Beautiful Country Homes Tour
This post features tours of beautiful country homes designed by Beth Webb, an internationally recognized interior designer admired for her tactile, serene, and dynamic spaces. Beth believes beauty only works if it is calibrated by ease, and that elegance is rooted in simplicity.
“Texture is my color palette,” says Beth, who uses a variety of materials and objects to create interest in a room. She mingles sinuous profiles with hard lines, juxtaposing masculine and feminine silhouettes to create compelling, sensual spaces. Layered light is another crucial element bringing a sense of warmth, romance and contentment to Beth’s interiors.
“The eye has to travel,” she contends. This concept has fed her journey since childhood, which was marked by a rich education in art history and the liberal arts that ultimately lead to her Master’s degree from Sotheby’s in London. While the arts are her foundation, Beth asserts it is travel that has informed and sustained her distinctive point of view. She’s able to coalesce decorative elements that span cultures, continents, and centuries in a fascinating and seamless fashion.
“Every home begins as a blank canvas, a plan, a way and a structure to encapsulate life. Only through its materials, furnishings and details does it become beautiful, comfortable and personal.”

Birmingham Country Home Tour
This “simple Southern home” is a REFINED HAVEN for empty nesters who wanted to downsize with a lighter, cleaner, fresher look. Leaving their collection of antiques to the next generation they embraced new furnishings that adhere to an airy palette yet are anchored in the strength of the stones and stained woods used throughout. Masculine and feminine touches live harmoniously — a bold fireplace is softened by deep, cozy chairs… pecky cypress bedroom walls are a perfect match for hand-embroidered drapes. The relaxed living continues outdoors with multiple, open-air seating areas around the pool, front porch, and upper decks and are enjoyed by grandchildren and grandparents alike.
Frederica Township Country Home Tour
A lakeside home in the style of an updated ENGLISH MANOR provided unique architectural details and an open atmosphere on which to build. High ceilings and gracious windows give this home a light and airy quality. Warm neutrals and watery shades of blue complement the outdoors of this golf community property where “the view is everything”. Bleached woods, the softest of cottons and tactile linens provide a casual patina that perfectly suits this laid-back, fun-loving family of six.

Greystone Country Home Tour
Greystone, the historic Doheny Mansion in the heart of BEVERLY HILLS, is a prefect representation of the beautiful architecture of the 1920s. In redesigning the suite of the lady of the house for Masion de Luxe Beth reinstated a level of luxury, craftsmanship, and quality mirroring the house’s original construction. The drapery fabric—linen with silk embroidery—raised the bar in decadence. It also provided inspiration for everything else in these rooms, including walls covered in de Gournay silk damask paper and some exceptional furnishings provided by Dessin Fournir, Therien, and many others.

Pine Hill Country Home
Throughout the interior, a deeply considered LAYERING of textures, materials, and finishes offers an ineffable whiff of the idea of rooms long ago. Beth’s team carefully considered each piece of furniture, every textile, and all the lighting and accessories for functionality, classic appeal, and comfort. A Northern European–inspired palette of taupes, ivories, and earth tones reinforces a timeless feeling; the colors are soft, the materials forgiving.

Sea Island Country Home
Layers of NATURAL NEUTRALS provide a serene, welcoming spirit to this island home. Thoughtful choices of woods, wicker, and jute — mixed with subtle prints to add depth – provide both visual interest and a calming effect. Black accents peppered throughout help to anchor the rooms and provide “exclamation points” as well. This home was designed with large gatherings of extended family in mind. Therefore the kitchen, multiple dining areas and relaxing outdoor spaces were top priorities from the get-go.

This stunning ranch style house is perched high on a hilltop and nestled among the trees claiming its rightful place on a scenic 200-acre property in Texas. The owner desired an ample yet understated home with natural and simple architectural expression that would blend effortlessly into the landscape that surrounds it. Heavy timber columns and stone walls ground the home to the site. Reclaimed siding and simple barn-like structures give the architecture a sense of history and regional belonging. Referencing the owner’s love of the old west, many of the interior walls showcase the same stone and wood that is on the exterior of the home. This gesture alludes to a time when materials were not mass produced but simply gathered from the area and formed as needed.

Today we begin a tour of a stunning Atlanta home where the pallet was inspired by the home owner’s (Jane Hight) vast collection of blue-and-white Imari porcelain inherited from her mother and grandmother. Having served as the accountant for interior designer Lauren DeLoach for several years, it was natural for Hight to enlist the designer’s help when decorating her home. When it came to a color palette, the pair looked no further than Hight’s beloved family porcelain. “While we knew we would use blue, finding the right shade took some study,” says DeLoach. “We didn’t want a too-saturated hue, but we didn’t want it too pale. We also needed another color to add punctuation marks here and there, so the salmon hue came from the Imari porcelain.”
The small and compact English-style country home is 1,400-square-feet and situated on a sweeping pasture across from the Inn at Brays Island in South Carolina. The owners hired Interior Designer, Beth Webb to create a pastoral blend of Anglo and Low Country traditions. “It’s interesting how a house this tiny can be so INCREDIBLY LIVABLE. Inside, all that extreme verticality means the rooms feel neither contained or compressed. Plus the house has a beautiful orientation on the property, so there’s a lovely dappling of light morning, afternoon, and evening. We took advantage of this as much as possible, especially in the galley kitchen, which we designed as kind of a non-kitchen kitchen, a space that looks more like a sun-splashed garden room with that huge window.”
Children's farmhouse bedrooms are cozy and charming and provide easy opportunity to make a few seamless changes as they mature. Farmhouse-style is all about clean lines and classic patterns and is characterized by welcoming whites, a penchant for wood and folksy accents. In this post, I have included a broad range of girl’s farmhouse bedrooms that depict the traditional farmhouse aesthetic to rooms that introduce a bolder color palette. The goal is to create a room that suits your child’s individuality, is attractive, comfortable and flexible enough to grow with your child. That way you won’t have to redecorate for many years to come.
