Lyon Porter, the mastermind behind Williamsburg, Brooklyn's first B&B (by day he's a managing director of Town Residential, a Manhattan real estate company), calls Urban Cowboy "the definition of a passion project." Porter worked with designer Renee Mee on the interiors, which he says feature "an industrial Williamsburg/Adirondack cowboy sensibility, complete with scavenged potbellied stoves, exposed joists and brick, and wide-plank, rough-hewn white pine floors."
