Stella McCartney's Notting Hill Home: 'Blah and Bland'? (House of the Day)

Stella McCartney, the daughter of Beatles great Paul McCartney, is famous for her sense of style. In fact, the fashion bigwig's company designed the gear of Team Great Britain for the Olympics, according to Time magazine.

That makes the attention her London townhouse has recently received somewhat ironic: The apartment has taken heat for being rather dull. One commenter claimed it was "blah and bland," according to The Daily Mail.

Regardless, we think it's safe to say that McCartney's digs still have a lot going for them. Touted as a home well-suited for entertaining, it has a raised ground floor and a kitchen that leads out to a patio enclosed by vine-covered lattices.

Interior features of the home, located in the posh London neighborhood of Notting Hill, include soaring ceilings, hardwood floors, period fireplaces and floor-to-ceiling windows. Despite its alleged lack of pizzaz, the 2,000-square-foot interior does have what we'd consider a rather stylish flourish: There's a bathtub in the living room.

Bob Crowley of Bective Leslie Marsh has the listing.
