"Virginia native and New York City-based interior designer Steven Gambrel debuts his second book this season, filled to the brim with examples of his inimitable use of color and inspiring love of design and architectural history in all its forms." --Garden & Gun "It would be hard to name a more influential, or imitated, Amerian designer working today than Steven Gambrel. His work manages to be both soign and charming, colorful and understated. In his new book, Perspective... he provides an in-depth look at a dozen recent projects, seperated into two categories, Town and Country, because he feels context is crucial in establishing a proper style for each project. Standouts include a full-floor apartment in Chicago's Palmolive Building, overlooking Lake Michigan, that is a soign composition in grays and blues with vivid shots of red, and an East Hampton guesthouse that mixes a grand, double-height living room with more intimate spaces outfitted in watery hues and humble beadboard." --Dering Hall
