Barry Dixon Inspirations takes the reader through eight homes transformed by renowned designer Barry Dixon. From a cottage and a chic chateau to a grand estate home, with a high-rise apartment and a row house in between, we see the broad range of Dixon's decorating style and learn what inspired his colors and materials for each location.Barry Dixon, named the "2010 Master of Design" by Veranda magazine, has worked for such clients as Diane Sawyer and former Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist. He spent his childhood living in places such as India, New Caledonia and South Africa. This early exposure to many cultures and traditions clearly helped him to become a master at blending traditional décor with various colors and textures that are not forgetful about beauty and functionality.In Barry Dixon Inspirations, designers will learn all about what inspired Barry's choices for colors and materials for designs he created for a beach house, a renovated urban loft, and more.Designs include:
  • Montecito California Weekend Living Showhouse
  • Stately Living in Nashville
  • Industrial Redux in Corinth, Mississippi
  • Georgian Tradition on the Banks of the Potomac
  • Sky High Living on Chicago's Michigan Avenue
  • Delaware Shore Beach House
