As an interior designer, I’m often called upon to take on many other less defined roles. We’ve mentioned, I often act as art advisor, but my role often extends well beyond being a decorator; in fact, I work with many of my clients and a network of realtors to pinpoint the perfect home when need be—essentially acting as a real estate advisor. I’m able to save all involved a great deal of time and effort, since I’m preeminently qualified to assess what one can do, decoratively as well as architecturally, with a space. I can then determine if a space is worth actually showing my client.
I spent the day today with a very special client and a realtor friend exploring New York City’s Financial District (think old-school Gotham). We saw several possibilities with some solid investment potential, and I look forward to sharing the whole process here on WIJW; from finding the perfect place, to renovation, and finally to decoration!
Exploring downtown, I’m sporting a Tom Ford era Gucci black cotton corduroy jacket and black and white striped cotton shirt, Ralph Lauren ivory cotton cable knit shawl collared cardigan and black alligator belt with sterling buckle, Le Noued Papillion off white and black polka dot silk ascot, J Brand Kane jean, Pierre Hardy cobalt suede demi boots, vintage Rolex, Tom Ford “Marco” sunglasses and my fragrance is Lorenzo Villoresi, Garafano. Its base of carnation, rose, and geranium has me feeling like a modern day dandy.
