Barbee James of Details Design Studio is a top notch designer and space planner. Our project consisted of a home renovation in Boulder foothills which took place while we were still living in another state. Barbee oversaw the renovation work, redesigned our kitchen,master bath, guest bath and powder room. She developed furniture placement, lighting, window coverings and paint. She even helped us move in. I would highly recommend Details for any project.

I hired Barbee and her team for remodeling the master bedroom. The project included a custom leather and wood headboard, new wall and ceiling paint, popcorn ceiling removal, custom roman shades, custom bedding accessories (bed skirt, duvet cover, shams and boudoir pillow). Details is a pleasure to work with. They provided detailed cost estimates, completed the work on time and to the estimates, and delivered creative solutions to bring my master bedroom dream to life! I would definitely hire Barbee James and her team for my next interior design project.

Thank you so much for all you have done to prepare our space for our arrival. When I walked in I felt like a child, so excited to see everything, and it is just beautiful! You were so kind to furnish and adorn everything for our comfort. Your heart was in this as if it was yours. The flowers, furniture, window coverings, and towels were just lovely. The whole family loves the new addition. Sarah said we should have built a whole house like this area. Your expertise in design has made this into a lovely home to enjoy now and into our future and we are so happy and grateful.

Thank you for the special chalkboard you made for us. We love having Boulder history in our kitchen. Thank you for helping us create our beautiful kitchen too. We are not sure what we love best but the faucet, marble & window are high on the favorite list. We are so enjoying the transformation to a spacious and stream lined kitchen. We appreciate your time, energy, and thoughtfulness through the whole project.

Thank you for the lovely orchid. We are absolutely thrilled with how the bathroom turned out. Thanks for all the hard work.

Not only did Barbee bring her extensive experience and functional creativity to these projects, but she added something unexpected. She actually sat down with us before hand and listened to us about our lifestyle and daily movements and then tailored her design to fit us, and within a reasonable budget…..Perhaps the most subtle aspect was keeping us from making a number of mistakes in space and design (and details) that we would surely have regretted for a long time with a less astute designer or on our own.

Details Designs helped me dress my daughters’ new bunk beds and give the master bed a makeover. Barbee was very helpful in establishing a palette of fabric options that was not overwhelming and within the style I had outlined. She was pleasant and helpful and dedicated to installation and follow through. Barbee kept to the budget and had very good suggestions.

You’ve put in time, enthusiasm and your incredible creativity to create that “home” feeling we are looking for. I am so excited about the “magic” that has taken place before my eyes!

Barbee helped me pull off a surprise remodeling project for my wife while she was out of town on a 3-day business trip. She not only dramatically improved the look of our home with her expert design choices, but she coordinated and managed ALL of the contractors and had them start and complete their work on time and within budget. Barbee’s contractors were all absolutely fantastic and there were no surprises. Barbee went above and beyond on the final day of the project as I was scrambling to complete a few last minute cleaning and staging tasks when she showed up at my house out of the blue and assisted me in getting the house totally ready for my wife’s return. I would highly recommend Details and Barbee for anyone considering a project in Boulder or Denver. She is amazing!

Barbee and her staff used their years of experience and design vision to produce the office environment that I was hoping for. I look forward to going to work every day in a space where I can enjoy enough tranquility to think through the challenges that I must meet in my business life. Thank you Barbee

In our modest first home in Boulder we had to do something with the 1970s kitchen (YIKES)... Barbee to the rescue. She came in and really got a vision of how my wife and I live and use our kitchen space. Then magic happened. She began talking out-loud with numbers and sizes of cabinet options and finally put together a sketch for us to give our contractor. We ordered the cabinets and the layout is perfect for us.

We gained space, the workflow is fabulous and it looks stunning.
