“Outside In: Looking at Gardens and Views from our Windows
for Interior Inspiration”
Interior Designer

Inspired by acres of lush Virginia countryside, Barry Dixon is known for a distinct aesthetic that blends Western styles with global influences from a childhood spent abroad in India, Pakistan, Korea, New Caledonia and South Africa. With projects spanning the world, Dixon imagines interiors that infuse artifacts and antiques with present‐day motifs ‐ all preserving the history and personality of the home’s owners and their treasures.

His exclusive collections include furniture, lighting and accessories for Arteriors; showroom design and products for Fortuny; custom furniture and lighting for Avrett; fabrics, trims, and new wallcoverings for Vervain; upholstery for Tomlinson Erwin‐Lambeth; and The Naturals Color Collection by Barry Dixon for C2 Paint.

Dixon’s work is featured in Barry Dixon Interiors and Farrow & Ball: The Art of Color, both by Brian Coleman (author) and Edward Addeo (photographer) and Barry Dixon Inspirations and Fortuny Interiors, both by Brian Coleman (author) and Erik Kvalsvik (photographer). Dixon lives and works in his 1907 Edwardian estate, Elway Hall, located on 270 acres of farmland in the heart of Fauquier County, Virginia’s horse country.
