Takeaway Tuesday: Southampton Living Room

May 14th, 2013

Hello all, how’s it going? Yesterday was Matt’s birthday so we went out to dinner and a movie, and how cute is the chocolate cake my girl made for her daddy? So sweet! We saw Gatsby last night and I was left feeling ‘meh’ about it – loved all the clothing and cars and all the swoon worthy art deco settings but the story felt a little empty. What did you think?

Today I wanted to share a beautiful room decorated by designer Steven Gambrel, I’m such a huge fan of his work – his spaces are flawless. This living room appeals to me for its ocean hues but also for these five takeaways.
