YES Spaces

Creating beautiful spaces where children can thrive. As the mom of five and a professional interior designer I share great children's rooms, family-friendly decor, DIY projects and stories from our home and yours.

Barbara is a winner of Top 25 Home Design Moms - 2013

Of all the DIY projects you've done, which was your favorite?

The very first YES Spaces DIY YouTube video we did making a Cat in the Hat lamp. I have a soft spot for Dr. Seuss!

What's your advice for moms who want to decorate their home on a budget?

The trick to re-furbishing items is to look beyond what is in front of you. Look only at the construction and the shape. Add some color and voila you have a masterpiece! There is some elbow grease in that "voila" but you get the idea.

Where do you find inspiration for keeping your home stylish?

I love to buy the European design magazines for a treat! Everything else has been all over the web by the time you get a chance to look through it.
