Beth Webb is an internationally recognized designer admired for her tactile, serene, and dynamic spaces. Founder and creative director of Atlanta-based Beth Webb Interiors, Beth’s vast body of work spanning from North to Central America is known for its sophisticated and inviting appeal, which is predicated foremost on the desire to foster a sense of well-being and content. She believes beauty only works if it is calibrated by ease, and that elegance is rooted in simplicity.
There are several recurring tenets that distinguish the contours of Beth’s interiors, including a nuanced and layered sense of texture. “Texture is my color palette,” says Beth, who uses depth of materiality to create interest in a room. Tension, whether by contrasting textures or forms, is indispensable. She mingles sinuous, sensual profiles with hard lines and geometric or primal shapes, juxtaposing masculine and feminine silhouettes to create compelling spaces. Light is another crucial element, and the designer believes it is only through layering light that warmth and romance can be established in an interior.
All of these facets are underpinned by Beth’s voraciously curious eye. “The eye has to travel,” she contends, and this concept has fed her intellect since childhood, which was marked by a rich education in art history and the liberal arts. She went on to study in London, earning her Master’s degree at Sotheby’s. While steeped in a deep knowledge of the arts, Beth asserts that it is travel that has informed and sustained her distinctive point of view. As a result, her work is harmoniously peripatetic. She is able to coalesce decorative elements that span cultures, continents, and centuries in a fascinating and seamless fashion.
Beth’s work has been widely featured throughout the top tier shelter magazines, including Veranda, House Beautiful, Traditional Home, ELLE DECOR, Milieu, and Luxe Magazines. As a revered veteran of the design industry, Beth is a board member of the Design Leadership Network. A tome devoted to her work, AN EYE FOR BEAUTY, was published by Rizzoli in 2017.
Every home begins as a blank canvas, a plan, a way and a structure to encapsulate life. Only through its materials, furnishings and details does it become beautiful, comfortable and personal.
