Historical Concepts + Steven Gambrel - Part One








You may recognize this gem, it was Cottage Living magazine’s first Idea House. (Anyone else miss that magazine?!) The Bridgehampton cottage was designed by Historical Concepts out of Peachtree City, Georgia, with the interior design by Steven Gambrel. More than anything, I love the sunny breakfast nook with the comfy banquette. The combo of the red chairs and blue walls is fantastic, and I love the collection of bottles! The earthy colors paired with the light blue in the living room is great too, so soothing and cozy-feeling. And what Hamptons retreat would be complete without a fabulous pool! On Monday we'll be touring the upstairs with more photos from Marco Ricca and Cottage Living, including a spectacular loft area I know you'll LOVE!

Many thanks to Historical Concepts for providing me with source info, including the paint colors listed down below! If you're wondering about anything else, leave a comment and I'll look it up.

I too miss Cottage Living, missed this home. Love the breakfast room for the same reasons, the chairs really pop, great color combo.

And I love the upstairs bedroom with the shiny sloped ceiling, so light filled, similarly great colors.

I just ran into Steven Gambrel yesterday at Lee Jofa, he is so striking and TALL! I wanted to peak into his bag to see what samples he picked but couldn't get up the courage! Love his style, great post!!

I'm right there with you Erin...that first image of the breakfast area is a show stopper! Love every piece and detail within that room!

I too am inspired by the red chairs in the top photo but also by the red trim occasional chair in the master bedroom x

I miss that magazine a lot! I received it from the very first issue through the last and occasionally still look through them. Everything still looks fresh & current even though they're a few years old now. There's no other publication around that measured up to that one. :-(

I love your blog I check it all the time. What was the wall color in the bedroom with the canopy bed?
I think that would be perfect for my room! Thanks for all the great stuff you post!

Lisa said...

do you by any chance know the color of the dining room? looks like a pretty coral color.

Denise McGaha said...

Hi Lisa,

The canopy bedroom is painted Wythe Blue by BM (of course, LOVE that color!)

bestdesigncoach.com said...

First - thank you for sharing this gorgeous house!
Second - wood, wood planking on walls or ceilings, beautiful wood still makes a house sing and decorating sizzle!
Third - color, the palette of this house makes me want to be there.
Great job Steven G.!

Gorgeous! Steven Gambrel is so talented!

Laura Heitzman said...

So.... anyone great with paint/color matching? I have both wythe and stratton blue on the walls in my home and a set of four flea-market find chairs that I would love to paint the same red as the chairs in the post. Can anyone recommend a red that is a close match?
