|Gordon Ramsay At The London, West Hollywood.|
|Interiors were designed by David Collins.|
|The British designer is a master at creating elegant, appropriate yet personal public spaces.|
|The color scheme might have been lifted from a box |
of French macarons ...
|... but the design is reminiscent of a California beach bungalow all dressed up and glamorous.|
Miles apart from Ramsay's on-air persona, his restaurants are refined and luxurious and some are, well, rather feminine. How can it be that an ex-professional soccer player has evolved into such an aesthete? The interior color palettes are sublime, and evocative of the artful and sophisticated plates he prepares in his pristine kitchens.
These images are a long, long way from Kitchen Nightmares, and the often grimy, bug-infested dives Ramsay makes over on the show, usually in sweaty, swearing and stressful episodes.
|Maze By Gordon Ramsay At The London, NYC was also designed by David Collins.|
|The spaces are much more Manhattan chic and sleek, but just as opulent.|
I can't help imagining stepping into one of Ramsay's dining rooms, walking through the quiet and tastefully dressed crowd, only to step into the kitchen and find Ramsay in the midst of one of his wild tirades.
