A striking visual homage by leading interiors photographer Simon Upton

In his first monograph, renowned interiors photographer Simon Upton turns his camera on one of his most-loved destinations in this personal exploration of fashionable homes in New York City. Urbane and char­acterful, Simon Upton’s New York Interiors unveils the photographer’s favorite interior projects from the city, among them the homes of Aerin Lauder, Hamish Bowles, Stephen Sills, Michael S. Smith, Steven Gambrel, and Cynthia Frank, among others, intertwined with atmospheric images of the metropolis and its most stylish residents. Presented in two halves–City and Getaway–the book showcases city living from uptown to downtown, as well as the chic retreats of the Hamptons and other exclusive weekend destinations where New Yorkers head to relax.

Simon Upton is one of the foremost names in interiors photography, with more than twenty-five years of published work to his credit. Sought after by the major design organizations, he travels the world photographing people and their homes. His work appears regularly in The World of Interiors, Elle Decor, Vogue, AD, and House & Garden.

Karen Howes is an interior design writer whose books include Private Ireland, Vacation Homes, and Perfect Weekend Hideaways. She also runs The Interior Archive, a London-based picture library and photographic agency representing some of the world’s best photographers.

Rupert Thomas is editor–in–chief of The World of Interiors.

Simon Upton’s New York Interiors gives us access to the homes of Gotham’s top tastemakers.

Elle Decor

[Simon Upton’s] book, New York Interiors, is a paean of praise for the city he has grown to love over the years; the intimacy and familiarity with which each home is pictured is evident on every page. These are not the homes of strangers but of the photographer’s friends. It is not too much to say that Simon’s book gives the reader an insight not just into these considered and brilliant interiors, but into the personalities of the New Yorkers who made them.

House & Garden

In his very first book, renowned photographer Simon Upton takes us on a tour of 29 of his all-time favorite interiors shot over the course of his decades-long career.

Simon Upton is a photographer renowned for capturing the most sensational interiors. He has photographed the great and the good for the likes of Vogue, World of Interiors and, of course, Tatler – and now, the celebrated artist has turned his camera on the homes of the New York elite. In the words of Upton, himself, ‘from art-filled lofts and penthouse apartments to intimate and cozy pieds-à-terre, and from coal coastal dwellings to idyllic country plots’ – this book will leave your hunger for interiors satiated.


Over the course of more than two decades, British photographer Simon Upton has made a name for himself photographing domestic interiors and the people who live in them. . . with a blend of elegance and warmth that makes him a favorite of prestigious magazines. And although his work has taken him around the world again and again, he harbors a particular fondness for New York, as illustrated in his first monograph, New York Interiors.

Although he is based in London, photographer Simon Upton has shot some of the Big Apple’s most impressive residences, many of them collected in New York Interiors.

Hamptons Cottages & Gardens

Whether it’s the masterly fall of light through a Federal balustrade, a cleverly cropped-in dentil cornice or open doorways to evoke a walking tour, this set of visual essays has the full panoply of skill you’d expect to see from a photographer at the top of the tree. Simon Upton, a long-time contributor to The World of Interiors, Architectural Digest and American Vogue, is certainly that.
