Having been in the design industry for over twenty years, Rita has designed spaces from Maine to Miami and all the way out to Montana. Rita’s design process begins with something that her client likes; whether it be a pillow, a favorite color or piece of art, she finds an item to inspire herself and her clients. Rita blends her traditional style with a funky coastal twist to create the desired aesthetic of her client’s homes. She suggests what she believes works best in her client’s spaces, and takes into consideration that she doesn’t live in their home, they do, and will go above and beyond to make her client’s happy. Rita also loves the relaxed atmosphere of working at the beach!

"I love listening carefully to customers and helping them first articulate and then create room they love," says Eileen, "Nothing makes me happier than to hear someone say, 'I love it! It is exactly what I hoped for!'" Eileen has been designing homes since childhood. As a child, she'd always be redecorating her bedroom and moving the living room furniture around. In her early career, Eileen worked as a photography editor for National Wildlife Magazine and The National Geographic Society. After some time at home to raise her daughter, Eileen followed her passion for furniture and design, working as a design professional for more than 15 years. Now, she is continuing her design career with the team at Oskar Huber.
