Your home determines much of the quality of your life. As your life changes, so do your needs. When your home no longer meets your needs, you may consider what is best for you. My skill is to show you design opportunities you may never have considered. When we meet in the context of your home it sparks new ideas. However, it's not until I sit down to draw that your designs really begin to take form.
If you decide to work with me, we explore, develop and refine your design over three distinct stages.
- 1st stage sketches ensure you are happy.
- 2nd stage drawings satisfy compliance requirements.
- 3rd stage details smooth construction.
I am with you the whole way: to create, coordinate and check, guiding your design from concept to completion.
Incredible sense of space and light
Highly recommend Ruth and Forever Home Design. Ruth has an incredible sense of space and light and her design far exceeded our expectations. She is approachable, respectful of budget and generally a delight. Look forward to working with her on the next reno!
Creative and within budget
Ruth shared her expertise with me in coming up with creative solutions for my new home. I felt that my ideas were listened to and her design responses were creative and within budget. I am happy to recommend Ruth of Forever Home Design.
Her designs are transformational
Ruthie has an amazing eye and wonderful appreciation of space and flow. She produces beautiful designs and is easy to work with. Her designs are transformational and sympathetic to my beautiful old heritage home. Highly recommend her.
Ruth brings to her aesthetics an empathic intelligence & sensitivity matched with meticulous attention to detail.
I found Ruth tremendously helpful when I sought her advice on improving my original duplex concept plans. She is an attentive listener who helped me arrive at a great outcome, by creating a sense of balance and spaciousness in the interiors. Her eye for detail was apparent in clever changes she made to create functional storage spaces out of originally untapped areas. She was inspiring and encouraging at every meeting, wonderfully eloquent at explaining design principles and communicating why she proposed the adjustments that she made. I would highly recommend Ruth, she’s a joy to work with.
Our home has completely transformed!
Ruth’s whole philosophy is designing with no end in mind. Matching timeless design principles with practical living means the spaces she works with have a fabulous look and feel to them. Our home has completely transformed with Ruth’s work. Incredible. Our home is now a place we could live in forever. Can’t thank her enough for this transformation!
