Hi! My name is Rita and I have been practicing Interior Design since 2003. I am one of the lucky people that discovered what I wanted to do at a young age and succeeded in attaining the dream. It literally started with my cousins and I playing Barbie’s. Our parents did not buy us doll houses; we had to make them. I would collect items from around the house and part of the game was setting up our spaces. I loved it! I made club chairs out sea shells and fridges out of ferror roche boxes and had linens for our beds made of crocheted table cloths. My joyful play turned into a passion for design and the start of successful career.
Upon graduating high school I enrolled at the University of Manitoba Architecture program. It was there that I began my love affair with design theory. I believe that design is necessary and should be accessible. Interior design is not about making a space “pretty”; it’s about a transformation of needs and wants into physical manifestation of those programmatic requirements. I completed my under graduated degree in Environmental Design with a specialization in Interior Environments in 2003. Shortly on, I continued my studies with a Masters in Interior Design. I graduated in 2010. It was during my Masters program that I exercised my point of view of Design.
“Design is about taking an idea and exploring its varying potential; it’s about building relationships through communication. As a designer is it our commitment to quality of service that allows us to listen, then articulate and then develop functional and aesthetic spaces for our clients.” (2005)
