Over the last couple of years, I have included several photos of Barbara Westbrook’s spaces in a number of different posts, but I have never written one devoted entirely to her work. That is, until now.
I had planned to do one on her brilliant work this month because I seem to be drawn to lake houses in the month of September. Yes, I know that is strange, and it happens every year. Weird, huh? I have saved this photo from House Beautiful for a looooooong time. I love this room she designed in a lake house in South Carolina. Don’t you just love the soft colors, the plank walls, the stone fireplace, and her use of antiques?
And even though this photo is from long ago, this room is still one I could live in today.
This foyer is in the same house.
And so is this office…
and this wonderful porch.
Wouldn’t you like to be sitting out there right now?
Now here is what is so uncanny about this. You won’t believe what I discovered while I was researching this post. This house, with its classic Barbara Westbrook rooms, was designed by….Keith Summerour – the architect I wrote a post about last Friday! Isn’t that a strange coincidence??
And there’s more….
This elegant kitchen…
and this charming bedroom with its gingham linens and headboards…
are both in an Atlanta house (built in 1936) that belongs to…that same architect, Keith Summerour. Guess who did the interior design…Barbara Westbrook.Cue the theme song from The Twilight Zone.
Okay…enough with the strange coincidences. Let’s look at some more beautiful rooms by Westbrook Interiors. Here are a kitchen and two bedrooms from another lake house.
I am not sure where the house is in the next photo, but I think you will like this kitchen she designed for it.
So are you as smitten with her work as I am? Even her studio is a gorgeous space (cat included)
both inside and out.
Her studio is located in Atlanta, so if you are in need of a designer who can help you with elegant and classic spaces that are comfortable at the same time, Barbara Westbrook can handle your project. Or if you are more of a do-it-yourself decorator, then I hope these photos have given you some inspiration.
Until next time…
