WIJW was originally conceived of as a promotional tool for my interior design business. Certainly I was inspired by Kelly Wearstler’s delicious Domicilium Decoratus (a book that, among other things, contains numerous pics of the lovely Wearstler wearing fine couture in her Beverly Hills home). When I first beheld her book I thought that it was the most blatant act of self promotion I’d ever seen and, well…I LOVED it! I knew I wanted to do something similar to celebrate my own work as an interior designer and somehow combine that with my interest in personal style. Of course, I’m excited by quite a few other topics and I think we’ve managed to successfully combine many of these loves into what we do here at WIJW — in fact, it’s an easy thing since so many roads lead back to interior design and fashion, whether it be, art, books, travel, food, health, what have you! We here at WIJW also like to incorporate the idea of living a more elevated life — we’re much more than fine design, we’re interested in how to live well in the midst of the finer things — the total picture, as we like to say.

This has all brought about some pretty superb opportunities to showcase many of my actual projects and hopefully to convey my comfort with different design idioms. Pictured above, for instance, is an example of an interior I made for a client’s 1890s town house in New York City — we’ve created an opulent bohemian feel with a touch of international arts and crafts aesthetic. As you can see there is lots of chintz and oriental textiles, mixed in with marvelous pieces from around the world — a modern day grand tour if you will.

Do peruse the James Andrew Interior Design site. If you like what you see, keep me in mind should you or friends need some help taking your vision to the next level!

    This particular image reminds me of some pictures I saw of the home of Hamish Bowles, in VOGUE…

    Also of the old Oatsie Charles house in Georgetown, by Mrs. Parish.

    All the best in 2015 !

    Darling Karena,

    I hope you are pyschic – seems to be that is the plan for 2015- great things!!!

    There is something so rich and wonderful about a well curated collection of things – gives one the feeling of a world traveler living with the memories of distant lands.

    Hope your 2015 is off to a spectacular start!

    Cheers and Many Thanks for your tremendous support!

    My Dear Michael Hampton,

    Thank You!

    This really is a celebration of so many things that seem to have gone out of fashion – but for me not being one who follows fashion – it feels fresh and right for today or 30 years from now.
