Two years ago, we asked Sheila to advise us in connection with our planned home redecoration. Working with her became a distinct pleasure; she was responsive to our needs, considerate of our pocketbook, and she provided us with remarkably tasteful design suggestions. She has warmed our living space and continues to be a thoughtful adviser.

This is the third home that Sheila Rich has helped me decorate. She is always professional and listens to what my needs and budget are. She transformed a dated home that we purchased into a fresh and inviting environment. Sheila is innovative and used my already owned items effectively. My home is warm and welcoming and accurately reflects my husband and me. Everyone who walks in comments on how lovely it is. I would recommend Sheila to anyone. She is the best!!
We are so happy with the renovation that Sheila did in our master bathroom. She managed the project in a very professional way. Our bathroom is beautiful as well as efficient and practical. I recommend Sheila Rich to anyone who considering this project in their home.
“We can’t say enough wonderful things about Sheila. She is a consummate professional, who is courteous and extremely helpful. We hired Sheila to help us design and furnish our new home. From the start, Sheila came up with a plan to give each room its own personality, while making sure that the rooms complemented one another to contribute to a unified theme. She was so easy to work with and helped us through the process by accompanying us to stores to meet our decorating needs and express our own personal tastes. We love the way our home looks and look forward to working with Sheila on future projects in our house in the years to come.”
“We had the opportunity to work with Sheila Rich Interiors this year on a major renovation project. Basically, our condo was completely gutted down to the studs and sub floor -- new wiring, plumbing, flooring, fixtures, cabinets, appliances, etc. During this entire time, we lived in another state and could only visit the site on occasion so we really did have to rely on Sheila throughout.
Now that the renovation is finished, we could not be more pleased with the result -- it is simply stunning! Sheila was able to take our goals, develop an overall vision for the project, and then turn that vision into reality. At every step, she helped us with decisions that had to be made -- major and minor alike -- and did so in a way that kept us within our overall budget. In fact, we even had some funds remaining that allowed us to splurge in a few areas. A final note. As I mentioned earlier, we lived in another state so taking on a project of this magnitude could have easily overwhelmed us. But, the communication could not have been better. We were in constant communication with each other and Sheila always kept us apprised of where things stood or were headed. I felt like we were always on the same page and often Sheila had addressed issues before I even raised the question. My wife and I have said on more than one occasion how fortunate we were to have selected Sheila to oversee the renovation of our home.”
“I have been delighted to work with Sheila photographing her beautiful interiors. She is a talented designer who brings original style to each project - whether a family home or sophisticated space. In her designs she clearly considers every detail, both aesthetic and functional. Sheila approaches her work with professionalism. She is accessible, prompt, friendly and a great collaborator. A perfect colleague and her clients adore her! ”
“Sheila was recommended to me by one of my very close friends. I was told by my friend that by hiring Sheila...not only is my house going to be beautiful in the end, but that I was also going to make a lifelong friend in Sheila. My friend was right! Sheila has elegant, classic and timeless taste and molded her ideas into mine. She helped me with basically everything that was involved in my kitchen and downstairs renovation and more importantly helped make my house a home!”
Sheila joined with the Make a Wish Foundation to create our son Angelo's dream train room. My husband and I decided that we would use the unfinished room above our garage to fulfill this dream. Every effort was made to make sure the layout was flawless. We were so impressed with the amount of compassion and concern for our son's happiness. It was so special to have people so in touch with Angelo's emotions and needs.
Sheila was consistently in contact to discuss each stage. The quality of work and value placed on the creation of Angelo's room was professional and above any standard. It was pure excellence!!! We cannot thank Sheila enough for the room that our son longs to be in and how it is his favorite place to be. I watch him with such joy running from one side of the room to the next as he plays. It’s true happiness to see his dream come true!!!!
I recently attended a talk given by Sheila on Aging in Place. After explaining the principles of Universal Design, she walked the audience through “before” and “after” photos taken from her portfolio. Sheila’s work is amazing! Her ideas are creative, smart, functional, and beautiful. I enjoyed learning about the specific challenges faced with each living situation and how she worked with the client to address each issue.
Like her interior designs, the presentation was polished and professional. Thank you, Sheila.
Sheila, thanks to you our beach condominium looks amazing! The paint selection that you recommended looks so fresh and warm...we couldn't be happier with the color! My favorite improvement was adding a much needed second bathroom allowing us to create a master en suite. It has been a pleasure working with you. You always promptly returned my phone calls and emails, worked within our budget and offered current and upcoming decorating tips. I will definitely recommend you to anyone looking for a designer. Thank you for helping us transform our space into a beautiful condominium home!
Sheila is a great designer. She has impeccable taste. She is very easy to work with. My house came out absolutely beautiful. I had a budget to work with and she was able to work within it. I highly recommend Sheila.
Originally, I hired Sheila Rich to design my home. She created a space that my wife and I love. We could have never created our home this way without her. The amazing part was that Sheila was able to capture "the feel" that we wanted. It was important that we had a home that was elegant but comfortable enough to live in. She hit it out of the park! We continue to have Sheila design other rooms in our house.
I was so pleased with Sheila's vision and work that I hired her to redesign my office space. I had been renting for 7 years and it was time for an update. However, the fact that the space is a rental and I do not know when I may be moving created a budget that Sheila was able to work within.
Our office got a much needed facelift and the response from my patients and staff was nothing short of phenomenal. She helped create an office that we love coming to. Her capacity to see the space as it will be makes her an extraordinary visionary! I wholeheartedly recommend Sheila Rich for your next home or office project!

