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."  Above: The facade features a cheery red door. Above: There are four bedrooms in the main house as well as a parlor floor that's open to all guests. Above: The parlor floor features operable garage doors that open to the courtyard; at the rear is a cabin with additional bedrooms for rent. Above: The pristine kitchen is available for guests to use. Above: Another view of the communal living room space. Above: A Chesterfield sofa. Above: A dreamcatcher. Above: A graceful staircase leads to four second-floor guest rooms. Above: The Lion Master Den has an en suite bathroom/dressing room. Above: The Lion Master Bath is detailed with a porthole window in the shower. Above: The Kanoono cabin in the rear is an Adirondack-style space "with a bit of Western American Indian flair," Porter says. Above: A staghorn chandelier illuminates the Kanoono cabin bedroom. Above: In the Kanoono bath, the sink's plumbing pipes are wrapped in rope.  The B&B is at 111 Powers St., in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, NY.
