Hot Talent Stephanie Gamble

The Baltimore designer combines classic style with a touch of the unexpected

Hot Talent Stephanie Gamble It took a life-changing event—the sudden loss of her mother—to make Stephanie Gamble rethink her own life. The then-27-year-old biologist realized that “life’s too short. I asked myself, ‘What is it that you really want to do?’”

A longtime design aficionado, she decided to launch her own interiors firm and furniture shop. “I sat down and wrote a business plan,” Gamble recalls. “A year later, I opened a showroom and took clients.”

That was 12 years ago. Since then, she has completed dozens of residential projects and in 2006, expanded her store, The House Downtown, to a larger location in Baltimore’s Belvedere Square.

Gamble says the shop’s array of furniture, lighting, and accessories are an extension of the design aesthetic she brings to clients’ homes. “We are always classic but with a bit of an edge,” she explains. “My clients want their homes to look beautiful but also want them to function. I use fabrics and luxury in ways that are practical.”

Gamble has definitely found her passion for design. “I love fabrics; I could roll around in them,” she quips. “And I get super excited when vendors show me something really spectacular.”

Creating a client’s dream home “exceeds everything I ever wanted,” she continues. “But the biggest compliment of all is when they call you back to work on another house.”
