Dean Gerbasi

A native of Ashland, Ohio, I’ve had a passion for interior design since I was young. Following my heart, I earned a degree in interior design from The Art Institute of Pittsburgh in 1988. I’ve been an interior designer for 25 years – the last 18 at Pine Tree Barn.

What I like about Interior Design is opening up people’s eyes to the wonderful opportunities that exist to create emotion, inspiration and serenity in their interiors.

When working with a client I feel I am particularly good at listening and making the process enjoyable and fun! For me, listening is the most important aspect of the design process. Listening deeply and carefully allows me to help people create spaces that perfectly reflect who they are.

I feel my strengths and talents include window treatments, designing architectural features, and specifying finishes for new construction projects. But I feel my greatest strength is my ability to help people see the larger picture – whether working on a single piece, or a whole room.

On a personal note: When I’m not working I enjoy stalking Frank Lloyd Wright architecture and reading books on history.
