Gary Gibson Design Inspiration

Dear Diva Readers,

He’s one of the great style makers of our time setting trends and establishing the way we live today.

Gary Gibson breaks the mold of traditional decorating, and yet his interiors and shop still feel comfortable and welcoming.  He thinks outside the box and combines different textures and mediums, all the while playing with scale, color, and light.  When shopping his store, you get a real sense of his aesthetic; playful, unique, out-of-the-box with taste.

The mix of metal furniture (some bronze and stainless steel pieces are his own designs from his line Gibson Studio) and wood pieces along with interesting vintage accessories feels familiar and fresh all at once. In one vignette he combined a sleek wood console, rustic metal letters, marble urns, and a glass lamp—what a chic mix!  And Gary isn’t afraid of color, which is refreshing. His interiors are meant to be used and that is evident even in his store. I mean, he has a stocked bar set up on the sales floor! If I wasn’t jet-lagged and it wasn’t morning when I visited, I may have just poured myself some bubbly! How welcoming!

With features in publications like Architectural Digest, Veranda, and Elle Decor, Gary Gibson is definitely “one to watch” if you want to be inspired. Visiting his shop and chatting with him was definitely a highlight of my trip to LA!

It’s a photo simply filled with memories. A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle was my favorite book as a pre-teen and after our house fire last year my mother gave me the tattered copy from my youth. The glass mason jar is filled with seashells picked up on a girl’s trip years ago in Sanibel Island with dear friends Stacey, Catherine and Tamara and the giant foot is a souvenir from Rome when I took my 16 year old niece Tessa to Italy for her birthday.

And, lastly, the playing cards a memento of my time spent chatting a couple of months ago with Design Hero Gary Gibson at his trend setting shop in LA.  I see my home in memories – each piece a souvenir, sitting on a shelf and reminding me of moments that make me smile.
