“I was blown away by the final presentation of our family room! Barbara took the time to understand our preferences in style and taste and was able to develop a beautiful living space that reflected them. We couldn’t have been happier with the whole process and her attention to detail!”

“Had the pleasure of working with Barbara when my wife and I needed help decorating our new home. After getting a feel as to our preferences, she made fantastic recommendations that we would never have considered. We trusted Barb’s expertise and could not have been happier. She cultivated my wife’s good taste while tactfuly discounting my suggestions without making me feel like a clod. Kidding aside, her selections have made our home warm and inviting. The treatments look professional while maintaining a modest feel. Installation was swift and efficient. Will certainly be using her skills again soon.”

“After spending hours trying to figure out how to arrange our awkward family room and living room we decided to call Barbara. She made the process of decorating our home so easy and saved us time and money.  She worked around our schedule and time frame and pulled together a beautiful presentation that translated into a gorgeous and comfortable home. When we walked into our home on the day of installation, the completed rooms gave us a big “WOW” moment that exceeded our expectations.  We are truly thrilled with the completed rooms and pleased with how stress-free the whole process was.”

“As co-chair of the design committee for the previous Harrisburg Symphony Society’s Designer Showhouse I had the opportunity to meet many of the region’s top interior designers as they worked on their designs for the house. In that capacity I had unfeigned insight into the designer’s abilities, design flair and disposition. When it came time for me to update my home, I called Barbara. Her design savvy was an important component of why I selected her, but equally important was her friendly, pleasant, and affable personality. It was a pleasure to work with her.”

“We recently remodeled our kitchen this summer. Decorating Den helped with the window treatments, walls, accessories, tile that really pulled the kitchen together. I am ecstatic how my dream French Country kitchen looks and have received so many compliments on it. She is enthusiastic, flexible, professional and worked within my budget. Highly recommend her.”

“Barbara has designed my living room, dining room, and two bedrooms.  Needless to say, I’ve been thrilled with both her designs and professionalism.  She offers truly custom furnishings, items you cannot purchase in a furniture store and best of all, she came to my home and incorporated the items I wished to keep with new pieces for a totally pulled-together look!”

“Barbara Tabak has quite an eye for mixing color, texture, and style while keeping your preferences and tastes at the forefront of her ideas. Barbara did a beautiful job in the living room and dining room of our new home 7 years ago, finding pieces and a rug that worked with what we already had and doing a beautiful job with our window treatments. When it was time to tweak the master bedroom, we called Barbara once again. We didn’t think of calling anyone else!”

“Barbara is also very personable and easy to work with. She is very busy, but it was easy to schedule appointments with her, and our projects were finished on time. The installers who work with Barbara are very courteous and very good. Don’t hesitate to call Barbara if you have a decorating need. She made our home very unique and very lovely!”

Elaine H.

“We had the pleasure of working with Barbara on a family room makeover. We were trying to do-it-ourselves but truly didn’t have the creative skills, or the time for that matter, to create the room we envisioned. We finally decided to call Barbara. Having never worked with a professional decorator, we were little afraid that our room wouldn’t reflect our taste, but Barbara listened to our ideas, looked at pictures of rooms we liked and created a room design that is exactly what we wanted! Our family room is better than we ever could have achieved ourselves.”

Jean & Carl

“Barbara created exactly the look we were going for for our TV room. It’s a tight space but she found the perfect furniture to fit right in and still keep it the clean look we wanted with bright accents. We’ve gotten tons of compliments and we love our new space!” 

Beck Z.

“I hired Barbara to help me modernize my outdated family room and living room. I told her at our initial appointment that I wanted grey as the paint color in the family room and white wainscoting in the living room. When Barbara presented her design proposal I was thrilled that she listened to me and based the design selection she made on my two initial requests. She worked with my vision for a gray painted room and added supporting colors for the furnishings to make the color scheme distinctive. Barbara made suggestions that I would never have implemented on my own. For instance, she suggested that the wainscotting be installed at 70 inches and painted a charcoal grey to showcase my white piano and she mixed a variety of patterns and styles that I never would have put together myself. Barbara’s design sense culminated in the creation of two gorgeous rooms that are beyond my expectations. I highly recommend her.”

“Barbara was great to work with. Her design ideas we’re unique and beautiful. The plan that she put together for me far exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend her.”

“Very Professional and great ideas! Highly recommend her services.”

“I always thought that hiring an interior designer was for the fussy and formal people who don’t have a clue what they want or need. Being a very particular person about what I like and don’t like, I didn’t think I needed any help. Until I wanted to paint my formal living room red. Once my husband saw how frustrated I was getting (and the countless sample colors painted on the walls, and none of them were right), he encouraged me to bring someone in to help. Through a mutual friend, I found Barbara. She came to the house, looked around, talked with me and understood what I was going for. We were able to quickly narrow it down to about six shades of red. We put samples on the wall (taped, not painted), and I looked at them in the morning, afternoon and evening. Natural light and electric lighting. Sunny and shady times. Quickly, I was able to narrow it down to two. She came back about two weeks later, and together, we found the PERFECT red. It also had huge impacts on the room and the art in it. I am forever grateful for her expertise help, so I didn’t drive my husband completely over the edge! Can’t wait to have her come help with another project.”
