WHAT IS JAMES WEARING? Rotating Header Image

Interior Couture

James Andrew in a Jean Nouvel space.

I approach my interior design projects as a couturier. I tailor a concept for each client that fits their taste and lifestyle as I would the most perfectly fitted garment – luxuriously comfortable custom designed upholstered furniture – custom designed fabrics and carpets – every detail, highly considered. I bring together brilliant artisans, builders, painters and valuable resources I’ve collected over the years to create truly bespoke rooms. It really gives me such immense pleasure creating these spaces for my clients and seeing the transformation that takes place.

I recently had the opportunity to visit the most spectacular penthouse. My friend, and Douglas Elliman agent, Philp Tabor (who works with the brilliant Holly Parker team) gave me a tour of this master piece by Jean Nouvel – the perfect blank canvas – ready for me to take to that sublime level! More about Nouvel Chelsea in an upcoming post as we bring some of the most important real estate to WIJW.

I’m sporting a mint green cotton twill suit by Gucci, Tom Ford shirt in pale blue cotton with french cuffs and contrast white collar and brown suede tasseled loafers, Seaman Schepps cuff links are silver pearls with pale blue sapphires, python belt with silver buckle by Gucci, pocket square in white linen with pale blue embroidered borders from Baumons my fragrance is Creed Royal Water.

    What a great way to relate interior design. I always have doubted myself when it comes to interior design, but this gives me a new perspective to look at things.

    Great space, looking forward to see how that space will evolve after the JA magic.

    If I saw that suit on a rack, my first thought would be that it was a left-over from the Miami Vice-collection.. But you make it work in a very contemporary way. Great job, James!

    Oh the glamour of a NYC penthouse ! I love the way you are striking a pose here. I find the relationship between real estate and interior design most interesting.
