“If you are looking for a designer who listens, is flexible, can blend a variety of styles tastefully, gives cost options (conscious of budgets) and delivers her creative insights with reasonable fees, then look no further and consider Ryley Bickerdike.
We were downsizing retirees who wanted to blend modern minimalism with our eclectic limited treasures and art that included antiques to classic contemporary. She was able to guide us gently offering resources and options. Her referral for a custom table by Lupine Designs was a perfect.
Ryley’s humble and supportive approach leaves one with feeling empowered. She honours the past while gently encouraging her clients to stretch and test new avenues.
With gratitude, “
“I signed a lease on an apartment I wasn't thrilled about, but in this rental market you take what you can get! I wanted to put some effort and cash into making it a place that I loved, and I'm so so happy that Ryley took me as a client. She made me concept boards based on my style, and helped me with my vision of how I wanted my place to feel and look. She sourced a bunch of new things for me, all of them beautiful and unique. Big and small furniture pieces, rugs, art, accessories, and thoughtful details to tie it all together. Everything so tasteful and classic! She even re-purposed some of my old furniture and gave it new life! I LOVE being at home, and hosting people there. It feels inviting, warm, and exactly like the home I wanted. Ryley really listens, is receptive to my ideas (and makes them better!) and is a dream to work with. I can't recommend her enough!”
