Beth Webb: An Eye for Beauty: Rooms That Speak to the Senses
Beth Webb believes that regardless of who we are or what kind of style we prefer, beauty and comfort are paramount for any home. Because each room is an environment, her design elevates the everyday by speaking to the five senses. In this lavishly illustrated book, Webb explores the fundamentals of creating a home in which every element we see and touch, and how the room makes us feel, enhance our ability to live well.
Drawing from her background in the fine arts, Webb offers insight into how form, line, and scale render a space timeless and promote a sense of well-being. There should be texture, calm colors, and plenty of visual moments to keep the eye moving. There should be impeccable tailoring and polished details. And most important, there should be soul, meaning that the house must reflect its owners and their evolving lifestyle. Webb gracefully shares ideas, images, and stories illustrating these principles throughout this rich visual resource and design reference.
"Although the overall design of a room is important, Webb explains that for her, the real beauty is found in the details. And her book reflects that philosophy, with time and space dedicated to an arrangement of peonies or the embroidery on a billow 'to bring people into the emotionality of the book.'"
"...She had a huge library, she painted, her husband painted...,' recounts the Atlanta-based designer, whose upcoming book Beth Webb: An Eye for Beauty: Rooms That Speak to the Senses (Rizzoli, September 2017) details this whole home and others from her portfolio."
"Webb’s interiors reflect the sure hand and sharp eye of someone who understands form, line, color, and balance. The serene sanctuaries she creates have an effortless feel that should not be mistaken for a decorator on autopilot."
