Style Profile: Dana Gibson

I am a long-time admirer of designer Dana Gibson, and as I've been wrapping up my Christmas shopping, I find that she continues to be a go-to resource for everyone on my list. After a stint teaching high school, Dana decided to follow her passion for creating charming and colorful accessories for the modern home. She refashions traditional designs by drawing upon centuries old classics such as Chinese vases, painterly florals, bird and animal prints, and intricate fretwork. Below are a few of my favorite examples of Dana's work...

Dana Gibson's incredible line of wallpaper and fabric for Stroheim.

Sissinghurst tea towel (also perfect for the powder room) - $28.
Clivedon tea towels in blue and pink - $28 each.
These adorable cachepots come in an assortment of Dana's signature prints. Above is Orange Bargello for $50.

To learn more about Dana Gibson, you can read a fabulous interview via Chinoiserie Chic. I was intrigued to learn that Dana's great grandfather was the renowned painter Charles Dana Gibson, the creator of the famous Gibson Girl of the 1890s. Dana's great aunt, Nancy Astor, was the first woman to be elected to the House of Commons and another aunt, Nancy Lancaster, was an owner of the esteemed firm Colefax and Fowler. Artistry and achievement are clearly in Dana's DNA!

  2. Dear Andrea,
    Another blockbuster post on TGP!
    Love Dana's work, and had thought of using one of her fabrics for my new upholstered headboard- the vase print-
    Stroheim is one of the lines we carry at MP and it's an old, distinguished house- did you know for example, that they were the first one Sister Parish went to when she first started out, to ask for a trade account? (they were widely known for the most elegant silk stripes)Interesting! Thanks for sharing!

  3. The patterns that Dana Gibson uses are absolutely phenomenal. They bring an interesting pop to any room. When I moved into my new apartment, I used Furnishr to create a room that was going to feel comfortable and relaxing. I love how they incorporated pops of designs like Dana Gibson does. If you can, check out them out http://www.furnishr.com
