As owner and principal designer of Barbara Miller Design, LLC, a full-service interior design firm based in Portland, Oregon, Barbara has designed magnificent spaces for adults and still does. After taking an active role in the education of her five children, Barbara gained a deep understanding of inspiring children through design. When she started focusing on spaces for children and their families, magic happened. In helping parents build rooms with their children, Barbara had discovered meaningful ways for parents to reconnect with their children. Creating rooms that inspire creativity and bring the whole family together is my passion, said Barbara.
Inspired by her love of family, Barbara developed the YES design philosophy. She is the founder of YES Spaces, LLC and the Director of Bright Ideas, specializing in interior design for children and families. Barbara is also the author of YES Spaces: Home Design that Nurtures their Nature. Barbara speaks and writes about designing to inspire children and connect family. If you would like your home filled with Barbara’s Bright Ideas give us a ring, she takes on a limited number of personal interior design clients each year. Consider yourself warned she will probably try to convince you to let your child’s room be included in her next book!
