Barbie Palomino

Boss Lady & Co-Founder

Barbie Palomino hails from the sunshine state where she grew up amongst her Grandmother’s pastel, plastic-covered furniture. These surroundings were the inception for her yearning to create functional, efficient spaces that still possess personality and ingenuity. She studied business at the University of Florida before leaping to the opposite coast for a stint at FIDM. Armed with a pair of degrees, she cut her teeth early and often with a few different reputable interior design firms and wore nearly as many different professional hats as the number of Pomeranians she has owned. Her tenacity and painstaking attention to detail only elevates her finely tuned artistic eye. Some may shy away from being called a taskmaster, but not this Boss Lady - she revels in it.

Annie May

Creative Director & Co-Founder

A couple decades ago in Iowa, a diminutive Annie May had starry-eyed dreams of designing sets in the big city. Annie’s idea of “playing” back then was making floor plans out of hay in open fields, foreshadowing what lied ahead. Her love of the arts and writing propelled her far beyond the gates of Iowa State University and landed her a handful of positions in Los Angeles that were pivotal in creating a sturdy foundation for her design prowess. The more right brained (and some would say “the sweet one”) of the Co-Founders, Annie’s insatiable desire for international travel has served as her primary inspirational source. It has also provided countless connections with artisans local and abroad whose work is often included in BAM’s innovative aesthetic.

As fate would have it, the stars aligned for these two design dynamos to unite under the common goal of working closely with every client’s blank canvas to tell a compelling, unique story with each project… or maybe it’s just because they share the same birthday and a penchant for fine dining. Whatever brought these two together, there is no debating that BAM will stop at nothing to meticulously craft projects that are artfully curated AND sophisticatedly functional.
