In the last 25 years Donna has helped me make the right choices from decorating my new home to updating and refreshing the areas as our needs and tastes have changed. She always keeps in mind my budget and has given me some great ideas that I would never have thought of on my own.
Donna Barr is both a pleasure to work with and a true professional. I’ve known her over 20 years, first as collaborator on major home projects (I was with California Closets), then on many large-small projects (including my home), and most recently on a church update. She has approached each project the same: carefully listening to and understanding clients’ wishes and needs, then applying her incredible combo of knowledge / experience / resources / communication / management. She has an innate ability to balance a client's concerns and dreams, budget and best products, existing conditions and future goals. Donna’s high standard – delivering a quality experience each time to each client – is evident. For me, that has translated into a rewarding project, one far better than I could have imagined without her guidance.
Donna is a joy to work with. She works hard to please us and taps every resource and "trick" she has up her sleeve. She is respectful of and accommodates my disability and my limited mobility. She is most professional, very creative, and makes you feel like you are her upmost priority. She understands budget constraints and works with us to stay within our financial limitations. The information given below relates to our living room redo (the most recent project) but we also used Donna to do a major remodel of our master bathroom and the total cost was over $20,000 for that project. I highly recommend Donna Barr Interior Design!
Donna Barr lives in a restored Victorian. I live in a Deco/Modern home. How could such a major difference in taste turn into such a marvelous creative relationship? She LISTENS! When we moved to Louisville, Ky, we trusted the decor of our new home to the person we knew had our style and interest at heart - Donna. Now she is working with us on our third project, retirement living. She is helping us navigate the roadmap of building and suggesting ways to update the look we love. Donna often uses the furnishings and art we already cherish plus a few additions that can "pop" our space. She is a magician and a muse. You can't go wrong with Donna Barr Interior Design!
My wife and I have worked with Donna over 30 years. Her attentiveness to our wishes and concepts were exceptional. Her professionalism and designs are first rate. Donna is and has been a pleasure to know and we highly would recommend her services.
Donna is a joy to work with. When working with my friends and myself, she has the ability to grasp our individual tastes and bring great ideas and samples to match each. She can visualize how to design rooms with odd floor plans and can blend color schemes with beautiful results. She refers clients to contractors with excellent skills and sees the jobs through to completion with amazing results.
Donna spent a lot of time with us understanding our desires and ideas. She frequently consulted with us on different ideas and samples throughout the entire design and build process. She supervised all parts of the project. We converted a close kitchen to an open space into our living room area. We are incredibly happy with the results! We receive many compliments when entertaining. Donna is fabulous!
Donna - Thank you for your participation in our newish home in Herron Morton Place. I still look at the fixtures you selected for us 17 years ago and think of you. I thank God for your gift and your lovely disposition. You understand how overwhelming all the choices are and you guided me in just the right path to make decisions that have stood the test of time. Everyone who enters our home for the first time says, "You have a beautiful home." This is just what I wanted. Much love to you and Peter.
We contacted Donna Barr to help with window treatments for our living areas. Donna was very responsive -- she promptly responded to our request, carefully listened to what we were trying to achieve, and provided us with several options with various price points. She maintained contact throughout the process, and we felt that she was trying to provide us with the optimal solution.
Always a good eye for aesthetics and practicality.
