“We hired Barb as our designer for the complete redesign of the kitchen in our new condo apartment. She provided us with great advice and was willing to accept our suggestions throughout the process as the design evolved. The end product is great and we are very happy with it. Diane H-R.” June 23, 2011

“Thank you for an experience that was relatively painless, predictable and positive. The kitchen looks fantastic! Particularly appreciate the designer’s attention to budget issues, color preferences and willingness to spend some extra time and brain power helping to choose tiles and paint.

" As a complete neophite (sp?) to the world of home renovation, I was confronted with so many choices, decisions and options and had no clue where to start in  transforming a gutted l970s kitchen to something new and contemporary.  It was a pleasure to work with Barb and gain the assurance she provides during such a major undertaking and expense. With her help I was making choices I could live with and were within my budget. Whether it was helping to select paint colors,  meeting me at the tile store to figure out what on earth would work, or identifying where to economize and where to splurge, Barb was with me step by step and all the way so that all the components worked together in the end, even when much of the time what was obvious to her was not obvious to me.  I now have a kitchen that 3 years later is still a joy to walk into, to cook in, eat in and relax in. She went beyond the norm to take time with me and help me understand what was happening, and to reflect my realities and preferences in the process. With her help I made good choices and the many decisions needed for a room to look pulled together and function well. Building on her immediate sense of  optimum cabinetry arrangements and how to maximize limited space,  she also brought a sense of  style, design and color  that helped in a big way to transform my kitchen beyond functional and modern to exciting and beautiful.  Many thanks for the extra care and time and attention to detail. "

“Barb did a fabulous job of designing the new kitchen in my 200-year-old home. The design was both modern and efficient while still complimenting the original charm of the log structure. She dealt with sloping floors, crooked walls, and a difficult space, and still managed to design a beautiful and functional kitchen, for which I continue to receive many compliments. I would highly recommend Barb for all your kitchen and bathroom design requirements.”

“Our kitchen, designed by Barb, makes function meet fashion!” 

“Barb is a superb designer, and maximized the efficiency and workability of my kitchen, while at the same time collaborating on creating a beautiful end product.”
