A favorite

Having spent the week delving in dusty old magazines it comes as a relief to post this time not from the past but from modern-day Manhattan on Fifth Avenue.

Mr Stephen Gambrel has updated his website and here are two photos of the same room that caught my eye immediately - silvery, cool, scaled, articulate and comfortable. For me, Mr Gambrel is one of the most exciting decorators at work today. His designs are illuminated by a sharp intelligence and a rare consideration of scale, adjacency, and form, all usually involved in a background of good strong color.

Enjoy your weekends.

  1. He does seem to get everything pulled into a great package-I love the pair of lanterns and the fitted armories are absolutely gorgeous. GT
