The Client wanted a space that spoke to her, even though the trend was gray, gray, gray.

Intent on being true to her own style, the client embraced color and tradition – with a fresh, modern twist and a nod to the current gray trend.  The formal living room was unusual – there was no fireplace or other focal point.  A focal point was created by using one mirror – three times.  Centered on the mirrors, console table and lamps is a comfortable conversation area that anchors the room.  A daybed in the bay window invites relaxation.  The new focal point for the living room is framed by the entry from the double height foyer.  The Client’s collection of black and white photography flows throughout the home.

We hired Barbara to design several rooms on the main level of our new house -- we told her we wanted them to be sophisticated and polished because they are the rooms we entertain in but we didn't want them to be so overdone that we'd be afraid to use them.  Barbara delivered! Not only did she suggest excellent choices for each of the rooms, there was a unity and flow among them.  But she didn't take over: we were part of the process, as she respected our thoughts and concerns and integrated furniture and artwork that we wanted to keep into her design.  She even prioritized the room that we hated the most! On a personal level, Barbara is warm and friendly.  She is also a true professional who is responsive, reliable and considerate.  I would not hesitate to recommend her.
