Design Chef: Chris Barrett

So I’ve been browsing various design schools lately, dreaming of another life, another opportunity, when I stumbled upon Chris Barrett.  She is a Southern California native who founded her company, Chris Barrett Designs, in 1987.  She designs for residential and commercial spaces and has recently launched a textile product line featuring vibrant designs for outdoors furnishings. I just love the chic spaces she has created.  Her use of contrasting, yet complementary shades of color leave happy notes and an inviting feeling (even if all I have seen are pictures).  I love the infusion of the natural elements and unique furnishings in the environments she has designed.  A few delicious examples are available for your perusal.
