Featuring Barrie Livingstone
Transforming dreams into living art, interior design is much like other creative endeavors but with the added benefit of transforming spaces, lives, and possibly even changing the way we view and interact with the world around us. Reminiscing over his beginnings and the journey his career has taken him on, British born Barrie Livingstone is no stranger to celebrity or the trappings of extreme wealth. Recalling his beginnings in Miami to his work in Malibu, Livingstone describes his talent and the need to create as an addiction that compels him to create and move the needle forward.
“When I first became a realtor walking through these incredible Malibu and Beverly Hills homes, I was struck by how little many realtors knew about the cost of design and what it costs to renovate. Things have shifted dramatically since 2010 as the popularity of home remodeling shows has peaked. I have a list of items that need to be done to make a house look its best. These include ensuring all electric switches and plugs match, never painting hinges, and ensuring every light fixture is in clean and good working order. I sat down to put pen to paper, and I wrote 24,000 words in three weeks.“
