A Tudor In Bronxville, NY

While enjoying some pictures on Elle Decor I came across this dining room which I find architecturally stunning. I researched further and discovered that this is the reception of a 1927 tudor in Bronxville, NY, a few miles from where I live. This home was decorated by designer Steven Gambrel. It has been designed with casual and modern furnishings, perfect for the homeowners, a family with three young kids.

The reception has been converted into a dining room. It has the original staircase and a magnificent ceiling. The chandelier is vintage, dining table is English from the 1930s, carpet is 1920s Persian and the chairs are of cowhide.

Elegant library with comfortable seating - I love the deep sofa -which is not stuffy, and great windows. 1895 Swedish ceiling light; original-to-house built-in bookcase.

Oak panelling in the library is also original and was completely restored.

One of my favorite spaces  - the second floor hallway - with this stunning artwork which makes a bold statement. The painting is called Golden Butterflies and is by Hunt Slonem. Antique English bench and vintage European table and lamp.

Another amazing space with a magnificent ceiling. The foyer with ABC Carpet and Home runner, lamps made from 19th century French urns, antique light, vintage console.

Furniture in the family room by the designer. I love the painted doors here. Vintage lighting.

The sunroom has the original French doors and coffered ceiling. Furniture is by the designer and rug is custom-made whereas lamps are from the 1950s.

Marble countertops and custom cabinets in this great white kitchen with vintage light fixtures. The coffered ceiling is new.

I love the use of blue and green in this guest room.

Luxurious master bath.

The master bedroom boasts a custom headboard, antique bench and 1920s French chandelier.
