We are delighted to continue our Designer Spotlight series with Beth Webb, one of the leading interior designers in Atlanta, Georgia. And Beth is much more than just a designer–she is a tastemaker with an eye for bringing art, furniture, and decoration together to create holistic interiors that are both elegant and timeless. We are eagerly awaiting the publication of her first book, An Eye for Beauty: Rooms That Speak to the Senses, which is being published later this year.
One of our favourite projects by Beth is a lovely home in Buckhead, one of Atlanta’s historic neighbourhoods. Shown above is the entryway, with a pair of black japanned antique chairs offset with boldly striped fabric, which brings out the gilt highlights on the chairs. The pair of gilded console tables with the Greek key pattern carries on this neo-classical theme, and these pieces are complemented by the pair of French tole bouillotte lamps and Asian figures on each table.
Another view of the same property shows examples of traditional antique furniture, including the Chippendale style dining room chairs and giltwood torchere, which are placed in conversation with modern abstract art and sculptures. The seamless inclusion of styles of arts spanning different centuries and cultures is impressive, and Beth makes the combination look effortless.
A final view from this interior shows a French japanned bureau plat in the Louis XV style, on top of which sits a number of decorative French pieces, including a Boulle writing stand and pair of ebony and gilt candlesticks.
Beth has a particular eye for creating evocative interiors with the use of a single element. Take, for example, this view of a hallway in another Buckhead residence. The rustic antique hall chair is the perfect focal point around the Gothic inspired staircase.
This image from another home directs your focus to the collection of antlers on the wall, which are grouped in a way to show them off as individual pieces as well as a whole ensemble.
And finally, this dramatic combination of the grand piano against the magnificent abstract painting is the perfect example of traditional pieces blending beautifully with modern art.
We are so looking forward to Beth’s first book, and until then, will be watching out for her latest projects and interior inspiration. Follow Beth on Instagram at @bethwebb and view more of her portfolio on her website here.
