An Expert Can Make All the Difference... 

You have probably seen photos or video of bathrooms in luxury homes on television or online at different real estate sites and said to yourself, “Wow – it would be amazing to have bathrooms that look like that!”

The good news – you don’t have to be rich and famous or have a mansion to have the kind of bathroom that looks good and makes you feel great every time you step inside it. You would be amazed at what you can do when remodeling your bathroom, regardless the size – and this is where an experienced designer is worth his or her weight in gold.

A Great Designer Will Guide you from Concept to Completion

When we work with clients, we act as your trusted advisor as we go through the design process and execution together. Your vision, personality and desires for the perfect outcome is what we use to help you guide you through the creative process.

Our real worth is in the ability to capture your vision, turn it into an actual plan, then execute the plan.

We combine and coordinate all aspects of your project – from idea to planning to creating to completion – all while keeping you on time, budget and manage the project.

A Great Designer Helps to "Tell Your Story" Through Design

Your home's interior can tell a story about you; who you are, where you’re from, the kind of environments you like most and more. A great designer helps you discover your story and then bring it life.

We can optimize the usability of your space as well as the look and feel. Working with our firm, we will take into account your vision or ideas, the size, layout, overall feel you want to achieve and the budget. Once you’ve selected a theme, we will then narrow down and improve on the details.

By working together, we can make a plan on what things to buy and what changes need to be done.

A Design Expert Saves You Time, Money and Reduces Stress

One of the most common reasons potential clients seek us out is when they have tried to do a remodeling or redesign on their own and it has NOT gone well.

So many times a person will start a bathroom remodel and redesign project only to get halfway through it and find out there were many more steps and people needed than they thought. It is a terrible feeling to be halfway through building your perfect bathroom, only to find out you forgot something critical and you have to tear everything out and start over!

Starting over can mean losing thousands of dollars, not to mention the added time to the project and the stress of remodeling crews in your home for extended periods of time.

We have a team of trusted contractors and vendors for sourcing the labor and materials. These are companies we have worked with extensively, we trust them and their work is impeccable. Having a trusted team like this ensures the planning and execution phases of your project go off without a hitch.

A major part of an our job is to make sure that you plan properly in advance. This means coordinate all stages of the project, make sure all the design, fixtures and materials are safe, highly functional, fit the energy and intent of the design, don’t overshoot your budget and most importantly – tell your story.

When I decided to turn my bonus room into a media room as a surprise for my husband, Joanna was the one person I knew who could get it done. We had exactly two weeks from start to finish, and one mistake would send the entire project spiraling out of control. The project was completed on time (actually a day early) without one single glitch. Every subcontractor showed up on time, with the correct materials, and was a professional at their craft. I could never have asked for a better outcome and Joanna was a master at directing each step of the project. I have used her on additional projects since, and would never consider a home remodel without her expertise and guidance.

My wife and I hired Joanna Barker of Inspirations Interior Design, Inc. to assist us with the interior design of our home. Joanna is a very talented designer with a great eye for color. Something that impressed my wife and I most was Joanna's ability to listen to our vision for our home, and then provide us several excellent options for furnishings and paint colors that translated our visions into a reality. As a result we have a home that we are very proud of, and have received numerous compliments.

I am an Electrical Contractor with over thirty years experience. I have been working with Joanna for the past several years and she stands out amount the many contractors and designers I work with. Joanna takes on every project with the same dedication each and every time. She turns out projects that are both functional and beautifully designed. I highly recommend Joanna for any design project.

We needed help! We had just purchased a 3200 sq ft condo built in 1988.

The floor plan was from another era having an enclosed somewhat isolated kitchen with low ceilings and builder grade cabinets and soffits in all of the wallpapered bathrooms, faded wood floors on the main level and mirrored madness in the master bath Our son had recently used the services of Inspirations Interior Designs Principal Joanna Barker and encouraged us to call her. He and his wife told us that her guidance would be invaluable and decisions easier and more informed when such a professional was involved.

Joanna was amazing! She has the ability to understand our style and bring finishes to us that we may have never considered. It was so interesting working with Joanna. She is so kind and generous of spirit and was well respected by the contractors with whom she collaborated. We took down walls and added others to achieve the desired openness and flow in our home. She was always available and was flexible when design elements needed to be reconsidered.

Her flooring design in our entry and main level is the envy of the neighborhood. All of our finishes throughout our home are so beautiful and top notch. Joanna's abilities have given us a new home of which we are so proud. We were so blessed to have worked with such a wonderful, caring and talented designer.

Joanna has so much experience and was very professional in her approach to my unique project. I was all over the place with ten different things I wanted to do to my home and she was able to understand my priorities and break it down into doable chunks so that my entire house would not be turned upside down.Thanks to Joanna renovating my house was very fun and I am so excited with the results that I cannot wait to come home each day from work!

Joanna Barker partnered with Stu Hunter of Hunter Construction to design, plan, permit and build our downstairs family room and outdoor patio last summer. I was impressed with Joanna's knowledge about color, use of materials, and furniture spacing. She was on time for meetings with us and accurate and fair with her scope of services and pricing. I have already recommended her to other friends and clients because I know she has the integrity and professionalism to follow through and make me look good.

Joanna Barker and her team listened to our ideas and helped us transform our lackluster space with their inspired design. They showed intuition, understanding of our tastes and vast knowledge in their work process. They set our expectations correctly, were organized and finished our job ahead of schedule! Throughout the process Joanna was always available. We could not be happier!

Mary Lou Yoch

Joanna Barker was recommended by our contractor when we began our home remodel. At first, we were not interested in hiring an interior designer. While we hesitantly agreed to meet with Joanna, it turned out to be the best decision we made. Joanna's professionalism and graciousness made the job seamless and effortless. She took our ideas to a new level, making a dramatic difference in the final result. Joanna's color, material, layout, and cabinetry choices transformed our kitchen, family room and game room. Throughout the remodel, Joanna always was available to answer our questions and provide a helping hand where she could. Her designing and interpersonal skills went above and beyond any expectations we had. We are incredibly grateful to have worked with Joanna.
