Part III | By Terra McNutt

Owning RI Studio has been one of the greatest pleasures of my life, and we’re just getting started.

One of the most exciting aspects is seeing my style take hold in the Dallas design community. RI Studio designs are elevated, original and exclusive, and our clients aren’t the only ones who are noticing. We were honored to win a first and second place award in the ASID 2019 Legacy of Design competition, and I’m excited to submit more of our elevated designs in 2020 and beyond. It has been so validating to have the design industry recognize the impact of our firm’s work.

As I look to the future, I have big plans for the growth of RI Studio. We have been blessed with continued growth, both from new clients looking for full home renovations and previous clients looking for us to design their second or vacation homes. We’re also looking to expand our work with architects and custom home builders. I love working with these skilled professionals to create a holistic design — one that incorporates creative and exclusive design elements before construction even begins.

We’re always looking to improve how we service our clients at RI Studio. Soon we will be launching a new program exclusively for previous and existing clients to continue providing them white-glove services after their interior design projects and home renovations are complete.

In the meantime, I’m thrilled to announce a new blog series by RI Studio called “A Rendered Interior” I get so many questions from clients and friends about interior design, and I want to give back to my community by sharing my expertise. Do you have a question for me about interior design or the construction process? Are you looking for design advice, decorating tips, or an insider’s perspective on new trends? Submit your questions to and I will answer them in future “A Rendered Interior” columns.

One reason I’m excited about this new series is because it touches on the heart of interior design: connection and community. I’m so grateful to work with dedicated builders, talented architects, and especially my thoughtful clients. Thank you for being part of my community; I can’t wait to serve you.
