Hi, I'm Barbara...

As far back as I can remember, I have been preoccupied by all things related to home and interior design. From a very young age, I was constantly moving furniture around, rearranging things until everything was just right. Encouraged by friends and family who turned to me for advice, I turned that passion into a livelihood when I launched 'Simply Staged' in 2012. Slightly obsessed with creating that perfect space, I strive to achieve interiors that are cohesive, comfortable, classic and timeless yet simple, contemporary and visually interesting. 

Today's home buyers are savvy and sophisticated, inspired by the beautiful home design images they see on tv and the internet. They know what they want, but don't always know where to begin. The fear of making the wrong decision can leave them paralyzed so they make none at all and live in homes that feel unloved.

My sense of style has continually evolved. Refined and influenced through many years of personal and professional experience working on homes of varying price ranges from $500,000 to $27,000,000.  Having staged, styled and designed nearly 400 homes in Boston, on Cape Cod and the Palm Beaches, I have trained my eye to appreciate good design and can guide clients in making smart decisions about projects of any scale or scope. This is something I am most proud of, especially in this day of never-ending possibilities and choices!
