Client Testimonials

Rosemarie from RCD Design, I wish to thank you for all your hard work with the interior design for my new home. When we came close to the time to get the keys for the house, I felt very anxious at the thought of sourcing curtains for all the windows, where to start looking for fabric, measuring and finding a curtain maker! Which shop would cater to my taste in furniture and finally, the budget? As soon as Rosemarie came on board however, she made me feel at ease. She was honest, helpful and extremely professional. She really listened and so understood what I was looking for in my new home. She provided a complete service; from measuring every inch of my house and providing drawings and interior schemes for all the rooms, to coming out with me to the shops and choosing specific fabrics, wallpapers, paints and furniture pieces. She even designed several bespoke pieces of furniture and sourced the joiner. She made my move to my new home possible just before lockdown happened and for that I thank her very much.

I was struggling to come up with a plan to reinstate my apartment following a fire, I asked Rosemarie to come up with a design plan. From the moment I saw Rosemarie’s design ideas I realised she had fully grasped my brief and the unique challenges of the dated apartment layout. I could not have been happier with her design solutions and with full faith in Rosemarie I got my contractors to move swiftly on the reinstatement. I was even more delighted when we finally finished the project and the ideas had come to fruition. My once dated, tired apartment is now breathing new life and compares favourably with any modern luxury apartment. Rosemarie in my opinion is not only a great interior designer, she is most understanding and supportive throughout the process, I could not recommend Rosemarie highly enough. Niall SmithRead More

Rosemarie was so helpful with my newly purchased apartment. She gave me excellent tips in modernising and enhancing the whole space, making it so much brighter, spacious and much more comfortable. > From choosing the perfect paint colours and tones to the type and shape of mirrors, rugs, lamps and soft furnishings in all my rooms - hall, kitchen, bathroom, bedroom and sitting room. > > I was absolutely delighted with Rosemarie. She was so patient and very understanding and had the ability to allow me express my desires and needs of what would make me happy to live in my new home. > I highly commend her on all her recommendations, her professionalism and her excellent taste. Wonderful!Read More

I'm delighted with the way my home has turned out. Taking my initial ideas and efforts on-board, Rosemarie transformed them into fully-formed, contemporary, stylish design. She did this while maintaining, building the sense of individuality I wanted my home to express. I do not hesitate in recommending RCD to friends and family.Read More

It was wonderful to work with Rosemarie. We were taking over a new penthouse, and we did not have a sense for how to best set up the space with a Scandinavian design. She was very consultative and asked us for the styles that we liked and aligned with what we wanted to go with. Throughout the process Rosemarie gave us inspiration and ideas and brought it all together with mood boards, space plans, and shopping lists. She also liaised with various trades people who have been great to personalize the space. Thanks so much for all the support!Read More

I found Rosemarie to be professional and extremely detailed the project was finished to an impeccable standard. Would have no hesitation in recommending Rosemarie to clients.Read More

When I bought the apartment last year, the original interior looked very bland and aged. I came into contact with Rosemarie, provided my budget limitations and requirements, and she went onto create an amazing design. The design for the kitchen, living room, dining room, hallway, bedroom and office was supported by drawings and photos. As part of the project work, she contacted all vendors to do the work and worked around my own schedule to complete it. The results are amazing! From a bland and aged interior, it now looks like an elegant and luxurious apartment that simultaneously has a very homely feel to it. The design of the hallway is unlike I have seen before and the living room is exactly how I hoped it would be. And all was withing budget. Rosemarie, thank you so much for your amazing work!Read More

I enlisted Rosemarie's services to revamp a number of rooms in our home. She was incredibly generous with her time, worked hard to ensure that she understood our brief, which resulted in great designs that not only met our budget requirements but also the needs of a young family. She went out of her way and was a pleasure to deal with. Overall, I would recommend Rosemarie and will enlist her services again for sure!Read More

When I decided to renovate my home, Rosemary was recommended to me by a friend whose home she had renovated. She approached the project with creativity and professionalism. She worked tirelessly bringing all elements of the project together and I was delighted with the final result. Rosemary has enormous enthusiasm and flair and I look forward to working with her again in the future.Read More
