The Equestrian Designery, a full-service Los Angeles-based Interior Design studio, was created by Diane Barber to combine her accomplished Interior Design business with her lifelong passion for horses and her profound appreciation for the human/animal bond. The Equestrian Designery offers clients an extraordinary mix of talent, creativity, experience, knowledge and horse sense while providing professional design services that enhance the living spaces and lifestyles of people with horses.

Diane has been an avid equestrian since Western trail riding as a child with her family's Quarter Horses. She later fell in love with Spanish horses through her heart connection with her Spanish Arabian, Bold Brahim (Jesse) - a relationship that eventually sent her to Spain to explore the heritage of his grand sire, Sidi Brahim. And, that special Spanish journey later landed her in dressage training with Olympian Rafael Soto at the Real Escuela Adaluza del Arte Ecuestre in Jerez, Spain.

Horses and designing for the people who love and admire them - dreams do come true!


Diane Barber is dedicated to designing with integrity and surpassing client expectations. She combines a unique sense of style with a 20-year design business, a lifelong art and construction background and a cadre of talented industry professionals to create unique, innovative, functional and beautiful design concepts and solutions. She is an expert at seamlessly managing all phases of the design process and is highly regarded for her attention to detail, vast construction knowledge and excellent interface capabilities with architects, builders and subcontractors.

Diane is a member of the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) and an Interior Design major and summa cum laude graduate of the prestigious design institute, FIDM, Los Angeles. Her formal education is complemented by an extensive art background and an upbringing in her family’s Pennsylvania construction business. The Wallstreet Journal and New York Times have interviewed her about designing for animal lovers, and her philanthropic efforts have included home tours and other fundraising activities to support disadvantaged children and animal rights causes.
