La Cienega Design Quarter 2013

“Much of the inspiration came from David Bowie’s White Light Tour! An artist’s interpretation of the Hindu lord of architecture looks down upon our spare white space of infinite design,” says Chris Barrett describing her #LEGENDS2013 window design at Ralf’s Antiques, Inc., adding,  “The space that can be interpreted differently by each observer.”

Known for her portfolio of custom residences and estates, Barrett’s unique vision has been well matched to the varied lifestyles of her clientele. Her work includes a Spanish Colonial residence in Santa Monica, California, a villa in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, and numerous high profile projects. She has taken on a wide range of commercial assignments, from the acclaimed Comme Ça Restaurant in West Hollywood and Hotel Oceana in Santa Monica. Chris Barrett Textiles, is a vibrant collection of outdoor fabrics, sold in showrooms across the country.
