Barbara Barry has been celebrated for her refined style, characterized by a lush palette of subdued tones, furniture graced with sensual lines and delicate proportions, and a distinctly Californian, laid-back glamour. In short, sleek environments that are the very picture of elegance and luxury. But Ms. Barry's real genius is her devotion to detail, her carefully-orchestrated interiors in which every element has been selected to inspire calm and tranquility.

Exclusive Interview With Interior Designer Barbara Barry


Barbara Barry is a beautiful contradiction: Her style is at once impeccably classic and essentially Californian in its mix of influences and relaxed air. That combination has struck a chord with our current mood for a put-together decor that accommodates casual entertaining. Her furniture for Baker and her Barbara Barry–brand bed linens, china, and even scented candles make it possible to live in a world of Barry’s designs—as do these tips and insights she recently shared with us. —Paul O’Donnell
