I have a new, exciting focus for my career, and a brand new website! Many of you will remember my name from owning and operating “Barrett Interiors“, a successful retail decorating store located on the Hamilton Mountain for 13 great years. Well… In 1998 I closed up shop, so I could hone in on the areas of interior design I’m most passionate about, which is consulting, planning, and execution.
I have had wonderful success selling beautiful furnishings, window treatments, lighting, rugs and art, but I’m ready to move away from this part of the business.
I started my career in my early twenties doing consultations, recommending creative combinations of paint and wallpaper for my customers’ homes and businesses. This evolved into full design services, and many years of assisting clients to build new homes, renovate older ones, and planning and executing new office layouts and furnishings. Playing with light, and especially fine art hangings, are what I relish most about interior design.
Over the years I have assisted clients in many complex and simple ways, from building, renovating and decorating homes, planning, renovating and furnishing commercial spaces, and sometimes something as simple as selecting a new paint colour for a front door.
I was an A.R.I.D.O. member (registered interior designer) for many years, but recently retired when I made the decision to simplify my business. I’m entering a new phase, one that will likely last another 13 years, since that seems to be an important number for change in my career. Lucky 13!
Now it’s time to use all of these years of experience, contacts, and resources to stretch your interior design budgets, and create magazine-worthy spaces, without the extravagant costs. Please see services for more details , work for interior design examples, and be sure to like us on facebook, to stay in the loop.
