Contemporary Design For Everyday Living
My name is Rnea (pronounced Renee) Imbeault, and I am an interior designer in the Ottawa region. I provide many design services including home staging, color consultation, re-design and home decoration. My personal approach to design includes building a positive working relationship with my clients, and infusing each clients personality into their living space.
After pursuing a College Diploma in Social Work, and then a University Degree in Psychology I immediately started working in the social services field. Interior Design had always been a passion of mine ever since I was a little girl re-arranging every room in my family home. As a teenager I was picking paint colors for the exterior of my neighbors home, and although it was probably a little premature, it was a hobby I loved and felt confident doing. My taste has evolved over the years, as well as my style. I am always evolving and expanding my design knowledge and experience by attending design workshops and annual Interior Design Show's (IDS). Before starting my business "RAI Design", I decided to pursue the diploma Interior Redesign program with Quality Of Course in 2009.
If you are having trouble selecting colours, arranging furniture, buying furniture, or shopping for the perfect accessory, hiring an interior designer can bring experience along with fresh ideas to every project. After asking a series of questions and getting to know each clients personality and style preferences, the design process begins and each job is tailored to each clients needs.
RAI Design provides you with a professional and experienced eye to help you select the perfect colours. Colour selections are based on a series of questions that help determine your individual style.
It's no secret that staged homes sell quicker and generally for more money then empty or un-staged homes. Staging helps draw the eyes to a rooms special features, such as, the size of the room, tall ceilings, a fireplace, or french doors. RAI Design can provide design consultation and, if needed, find furniture and other decor to help sell your home fast and for a higher amount
Furniture & Accessory Selection
Selecting the perfect furniture for each space can be time consuming and overwhelming. Let an experienced RAI Design shopper find what you're looking for.
After a design consultation and getting to know your design needs the design project can begin. All a room may need is a small re-design or facelift, and by reusing existing furniture and changing the colour palette you may have a solution. Regardless of the size of job, RAI Design will strive to complete the project on- time and on-budget.

Natasha Hatt, Ottawa ON
"Rnea is a gifted designer who is completely open minded and does everything possible to show her client’s personality and interests through paints, furniture, artwork and a myriad of personal touches. My condo was blank slate, and Rnea started by picking colours that flowed beautifully from room to room, and with a feature wall that sets off a striking contrast with the main colours in the room. The couch in the condo presented a challenge – as it had to have a certain scale to fit the relatively large room, but could not block the view, which was a key selling feature of the condo. Rnea worked tirelessly to find the perfect fit – she visited numerous stores in Ottawa and Toronto – with a very specific design in mind to fit her overall vision for the space. The couch and paint are just two examples of Rnea’s incredible work ethic and commitment to her artistic vision – I was very lucky to have her as a designer, and I am absolutely thrilled with my home!"
