blue is my favorite color…it always has been. there is just something about a blue room that makes me happy, comfortable, at ease….i’ve never seen a blue room i didn’t love, and i can’t think of anyone who does a blue room better than steven gambrel.

steven is a brilliant designer and really understands a detail- a blue detail. i love how he paints a space…light blue walls, with robins egg trim and a pale icy ceiling….a beautiful foundation…

….then he adds perfectly scaled furnishings, of course upholstered and trimmed in the prettiest blues, all sitting on a geometric printed blue wool rug…. finished off with the most magnificent lights, steven always uses amazing lighting, that brighten all the blues.

i love blue, i always have, and i love that i’m not the only one…if it was up to steven and i, everything would blue- always blue! enjoy!
