The new year is off to a remarkable start! Barbara Gilbert Interiors has received two Best of Houzz awards for 2016, as well as an award for 2016 best home theater design in Dallas. What an wonderful surprise!
Barbara Gilbert Interiors won “Best Of Design” and “Best of Customer Service” awards. The design award means our work was among of the most popular with the 35 million monthly unique users of Houzz last year. Only 3 percent of the 35 million active home building, remodeling, and design industry professionals receive these honors.
Customer service honors are based on several factors, including the number and quality of client reviews we received last year, as well as our interaction with the public on the site.
The third award we received was for a home theater we designed in Dallas, which is pictured above. All of the winners are featured in this ideabook. This award was chosen by Houzz editors based on the number of photos saved to ideabooks. We created a bright, inviting, and cozy space, with an unusual palette for a home theater. Our goal was to design a glamorous and inviting retreat in hues of cream, silver, and gold accents, with super comfortable seating and custom artwork.
Houzz is an indispensable tool for me as an interior designer. I ask clients to create Houzz ideabooks of their likes and dream rooms as we begin to work together. From these photos, we glean inspiration for everything from color palette and overall style, to specific details, like tiles, light fixtures, and furniture pieces.
Houzz also gives me an effective platform for showcasing a portfolio of my own work and creating my own ideabooks. This leads to interaction with a huge community of users from around the world, which I enjoy so much.
So you can imagine what an honor this is for me to receive these awards. It’s actually the fifth consecutive year Barbara Gilbert Interiors has been recognized by Houzz, since we created a presence on the site in 2012.
All of us at Barbara Gilbert Interiors are grateful for these prestigious awards, as well as the active Houzz community and our fantastic clients, whose enthusiasm for our work made them possible.
