Becca Casey’s work for her firm Becca Interiors weaves a warm aesthetic, informed by her upbringing in the English countryside. Her lifestyle brand Ayr Barns, which started as an ecommerce business, created an opportunity for customers to collect her handpicked home finds. With a new Westport space set to open this fall, shoppers can step into her well-appointed world.
“At Ayr Barns and Becca Interiors, we hope to embody a space that manifests a simplified way of life,” says Casey. “As we go through life collecting memories, we believe our homes are the best reflection of that. A curation of little memories and artifacts that fill space in our homes, but also in our hearts and minds. We want to help you discover items that help you thoughtfully design a personal space, and that nurture your time spent at home.”
Pieces at the store celebrate the importance of family and are chosen with the goal of enriching customers’ lives. Tabletop, textiles and wellness products sourced from artisans around the world are styled under the exposed beams of the picturesque barn setting that embodies the brand’s “slow living” philosophy.
The retail location will also be home to Ayr Barns’ new café, Cabbages, serving seasonal lattes, baked goods, and fresh to-go items. Community is central to the Ayr Barns vision, which hopes to transport clients to a calming and familiar environment.
Casey hopes to foster this feeling with intimate community events, including tablescape design classes, floral workshops, and other experiential classes with local artisans.
