A DAY FOR DECORATING

James Andrew

With all of the holiday festivities lately, I’ve found myself a bit behind in my design work, making the weekend a perfect time for some much needed design oriented catch-up.

A Sunday jour du décoration recently found me at The Antiques Centers in Stamford Connecticut—they’re a veritable treasure trove of surprising objects—an East Coast American Marché aux Puces of sorts (though I might be romanticizing this a wee bit). Generally I find that regardless of how much money a client may have, everyone has a budget. That being said, a few trips to Stamford go a long way toward helping me stay within said budget!

Returning from a productive jaunt in Stamford, I’m photographed at Grand Central Station here in NYC and I’m sporting a Tom Ford “Buckingham” jacket in black and ink wool check damier twill, purple cashmere turtleneck, Uniqlo jean, Tom Ford era Gucci black suede “Belgian Shoe” style loafers, Rolex, purple leather Hildestahl bag, and my fragrance is Creed Royal Oud.

  1. James,

    You look stunning as always. I love that jacket! So glad to see you promoting the idea of antiques- which have fallen somewhat out of fashion- and to offer such value to the clients- The late Robert Metzger often created collections for his clients that increased significantly in appraised value over the years, a great investment!

    Dear Dean,

    Yes- as you know- I love all design idioms!

    So antiques become an important part of what I am creating for my clients.

    Cheers

    My Dear Charles Allen,

    So happy to hear we are providing you with a bit of inspiration- that is what life is about after all – sharing exquisite experiences and making the world a better place for all.

    I do occasionally make it to Florida- mostly Miami and the Palm Beach area.

    Will Keep you posted if I am ever in the Daytona Beach area!

    Cheers and Many Thanks
