WHAT OUR GUESTS ARE SAYING ABOUT THEIR EXPERIENCE
"Barbara, thanks so much for choosing me to launch your new show, Designerlebrity Talk, focusing upon interior designers with star appeal.

Our personalities are simpatico, and from what we see on twitter, your viewers seem to enjoy our naughty banter back & forth!

"In the most simple of terms, Barbara Viteri is a force to be reckoned with. In her self-deprecating way, she may deny the impact she has had on the interior design industry in such a short time, but trust me when I say that Barbara is a mover and a shaker, and not just when she is doing Zumba! Barbara’s sense of humor and no-nonsense manner make her the type of person others sit up and listen to. And it is because of this that Barbara is someone you want to have in your corner. She is a cheerleader for up-and-coming designers, as well as a staunch supporter of those more firmly rooted in the business. Whether she is providing funny anecdotes from her own home renovation, espousing words of encouragement and motivation by quoting “The Rock”, or letting everyone know about new things that are happening in our industry, Barbara has a voice and she isn’t afraid to use it. I for one always love to hear what she has to say."- Jennifer Flanders, Principal and Interior Designer at Jennifer Flanders Inc.
