Rich Interiors started with a determined woman, some curtains and a vision. Trained professionally as a seamstress, Jackie Richardson sewed tirelessly to exceed her clients’ expectations. But after a few projects, she noticed something: In addition to sewing, she also had a crazy talent for interior design – a special knack for arranging spaces that invite guests in and make them feel at home. She couldn’t ignore it any longer. Rich Interiors just had to be born.
Years later, the Rich Interiors team continues to transform tiny offices into creative havens, or help clients make their new custom-built home feel magazine worthy – if that’s what they want, of course. In Jackie’s world, everybody’s happy. It’s your vision, and that’s what she strives to bring to life.
Today, Jackie prides herself and her team for being trustworthy partners who always put their clients’ vision first. She and her award-winning team have won over an esteemed clientele that ranges from first-time homeowners to multi-billion dollar corporations. Not bad for just a woman, her sewing machine, and a dream.
When Rich Interiors was born, I knew it was the beginning of a special journey. But I didn't know that my new business would also lead to a passionate new way of life. To live richly, all you need is to be you. That's a philosophy I try to bring to every single project, no matter how big or small.
Rich Interiors is a full-service, detail-driven interior design firm dedicated to creative, functional, and beautiful spaces as unique as every client. Jackie takes your vision and makes it a reality with creative solutions, while keeping in mind your needs and budget. After all, we're not the ones who will be living or working in your space. You are. We can help you create an atmosphere that makes your home or business beautifully functional.
