Barker & Frank

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

Who We Are

Having known each other for many years and having successfully collaborated on numerous projects, Jo and Beth took the decision to form Barker & Frank in order to combine their unique intuitive approach. Sharing the same ethos, combined with their professionalism, enthusiasm and sensitivity, ensures that their clients are always in safe hands.

Jo Frank

Jo began her creative career working in the fashion sector for royal fashion designers Elizabeth and David Emanuel.  Moving into the world of interior design Jo gained valuable experience within Europe’s leading design consultancy in the 1980’s and 1990’s, before being part of the partnership responsible for producing the design schemes for London properties owned by the Saudi Royal Family.

Jo has successfully juggled raising twins whilst continuing her interior design career in the Kent, Sussex and London area.  She has established a strong client base due to her exceptional attention to detail, enthusiasm, and her understanding of clients’ needs.

Beth Barker

Beth has worked in architectural interior design for over twenty years, and she is highly accomplished in both the private residential and commercial sector here and abroad.  She is one of a handful of specialists able to take you through from the initial conceptual stages and planning right through to soft furnishings.  As a designer and project manager, Beth has skilfully coordinated a wide range of developments, including hotels, show homes and listed buildings.  Beth is equally at home utilising her extensive knowledge of fabrics to produce one beautiful window dressing as she is with construction, conservation and building regulations.

What People Say

Jo worked with us on our renovation for over a year (curtains, carpets, sofas, paint colours, lights and rugs), always happy to help as much or as little as was needed. The time and dedication Jo gave to our project was truly valuable. Jo is someone who listens to the sort of look you want to achieve and will not rest until she has found solutions to satisfy everyone involved, this included husband, wife and in-laws at times! Jo is a professional, warm person, who will keep your budget in mind. Jo never forced her own style on us, she was happy to suggest ‘looks’ and move forward with the choices made during each meeting…even when these changed over time! I highly recommend Jo, I’m thrilled with our home and I know it wouldn’t look half as good without her.

Her attention to detail, customer satisfaction and after care is unlike anyone else I have encountered. She believes in the quality of the products that she recommends and the service she provides, as do I. Lynne – East Sussex

I have known Jo for a number of years and she has assisted me on several projects at our country house in Sussex and holiday home in East Devon. Jo is great to work with as she listens as well as offering her own ideas. Jo has a wide knowledge of fabric collections, wallpapers, paints and home accessories. She can also recommend the websites to browse. Jo has some fresh ideas and good taste and will always work to budget. She is trustworthy and honest and I would not hesitate to recommend her. Jan – East Sussex
