Steven Gambrel Works His Magic in Middleburg

If I could hire any designer, certainly Steven Gambrel would be on my short list.  He established his New York-based design firm, S. R. Gambrel Incorporated, in 1995, only three years after earning an architecture degree at the University of Virginia. Whether he’s designing a polished uptown duplex, a rambling country house, or a weekend beach house, Steven serves the needs of each client with his passion for timeless, comfortable houses that improve with age. His fresh, innovative approach to color and form has been widely celebrated in magazines and newspapers, including House & Garden, Elle Décor, Interior Design, Departures, New York Times, and New York Magazine.

In a recent issue of Southern Living, a Gambrel masterpiece was highlighted in Middleburg, where he took an old barn and turned it into a showcase.  Take a look (all photos are from Southern Living).

The barn looks pretty ordinary on the outside.......

But there is nothing ordinary about the inside.  He used the owners' farm "colors" to add a bit of splash to the entire room. What a difference that makes!
Isn't the end product divine?
Here are a few clips of some of his other projects.   I think I like this powder room because it reminds me of nature.

And anything ikat, I just love.

Happy Thursday!
