As an interior designer and lifestyle design expert for over 35 years,    I have had the privilege of contributing to both the beauty of environments and the quality of our clients’ lives all over the country. What has always mattered most to me is that I have been able to make a real difference by simply listening and providing what really matters most to them.

What Our Clients Are Saying About Us

Rita helped us see possibilities we’d never imagined when renovating our home. From taking out walls to lighting and selections, she and her team helped us create a home we love.

S.M., Client

Rita and Design Services has consistently provided high quality advice and design. She has always had a eye for the possibility in a space and the ability to make the possibility a reality. She continues to educate herself on current design trends. Aging in place and the art of downsizing are her passions. I trust Rita and her company with all my design needs.

K.S., Client

We are both so excited to see the room finally come to life.  It is the first time we have walked in the house and felt like we had a finished look right from the front door.  I was so impressed with how easily you were able to use things we had to create such a cohesive look.

R.R., Client

We have worked with Rita several times when we were in transition from a smaller home to a larger home and then from a home for two adults and one child to a second child… and then a third. Each time, Rita has provided caring, sensitive insight that helped us successfully transition. Rita understands people— and is able to translate that understanding into designs that work.

R.W., Client

She has had years of experience with design in many settings but one of her most endearing traits is how she is really able to know her clients. She has so much wisdom and perspective to share. Rita has just the right mix of inspiration and encouragement.

K.N., Client

I believe that Rita Wilkins and her company Design Services, Ltd is one of the best in our area. I would highly recommend her. She is always professional, and very easy to work with.

P.R., Client

Rita literally helped me with a kitchen design long distance from PHL to ATL! I had to choose lighting, paint etc and all she had to go with was photos. The project turned out to be absolutely beautiful. She is creative, passionate and extremely talented! You will not find anyone better.

A.M., Client

My rooms look absolutely beautiful! I’ve learned a very good lesson.. it’s worth investing in good quality both in terms of advice and products.

Our Interior Design Services and Process

It takes a lot more than talent to create innovative, well-designed interiors. It requires unconditional commitment to good business practices, efficient project management, and a dedicated team to exceed our clients’ expectations from start to finish on every project.

Great design starts with you. Before we design, we spend time with you to fully understand your Wants, Needs, and “Wish-List”, in other words, what matters most to you? Each client’s goals, aspirations and budgets are uniquely different. We work with you and for you to clearly articulate those goals, aspirations, and budgets so that we can design the spaces that you dream of but may not know how to accomplish on your own.

We are deeply committed to improving the lives of our clients and their businesses through interior design. Our experienced team has a thorough knowledge and understanding of the design and construction process, project management, coordinating/scheduling of the many subcontractors. We lead our clients through the process and the many complex decisions with the intention of removing stress, saving time, and money for our clients. We hope that we have an opportunity to work with you on your next project.

We listen to our clients.
We provide innovative design solutions.
We deliver return on your investment.
