“Words from The Pros” – Barry Dixon
Barry Dixon on a recent trip to Morocco
. I am especially excited renowned designer Barry Dixon has graciously agreed to kick
off my new Wednesday Series “Words from the Pros.” I first heard Barry speak couple of years ago and was in awe of how he speaks with such passion about his work. I could listen to him talk about design all day. Most recently I had the pleasure of seeing Barry at High Point Market, when debuting new products in his line with Arteriors. Barry is such
a busy designer, I really appreciate how gracious he is to answer my
questions. Thank You Barry!
Words of Wisdom: “Design for the world the home inhabits, what it sees
through its window’s eyes. A penthouse in Manhattan, a farm in Virginia,
a cliffside aerie in Wyoming or a home on the sand in the Caribbean all
have different perspectives that must be addressed.”
Favorite Paint Color – “At the moment…, “Michael’s Moon”, #BD16 in my
new paint collection for C2 Paints. It’s warm, subtle barely there green/grey
that works anywhere and magically changes from day to night.
Favorite Way to Relax – “Snuggling with my dog in front of one of the roaring
fires at Elway Hall, my home in the Virginia countryside.
Here Barry and his good friend Kathryn Ireland are off to the barn and cutting garden
on one of her recent visits to Elway Hall, Barry’s home in Virginia.
Thank You Barry for allowing us to get to know you a little better!
