The announcement of the Elle Decor Modern Life Concept House had us thoroughly excited, and so we quite promptly set off to the High Line Park area to have a personal look. Elle Decor’s select “Designers to Watch” here are paired with leading modern brands, and we’re happy to report that these young designers came up with some truly stunning interiors—quite forward looking, in fact, while maintaining an appreciative eye to the past. The contrasting aesthetic within is refreshing and, perhaps not surprisingly, well balanced—this is an Elle Decor production after all!
I’m pictured (top) in Aurelien Gallet’s super sexy and richly atmospheric interior.
In rather stark contrast, I’m also photographed in a wonderfully ethereal room by Marie Turner.

The EDMLCH is only open until June 5th, so do make a point to see it ASAP and be sure to work in a nice stroll along the new extension to the High Line Park!
Oh, and it should be noted that while you are enjoying your visit, your ticket sales go to benefit Housing Works whose dual mission is to end homelessness and AIDS – We here at WIJW have always found the combination of altruism and fine design totally irresistible!
I’m sporting a wild mix of patterns—Gucci white and black window pane plaid silk/cotton jacket, navy linen pin stripe pants, black patent belt and loafers in black, white, and silver leather, Tom Ford shirt in a midnight cotton dotted herringbone print, Yves Saint Laurent silk paisley and camouflage print pocket square, Cartier “Tank Divan” from Raj Tolaram and my fragrance is Creed Imperial Millesime.
