I’ve amassed a rather fabulous collection of books, and yes, I’m literally surrounded by them in every room of my apartment! In fact, a move may be needed in order to accommodate a proper library (one of my great dreams and desires). My books continue to provide me with endless stimulation, and are an integral part of my daily life—art, architecture, design, photography, travel, cuisine, gardening, history, etc.—it’s all here, ready to whisk me off to the world of my choosing. Hugely useful, they’ve become a truly indispensable tool for helping me to show clients a design direction they might not have considered, and WIJW utilizes our Slim Aarons section, for instance, to guide us in making our own iconic images!
Captured in my library/dining room with my new Tom Ford reading glasses (increased IQ guaranteed)—I’m thinking fashionable college professor or louche librarian in my Tom Ford camel hair and silk jacket with suede elbow patches worn with a pale yellow cashmere turtleneck sweater, J Brand “Kane” jeans, Gucci saddle leather tasseled loafers, vintage brown and camel silk pocket square, Rolex watch and my fragrance is Tom Ford Lavender Palm.
