The ability to create a special bond with your client is particularly important when you’re designing luxury living space. Ryan White has built an excellent reputation by supporting, communicating, and keeping his clients’ best interest in his heart through every step of the design process.
Q: How would you describe your design style, and how does it complement Los Angeles living?
RW: At Ryan White Designs our style is all about living in a comfortable way with a classic sophistication. Designing for clients who thrive on the California dream of incorporating natural elements and the indoor/outdoor living capability. No matter if it’s a very modern home or a 1920s Mediterranean masterpiece we make sure every client still feels like their home is warm and inviting.
Q: Who is your typical client, and how do you continue to serve and fulfill their needs?
RW: Our typical client is really all over the board. We work with young families who are building their first dream home, couples who thrive on entertaining, Hollywood producers, actors and directors. It really is all about finding that special connection with your client and designer. We continue to fulfill our clients’ needs by constantly keeping them up-to-date on where we are in the design process as well as educating them and being their number one support system. We find many of our clients to have a feeling of being overwhelmed before they retain our services. Our job is to not only design beautiful spaces but to allow our clients to sleep better at night knowing we are on their side and always have their best interest at heart. We typically take on the role of project management. This allows us to assemble the best possible team from contractors, architects and landscape designers.
Q: Do you have a favorite room or project you have recently completed?
RW: We are constantly working on new and exciting projects at RWD. Right now, we are in the process of a few ground up builds which is always very exciting. We also have a few projects out of state, one being in Colorado. This is near and dear to my heart as I grew up in Denver. Another exciting venture is discussions with a few different development partners to bring RWD into the hotel space. It’s been a long-time dream of mine to be able to create our signature RWD style for a broader audience. We look forward to seeing this develop over time.
Q: What design trends are you most excited about in 2018?
RW: I feel that within the design community we are all moving towards a more eco-friendly and minimalistic approach. That said, I think finding the balance between spaces that are modern yet still have a very friendly, warm and inviting design sense to them is what I would be most excited to see for 2018.
