About Barbara Lee Grigsby Design Associates Inc.

Rancho Santa Fe, CA

“When I design interiors, I tailor the experience to every client’s preferred level of involvement. I’m here to listen, to solve problems, and most importantly to create a home that reflects who you are.”

Like a painter captures the spirit of their subject, a skilled residential interior designer captures the soul of a home. For high-end designer Barbara Lee Grigsby of Rancho Santa Fe, California, finding the soul of a home is a passion that has driven her career for three decades.

With an experienced eye cultivated from eclectic European design techniques and influences, Barbara will expertly customize the nuanced details and individual essence of your home that reflects your personality, successes, and legacy.

Barbara has attracted clients from around the world. She recognizes that each home must be complete and incorporate some core fundamentals, revolving around a client’s everyday things, remembered places, and moments shared with loved ones. She believes that the home environment should delight the senses, ignite the passions, and provide sumptuous comfort, soothing continuity, privacy, and effortless function.

From European and Mediterranean to contemporary or classic, Barbara Lee Grigsby Design Associates implements years of experience, and quality craftsmanship resources and techniques, to create comfortable, refreshing, visually stunning homes.

Our mission is to make this home all about you. We want this adventure to create happy memories, bring smiles to your faces, and provide you the comfort and function that has been customized just for you and your family’s needs and wants. This milestone in your life and your family’s lives is what living better is all about.

Our showroom and offices are located in beautiful Rancho Santa Fe. However, we have had the privilege to collaborate on design projects nationally from San Francisco, Houston, Vail, and Telluride to New York City. Our projects have allowed us to work in such international places as the South of France, Italy to Tanzania, Africa. We love to travel, we have the know how and experience to do so!

Please give me a call today for a consultation, or to get more information about our design services.
