Art Matters

My favorite clients are the ones who know what they want,” says Atlanta-based interior designer Beth Webb, “the ones who have a great aesthetic of their own.”

 

It’s no surprise, then, that Webb thoroughly enjoyed designing the interiors of this new spacious Buckhead townhouse for a pair of friends-turned-clients who wanted favorite artworks in their collection to drive the design of every room in the home.

 

“She has an absolutely amazing eye,” Webb says of the wife, whom she met through mutual friends on a trip to the South of France several years ago. Like Webb herself, her client—an artist currently working mostly in pastels—is an art historian, and has been affiliated with some of the East Coast’s top galleries and museums. The husband, who retired as a CEO in the restaurant industry, has been an art lover for many years. Together for two decades, the couple has curated an impressive and varied array of pieces that include American outsider art and pottery, French lithographs, British paintings, and notable examples of German expressionism. Even before they began their collaboration with Webb, the couple had decided which pieces from their collection would go where in the house.
