2009 PNE Prize Home
As Interior Design and Building Sponsor Coordinator for the 2009 PNE Prize Home, Barbara was given the task of sourcing and selecting all the building materials and finishes that were used in the home.
Traditional elements abound in this 3000 sq ft Craftsman Style home. Extensive use of mouldings and wainscoting bring drama to the foyer. The homes’ many features include porcelain ‘hardwood’ flooring, a double sided gas fireplace, fitness room, a free-standing soaker tub and large walk-in shower in the ensuite.
Once the home was built, Barbara worked alongside 11 very talented Interior Decorators to furnish and accessorize the home.
Each decorator was given a room to furnish and accessorize within the parameters of the style of the home. The end results were nothing short of inspiring. Many of the decorators added custom touches to their rooms. Handmade, one-of- a-kind stained glass cabinet fronts in the kitchen, a refurbished fireplace mantle turned custom headboard in the girl’s room and ABC/123 storage boxes in the nursery, are a few examples.
