buzz about barbara
When searching for an interior designer, one of your first questions should be about their prior work and clients. With this in mind, I share some comments and perspectives from recent clients to enable you to learn about me.
“The latest involvement Barbara has had with the Betty Ford Center is with the New Patient Entrance and Medical Facility. Being an architect, she has volunteered her time and spent numerous hours with the architects and designers to assist in designing the building which from this day forward will serve to welcome new patients and their families as they enter treatment. Barbara has been a key patient advocate in assuring that the new space will serve to provide a warm, serene and natural setting for current patients to receive medical care as well. Thank you Barbara!”

“Barbara Littman’s input into the design of our new student center was invaluable. Not only for her outstanding aesthetic and design sensibility, but even more for her ability to foster collaboration and understanding between ourselves and our architect. We had reached an absolute impasse, and Barbara stepped in, brought us together, and helped us craft a building design that exceeded all expectations. We could not have done it without her.”

As Interior Designer
“I just wanted to take a moment and tell you how much I appreciate your efforts in our locker room furniture project. You traveled to so many meetings on behalf of the locker room project, spent countless hours researching just the right pieces to fit, and drawing numerous designs to offer a variety of options.
Most importantly, you allowed me to “see” when it is so difficult for me to do so in the area of design.”
~ C. Vivian Stringer, Head Coach Rutgers University Women’s Basketball
As A Professor of Design
“I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed your class! From the very start when we began thinking of some way we could help the people of Haiti… to the museum project you inspired me…You are a great professor and mentor.”
~Sara Chwatt, Spring 2010 (Kean U.)
“The students were actively discussing issues and participating in this discussion with obvious east, enthusiasm, and knowledge acquired throughout the semester.
Ms. Littman’s detailed and finely executed power-point presentations further support the students’ evaluations of Ms. Littman’s teaching styles as thorough, informative and well-organized.
She is a true asset to Kean University… she unselfishly goes above and beyond to create a supportive and creative learning environment in the course.”
~Linda O’Shea, Professor and Coordinator Interior Design Dept., Kean U.
“Thank you for the encouragement and the positive feedback on my live/work project. I really appreciate your perspective and insight. It was a pleasure being in your class.”
~ Jane Wilson, NYU Design student
