STYLING & STAGING
Listening to your preferences and understanding your vision, Barbara will work with you from interior to exterior staging, optimizing your space with a creative design that truly reflects your style. Through use of carefully selected custom finishes and complementary fabrics, Barbara can transform a tired room with old rundown pieces into a vibrant place accented with one-of-a-kind treasures.
Barbara creates, designs, and offers simple but necessary items for the home that compliment a comfortable coastal lifestyle. She can customize most furniture with the fabric of your choice or create stunning, repurposed treasures.
Barbara uses classic, timeless favorites and repurposes as much as possible when working on a project. Thinking out of the box, she blends the old with the new, using reclaimed and antique decor with carefully chosen natural textures. She creates a welcoming, comfortable look with soft linens, lots of white with accents of color, warm patinas, distinctive lighting, and fresh flowers.
Whether it is a large or small project, let Barbara help you identify and incorporate your own personal style into your living space.
