We found Sheila though the National Association of Home Builders as an Aging In Place Specialist. She came to our condo for an initial consultation with my 83 year old mother who also has Multiple Sclerosis. After the initial interview Sheila consulted with a fellow designer who specializes in MS. Sheila was very patient and was a fantastic listener. She took the time to understand all of my mother's issues and challenges. Soon after, Sheila contacted us to recommend that we use her designer counterpart as her counterpart could provide a design more to our needs. Sheila's good faith approach was greatly appreciated. She could easily have taken the project and we would have been none the wiser. We would definitely use Sheila for any other design project.
We have done many projects over the years with Sheila. She is extremely adaptive to your style and has an eye for design that is really hard to find. There is no one better to work with! Her visions are breathtaking and she has the attention to deal to see every project through until the end. One in a million.
We have never met, but my parents are the owners of the Red Bank Riverview Pied-A-Terre. I wanted to thank you for designing such a beautiful home for my family to enjoy for years to come. Your work is stunning and every time I visit, I love seeing what new treasures you have added to the space. My parents' personalities are reflected in every detail, and it is so fun to stay there. As my dad likes to say, "without Sheila, your mom and I would have ruined the apartment." Having participated in many shopping trips to buy furniture with him over the years, I can confirm that is a virtual certainty.
Thank you again, Sheila. I can't tell you how much I appreciate the work you put in making my parents' vision a reality.
“My husband and I hired Sheila Rich to help us update 52-year-old furniture with new upholstery and to refresh the living space where the furniture sat. We planned to repaint but we were not doing any kind of construction.
From the very beginning of the project we found Sheila to be a good listener and an excellent communicator. Her suggestions for fabric, carpeting, color and furniture rearrangement spoke to our own style and helped us create a place of warmth, welcome and comfort. Sheila was very accommodating with scheduling appointments, very clear in discussing costs, and very patient addressing our questions and concerns. She worked with us around a somewhat crazy time frame and made everything come together in perfect order and perfect time, resulting in a beautiful living space that integrates traditional style with modern flair. We are delighted with the new look in our home and we recommend Sheila highly for her vision, her expertise and her lovely personality.”

“I had a wonderful experience working with Sheila Rich Interiors. I felt that Sheila, from the very beginning, really understood where I wanted to go with this renovation. She was very professional, Listened carefully to my vision, and returned phone calls and texts promptly.
She re-did a few pieces that I was planning on replacing and they looked beautiful.
The best part of the project was that she was always fun to be with! Sheila is so positive and upbeat - you come across a problem and she finds a solution. I hired a designer and finished the project with a lifelong friend.”
It has been my pleasure to have known Sheila Rich for a number of years and to have worked closely with her on many occasions. She has been more than helpful in advising us in our decorating needs; both in selecting floors and materials. She has proven herself flexible, talented and consistently responsive to our priorities. I would, without hesitation, highly recommend her to anyone in search of her services.
I am a general contractor and have worked with Sheila Rich for several years on numerous projects. She has always been a first-rate colleague and collaborator. Sheila adapts to her clients tastes while infusing her own distinct style into every project, big or small. Communication with her is quick and easy, which helps keep projects running smoothly. I think Sheila's design sense and level of finish is impeccable as do her many satisfied clients. I am proud of the results we have achieved together and look forward to the challenges ahead.

