Up Close with Barbara Hawthorn

Meet Barbara

Name an heirloom you’d never part with and why.
There is nothing I own that I would not be willing to give away if I knew it would be cherished.

I live in...
A 1970s redwood contemporary in the woods with lots of glass to let in natural light and connect with nature.

I obsess over...
Everything. I am a perfectionist and it translates into every area of my life.

What famous person’s home would you love to design and why?
I like to make all my clients feel like celebrities. Even if you can’t be a celebrity, live like one!

What is your favorite color combination and why?
I have never met a color I didn’t like. I look for colors that resonate with clients and have techniques to establish what they will find most joyful and satisfying.
