Barry Dixon & Lyford Print


With summer here soon, I had to show you this island home near Palm Beach by Virginia interior designer Barry Dixon. This Florida home was originally featured in the June 2008 Metropolitan Home RIP. I of course love the Chinoiserie master bedroom with its exuberant use of China Seas for Quadrille Lyford Print. I also think the color palette in the home of pale aquas, sea greens, and washed turquoises is quite lovely. I was especially taken with this quote by Mr. Dixon-"You're never left with the monotony of middle-of-the-road-purchases if you buy high and low." Amen.

Colorways for Lyford Print

this is a spectacular home, these blue-grey-beiges are exactly my colours. But the bathroom, wow! I'd be in there for hours!

Beth,

Barry's work is so fabulous. I love this home and the fabric in blue colorway is my favorite!

Loved your featured design on The Shiny Pebble.

Wouldn't you just die for that green glass chandelier? Mediocre me would never imagine that it could look so livable as in this setting...
