  1. Such great style. I often see pretty interiors but rarely something that I would want every aspect of in my house. They are just so inviting to me.

  3. Love her and the fact that she is a good ole NC girl!! I think her real talent is mixing southern traditional with the unexpected.

    She is as adorable in person as her rooms are inspiring. I just joined a new workout studio and she was there. Love her work!

  10. I've met Barrie and she's darling! I'm fairly certain that some of the photos above were either her own home or the home of Laura Vinroot Poole who owns my all time favorite store, Capitol, in Charlotte.

    Barrie also designed the store.

    She most definitely has it going on!

  17. I'm obsessed with the Poole updated living room (#3). I remember it in Domino and I still can't get that house out of my mind. Some day some day…
