i recently stumbled across the site of s.r. gambrel, a remarkable design firm in nyc. i'm quite familiar with their work, as they've been featured in the pages of just about every design magazine i scour. why i hadn't thought to go straight to the source and dive headlong into the splendor, i'll never know. but i have now and let me tell you...it's glorious.
steven gambrel is the mastermind behind it all and i love his work for a number of reasons:
1- his ability to seamlessly blend the modern and traditional. he will combine unbelievably timeless furnishings with pops of mid-century modern in a way that is so elegant and confident and right.
2- his pops of color. i think we all know how obsessed i am with neutrals right now, but i couldn't help but become lost in his use of color. he uses bright, fun colors in a way that is not the least bit juvenile or cliche. so inspiring.
3- he has a background in architecture, which becomes abundantly clear when you dive into his work. it's clear that he spends a significant amount of time understanding the structure of a space, and then uses the design to elevate that structure. i think this is why there is so much variety in his work - he has the ability to adapt to what the house itself needs, and not just impose his own sensibility on things. this is no one-trick-pony.
this is a rather photo-heavy post. as it should be. give in to the splendor.
okay, i just had to sneak in my neutrals.
i wish i could sit there for hours. unbelievable light.
there are no words. just, perfection.
again with the light. and that daybed? utterly fantastic.
i mean, that piece! unreal.
almost trumps carrie & big's closet.
now THIS is a children's room.
