Monday’s Masterpiece – it’s all in the details

I realised recently that my Monday’s Masterpieces have fallen by the wayside lately, and that is simply not cricket if you ask me.  Let’s get the ball rolling for 2014!

I was bowled over the other day by this bonkers-good office/living space designed by Steven Gambrel that’s been doing the rounds on t’interwebs:

Chicago Residence designed by Steven Gambrel.

Loooove the bold use of colour and that artwork is incredible.

I thought I’d take a little peek at the rest of his portfolio this morning.  Equally at home with vibrant colour – every shade of the rainbow in fact – and monochrome neutrals, these spaces are richly layered and full of exquisite details.  I’ve kinda favoured the more neutral puppies, so if you’re more colour-inclined then make sure you stop by his portfolio and have a look for yourself.

Think I’ll let the images speak for themselves today… do leave me a comment and let me know what you think!

    So happy to see you blogging this series again Elly! The blue toned room is really bold and immediately commands attention, I like that rustic wooden kitchen as well, reminds me of the country. And that bathroom, wow, just stunning!! I am always grateful for your kind comments…Have a great week ahead!

  3. Definitely my kind of Blue Monday/first picture. You know it’s funny because there is this story about the most depressive day of the year called Blue Monday, a whole nonsense concept (with a calculation formula!!!) in which some people believe. And yesterday was Blue Monday, dear Elly, best choice of colors here. Both kitchen are gorgeous and those stair gave me almost a hypnosis feeling, almost like the Dutch stairs that are so narrow and abrupt that you ask yourself if you will survive one more morning! And imagine the kitchen is downstairs, so without any coffee in my blood, every morning, I have to go through the Dutch stairs trap. Have a lovely day!

      Hey there Julie, thanks for stopping by! I’m sorry I don’t know the brand of the lights over the island, but I bet you could find something similar at Lamps Plus or Visual Comfort. Happy hunting!
