Miami-bred and Los Angeles-based, Barbie is the Principal of Studio Palomino. Armed with a business degree and searching for career love, she hoarded dog-eared issues of shelter magazines for years before falling for Interior Design. Her not-so-secret love affair with beautiful furnishings and objects eventually led her West for professional training to bolster her natural talents. She studied Interior Design in 2006 at FIDM in Los Angeles before landing a job with a Hollywood hospitality firm. It was there she developed a unique high-low aesthetic enabling her to devise spaces that are eclectic, approachable, and visually appealing.
After holding several positions ranging from Project Manager to Senior Designer, she went out to forge her own path in 2012. Today, Studio Palomino juggles high-end projects that run the gamut from minimalist contemporary to idiosyncratic flash, always staying true to the client’s individual style and personality.
Barbie designs with the philosophy that interiors influence us in even the minutia of our everyday lives – where we drop our keys, take off our shoes or lay our heads are all decisions that can incorporate style, luxury and comfort into highly functional and inviting spaces. Our collaborative team of professional, experienced, and trusted contemporaries proudly serves celebrities, real estate professionals, homeowners and investors alike to create inspiring personal and communal spaces.
When she’s not stalking your Instagram, Barbie spends her free time with her genius toddler, rad husband and handsome Pomeranian. They love literal walks in the park and markets of both the flea and farmer’s variety.
From quick makeovers to full-scale remodels, the team at Barbie Palomino Design Studio will expertly reflect your personal taste and style.
