    Barbara presents herself very well, showing to take your project and not let money be the issue, however my experience with her was not professional. We signed a contract and I prepaid her more than half, with the faith that she will follow through, but after she purchased few things for me online and I paid promptly for those items and choosing paint, she abandoned my project when she found another lucrative project that she wanted to devote her time to, later blaming me for not taking a decision on her suggestions, the project never saw implementation phase, just online shopping for my project. I am disappointed by her work ethic as the contract was never fulfilled, she charged me more than half the project fee and abandoned the project pursuing other lucrative deals. I feel betrayed.

    Response from Company:

    This review is a mistake Client agreed with me to do it over The opinions within are unfounded I offered to do anything including working for free to assist her. This is not my business process See other reviews to see that it is clearly an issue that was not solely my response to her unsatisfied needs. Every aspect accept purchasing was completed And she is the only client that demanded getting my price on everything. I will remove my critic when I see a new review. I have been waiting almost 2 weeks.

    Barbara is very talented. She helped me select paint colors to bring beauty and continuity through the entire house. I look forward to her assistance with furniture and accessories.

    5.0 Linda R. Potomac, MD

    I have been extremely pleased with the design services offered by Barbara Meyer of The B Design Group. Barbara has helped me select area carpets for five bedrooms, the upstairs hall, stairs, foyer, and office. The rugs look fabulous and the rug colors are so well coordinated from room to room. In addition, Barbara has provided expert advice on paint colors, furniture placement, and accessories. She is very talented in updating the look of your home and in using what you already own in the design plan. I also wish to point out that Barbara is always mindful of your budget when making suggestions. I have been so pleased with Barbaras design ability that I have now hired her to help me update my living room and family room. Last, but not least, Barbara is a delight to work with. She has a very warm personality, and she is a lot of fun. I highly recommend her for all design services.

    Excellent at space planning which is what I needed. Barbara has a great eye for color and choosing appropriate fabrics etc. to complement and tie each room to the other. Vendors also provided quality work. I could not have done my reno without her expertise.

    Think this is a description of a 5 star project

    5.0 Thomas W. Alexandria, VA

    This was the first interior design project I have ever undertaken, so it was crucial that the person I hire have a clear vision of what my living room should look like. Barbara had a lot of great ideas, including many things that had never occurred to me. I have absolute faith in her taste when it comes to selecting furniture and art, and I am very, very happy with how my home is going to look when we are finished.

    5.0 Linda B. Washington, DC

    Barbara was a pleasure to work with. She helped turn my house from a nice space to a comfortable home that reflects both my families needs and personal taste in a very short amount of time. I appreciated her focus and her ability to prioritize the details of the project. I couldn't be happier with the result.

    5.0 Washington, DC

    Barbara was able to succesfully understand, complement and implement my vision for the decoration of my flat. She managed the whole process turnkey, making it very easy for me. She was always accesible and in a positive mood, making the process really enjoyable. I strongly recommend her
