A native Midwesterner, I was the “artistic” one in a family of engineers. I grew up with practical values and German heritage where it was important to do things right the first time, like "buy once, buy well.". I was always interested in art and excelled at drawing and painting at an early age.
My dad was an entrepreneur and could fix just about anything, and he encouraged me to work at a hardware store in high school. Little did I know, that knowledge of tools and construction materials that I gained at that job would prepare me for my career in interior design!
After earning a degree in Marketing Communications and a minor in Spanish, I worked in the corporate world for several years. When I moved to Atlanta in 1992, I decided to go to design school part time. After graduating with a BFA, I discovered that I have a unique set of skills that sets me apart. Applying my creativity, practical know-how, project management skills and business acumen to the field of interior design makes me better equipped to tackle my clients’ projects in a professional and timely manner. And I have a team that expands to accommodate the needs of every project.
What I value:
Incorporating existing furnishings when possible
Splurging on a few key pieces that will last forever
Designing your home can be overwhelming, frustrating, and time consuming. That’s why many people suffer from C.H.A.O.S (Can’t Have Anyone Over Syndrome). My goal is to work with smart professionals and busy families to overcome C.H.A.O.S and create relaxing environments that reflect and showcase their lifestyle. Whether you’ve got young kids, you’re an empty nester, or if your kids have paws, you deserve to live in a stylish environment that is a reflection of you.
So if you’re ready to elevate your environment so you can enjoy your home instead of feeling like it’s always a work in progress, you’re in the right place! From kitchen and bath renovations to stylish, kid-friendly living spaces, I have the creativity, experience and resources to transform your home into a stunning, functional space that is truly your own.
“You don’t always realize how an outdated room affects you until you make a change. We recently moved to Roswell, and our kitchen was awful. It was stuck in the 1980s and my husband and I never wanted to spend time there. We hired Beth Johnson to transform it, and we got everything we wanted! New cabinets, counters, backsplash and appliances, refinished hardwood floors and even more room—thanks to moving the plumbing a bit. Beth was patient and always prepared. She really listened to me and often recommended different options to consider. Now, my friends tell me our kitchen looks like a room from a magazine. I’m happy about cooking again!”
Lynne Murray, Nurse, Roswell, GA
“I was Ms. Georgia 2016 and most people see me as a girly girl. My home, especially my living room, did not reflect that. In fact, it was so dark and traditional that I was reluctant to invite guests over and avoided it myself. Then, Beth Johnson transformed it into a glamorous oasis. She’s amazing. Time is a luxury for my husband and me so, when we decided to renovate our master bathroom, living room and patio, we needed a completely turnkey experience. After one conversation, Beth presented a plan that was perfect for us. We shopped for and bought all the furniture in one day. She vetted every vendor and stopped by all the time to make sure the work was done right. From the peaceful color scheme to the fluffy pillows, my living room makes me feel like a princess.”

“When my husband and I bought a home in Alpharetta, we wanted to give it a facelift and make it our own. We don’t have the eye or time for renovations so we hired Beth Johnson. Beth is a fun-loving, smart, hard worker. Our best planning meetings were done over margaritas. She updated our living and dining rooms, office and bathroom, and made our foyer so much more inviting by replacing the carpeted stairs with hardwood. I trust her to decide what furniture and artwork deserves a place in our home and what is destined for Goodwill. I am always recommending her to my friends and look forward to working with her again.”

“B Interiors was an amazing company to work with on our kitchen renovation. Beth was very professional and she made sure we had reliable and talented craftsmen working on the project. Every detail I wished for was executed down to the smallest detail. I would find ideas on Houzz and she made them a reality in my home, we couldn’t be happier with the final result. She was there whenever we needed to bounce ideas off of her or just needed someone to make the deciding vote when my husband and I couldn’t agree. We now have to the kitchen of our dreams, I am so excited to show off our kitchen to our friends and neighbors.”

“We have contracted with Beth for several decorating jobs at my 1960s split-level home. We wanted to update to a more modern design rather than traditional, and Beth had wonderful ideas within our budget range. She is timely, fun to work with and quite a professional. Her ideas helped us change our home and make it exactly what we dreamed! We purchased new modern furniture for our bedroom and Beth found fabrics that made the bedroom tasteful, fun, and not “too flashy.” She also arranged to have original artwork designed to match our taste and color selections. Beth is knowledgeable of all design styles, has experience, and works closely to find style at affordable costs. She worked well with our contractor, my husband and me. We all enjoyed our experience and the outcome is just wonderful.”
Marsha L., Retired Director of Non-Profit, Tucker, GA
“I would definitely recommend Beth Johnson of B Interiors. I had not worked with a designer previously, and she exceeded my expectations. Beth is committed to staying within your budget and works tirelessly to find just the right accessory or rug to complement the room. It was nice knowing that someone was looking out for me and my vision for a couple of rooms so that I could focus on other things.”
Elaine K., Entrepreneur and Busy Mom of twins, Johns Creek, GA
“I used Beth with B Interiors to help design my master bedroom. She listened to all of my needs and preferences and helped design a beautiful bedroom. She was able to use some of my existing pieces and make them look brand new. She brought me beautiful fabric choices with various textures. I love the way it all turned out. I would definitely use Beth again. She was a pleasure to work with.”
Nancy C., Medical Sales Professional, Alpharetta, GA
“Creative, timely, respectful and fun are all adjectives I use to describe my experience working with Beth. She is creative, has a keen eye for details and is realistic when it comes to project budgets. She knows that not everyone has an unlimited budget for their home projects. I appreciated her honesty and patience during the process. I’ll use her again.” Lori B.
