Pop Quiz 11


There are, I imagine, a few folks, hopefully ambulatory, who have been around since the Blandings blog beginning. Way back in August 2007.


If you have, or you've stumbled in somewhere in the middle, you know all about the pop quizzes.


But, for the new kids, every now and again I post a vintage layout by a designer working today. Then you can test the depth of your knowledge as design crazy and see if you can name him or her.


Usually hims, frankly. And, now that I've typed it out loud I realize that with designers I am usually hetrostylistic. Though certainly not homostylephobic. Huh. Another topic for another day.


So, make your best guess and I'll be back sometime this afternoon, hands slightly tacky from sunscreen, for the reveal of both designer and good guesser/sage design crazy.


And, as an aside, isn't all this honey colored wood sort of yummy and refreshing?


To get the idea you can see past pop quizzes here.

Cheating was never my strength, so I will just bow out of my hypothesis. I surrender to good practical manly aesthetics.

Could this be Thomas O'Brien? It kind of reminds me of David Netto but I've never seen his work on your blog before.

Nate Berkus . . .?? A couple of the photos look like one of his former apartments.

Based on the exquisite eye toward color I am going to guess Steven Gambrel.

I have no idea who designed the room. I do love a room or building that can stand proudly through the years. It tells me someone got it right the first time. That's what separates the men from the boys. So to speak.

Please let us know when this was done. I'm off to the dictionary to look up some new (to me) words...

I love Nate Berkus rooms (and Nate Berkus, himself, of course!)
His rooms are so organic - earthy and modern. Thanks for featuring his rooms today.
