tearing it up {with Steven Gambrel}

 I have a horrible habit---I rip! I am sure many design enthusiasts carefully cut out, photocopy, dog ear or "post it" the visual bliss of hardcover interior design books. However, I cannot help but hastily tear out the inspiring images from those perfectly bound pages! I just finished Steven Gambrel's book and there is a pile of pages on my floor, which is a huge compliment. I love his style -- it may sound like an odd comparison but it reminds me of a classic martini with a twist. In case you were curious, these images were at the top of my "rip pile". I just adore these cabinets and charming pulls...
This high gloss pocket door and industrial hood...
And an eglomise ceiling? Yes, please!
These are easily some of the most lovely and thoughtful stairways I have seen! 

And for the pure cheekiness of it -- a stag horn fern wall in his outdoor "trophy room"...

I rip through magazines like there is no tomorrow!
Books, I save
Well, I shouldn't write that, that is not true... I bought some books last summer and tore them up but I bought them to rip through:)
Love that stair well such a gorgeous shot!

I love this interior designing rooms with having best tiles and wall paints. The last one is so beautiful and having my favorite green color combination.

That first kitchen is beyond amazing. I love the distressed feel. I'm of course in love with the spiraling staircase with the amazingly printed carpet.

It's okay to rip ... provided you don't rip the images! I love that sink and shelving in the top photo...

That first picture is complete and utter kitchen bliss. I want a stunning one just like that!

And ripping is fine~! Healthy! You should see my Better Homes & Gardens magazines. I decoupage, so all of my magazines are chopped to pieces! It's pretty in the decoupage, but not in the magazines. Mwuahahaha!

This design tile looks good for your kitchen room. It is little more costly than color tiles. You can spend for it as it is worthy and keeps the place looking good.
