Drawing Board Interior Design

Strong Statement

Drawing Board Interior Design Homeowners in Baltimore County hired Stephanie Gamble to update the interiors of their abode, a task that included revamping the lackluster living room. Gamble created “a very clean, modern, yet classic space,” she says, where her clients could entertain family and friends.

Then Now
The living room was forgettable, with dilapidated floors and a lack of architectural detail. The ineffective recessed lighting made the room dim. Gamble refinished the floors and painted the walls light beige, punctuated by cream-colored trim. Draperies allow for maximum light.
Despite the fireplace, with its boring surround, the room felt like it needed a focal point. The fireplace wall provides a strong focal point, with a new surround embellished with crisp molding and a dramatic painting above it by Michael Carson.
In its previous iteration, the room was informal, which didn’t fit the owners’ vision of it as a space for entertaining. Simple but elegant furnishings include a Thibaut sofa and Hickory Chair chairs. Hickory White cabinets flank the fireplace; cream-painted interiors lighten them visually.
