I was super excited when I found out that friend and celebrity fashion stylist Leah Taylor was going to be on a new tv series! I’ve been knowing Leah for quite awhile and she is also a fellow Clevelander that transitioned here to Atlanta. She has styled me a few times as well!
Her brother is well-known fashion photographer Robert Ector. I thought it was such a great concept how the producers combined her expertise in fashion with house sitting in these luxury homes to the stars and made a show out of it! The show is called, “Celebrity House Sitting” and it will air this Friday on Design Network (check your local listings). Slide inside to find out what Leah had to say about joining the show, her favorite home she got to house sit in and so much more! Have a great day everyone!
Tell us how you got involved with this Celebrity House Sitting show?
I got involved with Celebrity House Sitting due to Crazy Legs Production based in Atlanta. One of their casting directors Daniel (who knows me from my fashion styling work) reached out to me and told me he had the perfect opportunity for me, he then pitched me to The Design Network & they Loved me!
What was one of the most memorable homes that you got to house sit for and why?
The Most memorable home was the Home of NFL Star Hines Ward from Pittsburgh Steelers. His home was so beautiful & basically my dream home. The Views were breathtaking & the pool area was perfect for entertaining I didn’t want to leave lol! He also won Dancing with the Stars & had the trophy right in his living room, that trophy was far more cooler then his Super Bowl Trophy!! I couldn’t help but to get a selfie with it!!
I know that you are a celebrity fashion stylist, how did you get started styling people?
I got my start styling early on & took high interest in all things fashion. Moved to Atlanta & my family and I opened up Taylor Ector Studios which was a Fashion & Photography studio here in Atlanta. Word got out that we were the go to team in Atlanta for tasteful, creative, fashionable, quality work & the rest was history.
How does fashion and interior design mesh together in your opinion?
Fashion & Interior Design mesh together in my opinion because it’s really all about an individuals personal style. Most people who are stylish have quite stylish homes. Most people who are more simple tend to have very simplistic taste when it comes to their homes. So it’s all about how you express your self visually whether it’s apparel or home decor.
What’s next for you? Do you guys plan on doing another season of the show?
I’m starting to see that being on screen & hosting Celebrity House Sitting on the Design Network has sparked my interest in hosting and wanting to be in front of the camera STYLING MYSELF lol. I Would love this to turn into a spot on E channel to do fashion segments & red carpet interviews for big awards shows!! Maybe even host a fashion based talk show. But yes season 2 is in the works. No show on TV is like this! So tune in Celebrity House Sitting Friday 1/24 at 8pm/7pm central.
Celebrity House Sitting will air this Friday, January 24th at 8/7c on Design Network
