Jackie Barnes Design is thrilled to announce the newest additions to our team – three talented and passionate individuals who bring a fresh wave of creativity and love for Cincinnati to our projects.
Born and raised in Cincinnati, Kassi’s affinity for interior design blossomed during her time at Miami University in Oxford, OH. With a Bachelor’s in Interior Design from the esteemed Department of Architecture & Interior Design in 2021, Kassi’s creativity knows no bounds. She possesses an innate ability to envision the potential and personality of any space, be it a simple fabric addition, a restoration project, or a complete home transformation.
Beyond design, Kassi loves exploring the city’s offerings. You might spot her at local breweries, playing cards with friends, and adoring the passing pups. Her kind spirit extends to her community involvement, where she serves at her local church, aiming to be a beacon of positivity in Cincinnati.
A University of Cincinnati DAAP alumna, Sarah brings a diverse perspective to our team, having earned a Bachelor’s in Architecture. Her experience in Seattle’s commercial architecture scene and Cleveland’s custom home design sphere grants her a wealth of knowledge in crafting unique, functional, and stunning spaces. Sarah’s love for Cincinnati brought her back to the Queen City, where she let her creativity soar.
Proficient in 3D modeling and rendering, Sarah can conceptualize any contractor drawing and select the perfect furniture and fixtures for the project, tailoring each design to the client’s individual style and needs.
Sarah is a true tinkerer at heart. Cooking, crafting, or upcycling, she adds her personal touch to everything she does.
Matthew, a native of southwest Missouri, holds a Bachelor’s degree in General Business and a Masters in Elementary Education from Missouri State University. With over 15 years of teaching experience, he transitioned his educational skills to his true passion: interior design.
Committed to fostering strong client relationships, Matthew excels in project management. He engages in the day-to-day work, handling order placements, contractor scheduling, and billing, ensuring a streamlined design journey.
Beyond work, Matthew seeks new experiences, enjoys travel, road trips, culinary adventures, and quality time with loved ones.
With the expansion of our team, we embrace the influx of possibilities. Our design team, now including Kassi, Sarah and Matt, increases our capacity to take on larger projects while maintaining an unparalleled attention to detail. The Jackie Barnes Design experience is now more exceptional than ever before!
We are excited to see what the future holds for our growing team. As we embark on this journey, we extend our heartfelt gratitude to you, our wonderful clients, for being part of our design family. Together, let’s create spaces that evoke beauty, functionality, and a profound sense of home.
