Here at The Honey Bulb, we take style seriously especially when it comes to home decor. We believe in adding timeless classics to our style and we are so glad to have found an Interior Design expert for our team that feels the same way!
I sat down with our Interior Design expert Barbara Borges, of Barbara Borges Design, at the beautiful Disney Springs in Orlando, Florida, where she told me all about how she got started and where she finds inspiration for her designs:
Meet Barbara Borges
Me: How did you discover your passion for design?
Barbara: About 11 years ago, I was working on plans for my own apartment. My husband, Carlos, saw that I was so intrigued with the project that he asked me “Why don’t you invest in this as a profession?” and I thought, “why not?” So I began taking design classes and participating in design events until I finally opened my own design business. So far I’ve done 390 projects and have been featured in 5 magazines!
Me: How would you describe your design style?
Barbara: I love to work with practical designs. Clean and simple. I like using space for function and not just for style. I’d rather space be functional and easy to use than for it to be over embellished but crowded.
Me: Where do you find inspiration for your designs?
Barbara: I like to work with my own style. I follow my own instincts. Design trends I work with usually have to also work with what will please my clients. I am also attentive to new products and technology being released and try to incorporate those into my design as well.
