SCOTT MCBEE’S PRE-DECOR MAISONETTE – PHOTOGRAPHS BY LARSON HARLEY

As you all may have gathered if you’ve followed WIJW for a while, I am wild about working with the endlessly talented Larson Harley – he has the most exquisite eye and certainly has captured me and some of these fresh pre-decoration interiors in the most wonderful way! Later we’ll have Scott McBee’s decorated rooms ready to showcase in one of my favorite magazines. It’ll be an opportunity to share my design/decor work as well as to present artist McBee’s artwork amidst his own ravishing rooms!

Perhaps my appearance in so many photos here is a bit redundant, but I hope my presence will give you some sense of the grand scale of this marvelous maisonette. I can’t tell you how very thrilled we are to see the culmination of our combined efforts completed. It has been a rather laborious but gratifying process. With the help of our brilliant architect Ron Czajka and masterful builder New Moon Construction, we’ve created something we’re all quite proud of!

At this point I will most likely only share a tease here and there of the decoration progress – saving the final reveal for serious print publication!

Do keep Larson Harley in mind for all your photographic needs – whether they be fashion, Interiors, gardens, architecture or whatever you have in mind!

For my photos in Scott McBee’s maisonette, I’m sporting a Tom Ford ocean blue wool/silk melange suite, brown and white check shirt, brown leather tasseled loafers, silk plaid tie in browns, ivory, and blue, Seaman Schepps pearl and pale blue sapphire cuff links, Hermes Cape Cod Deux Zones watch, brown and blue silk Charvet pocket square, Tom Ford Oud fragrance, and a bit of Tom Ford Bronzing Gel for a sun kissed glow.

    James!

    Stunning refined “shell” for a chic and urbane gentleman- I was reminded of the 2 E 70 PH of the late Teddy Forstmann- where Parkin Saunders specified boiserie for the drawing room done in Roll Royce lacquer same color you show here (tete de negre) so elegant!

    I believe that David Kleinberg recently re-designed the PH for some old clients of his- (see First dibs)

    Congrats on a job well done – I know that your mentor Albert would be so proud of you!
