Meet Sonia Barney
I'm Sonia Barney, Owner and Principal Designer
I’m a designer, plain and simple. I have a strong math-minded, nerdy side that may not be typical in Interior Designers. I love to solve problems - I prefer designing kitchen cabinets in CAD to fluffing pillows. My design solutions are organized and balanced. Details and quality bring me joy.
I’m an expert in my field, that means I’m always learning, investing and honing my skills. You can trust me to advise you, I’ll be honest, punctual and have an empathetic listening ear. I have your best interests at heart.
My down-to-earth personality will make you comfortable. I create client relationships with integrity, telling the truth is more important than my ego. I love working with clients who are ready to invest in the right solution and quality design.
I have a Bachelor’s Degree from Brigham Young University-Idaho and graduated from a fully accredited Interior Design Program (previously referred to as FIDER) in 2006. I worked as a high-end kitchen and bath Designer in Scottsdale, Arizona before returning to Idaho to teach Interior Design at my alma mater and raise my two special needs boys.
Sonia Barney Design became official in 2015 when I realized that if I wanted my career to flexible with my family needs I would have to build it myself. And it has surpassed by wildest dreams. I’m so proud and grateful everyday I get to share my passion for elevating designs and creating a positive impact in peoples lives. I continue to run a family-oriented business, inside and outside, not just in design but in the culture with my employees and clients.
