ditto-worthy designer :: Steven R Gambrel {part one}
Monday, October 8, 2012 by {darlene}

One of my favorite interior designers, ever, is Steven R Gambrel. He is a master at creating spaces that are visually breathtaking, yet practical and livable. His spaces are inviting, yet also sophisticated. It is no wonder his designs are so celebrated.

His rooms are ditto-worthy in so many ways. As I began gathering images of my favorite rooms by Steven R Gambrel, I realized there were far too many for just one post. So, today and next Monday will BOTH feature Mr. Gambrel’s designs. {update: click here to see the additional rooms from Mr. Gambrel} SO MANY beautiful spaces!

As you pour over the following rooms, keep in mind the following design concepts that I believe make his spaces SOOOOO ditto-worthy! {and don’t forget to think about what YOU would ditto from these spaces!}

Steven R Gambrel’s spaces are ditto-worthy because:

  1. he is masterful at adding layers
  2. of the mix of traditional lines with modern design elements
  3. there is an overall elegance and sophistication
  4. and yet, there is a practicality and comfort that caters to a life-well-lived
  5. he often has a simple, yet amazing, use of floor-to-ceiling drapes
  6. his masterful use of rugs and carpets to add comfort and “frame” a room
  7. his spaces have plentiful and beautiful lighting
  8. there is a thread of glamour added to everyday living: stunning bars, coffee tables piled high with art and design books, things that shimmer – shine – reflect – sparkle
  9. his strokes of bold design are brought into each space in a way that does not interfere with comfortable living
  10. he offers a mix of contrasting textures that make the space feel alive
