Take a glance at all the press coverage Steven Gambrel has received over the past few years, and you will read descriptions like, "Yankee Hip," "The New American," "Making History," and "American Idyll." The Virginia-bred designer has an architecture degree from the University of Virginia, and a serious grasp of history. (Thomas Jefferson is an influence.) But Gambrel's use of color and fabric, not to mention his inspired mix of furniture, gives his interiors a very youthful, fresh vibe. No "Williamsburger" rooms here.
