A Study in Neutrals- Beth Webb in Traditional Home and Atlanta Homes and Lifestyles


If you have been reading my blog long you know that Beth Webb is probably at the head of my list of favorite designers. I was delighted to see one of Beth Webb's recent projects featured in Traditional Home  this month.  The entire issue is wonderful but this house under Beth's skillful eye is a stunner. She limewashed all of the walls (three different wood species) creating a textural melange that is a feast for the eye.


















Another of Beth's gorgeous projects featured in Atlanta Homes and Lifestyles here still remains one of my favorites.  Beth has a knack for creating multilayered interiors with character by layering texture, antiques, art, and a heavy dose of her personal style.

In the dining room, texture in the form of limewashed floors, a rough-hewn mantel and a light elm pedestal dining table and slipcovered chairs, both from Bungalow Classic, complicate the play on light. Carved rooster lamp from Parc Monceau.





Interior designer Beth Webb swathed the master bedroom in sumptuous fabrics and rich creams and whites, allowing the ever-changing reflections through the windows to provide color in the space. Bed, Max & Company. Striped wool rug, swivel chairs, art and bedside lamp, Bungalow Classic. Drapery hardware, Bradley. Drapery fabric, Arabel. Drapery trim, Rogers & Goffigon. Three-drawer bedside chest, Mrs. Howard.

Beth's attention to detail is most prevalent in the consideration she affords every "nook and cranny" of a space.

Vintage shoe molds from Foxglove Antiques and a horn plaque from A. Tyner Antiques preside over a leather-handle chest from Max & Co.


Small and large wall-mounted horns mingle to create one cohesive statement in the foyer. Console, Mrs. Howard. Stools, South of Market. Root lamp, mounted horns and beads, A. Tyner Antiques. Hide rug, Bungalow Classic.

A Moroccan rug anchors an arrangement in the great room, which includes a teak root table from South of Market, a cream linen chair from Mrs. Howard and mounted Borneo paddles that serve as sculpture.

Artful arrangements in the great room, which overlooks Lake Chatuge, include horn brushes, Bungalow Classic’s Senta cabinet and a bench from Mrs. Howard.

How do you feel about neutral interiors?  Are you craving a burst of color or do you love the timeless appeal of neutrals and textures?

  2. Love the neutrals! Now and then (in spring, especially) I get the urge for color ... but always come back to the peace of these subdued shades. These are beautifully done. EXCEPT that there aren't any books!

  7. Thanks for sharing this talented designer and her work. I love neutrals but wish she used a little pop of color here and there. I wonder where the home on the water was located? Loved the antlers on the walls which suggested a mountain location. Love my mountains!

  13. I love everything about this post as usual. You illustrate my design sensibility in your posts and your own designs ect. and I patiently wait for each one. Beth Webb has always been a favorite designer of mine and she continues to amaze me. Please, do you know of a source who can lime wash wood as in this home? I live in the SF Bay Area and want lime washed cabinets in my future kitchen remodel. Any suggestions is appreciated.
