Interior design is not Jennifer’s first career but it is her passion. Having worked as a reporter and anchor for many years, Jennifer understands the importance of story-telling and knows that your home should tell your story.
Since opening the doors to Barlow Reid Design in 2005, Jennifer’s been creating modern yet approachable spaces that allow her clients to experience livable luxury. As a mother of 4 and wife to her contractor hubby Chad, she knows first-hand the importance of having a functional and efficient home. Together they’ve renovated and designed numerous houses, learning from each project, she now brings that invaluable experience to you. That’s why she’s inspired to create spaces that work for each of her clients by digging deep into their passions, values and what drives them. From there she designs a plan to transform their house into a home.
Family is Jennifer’s greatest value and it’s something she brings into each project she touches. She is privileged to do what she does everyday and is grateful for her clients trusting her with their biggest asset.

“Jennifer worked with me to redo a number of rooms in my home. Her creativity, problem-solving skills and extraordinary taste are second to none. She helped me create beautiful rooms that make me happy each time I walk into them!”

“Barlow Reid transformed my main floor into a bright, modern and fun space. I feel like I have a brand new kitchen but all we did was paint the cabinets and added new counter and backsplash. Jennifer made it so easy by sourcing everything and giving me great choices, from furniture to lighting to art. She has such amazing taste, with everything grounded in the carpet selection. When furniture arrived, her team was available to receive it and put it in place, making everything was so easy for me. I am truly enjoying my beautiful new space! Thank you”

“What a fabulous experience it was working with Barlow-Reid on designing and decorating our house from top to bottom. I hesitated at the start of our renovation to hire a designer and thought we could just do it on our own. One trip to the tile store where I was completely overwhelmed by the magnitude of choices and how to ensure what I picked would flow with the rest of the space and I realized I was in over my head. Hiring Barlow-Reid was the smartest decision we made during our renovation! Jennifer listened to my ideas and was able to quickly develop them into something beyond my dreams.
Thank you Jennifer and Barlow-Reid!”
