Interior design, rooted in spaces that are classic, yet clean and modern, Charlotte Barnes’ aesthetic is grounded in a stylistic mélange of luxurious materials — an eclectic mix of the contemporary and antique with attention to detail and a measured restraint.
Known for creating elegant, warm and intimate spaces, Charlotte was honored with an Innovation in Design Award and inducted into the New England Design Hall of Fame in 2015. Her work has been featured in publications at home and abroad including British House & Garden, Elle Decor, US House & Garden, CT Cottages & Gardens, New England Home and New American Luxury.
An early career in fashion, at Ralph Lauren Womenswear in New York and London and Pomellato USA, Charlotte honed her appreciation for interior design and visual decoration while living abroad. When her own London home was published in British House & Garden in 1995, Charlotte Barnes Interior Design & Decoration, LLC was born.
Collection Charlotte Barnes, a 30-piece furniture collection, was launched in 2014. Charlotte designed this furniture collection to provide her clients with access to the special pieces that often will make a room, but can be difficult to find, one-by-one. The 30-item collection includes sofas, chairs, mirrors, bar cabinets, stools, desks, coffee, end and dining tables and lighting. Each design combines classical and contemporary references in a sleek, elegant way.
From refined city apartments to residential and commercial spaces in England, Spain, Colorado, New York, Connecticut, Florida and The Adirondacks, Charlotte Barnes’ work includes projects in East Hampton, London, New York City, Greenwich, Nantucket, Watch Hill, Newport, Martha’s Vineyard, Palm Beach and John’s Island.
