Client Reviews

Harbor Cove Residence, Newport Beach

House Whisperer

Rod has done three projects for us and we are always delighted with the results. He listens to our concerns and is always spot on in his designs. Importantly, he designs to our budget. We like working with Rod because he takes the time to understand his clients’ lifestyles, tastes, and budget. The first project he did for us was a small job to perk up a rental condo. I can still recall the feeling when I walked in to see the final results. He had transformed the unit with imaginative paint, textures, trims, window coverings, and carpet. Flawless. We were so impressed that we hired him to do a major redesign of our bedrooms, baths, and family room. Once again, he transformed the space with imagination and flair into a comfortable, Moroccan-style, refuge. Amazing! We are now in the process of implementing his latest masterpiece in our living room. He is the House Whisperer. Too bad we don’t have any more rooms left for Rod to work on!

Great eye for color

He is an artist and has a great eye for color schemes, and very professional. He did an excellent job, very happy with the results, and I highly recommend him to all.

Kept his Promises

His professionalism showed through. He did what he said he would do and did it on time.

Talent is extraordinary!

I am beyond grateful for your help. You are always so gracious and thoughtful… and your talent is extraordinary! We so appreciate all that you have done to help us.

Made Magic Happen

He is absolutely amazing. His experience is invaluable not only in redesigning the room but in the vision he has for how to utilize what you already own. He is by far the most understanding designer I have ever met with. He is conscientious, professional, knowledgeable, and understanding of your vision. Most designers impose their vision upon you: he is the exact opposite. He will tell you what will look best, and then he is willing to work your home and make it yours. He has a selection of budgetary plans that allow him to be a consultant on an hourly basis all the way to being a partner in redesigning your home. I would highly recommend him to anyone and would suggest having a consult with him before making a decision to hire someone else, he can make magic happen

Genuinely cares that you achieve a great outcome

Roderick Reed is excellent, very creative, understands and helps you find a great look that suits your lifestyle. He brought our interior up to date and was also able to work with some of what we had. He understands how to work within a budget and genuinely cares that you achieve a great outcome. I highly recommend Reedesign interiors. Great firm!

Attentive, flexible, and communicated well

Our family had an incredible experience with Rod. The project was for design and follow through on our children’s rooms – ages 7 and 13. Rod was attentive, listened well, came with ideas, was flexible, communicated well with the children and with us, provided wonderful visualizations for concepts, and was reasonably priced to top it all off. We will definitely be using his services in the future!


Very knowledgeable, professional and reliable. I would not hesitate to recommend Roderick to anyone.

Personal Attention

Roderick would answer my calls or texts immediately and offered so much more personal attention than I expected.

Great Listener

He listens to what the client wants and then makes it materialize.

Made the Task of remodeling enjoyable.

Rod has been our designer through two remodels in the last 15 years. He takes the time upfront to understand what we want, discuss our budget and manage expectations so we can plan accordingly. He is honest, and reliable and makes the daunting task of remodeling enjoyable. I appreciate that he offers levels of service so we can conquer the tasks with a clear understanding of who is responsible for what. He has impeccable design taste and knows who to call and where to buy whatever you need to find. If you are looking for an interior designer, look no further r99 design is the best.

Trusted him 100%

Was great working with r99 design. Had worked with other interior designers and he’s been the best so far. Loved how he listened to exactly what i wanted. He made a drawing of what the room will look like. After the room was done it looked exactly like how he drew it for me. It was amazing. I didn’t have to do a thing and that was a big relief because i work and was not able to be there. I trusted him 100%. Can’t wait to work with him again on another room I want done.”

You will not be disappointed

The best decision I made was to hire Rod Reed owner of r99 design to decorate my new home. I just moved to OC from a furnished apartment in San Francisco. Needless to say, I needed everything but was on a strict budget. Rod’s initial meeting is professional; his experience demonstrates his expertise as an interior designer with excellent listening skills and flexibility to better understand my ideas and concerns. The best part is I had a blast working with Rod; it was a lot of fun to see how the dining and living room started to take shape with a new look and feel. You will not be disappointed with the end result by hiring Rod.
