Joanna Barker, Owner and Designer, started her impressive career after receiving her Bachelor of Arts degree from California State University, Northridge. She began working in the resort design field as an assistant, and quickly worked her way up to Executive Vice President. Clients and projects were located throughout the United States and Mexico. When she left that position in 2006, the company was listed in Interior Design Magazine’s Top 100 hospitality design firms.
As fate would have it, she and her husband re-located to Orange County, where she took a position as Design Director for a firm that specialized in high-end design for country clubs and resorts.
In late 2007, Joanna departed that position to consider her next career move. She realized that only one position would be completely satisfactory: presiding over her own company.
Hence, Inspirations Interior Design was born, a name that reflects that decision, and the process of design itself. Inspirations offers complete interior design services to the residential, hospitality, and commercial communities, with years of success, experience and wisdom behind it.
Besides her professional experience, there are many benefits to working with Joanna. She has put together a team of seasoned professionals to work on her projects adding to the value for her clients. She will provide her clients with specifications, connections, and discounts available to her through the many associations she has established over the years.
She is an excellent project manager, with strong organizational and follow-though skills, which translates into project cost savings for her clients.
