How old is Sophie Stanbury?

Sophie Stanbury is 48 years old. Several sources confirm that she was born on December 28, 1975. Her birth sign is Capricorn and she belongs to the Caucasian ethnic group.

Sophie Stanbury was born in Denmark to British parents, a fact that confirms her dual citizenship. By birth, she is Danish but by parental and ancestral heritage, there is no doubt that she is British.

Although she was born in Denmark, Sophie spent most of her formative years in London, United Kingdom. Not much is known about her birth family members, including her parents or any siblings she might have had.

The Ladies of London star attended St. George’s Weybridge College for her secondary school education. Afterward, she attended Brighton University, although the details of her course of study are unknown at present. Her passion for interior design and decoration prompted a decision to hone her skills at the prestigious Inchbald School of Design.

What does Sophie Stanbury do?

Sophie Stanbury is an interior design specialist, entrepreneur, and reality TV star. Before she caught the attention of the public on Ladies of London, Sophie was already killing it as an interior design specialist.

Prior to establishing herself as an interior decorator, Sophie made ends meet successfully at one of the world’s largest hedge funds. After a few years,  she decided to work at London’s forty-plus-year-old exclusive members’ club, Annabel’s. Her time there enabled her to become firmly integrated into the London social scene.

With her then-newly acquired social capital and the valuable experience she gained during her time studying at the Inchbald School of Design, Sophie established her interior design business, Sophie Stanbury Interiors Ltd., in 2010.

She began by designing interiors for residential and commercial spaces. It is important to establish the fact that Sophie’s vision to own her own interior design business was born while she was heading up the designers’ relations team at Swarovski where she was working with designers in fashion, stage and screen, lighting, jewelry, and product design.

Running her own business has also earned her the privilege of being appointed as a senior in-house designer for Ventura Design which has a flagship showroom at the Design Centre at Chelsea Harbour.

Arlene McIntyre, Creative Director of Ventura expressed the company’s delight in having Sophie join their team of designers calling her a highly creative and dynamic designer committed to the Ventura aesthetic. She further intoned that her social media presence was an advantage and inspiration to them.

In 2015, Sophie ventured into reality television when she became one of the new cast members in the second season of the much-acclaimed Bravo reality TV series Ladies of London. Her presence on the show provided a unique perspective on her life and personality. Sophie was on the show from the inception of the second season until the end of the third season which wrapped in February 2017.

The producers of the show opted not to renew the series for a fourth season and to date, Sophie’s involvement in Ladies of London remains her sole gig in a reality television series.

Is Sophie from Ladies of London Married?

The unfettered short answer to that question at the moment is no. At the time of writing Sophie Stanbury is not married. The more complex answer to that question is that the 48-year-old entrepreneur is divorced, and has been divorced since 2017.

Prior to that, the CEO was married to Alex Stanbury, who is the brother of fellow Ladies of London star Caroline Stanbury. The former couple was introduced to each other by Caroline in what was meant to be a passing fling, as Caroline herself later admitted.

Nevertheless, their time together became more than they anticipated and they ended up getting married. Their marriage produced 2 sons, Harry and Finn Stanbury before they called time on the union in 2017.

What does Alex Stanbury do?

Born Alexander George Basil Stanbury on September 30, 1978, Sophie Stanbury’s ex-husband is currently the CEO of Black River Petroleum Corp, a Nashville-based company in the oil and gas sector. He has been in this position since the tail end of 2012 but has held many high executive positions prior to donning his current mantle.

He is also the President, Chief Executive Officer, Chief Financial Officer, Secretary, Treasurer, and Director of American Copper Corp., a position he has held since December 17, 2012. Before that, he served as Associate Director with the London-based investment bank Dawnay, Day Corporate Finance Limited.

Alex comes from an old-money empire. He is an heir to the influential Vestey family. His dad, Anthony David Stanbury is an investment banker while his mom Elizabeth Alice Beale is a businesswoman.

What is Sophie Stanbury doing now?

Sophie expanded her portfolio in 2020 to include utilizing her well-honed interior design skills across a number of UK projects for a successful Dublin-based company, which specializes in a turn-key service for projects across the residential and commercial sectors.

She is currently based in London where she has been bringing her classic contemporary aesthetic to projects since 2010. She insists on getting the most out of her clients’ living and entertaining spaces so that they are stylish, contemporary, and above all comfortable.

Her recent projects include Boutique Baller in Mayfair, and residential homes in London, Surrey, and Lancashire and is currently working on the next Boutique Baller store in the Middle East.
