle Decor has a full look inside, so you can decide yourself. She must have liked it; The same decorator is now working on her East Hampton home.
