A Virginia native, Barbara Westbrook launched the Atlanta-based interior design firm Westbrook Interiors in 1992 after working under the guidance of revered Southern talents Nancy Braithwaite and Charles Gandy of Gandy/Peace Inc. For 25 years, she has made her mark on high-end residential and commercial spaces employing her signature style: tasteful, tactile, timeless and elegant.
Westbrook’s design vocabulary ranges from casual American and formal English to French modern, and her inviting approach to design has yielded chic results in traditional, transitional and contemporary interiors.
Westbrook credits her mother with introducing her to style at an early age, bringing her along to antiques shops and teaching her about Virginia’s rich architectural heritage. Those experiences led Westbrook to William & Mary in Williamsburg, where she received her degree in government, and later, to Atlanta, where she earned a degree in interior design from the Art Institute of Atlanta.
Her projects, which include vacation homes, show houses, large-scale renovations, spas and professional offices have appeared in Architectural Digest, Garden & Gun, Traditional Home, House Beautiful, and Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles, among others. Her first design book, Gracious Rooms, was released in 2015 and is available at the GCMA.
