Pam Forman is a highly experienced designer and entrepreneur who has been recognized for her collaborative and customized design approach. Founded with the goal of fusing her corporate experience in client service and project management, with her passion for interior design, PBF Homes creates timeless, transitional interiors that are bespoke to each client’s needs.

Pam is responsible for the overall creative direction, strategic vision, and client management across home renovation, interior design and home staging. She was recently recognized as a 2024 Best of Luxury Design “One to Watch" by Modern Luxury Interiors.

In 2020, Pam seamlessly expanded her studio to include a successful luxury home staging business that combines her acute attention to detail and a deep understanding of the luxury marketplace.

Pam believes the secret to a successful project comes down to the partnership she establishes with her clients. “The more we understand our clients’ needs, the more unique and seamless experiences we can deliver. It’s our job to not only build a space around what they want to see, but how they want to feel.”

When she is not in the office with her fluffy sidekick Finn, you’ll find Pam spending time with her husband and two [grown up] girls.
