A designer’s job is to clearly understand the nuances of a family. How they live how they entertain, how they want their home to represent them. The final outcome should represent the client’s personal tastes and style while respecting the architecture and their budget.
A native New Yorker, Barbara Owens moved to Texas and established her namesake business over 22 years ago. Her designs for both private and commercial spaces are steeped in Classicism with an elegant modern twist. With experience in both furniture and design, Barbara Owens has transformed properties throughout the United States and abroad.
Adept at designing a broad range of styles, her extensive portfolio includes Luxurious custom homes, Corporate offices, a Wild Game hunters lodge, Historically landmarked buildings, and Commercial Manhattan Show rooms.
She has completed projects for international clientele in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, a 400 year old Palazzo in the rolling hills of Tuscany and a custom commercial office in China.
Her expertise in design, style and trends was enlisted by a Fashion footwear Company as their Creative Director. Research for the Fashion Company is international in its scope and keeps her at the fore front of what’s happening in Fashion and in Home trends.
“My work is influenced by the artistry and magnificent landscapes from my travels throughout Asia and Europe. This is what makes me dream, what excites my imagination, and keeps me current, so that each space is unique. My exposure to so many cultures and Artisans is a constant source of inspiration. Mixing pallets and textures from around the world provides my clients with an unending source of unique products.
Every project has a distinct personality, which is determined, by the architecture, outdoor surroundings and the people that live there. Attention to these details enhances the final outcome and should exceed your expectations and imagination.”
