At West Coast Living Thomasville, we are always thrilled to discover new collections that capture what we see as the essence of Coastal living. We’re even happier, however, when we can bring those pieces home to our clients, which is why we are proud to introduce the Newport Collection by Barclay Butera.
Throughout his career, the acclaimed interior designer has redefined luxury by combining traditional elements with approachable elegance and a fresh take on coastal chic. Drawing inspiration from travel, architecture and fashion, he creates rooms that we’d be thrilled to see in our own homes.
His Newport Collection reflects his California style. As he explained in his blog: “I live in Newport Beach, California, and used my personal lifestyle as an anchor to the Newport Collection. Inspired by the coast, it is relaxed yet sophisticated and evokes a fresh approach to casual traditional living.”
The collection comes in two finishes. “The two primary wood tones I picked – Sandstone, a lighter wood hue, and Sailcloth, featuring a custom whitewash — are complimented with five accent finishes,” he noted, and “I’m loving our signature raffia products that come in natural, marine blue and sea glass green.”
Of course, the collection features fresh elements that update his classic pieces. “I am a big fan of pattern, and you’ll often see me layer textiles and color in my design projects. For this collection, we had a lot of fun selecting fabrics in my signature Barclay blue, white, ivory, taupe and gray. You’ll see bold geometrics, stripes, chinoiserie and of course animal print throughout my textiles,” he noted.
To get the look, start with these fantastic pieces and then layer on the colors, textures, patterns and accessories that speak to you and reflect your own take on coastal chic! Stop by any of our showrooms to experience the collection and to work with one of our designers to bring the look home to your house.