We have had the pleasure of working with Sheila on a few projects and it is always a pleasure to work with someone who is so knowledgeable about their craft and truly appreciates each of her clients and their specific needs. She is a joy to work with and always brings her charm and charisma into each of her projects. She always loves going with high-quality products and appreciates the fine details which make all of the difference.
Sheila Rich has designed two chiropractic offices for me and my home. She has an incredible eye, keeps the job original and classy. She understands your family or business's "personality" to make the project feel like "yours". She works fast and efficient. I found her decisiveness and certainty to be most helpful during projects with endless options. I give my full and complete recommendation.
Having watched Sheila work her magic for my parents several times (you can see some of the results on her site), I jumped at the chance to have her assist with an addition/redesign. Although we didn't have a huge budget, she went above and beyond in helping us maximize our dollars while missing nothing in the style department. Couldn't recommend her highly enough.
It is such pleasure working with Sheila! She has been purchasing flooring from my company for many years. We have a great professional and friendly relationship. She makes the most beautiful, conscientious selections always with the client in mind. It is such a treat to see the end results of her hard work.
Sheila designed my gutted apartment on the New Jersey shore. She was a delight to work with, truly professional and designed with my personality in mind. She needed to include large works of art and collections and found unique solutions to showcase everything while keeping the ocean view as a main focus. Sheila was able to meet deadlines and budgets and never promised anything she couldn't deliver.
She can design for all: traditional, modern, contemporary or anything you like without compromising design. This is due to her experience and knowledge in the field. I would certainly give her the highest rating.
Sheila has a rare and enviable ability to design and create space that has beauty, meaning, and function. Her taste is exquisite and her style is polished and sophisticated.
Besides being a joy to work with, Sheila is professional, reliable and totally accountable.
Sheila's commitment to her clients is matched only by her passion for design.
I have worked with Sheila Rich Interiors on many projects, for personal projects and most recently for our business.
She has created an office for us that is the envy of all our peers. Sheila was able to meet all our deadlines within our budget under very unusal circimstances. Sheila has made a difference in the way we work and how proud we are of where we work!
Sheila Rich redecorated my apartment. The apartment was painted,the furniture reupholstered,new carpeting installed, blinds and wallpaper also added. Everything came in on time and Sheila often stopped by to see how things were. She even hung my pictures up for me. I am very happy with the way my apartment looks and I would not hesitate to recommend Sheila Rich Interiors to my friends.
I would definitely recommend Sheila Rich as an interior decorator. She has excellent taste and really steered us in the right direction when it came to decorating our first home. She was mindful of our budget and was able to deliver high quality furnishings at a reasonable cost. In particular, the furniture and fabrics she chose for our den have held up incredibly well and are still in style 15 years later!
Sheila is a true professional. She is very mindful of the homeowner's tastes, likes and dislikes. Sheila is very respectful of the budget as well. When she helped me design the interior of my home she actually gave me ideas that saved me money. She was not trying to up-sell you on furnishings that were not necessary just to make a commission. Her ideas were innovative, timeless and beautiful. When my husband and I disagreed she was a "wonderful" mediator and listened to both points of view. She then directed us to make wise decisions in color, furnishings, and accessories. Working with Sheila was "FUN" and in the end I have a beautiful home. Thanks Sheila Rich.
Focused, intuitive, highly motivated, great coordinating of style and design, this is Sheila. My wife and I worked with her company and were extremely pleased how easily she made the decision process. All stress eliminated. The final results were outstanding!

Ms. Rich was instrumental in the complete renovation on my beach condo. Not only did she help me choose fabrics and furniture, etc she completely had by bathrooms gutted and restyled them to my liking. Sheila also had some very good ideas when it came to utilizing, what was once wasted space, into a functional areas.
She hired a general contractor after getting bids for the job and she oversaw all phases of his work. She was mindful of my preferences and my budget. My condo has appeared twice in a New Jersey decorating magazines.
Thank you so much for all of the work you did in making our home as enjoyable as it is. Each day as we descend the stairs, we smile as we look at the changes you made to our living and dining rooms. Then there is the kitchen. FABULOUS!!! We never thought our kitchen could look this good.

Sheila is truly a master of the renovation/design world. Her experience and creativity quickly led to envision flow, openness and light; which, in turn led to a redesigned and combined kitchen/family room, updated dining room, living room, hallway, and two (of four) bedrooms. Sheila guided us through the challenging construction process from selecting our contractor, building trust based on mutual cost/quality expectations, and the actual construction in our home.
Sheila was a skillful and effective advocate remaining available every step of the way. She always returned our calls and emails; even holidays and weekends. She is organized and detail oriented. We may have forgotten something, but she never did. Throughout our project, Sheila operated within our budget without sacrificing style and taste. Her selection of colors and furnishings were suggestions, never dictates.
Sheila’s positive attitude and enthusiasm combined with her formidable creative design and decorating skills made her the most valuable player on our team.

I have known Sheila Rich, both on a professional and personal level for several years. As a professional designer she ran a project for my husband and I that was both challenging and frustrating. Throughout the process she showed extreme competence and instilled in us the sense that she would be there each step of the way to insure a positive result. This ultimately turned out to be the case and we ended up with a beautiful renovation. I have referred her to several friends who have been thrilled with her running of their projects.
Personally I have found her qualities of perseverance, positive attitude, competence and honesty to make her the kind of friend I can rely on and trust.
