I went to the sneak peak preview last week for the Barbara Barry Home Collection 2011 for Baker. I went home with my sumptuous new catalogue and fell in love with the Barbara Barry Collection all over again. The celebrated Barbara Barry, known for her clean and elegant designs, layers in some unexpected finishes like Linen Lacquer, Celestial textured metals and bronzes paired wtih dark and light stains alike… Barbara Barry Home 2011.
Replacing parchment with her Linen Lacquer finish featured above in her Barbara Barry Social Study cabinet. Elegant and livable, here paired with her signature dark stained wood and touches of metal, either nickel or burnished brass.

Crisp clean shapes create an envelope for the room so that the things we live with have a place to exist, says Barbara. In her description of the collection and lifestyle photo shoot. Barbara said, “These uncomplicated forms open up space, and ground the room; they embrace our unfolding lives without competing with them”
Terrific & simple shapes to choose from.

Naturally, this shoot made me want to curl up with the catalog and a perfect cup of tea… oh yes, the swag bag naturally came with the most amazingly fragrant citrine tea. Oh, Barbara you think of everything.
