Over lunch on Tuesday, I was fortunate to tune into the #AskAD100 chat with Kelly Wearstler on twitter. Of course, all of her Tuesday tweets were noteworthy, but one of the ones that resonated most with me is, “The best way to hone in on your design aesthetic is to train your eye. I look at everything I can!“
This got me thinking: (a.) of the great designers I have had the opportunity to train my eye and with, and (b.) that I should highlight some of their work here.
Pembrooke & Ives is the New York based, 2004 AD 100, interior design and architecture firm headed by Creative Director Andrew Sheinman. Andrew’s aesthetic is classically modern, with a continental club flair that is indubitably influenced by his English upbringing.
Here I highlight a quintessentially Pembrooke & Ives project: the Southampton shingle-style estate.
In the Entrance Hall: Darkly stained mahogany floors peek-a-boo from underneath leather-edged sisal. Amazing artwork throughout. In the Living Room: A classic camel, cream, and pale blue palette. Sofa and club chair by Roman Thomas, diamond-patterned cotton and silk rug from Beauvais.
In the Living Room: A pair of coffee tables made of parchment and polished stainless steel. In His Studio: Cerused oak paneling.
In the Kitchen: White milk glass counter tops and Alessi accessories. In the Breakfast Room: A custom-designed chandelier.
In the Master Suite: A stunningly simple upholstered bed steals the spotlight. Cut crystal bedside table lamps.
In Her Bath: Ultra-luxe blue marble walls, Greek Thassos mosaic floors, and a Pembrooke & Ives custom-designed Maison Jansen-inspired? vanity.
In keeping with Kelly’s advice, I continue to train my eye.
