I’m feeling very coastal right now and no one does coastal style better than steven gambrel. a project of his in bridgehampton is in the new elle decor.

it’s signature steven- lots of layers, loads of color, paint on paint, great lighting, perfect millwork, undeniable textures and rich finishes. you would think with all of this going on it would feel fussy, it isn’t- it looks casual, comfortable and oh so coastal.

when you visit a coastal retreat you always want to come in through the back or the side entrance…it’s easy and just feels right. i thought i’d take you on a tour of this coastal project by entering through the back door…enjoy!!
