Luminous Interiors by Brian J. McCarthy

Luminous Interiors

I’m thrilled to be sharing Brian J. McCarthy’s brilliant book, Luminous Interiors. McCarthy’s aesthetic is rooted in the ethos of Parish-Hadley where quality, innovation, elegance and livability were of utmost importance. Albert Hadley encouraged curiosity, and a desire to continually refine one’s sensibilities. Like Hadley, Brian McCarthy traveled far and wide in search of the most talented artisans. A self-described “constant student” he has built upon every experience. He’s created truly sublime interiors throughout the world, and now you can see many of his most exclusive gems here in this rich volume, Luminous Interiors. The book is an utter inspiration—and certainly it’s a must-have addition to your design library! Buy your copy on Amazon here: Luminous Interiors: The Houses of Brian McCarthy

So many illuminati of the design world have arisen from the firm Parish-Hadley; iconic designers like Bunny Williams, David Kleinberg, and Brian J.McCarthy to name a few. Needless to say, I’m honored to have shared in this great design legacy during my own time working with Albert Hadley!

I stopped by Brian J. McCarthy and Danny Sager’s New York home for an intimate Hadley reunion and to celebrate McCarthy’s publication. I’m sporting a Tom Ford era Gucci red leather biker jacket, Tom Ford brown corduroy pants and brown leather tasseled loafers, Uniqlo brown cashmere turtleneck sweater, Etro silk paisley scarf, Rolex watch and my fragrance is Tom Ford Oud.
