Critique: "Barbara Barry has provided an exclusive look into how she achieves a nurturing and beautiful home...revealing her principles to design and offering up how to incorporate them into our homes. If we can't get her in our house having her on the shelf is the next best thing!" "Society Diaries Magazine" "Thankfully she is sharing her philosophy in what will become a collector's tome for her fans and design aficionados alike...her book covers the basic principles and application of good design, as Barry shares her tricks of the trade. It's truly a beautiful book and long overdue." "Array Magazine ""When you open "Barbara Barry: Around Beauty", you step inside the designer's world. Barry approaches the book almost as if it were her diary, sharing how she finds inspiration in the world around her. Stories about previous projects are interspersed with the objects and vignettes that move her...The book is a passionate study in discovering what moves you, and how to use that to create unforgettable interiors." "Veranda Magazine""Barbara Barry is, of course, one of the doyennes of interior design and her aesthetic of pared down, uptown and quiet glamour has inspired many, including this writer." "Forbes.com""In this, her first book, she uses stunning photography and carefully composed prose to explain how you can achieve her well-ordered and Zen lifestyle." "Washington Post"."..gorgeous new book....showcases a refined, sensual, well-ordered aesthetic that will leave you dreaming of room makeovers for the New Year." "Sheridan Road""This is a biography, a memoir, and idea book, and it is provocative and beautiful. A jewel box, indeed, and I'd love to know so much more." "Stylesaloniste.com"
