When meeting Barbara 13 years ago, there was an almost immediate confidence in her ability as a designer. She assessed my style and guided me in the selection of fabrics and styles. Her expertise resulted in window treatments that were more than I expected. Working with Barbara is like being with a friend whose opinion you value.

A very good friend had recommended Barbara to me. I had dealt with other designers in the past that I never felt quite comfortable with. I felt at ease with her from the start and found her to be quite understanding and accommodating when I explained what I would like. Barbara came to my home with idea’s and fabrics that were just perfect. Since designing my dining room and kitchen, I have now continued with Barbara in my living room and bedrooms. Every room is just beautiful and unique. Now all the rooms in my home are coordinated with each other and everything flows quite nicely. She is a pleasure to work with and we have become friends… Thank you..

Barbara Farro, has far exceeded my expectations. She was referred to me by a friend who had used her services and raved about her work. I always take a recommendation with a grain of salt as I am a “show me” person. In this instance I think my friend understated just how wonderful Barbara’s work was.

From the moment she entered my home, I felt so comfortable with Barbara. I explained what I needed done and Barbara took it from there. Her ideas were up-to-date and beautiful. I had the opportunity to use Barbara’s help and skill to redo my living room. The next project was the window treatments for the lower level of my home and again they came out beautiful.

The latest work was redoing my 3 bedrooms. Wallpaper had to be stripped, paint had to be chosen, as well as bed accessories and window treatments. Barbara had it all well in hand. My home is now finished and beautiful. As for pricing, I believe Designs By Barbara was priced well and all the work that was done was exceptional.
