With much anticipation, the regardfully executed and published Gracious Rooms by Barbara Westbrook has arrived! Westbrook Interiors has acquired truly exceptional pieces from Robuck over the last decade-plus. Recognizing carved bergeres covered in decadent velvets, 17th century frames now mirrors, uniquely styled consoles, important center tables and inlaid credenzas in the surround of W.I. appointed homes could not have been more inspiring for us. Barbara, along with her lead associates, Kim and Elizabeth expertly blend sophistication and approachability in ways so authentic to the personality of their client that you have to actually search for a signature style. While they are well-known for bridging the old and the new, the ease at which they achieve this principle is beyond talent. Gracious Rooms lifts the veil on the deliberate principles that Westbrook Interiors rely on to achieve their “four guiding lights” of interest, beauty, personality and warmth in all of their projects.
Gracious Rooms would compliment the coffee table as much as it would enrich the library. Barbara generously shares beautiful imagery and design philosophies that can be applied to any home aspiring for thoughtful living. In addition, a handful of images from the book are below along with available inventory to help achieve the look.
Stay tuned! The last couple of months found us traveling, buying and a week ago receiving over 120 pieces! We are working hard to make everything available online as quickly as possible. Please don’t hesitate to send requests as it is quite possibly in the queue!
Kindest Regards, Kristen
