My latest design crush is Stephen Shubel
who uses wonderful French influences in
his work. I completely fell in love with his
own home in Sausalito. Shubel's own home
in Sausalito is a 1906 Fisherman's cottage
that he overhauled to his own style.
I love the above living room with the floors
done in contrasting colors. The texture it
creates is quite lovely but subtle.
a brilliant idea. Something unexpected
but done in such a classy way.
I really liked how he outlined the welting in
black which is a bit of a twist.
You can tell he has furnished his place with
many antiques and flea market finds.
black accents in such an understated way.
It reminds me of a chic French country home.
Bright pops of yellow - Stephen Shubel is
known for his propensity towards yellows
The gilt root rest is a really nice touch.
A look at those beautiful floors that extend
into the really homey kitchen and a fabulous
display of his platter ware.
Last but not least, his very charming desk.
Francophile or not, it's hard not to fall in
love with such a lovely cottage by the sea.
