Over the last nine years Justine has worked on a range of homes and businesses implementing her own signature style of laid-back interiors. Mixing up pieces from different eras and creating that uncontrived effortless look has become key to all her designs. Achieving that ‘thrown together’ look comes from years of savvy sourcing and constantly being on the hunt for new materials and local artisans who are willing to create bespoke pieces that won’t break the bank. Believing that the place in which you live or work should inspire, harmonise and ultimately make you happier, she strives to push the boundaries in every design and create spaces that are every bit as individual as her clients.

Justine worked in Project Management for fifteen years before gaining an Interior Design qualification from ‘Chelsea College of Art & Design’, it’s this business background that taught her the importance of completing projects on time and within realistic budgets!

Justine is also proud member of the Interior Design Collective. A group of specially selected members who all share similar aesthetics and ideals in bringing flexible and accessible design to clients nationwide. Her recent work has been featured in Living Etc and 25 Beautiful Home. See Press section for more information.

Based in Tunbridge Wells, Barkerdesign covers the Kent area. Please browse the portfolio of work for both home and commercial projects.


“Justine was a huge asset to our renovation project. She made the entire process almost entirely stress free. Even more importantly, she raised the finished effect from simply “nice” to “wow!” We have been blown away, not only by how amazing our house looks, but also by how well it works for us as a family and how accurately it reflects our own individual taste. We are both absolutely delighted with our stunning, new home and recommend Justine and her team whole-heartedly”. (Sarah & Steve Playle)
