New York Spaces: Celebrate Holiday House Hamptons' Extended Dates

Chad James was highlighted in New York Spaces, The Home Design Magazine of Metropolitan New York. 

"Chad's room immediately caught our eye with the juxtaposition between the dark wood-paneling and the use of contemporary art and décor pieces. Chad, who chose May Day as his holiday, said, "The room was dark, I wanted to lighten up the space and add a touch of springtime whimsy fitting for a Hamptons home." He combined masculine elements with a nod to femininity, integrating a neutral color palette with hints of lilac.A prime example of this blend can be seen in his use of the stately masculine antique Continental Mahogany Table used with a feminine-esque art deco bench. Both pieces were provided by Newel, the decorative arts gallery in New York."

Billboard: That Ain't No Shed! Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan and More Country Stars With Palatial Party Barns

Chad James was recently highlighted on Billboard.com in a story about country stars' party barns. His work with country's Luke Bryan was referenced.

"Like many, Bryan’s barn, which took its inspiration from Tennessee’s famed restaurant and hotel Blackberry Farm, embraces Southern history and heritage. In creating the space, interior designer Chad James sourced antique lumber from a shuttered factory in Georgia for the structure and reclaimed cobblestone from a street in Charleston, S.C., for flooring. “They want it to look like it has been there a while and not made in China yesterday,” says James of the barn owners with whom he has worked. (He has designed five party barns in the last few years.) The Bryan space was further customized with indoor sleeping quarters and a stage for impromptu musical performances, and accented with an 18th-century Italian chandelier and a number of Bryan’s hunting trophies."

"Elliott sat down with architectural and interior designer Chad James, whose offices sat right over the original café. As they brainstormed, both realized that if they were going to change locations, they also needed to change the look and feel. Gone are the barn wood and rustic feel. In their place, you’ll find a sophisticated yet cozy space washed in grays and whites with modern touches throughout."