I have worked with Sheila for many years, selling tile and stone to her on numerous occasions. She is progressive in her thinking, and tailors each selection beautifully to her client's wishes, using many of the "fresher" ideas in my store to set her designs apart from the ordinary. Sheila considers the entire project, and this shows in her frequent inclusion in Design NJ magazine.
I have worked with Sheila for several projects over the past 30 years. She has always done an excellent job, listening to what my needs and preferences were, and producing a wonderful room at the end. She is always respectful of my budget, and incorporates my older furniture and accessories, updating the look in my home. My family room was not an inviting place to sit, until Sheila changed the room color, the window treatment, and the lighting. Now it is our favorite room.
Sheila Rich designed my kitchen and stayed on top of it every day. It seemed like she could read my mind and knew what I liked and didn't like. She took me on trips to let me see what was out there and helped me with the choices once we had narrowed them down. She stayed on top of the kitchen people and made sure they stayed on target with the installations. I couldn't have asked for a better designer and person to work with.
Sheila Rich is one of the most interesting, energetic, creative people I have ever met. We recently moved from a very small condo into a roomy townhouse. Sheila's concept of space and proportion are amazing. She has (and still is) guiding us through what to keep, what to toss, what to purchase AND where to put it to get the look that we want for our new home. Her ideas are brilliant while keeping in mind her client's taste and pocketbook.
We have had the pleasure of working with Sheila on several jobs, and each one has produced fantastic results. She has a wonderful eye for design and keeps the clients' individuality as a top priority. We have even won several awards together!

I am an architect specializing in residential additions and alterations. I have had the pleasure of collaborating with Sheila on a number of residential projects over the past 10 years. In each and every case, I have been impressed with Sheila's unique ability to listen to her clients and create beautiful interior spaces for them. She couples her great eye for design with strong technical skills. I consider myself a better architect as a direct result of working with Sheila Rich!

We hired Sheila Rich Interiors, LLC immediately upon moving into our new house. While the house had a great shell, it was clear from jump that we needed to make many decisions with regard to changing out wall coverings, window treatments, flooring, furniture and more. Sheila worked closely with us to understand our style and was able to develop a number of creative options for us to consider and iterate upon. Moreover, Sheila developed a plan to turn the house we purchased into one that quickly became our dream home, complete with wall-to-wall changes that fit our style and matched our budget. Sheila is an absolute professional, she is veryu godd at waht she does and is incredibly easy to work with, to boot. We would highly recommend her to anyone considering using her services.
Description: Partial Kitchen Renovation: Tiling for walls and back splash (she created the design and lay out), window treatments, kitchen chair seat covers, bar stools and seat covers, knobs for cabinets, various accessories, lighting fixtures over the kitchen table and island (my favorite, as they are so unique!)
Sheila Rich transformed our kitchen from an ordinary looking, unfinished kitchen to a beautiful, contemporary kitchen with a very polished look. We thoroughly enjoyed working with Sheila as she is professional, extremely knowledgeable, very reliable and just plain nice! She worked within our budget to get the look we wanted and we are so pleased with the final product.
We can't wait to start the next room!
Sheila Rich helped us design and decorate our home 25 years ago. Over the last several years, she has helped us redecorate as our needs required, and, most recently, re-design our kitchen and bathrooms. In every instance, her work has been terrific. She understands her clients needs, responds to their requests, and operates on the most professional level. The information I will provide below covers only the most recent activity.
Shelia updated our family room, which she originally designed in 1981 after a fire. Once again, we were delighted with the results. The design incorporated the changes in media technology that has taken place since the original design and reflected the technological needs of our family.
In addition, Sheila updated the room's decor through new fabrics on our sofas and chairs. The room reflects the personalities of our family.

Sheila not only has amazing vision and is an amazing decorator but she is a wonderful person too! She carries the perfect balance of encouragement, respect, vision and patience to meet you where you are at but also propel you forward. I have already recommended Sheila to family and friends!
