Senior Design Associate, Rug Buyer

Barbara was born and raised in Florida; bright sunlight brings her joy, so being outside in nature is very important to her!  She raised her children on the Connecticut shoreline and spent her early career managing Outdoor Industry Specialty Retail Stores… think kayaking, hiking, camping, and cycling.  After many years of traveling and leading store teams, Barbara decided it was time to make a career change and switch to another passion of hers – Interior Design!

Barbara’s design style is eclectic with a bohemian look, inspired by years of traveling worldwide.  She loves mixing old with new, incorporating texture and natural organic fibers whenever possible. Following no real rules, except putting together visual harmony.

After moving and traveling for so many years, Barbara’s one constant has always been to bring along her beautiful rugs into her living space.  Her own rugs are much loved and make any place in her home feel complete.  As a Senior Design Associate and Rug Buyer for Saybrook Home, she incorporates rugs as art for the floor to tie a space together and complete the overall desired look.
