Home with an Artistic Eye: Greenwich by Beth Webb Interiors

You can see the distinctive Beth Webb Interiors’ touch the moment you enter this home: art is everywhere, not only in particular pieces such as contemporary paintings on the wall and sculptures on coffee tables, but in the very approach that seems to permeate the entire dwelling. (Note that “kitchen island” piece that opens to reveal fabric, thread, and other tapestry supplies!) Another key element here is a pleasant mix of traditional and modern: beautifully ornate wood banisters with carved spindles, wrought-iron chandeliers, and marquetry sideboards coexist happily with a rough-hewn stone mantel above a sleek white fireplace and an overall neutral color palette based largely on clean, pure white. Symmetry is another key here, in the tailored approach to landscaping that takes second place to a fabulous bay view.

The overriding ambience here is of “home” as a repository for treasures. African statuary graces a corner shelf unit next to French doors opening to lush gardens; a vintage high chair has pride of place next to a polished wood farm table, and a small ladder/stepstool holds tiny pottery accents on its “steps.” An antique carved wood chair is right at home next to two modern paintings and a stone sculpture. And a marble sink, almost too pretty to use, is paired with an unusual gold faucet, long embellished mirror, and long carved wall sconces. This home isn’t a museum — not with that splendid indoor pool just awaiting the next swimmer! But both indoors and out, this Greenwich home is a treasure of a place, filled with well-loved possessions, well-presented by Beth Webb.
