I’ve got another packed day of preparations ahead of me, but I wanted to share some eye-candy with you nevertheless! Steven Gambrel continues to be a wonderful source of inspiration for me and this new project from his portfolio doesn’t disappoint. His spaces may be a little more grand than anything I’d ever hope to do, but there are so many beautiful choices, so many delicious details that I go back for more and more. As I piece together the shop and my first mix of objects to offer, these carefully curated Gambrel rooms keep me inspired.
Baskets will never be tired for me, and this one’s a beaut. I also love the black legs of this harvest table and what looks like a stone top. Great idea! You could skip the stone and paint the top white too.
A gorgeous cozy nook with three things I’m a sucker for: bottle lamp, kraft paper or parchment shade, topiaries. Yes, yes and yes!
I love this wooden cabinet (no, not painted!) and it gives me hope for the one in my shop!
This is a lovely living area and I especially like the unusual coffee table and the grouping of vintage paintings above the sofa. The colour of the door and how it’s painted a colour rather than white is also very nice. Ideas we can all use in our less grand homes, right?
A collection of shadow-boxed miniature ships? Genius! And what a landing!
And the perfect restful retreat. Another good lesson here especially if you don’t have amazing windows – layer them with natural blinds AND full length simple drapes. Okay back to work for me!!
