Barbara Barry's Inspired Approach to Color
Soothing hues imbue relaxation and create a connection with the natural world.
For Californian designer Barbara Barry, simplicity is the height of elegance, and style is all about confidence. Known for her sophisticated interiors and refined furnishings and lighting designs, Barbara's philosophy is that nothing stands alone, but lives in harmony with its surroundings. She sees beauty in the simplest of things and designs with a softer palette inspired by nature. From the most beautiful celadon agave to the palest pink rose, she believes these soothing hues imbue relaxation and create a connection with the natural world. Read along as Barbara illuminates her inspiration behind the color palettes for some of her best-selling lamp designs.
Inspired by the ribs on a
cactus and the color of its
little blossoms. I see this blush
color in nature all the time
and love to bring it indoors.
It pairs beautifully with
all woods, metals and
materials. The transparent
ribbed glass illuminates
when lit and acts like a
beacon of light in a room.
Inspired by the beautiful Agave which abounds in my neighborhood. This evocative color morphs from grey to green depending on what it is paired with.
It is the constant
neutral that I use in
all my work. The gloss
glazed surface changes
with the light.
Inspired by the sensual curves
of melon forms this soft
shape adds a feminine gesture
to any room. The sensual
shape with waxed-like surface
softly reflects the light.
Ivory is a state of mind:
it always feels fresh and is
a constant neutral for all
interiors. The absence of
color feels like a blank
sheet of watercolor paper...
ready for any and all color
