Beth Webb

As a young woman Beth Webb moved from the academic world of curated art galleries, exhibits and art academia into the world of beauty and emotion that reaches farther than the eye can see. The focus of Beth’s career is the “art of living well.”

It is this emotional understanding of beauty and style that informs her work and has made Beth one of the most lauded interior designers of our day. Born into a full Southern heritage, the idea of home to Beth runs deep and is expressed best through all five senses. Beth interprets the instinctive meaning of home as she creates layers of tangible beauty. In her sophisticated, classic and uplifting interiors she creates sanctuaries that engage on a personal level - editing out the chaos, adding in thoughtful, elegant essentials in a continuous pursuit of gracious living.

As an industry ambassador and style influencer, Beth’s work is often featured in Veranda, Elle Decor, House Beautiful, Traditional Home, Luxe and Atlanta Homes and Lifestyles.

Beth’s first book, An Eye for Beauty (Rizzoli), gives her design audience insight into her intuitive design process, celebrating interiors that “speak to the senses”.
