April- House Beautiful

Thank you to House Beautiful for including me in the April issue!

I am thrilled that my bedroom is featured with one of my favorite colors from Farrow & Ball- Drawing Room Blue (253)


It's a fickle light- strong in the morning, just a memory by noon- but these colors can hold their own all day long.

"Because my bedroom faces east, I thought I could be bold and go with a really concentrated color, since the light is never great in the space. This deep cobalt is moody, mysterious. I go into the room at night and it feels cozy. It calms me down at the end of a long day. And there's something about going to bed in a very dark room and then waking up to the sun coming's a great contrast."

Hey Grant, thanks for the recent blog.

While BLUE in any shade is not a
favorite quick pick for me, I really liked the recent column.
(I think I own only three blue garments...a light blue oxford shirt, a dark navy
suit, and a navy blazer!) Nothing in my home is blue and I've never owned
a blue car. Go figure. But, you swayed my thinking a little. Either you
are strong in your thinking or I am weak and changeable. Maybe a little
of both. Anyhow, I love your ideas...always fresh, innovative, and
clever. Thanks again.

Hi Charles-

Thank for writing as always.
I honestly have to agree with you and the blue. I have nothing blue in my life at all. I don't even wear blue!
I thought that taking this rather bold direction with the blue would be my version of being "edgy"!
I was a little bit afraid to take the chance on such a dramatic color, but I have to say I love it. Give blue a chance.

Your bedroom is beyond beautiful. I picked up the magazine today just to see it on the page!

Did you paint it yourself?

Grant K. Gibson said...

@ The Vintage Object- painting is not for me. I had my painting crew do it. They loved the Farrow & Ball paint to work with.

I am so proud of you! The rest of your home is equally as chic as your bedroom!

I love this dark color. I used only F&B paints in my house. They're the best.

Really enjoy your blog. Thanks for sharing.

I love this color, and am very excited to see it in use in a bedroom! I have always loved it for clothes. It would be great for a tie, gentlemen.
So glad to see you're in print again!

Your House is Beautiful...when we expose our intimate spaces we are honest with our external convictions. Live the blue room as it draws out your character as a designer and invites more people in need of what you've shared with! Congrats!

Thank you for inspiring me.

hey funny! I just found your blog through a blogroll, but your inclusion in HG was what cemented my decision to paint my guest room navy. (It is east facing). You can check it out here, if you care to:

Enjoying your blog already...
