James Andrew - Duke of Decorating

One of my fantastic fans recently dubbed me “The Duke of Decorating,” and I have to say – I was tickled! Interior Design has been my life long passions and I’m so happy and blessed to be doing something that brings such joy. A well designed interior can really have a huge impact – soothing and nurturing frazzled souls. Not long ago I had a couple of very pleased clients tell me that when they moved back into their gorgeous Park Avenue apartment after a massive gut renovation and decoration, they felt like they were on Prozac! I really live to make this sort of difference. I’ve worked as a designer not only in New York City, but in London, Zurich, Los Angeles and even Bali – and while each job has a quite different set of specific requirements, fundamentally it’s all about creating spaces that enrich and elevate lives. So if I were to take a title, I’d be happy to be known as the Duke of Decorating!

Here I’m hailing a taxi cab to get me to a client meeting – feeling a bit “That girl” with the song “Native New Yorker” running through my head, I’m pairing an outrageous Gucci shearling jacket with amazing pops of color, shocking pink silk knit turtleneck sweater by Gucci, over sized silk paisley scarf in reds,brown, pinks and blues by Etro, purple skinny jeans by Diesel, red leather gloves by Sermoneta, brown leather “Chelsea” boots and brown suede and leather satchel both by Gucci and KVA sunglasses by Oliver Peoples.


  1. The ‘Prince of Paisley’ today Andrew!

  2. Such an exquisitely poised ‘Taxi!’ contrapposto has not been seen since 1983.
