A good example of Stephen’s style is his own apartment that was renovated for the third time by him. The surfaces have been bleached, limed and whitewashed, creating a ghosted-over version of its former self. The one exception is a chic new dressing room, which has been veneered entirely in dyed-green satinwood paneling that suggests the first-class compartment of some mysterious European train. So spaces that are decorated by him are always classic yet modern with like a brilliant decor inspiration.
