"The design process starts with life - and how we live.
There is an art to living well, to elevating the everyday....
What I want above all is for the interiors I create to imbue
those who live in them with feelings of
well-being and contentment." Designer Beth Webb
Elegance of simplicity in light filled rooms designed or redesigned for living well; subtle nuances where the details do more than matter, they shine; beautiful homes rewarding their owners with timeless decoration ... When tradition meets modernity, when beautiful architectural meets layers and layers of beautiful texture creating the comforts of home... rooms that speak to the senses, then you know that you are are experiencing the art of a home designed by Atlanta designer Beth Webb.
In her recently debuted book; Beth Webb, An Eye for Beauty- Rooms That Speak To The Senses you will find more than just an elegant table top design book, but a philosophy of achieving true beauty in the home with sound, touch, taste, and smell; minute intimacies, the essence of coming home. Elegantly composed homes, that offer a sense of contentment and well-being. A lovely, richly appointed, feast for your eyes design book that you will want for your personal library and is a perfect gift for the upcoming holiday season. The foreword is written by Clinton Smith, editor in chief of Veranda, which is always a mark of good taste...
"In this very special place surrounded by wilderness, the design of this house intended to gratify all the senses - down to the last perfectly aromatic detail. "
"A decorative trim on the lead edge of a drapery panel or the simplest flange on the edge of a seat cushion - so many exquisite details may be almost indiscernible when one first surveys the room as a whole, but their revelation over time is one of the most beautiful aspects of design."
"For me, design drama depends so much on the dimensional elements. I prefer to use the tactile components rather than the color palette to energize each space: a zebra rug, say, on top of sisal or nubby bouclé wool, snuggling up to a coarse Belgian linen."
"No day should pass without our experiencing a sense of beauty in one form or another, even for a moment. A glimpse of the possibility of perfection. Something wonderful against the skin. A snatch of melody. A whiff of perfume. A taste of happiness."
"Reinvented to suit the owners' lifestyle and filled with their personal treasures, this home does what home should do: express a shared inner vision in every last touch."
