Interior designer Sarah Gilbane has been on my design crush radar for years. I love her classic meets modern approach to design. Her rooms are layered with exotic pieces and antiques, and plenty of pattern. And for a pattern girl like me, that is heaven.
She loves mixing old and new, high and low, creating spaces that have a very collected, sophisticated look, but without being too fussy.
|This modern and elegant living room is right up my alley, from the geometric rug to the tufted velvet sofa.|
Sara is one that pays close attention to all of the tiniest details. Just look at those window treatments trimmed out in a greek key pattern. Yum.
|The metallic artwork and horizontal stripes add to the visual interest and depth in this large scale living room.|
|This velvet tufted chesterfield is the ultimate in cozy sophistication. The brass nailhead detail adds a nice classic, and feminine touch to balance out the more masculine blue upholstery.|
|The dining room lotus pendants add some glam, while the more playful silhouette artwork keeps it from becoming too uptight.|
|Adding a wall of mirrors opens up even the smallest of spaces.|
|I love this girly upholstered headboard trimmed in navy. It's the perfect contrast up against that gorgeous greige grasscloth. Pattern + texture = true love.|
|This room speaks preppy all-american antique to me. From the poppy print, to the vintage furnishings, it's a home run.|
|Boy would I love to get my hands on that little antique leather chair.|
|This bedroom is luxurious and lovely. The greek key bedding plays well with the pattern on the walls, and the classic furniture pieces in the room.|
|You can never go wrong with a classic stripe.|
The furniture in this nursery is simply sublime. I love the classic white with gray, and the regency-style crib from The New Traditionalists.
|I'm a huge window seat enthusiast, and I absolutlely love this space. It's perfectly styled and balanced, and pluck full of pattern.|
|This is a perfect example of how to mix pattern. The large scale Suzani upholstered sofa is paired with throw pillows in coordinating colors and pattern in a smaller scale. It's a perfect combination.|
|I love Sara's eclectic dressing space with the lucite table and ceiling tin-style mirror.|
