I wanted to share with you a feature last week by Paloma over at La Dolce Vita.
She has a series called “My Favorite Room” in which she asks people to share the favorite room in their own house.
I shared my living room. I put together snap shots of the space and how it is has changed over the years and how I use it and how it is so personal to me.
Check out her blog for lots of inspiration- always filled with great photos and great quotes.
Thank you, Paloma, for having me on your blog. You can check it out HERE and read the story below:
MY FAVORITE ROOM: GRANT K. GIBSON
This is Grant K. Gibson of Grant K. Gibson Interior Design in San Francisco.
Happy New Year! Thank you, Paloma for asking me to be a part of your series.
My living room is where I seem to spend most of my free time.
The space has gone through a lot of transformations over the years.
I have: edited the space; added in additional layers (like my Moroccan rug from my trip is April); painted my built in bookcase gray; and swapped out my cocktail tables for a custom pair of faux-burled Parson-style tables.
I just purchased a Serge Mouille 3-arm lamp as a gift to myself and I couldn’t be any happier with my choice.
I read in this space. I throw little cocktail parties or dinners for friends. Campbell and Wallace, my two Westies, love to nap and snuggle up at the end of a long day.
I love having fresh flowers on the tables and candles glowing in the evening. I retire here to enjoy a pot of tea or cup of coffee - or a bottle of wine open.
On weekends, I typically enjoy quiet mornings with coffee and The New York Times.
I even set up the space for my two godchildren this summer for a little picnic.
For dinner on Christmas Eve, I transformed the space by adding a large rectangular table for eight - and turned the space into the perfect spot for an intimate dinner.
As you can see, I really do use this space quite a bit. It’s small, but cozy to me.
Thanks for popping by to check it out.
