Jackie Barnes Design tailors forever homes to busy individuals and families to fit them like a glove, transforming the way they feel and interact with and in their new space.
No project is quite the same. But our approach never wavers. At Jackie Barnes Design, we design and renovate homes that…
We believe a home is more than a place you live. It’s a mirror through which your quality of life is reflected.
In our opinion, mindful design practices are the true path toward a home that will serve you and your family for generations to come.
Our mindful design approach will help enrich the overall wellbeing and health of your home and family. Let’s transform the way you feel and interact with the rest of the world through clever design solutions and a holistic family approach.
A great designer doesn’t just bring your vision to life; they elevate it. That’s how we create spaces that are perfectly tailored to you and your lifestyle.
“WOW. Why didn’t we do this sooner?” is music to our ears. Our goal is to bring out the full potential of your home by highlighting what you love most and customizing the rest through a creative, sometimes out-of-the-box, approach that will both meet your needs and satisfy your unique aesthetic. In the end, you’ll have the home you’ve always wanted, one that fits your one-of-a-kind life.
Everyone deserves a home that makes them feel good. That’s why we believe interior design is a smart investment rather than a pretentious luxury.
Devoting resources to the place you spend so much of your life is important, and an intentional design and renovation process will ensure that you feel confident in how your money is budgeted.
Our team approaches every day as a new opportunity to provide…
As a homeowner, you shouldn’t have to deal with the full-time stress of managing the many details of your renovation or redesign project.
Instead, your home transformation should feel exciting and fun! We believe our clients should be able to live their lives and focus on the things that matter most with full confidence that their home, money, and vision are well taken care of — with no details overlooked or resources wasted.
And ensures our design choices remain…
The simple truth is that the choices we make for our homes do impact our planet and communities. It’s our responsibility to prevent that as much as possible.
We keep what you love, redesign what you wish to change, and responsibly discard or donate the rest. In fact, for every project we take on, we work with New Life Furniture Bank, a non-profit organization that – among other charitable endeavors – delivers donated furniture to vulnerable families in our community. Our clients can rest easy knowing we do our best to make the most out of what you leave behind.
Growing up, I moved between the West side of Cincinnati, Hyde Park, Columbia Tusculum and now I’ve settled in Wyoming, Ohio.
This city values a rich tradition and culture, so when people come here, they usually end up staying. In fact, it seems to me that everything in Cincinnati is made to last. There is an obvious interest in history here, which comes through in the way our homes are constructed and designed.
I started my early professional career as a Psychologist (B.S.) and Sociologist (M.A.). Therefore, I understand at an empirical level that our surroundings have a direct impact on our mental and physical health.
And that’s how my business was born, through a combined fascination with what makes people tick and a passion for beautiful interior spaces. This makes for a well-informed interior designer.
I tailor forever homes to busy Cincinnati families. I encourage my clients to start their renovation or redesign journey by investing in their gathering areas and common spaces. These rooms play such a large role—serving many functions and fitting the needs of many people. That's why these spaces – the kitchen, dining, and family rooms – are my favorite spaces to work on.

Born and raised in southwest Missouri, Matthew graduated from Missouri State University with a Bachelor degree in General Business followed by a Masters degree in Elementary Education. After spending fifteen wonderful years in the middle school classroom, he opted to apply his skill set gained in education with a longtime passion, interior design.
Driven by supporting others, Matthew thrives in creating meaningful relationships with our clients, providing communication and support throughout the design project. Matthew is results focused and excels at managing both small and large scale projects, being able to focus across the big picture as well as the fine details. Matthew will be a visible presence throughout your design project, but his role really begins after the design execution. You will hear from Matthew regarding order placements, contractor scheduling, billing, and likely a phone call now and then simply to say, “hello.” His primary goal is to ensure a smooth design experience from start to finish.
A lifelong learner at heart, Matthew craves new experiences, creative outlets, and opportunities to be surrounded by the beauty of nature. When not overseeing our design projects, you’ll find him traveling the world, heading out on weekend road trips, trying new restaurants, and enjoying the company of family and many friends.
When we work together, we’ll sort through your furniture and collect the pieces you’re ready to part with. Instead of sending those pieces off to some unknown location, we’ll place a request on your behalf for New Life Furniture Bank’s free haul-away service to come pick up those pieces and bring them to their site.
