Dark + Dramatic in South Hampton


It always makes me so sad to think of all the stunning beach homes which sit empty all fall and winter! As a designer, this is usually when we are called in, but personally I love the off-season in beach towns - it's so cozy and you get it all to yourself. 

This utterly chic home by designer Steven Gambrel is the perfect example of a welcoming and snug seaside getaway. It's full of fabulous jewel tones, rich textures, and dark woods - perfect for year round living. And I can just imagine long walks in the crisp fall weather and a wonderful family Thanksgiving here! 





















I am swooning over that kitchen with the black handmade subway tiles, crisp white appliances and geometric patterned floors! I also love those chevron chairs in the living room paired with the emerald green round ottoman. 

What is your favorite space?

Beautiful! The plush gray tufted sofa mimicking the black window framing, is just perfection! And it's inspiring to see jewel tones used so well!

Allison that living room you mentioned plus the first with those glossy deep green walls. All are full of warmth and very inviting!

Oh I have a Designer Pillows Giveaway! I hope you will join! ( a great source as well)

Although I have seen it many times but I am still very much in love with the kitchen! The black subway tiles, the gorgeous hood, the rustic farm table, the benches and the floors work so well together. I like it because it is beautiful a little unconventional. I think it is one of the best kitchens out there, for me at least! This designer is truly talented and has impeccable taste!

Those chevron chairs also caught my eye, and so did that beautiful outdoor seating loggia area.

So that's where that kitchen comes from! It's so cool to see it in context of the rest of the house, which is jaw-dropping, by the way. It must huge. I cannot begin to imagine the kind of creative force it would take to buy for and decorate every room.
