{designer profile: barrie benson}

I just love to look through the porfolio's of designers I admire, it's such a treat! Today's feature is on the lovely Charlotte-based interior designer Barrie Benson. Her work is the perfect mix of modern and tradition, and I adore the dash of youthfulness every space contains:
















That is a whole lot of goodness in one post; isn't her work stunning? Perfect amounts of classic chic and fabulous whimsy. See more of Barrie's portfolio here.

Beautiful profile Nancy! Love the citrus green upholstered sofa in Barrie's design above! I wish I had more guts and tried something like this!

You were right about the dash of youthfulness! She seems to have it figured out with the art too. Great use of color!

I love these designs. It proves that patterns can really make a room. Must go look for cool wallpaper now...

She is very talented and definitely not afraid to mix color and pattern. I think the book on the coffee table in the 2nd image says it all ... more is more.

Love the rich and luxe rooms! Totally hollywood but not over the top. Don't you just love the navy blue glasscloth wall with the electric green sofa with dark contrasting pipping? Mouth watering gorgeous!

Another fav is the black and white wall paper in the bathroom. Mod and Chic!

The use of faux bamboo mirror by the side table is unique and practical: to reflect light and perhaps the lady can use it a little touch up.

My heart skipped a beat when I saw the ram head coffee table! I happened to own one in white!

I like Barrie's sense of style ..... on the traditional side. I love his choice of wall papers! The blue grass textured one is stunning and that bathroom, I could spend hours in.

Barrie is such a nice person! I admire her work! She is a fellow Charlottean!

I love the color mix and that kitchen with the bright orange/red drapery! I like the relaxed yet put together feel. These rooms look like fun people with things to do live in them!
