Philosophy

Rhonda Grubbs' goal is to bring balance, texture, color and warmth to all her projects.  She describes her approach to design as a modern, but not minimal aesthetic.   When she opened an antique and decorative arts store in the Uptown area of Dallas, her focus was on antiques and vintage furniture.  This experience led to doing complete interiors for customers establishing her reputation and clientele.  With many clients building or remodeling, she began to provide construction consultation services working closely with architects and contractors.  She finds that a collaborative approach during the construction process provides the best home possible.

Her love of style is paramount in a project always remembering that a classic never goes out of style.   She seeks to use color effortlessly whether it be tonal neutrals or bold combinations.  She loves to quote Elsie de Wolfe in her famous decorating book "The House in Good Taste" when she says, "What a joyous thing is color."   The outdoors is always a source of inspiration for color and texture and another of her great loves.   Rhonda also finds inspiration in works by Designers of the past and the present including Dorothy Draper, David Hicks, Barbara Barry and Thomas O'Brien.

The name of her company, "Three Graces Interiors" comes from classical mythology where the gracious women represented "Beauty,""Mirth," and "Good Cheer".   This approach to interiors is the goal when she is working in a client's home: creating beautiful spaces where people can find comfort and joy.   Her company motto is "The real measure of a home is how it restores you at the end of the day."
