  • WELCOME to House of Rumours…

    Hi! I'm Ruthie and I'm in love with every aspect of design. Everything from contemporary design to rustic decor to modern industrial builds! I don’t care what it is, I LOVE IT ALL!!

    I dream at night of my next project, whether its a new wall finish, building or painting a piece of furniture or tackling an entire room makeover. I ABSOLUTELY love metallics & shine and therefore try to incorporate a little “bling” in all that I do.

    I offer interior design consultation and custom refinishing work here in here AZ. Feel free to contact me for an estimate!
