One of the fun ladies in Layla’s neighborhood of Pike Road is Cindy Barganier, a talented interior designer, who has a great eye for putting homes together. I loved hanging out with Cindy at The Chapel Market and she has such an energetic personality to go with her design talent. I knew she was a designer, but just took a look at her portfolio and wow, is it amazingly beautiful. With 30 years in the industry, she really has a talent for this and I wanted to share it with all of you too. Here’s Cindy’s bio from her website:
Cindy holds a BS from Auburn University in Interior Home Furnishings and Equipment (now called Interior Design). At Auburn, she served as Vice-President and President of the School of Home Economics and was a member of the National Dean’s List. Guest lecturer and juror for senior design projects at Auburn University from 1982 until 1992, she serves on the Board of Advisors for the Department of Human Sciences, Auburn University; and has developed and taught several classes at Auburn University Montgomery Continuing Education. As founder of Design Symposium, 1984, she was guest lecturer alongside internationally acclaimed designer, Raymond Waites, of New York City. In the summer of 2001 she and daughter, Megan, lived and worked in New York City where Megan interned for Raymond Waites Designs.
Interior Designer Cindy Barganier is also an accomplished designer of fabrics and furniture. She sold her first fabric design, based on an old garden gate, to Duralee Fabrics of New York. That fabric has since appeared in popular design magazines and trade-only showrooms. In 2013 she introduced her own line of fabrics inspired in large part by the Highway 30A area of North Florida and her work there. “The blues, turquoise and whites of sky, surf and beach combine with the vivid colors of amazing sunsets to create the palette,” she says. Her line is carried by Travis & Company at the Atlanta Decorative Arts Center and may be viewed on this site under Products/Fabric.
So, you can see that Cindy is multi-talented, having designed her own fabric line too. I love her traditional style mixed with more contemporary items to really kick up a room.
Here’s one space that she redid and when I looked at this as the Before, I thought, how can she improve on THAT! Beautiful, right?

But, when I got to the After pic, I could see the vision she had and wow, is it gorgeous! Simplified with softer colors and lots of texture and large pieces really make this bedroom feel calm and cozy.

Another project, Bunglow 7, with this adorable front porch.

This one is called Equestrian, for all the horse memorabilia throughout.

This is a Montgomery, AL residence that Cindy did. Such Southern elegance and classic features in this house.

Beach retreats are so fun and this one in Sawgrass hits the mark with beauty and serene colors.
This is probably my favorite space out of all of Cindy’s projects.
Another project in Watercolor, FL is also beautifully done.
OH, I love this porch!
I hope you’ll stop over at Cindy’s blog and say hello to her, she is one talented lady! You can see lots more pics on her Portfolio too.
