Kimberlie Rice and R. Designs Timeless Design with a Personal Touch

By  0 Comments

Kimberlie Rice, at R. Designs, delivered the charm of a modern Colorado mountain retreat to a home in south Overland Park, Kansas. Partnering with Jackie and Steve Faust on their newly built home, Kimberlie brought her extensive design expertise and created the home of their dreams.

“Kim was integral in helping us make the myriad decisions that come with building a custom home. Before building our home, my husband and I purchased a piece of artwork that displayed the color scheme that we wanted for the home,” shared Jackie. “Kim was able to assist us with our selections of paint and stain colors, tile, stone, countertops and furniture to bring together a wonderful blend of colors and textures that flow beautifully throughout the house.”

“The clients actually brought me into the design process. We obtained a copy of the builder’s schedule and worked our way through the selections as they were requested. We took it step by step,” noted Kimberlie. “The majority of interior design items such as rugs, artwork, furniture, flooring and paint are chosen together to achieve a cohesive look.”

Kimberlie’s guiding force for her clients is keenly listening to them to interpret their vision. The final product, which can range from a room to an entire house, is a true reflection of the homeowner’s life. She’ll call upon her deep skillset featuring interior design, color consultation and personal shopping to create an inviting and cozy decor that’s a delight for the client. When you’re turning your house into your dream home, turn to R. Designs.

“An established interior designer not only has the knowledge and experience to create a beautiful palette of colors and textures, they also have extended access to sources for furniture and accessories that can really complete the look of a home,” added Jackie.

Design Preview
This access is available at Kimberlie’s workspace, Studio One Sixty in Overland Park, Kansas, and allows clients to better understand her designs before the effort is started. Studio One Sixty is an interior design studio, serving as a collaborative, one-stop-shop to help clients in selecting custom quality products for their home or office.

“Studio One Sixty offer clients exclusive looks at an extensive amount of custom options for everything from carpets to love seats,” shared Kimberlie. “Studio One Sixty simplifies the design process by eliminating the need to shop at various locations. We carry samples, catalogs and accessories from many different vendors to assist us in creating a custom design look especially for you.”

Having a proven set of vendors available to her clients is another service Kimberlie offers. “I have a list of trusted vendors and artisans I work with that I can refer to my customers for painting, carpeting, wallpaper and more, and you can use your own, too,” noted Kimberlie. “But the contract for work is between my client and the vendor. Interior designers can upcharge for those services, which adds significantly to the bottom line. This means savings for my clients.”

Experience and Recognition
Not only does Kimberlie focus on interior design projects, she’ll also take on kitchen, bathroom and basement remodels. As she manages the process for you, she works with her trusted and proven crew. In addition to homes, R. Designs can tackle commercial projects, ranging from a large office space to an entire building.

Kimberlie’s commitment to her profession is recognized by several leading industry organizations. For the second year, she’s been selected as a Leading Designer by Lux Magazine, a United Kingdom luxury design magazine recognizing designers across the world. For the last four years, she’s achieved the Best of Houzz-Client Satisfaction award and is noted as a Houzz influencer. “My recognitions are especially important to me because they signify I that I am someone worth trusting as a designer,” detailed Kimberlie.
