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 pursue a degree in interior design. After graduating with a BFA, I discovered that I have a unique set of skills that sets me apart from other designers. Applying my creativity, practical know-how, project management skills and business acumen to the field of interior design makes me better equipped to tackle 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.
WHAT OUR CLIENTS ARE SAYING
“When we bought a house that needed extensive renovation, we were determined to make it our ‘forever home.’ Beth made it happen. Beth has an eye for quality, unique pieces you don’t have to worry about cleaning or maintaining. From high performance carpeting and fabrics to durable furniture. With four kids ranging in ages from 3 to 13 and an energetic boxer, that investment was a priority. She knows all the best vendors, from appliance experts to landscapers. Beth is fun to work with and was able to accommodate my husband's desire for color while coaxing me to be more adventurous. The stone fireplace with a cedar mantle and all the carefully curated accessories makes our large sunroom feel like a country retreat. Every room feels truly special. Thanks to Beth, our forever home is stunning.”
April Adriansen, Busy Mom of 4, Milton, GA
“For ten years, we talked about renovating our kitchen but were never brave enough to make it happen. We were concerned about how the construction would upset our lives and all the decisions we’d have to make. It seemed exhausting. Beth had worked with us on smaller projects and we trusted her to take on this challenge. She is so easy to talk to, very approachable and low key. By knowing what to invest in, she kept us from making expensive mistakes. The changes Beth recommended, like moving our refrigerator to the desk area and reconfiguring our coat closet, makes this space feel so much larger. The focal point is our bigger range with a decorative hood and tile backsplash that extends to the ceiling. We are thrilled with our new kitchen.”
Franklind + Lisa Lea, Alpharetta, GA
“We moved from Cape Cod to a 5,000-square-foot modern rustic new build with vaulted ceilings and an open floor plan in the North Georgia mountains. What we already owned didn’t fit our new home so we started from scratch. Beth is a real pro. Creative and organized and an excellent communicator, she’s just as good at the craft side as she is the business side. From the new furniture and bedding to the artwork and accent pieces, Beth made this cavernous space feel cozy and welcoming. All in nine months. Beth is so accommodating. To save us on the outrageous delivery fees we would have paid since we live on top of a mountain, she and her team delivered and installed the furniture themselves. This was the first time we used a designer and we were concerned about the cost. We could have never done this without Beth and would definitely use her again.”
Daryl + Kristina Dittmer, Mineral Bluff, GA
“We had our whole house gutted and were starting over. Working with Beth made it so much easier. Beth is professional, friendly, caring and considerate. She’s always respectful of my tastes and desires and then takes it to the next level. Beth put together detailed mood boards for each room with a range of options for us to choose from. One of our favorite rooms is my husband’s office with rich, masculine wallpaper that mimics animal skin. People go nuts about it. Beth added an amazing sunroom with black tile flooring that looks like slate. The icing on top of the cake was that she was here for the whole moving in day, helping me find just the right place for all the furniture and hanging pictures. I don’t know what I would have done without Beth.”
Tracey Gill, Cumming, GA
“We have a beautiful home but our kitchen was dated and inefficient. Beth transformed it into a place that’s a joy to cook and entertain in. She designed a fresh new layout and her team even moved the back wall to accommodate the new hood vent. My new kitchen has warm gray custom cabinets, integrated appliances, and hand-made sage green zellige tile. The new island has calacatta marble and more storage on the back side. Beth also designed a built-in banquette along the window as well as a butler’s pantry. I can’t believe all the storage. Beth is super organized and so easy to work with. Whatever idea I came up with, she made it come to life.”
Brittany Nassar, Busy Mom and Small Business Owner, Milton, GA
“It’s so easy to work with Beth. She started by remodeling the three bathrooms in our 26-year-old Alpharetta home. After that went so well, I knew I needed most of the rest of the house updated, including new hardwood floors, a redesigned front and back staircase, lighting and furniture. I love my game room that Beth designed around a unique armoire my mother-in-law painted in shades of red and turquoise. Beth does all the legwork and I am happy with everything she recommended. Down to earth with a refreshing sense of humor, she’s always on top of things with excellent follow up. We’re now completely renovating our Lake Hartwell home in South Carolina. Beth has become a good friend.”
Penny Hundley, Retired, Alpharetta, 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.”
Nova Pearson Kopp, Corporate Training Director, Roswell, GA
“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.”
Carter Ard, Human Resources Professional, Alpharetta, 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
“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
