It’s not surprising given her prestigious pedigree and youthful, yet very chic, aesthetic that Sara Gilbane was nominated one of the “Next Wave of Designers to Watch” in the latest issue of House Beautiful magazine.
Like many designers we know, Sara grew up with architecture and design as part of her life as the daughter of a nationally recognized real estate developer. After graduating from Brown University, Sara went on to study interior design at RISD and began her career with the fabulous firm of Celerie Kemble.
Over the years, Sara has worked on a number of commercial and residential projects, developing her signature style that is classic, eclectic, elegant and clean. We love how Sara creates beautiful interiors using her client’s prizes possessions and antiques and adding her innate sense of color and flair (especially when she uses lots of floral touches!)
On top of running her own design firm and working with clients from Newport to Palm Beach, Sara has found the time to launch a blog last week called Travel for Design, which will bring the best of travel, art, fashion, culture, real estate, cuisine, and design seen through her eyes. Her first post will be on An American Family in St. Barth’s and we can wait to see what she writes!

I LOVE her work. Very similar in style to Ruthie Summers, Jeffrey Bilhuber, and Charlotte Moss- she will be one of the greats. I also just found her blog and am completely in love with that as well! Great post and hope to see more of this designers smiling beautiful face!
I totally agree… I remember Sara on the cover of Domino several years’ ago and immediately added her to my list of favorites!
