Project Spotlight: Caroline Harper Knapp
When neighbors follow each other from one street to another, they must have a lot in common. This was the case for House of Harper blogger, Caroline Harper Knapp and her (now-twice) Houston, Texas neighbor Jennifer Barron, principal of Jennifer Barron Interiors. Caroline was looking for a decorator who shared her vision for relaxed and timeless interiors. “I had so many images filled with color and pattern, but I could not have pulled the look together on my own,” says Caroline, who didn’t need to go far to find Jennifer, a self-described transitionalist. It did not take long for the decorator to assemble classic, but updated mood boards for the house with lighting, furniture and fabric. “After the presentation, Caroline and I sat at the dining room table wearing masks and moving fabrics around until everything clicked into place,” says Jennifer who balanced the fresh with the fine all throughout the house. Here the decorator spills her secrets for designing a traditional family home with forever fresh appeal.
