I'm working on a new project ...the redo of a small, cozy den....and I've been looking for inspiration.
I seem to be finding that in almost everything Stephen Gambrel does !
Dark glossy walls... elements to keep it light, like art, the ceiling, the rug, and reflective surfaces....stripes to make it interesting....square shapes to make it unified.
He also breaks the rules to keep us engaged.....glossy black leather chairs should disappear on the black glossy wall, but the silver nailheads and the pillow pops let us know they are there. Convention would have us make the lampshades and the matting on the art be the same color, but this is so much more dramatic, isn't it? Oh, and that chandelier!!
I'm just a big fan of Stephen's work, and I could go on and on about this room, but I'm wondering what you think?
