RH Kitchen Design is the culmination of Raissa Hall's extensive life experience in the design industry. Raissa was the daughter of a Brazilian stone quarry owner, which sparked her curiosity and a lifelong passion for using natural substances to create beautiful, functional living spaces.
She moved to the United States at age 18. Having been exposed to sourcing and rough fabrication of stone while growing up, she took a job with Block Tops in Southern California in 2002. There she became familiar with cabinetry manufacturers and the complete installation process. She later studied interior design at Florida State, ultimately achieving her certification from the National Kitchen and Bath Association with an AKDB.
Early in her career, she worked at home centers for kitchen and bath remodel and high-end interior design firms before collaborating and opening R Cabinet Studio in Florida in 2013. As the Senior Kitchen and Cabinetry designer, she was responsible for much of the design-related aspects of the business, including working with architects and interior designers and supervising junior designers. In 2017, she returned to Southern California.
She worked for the next two years for a range of designers and contractors, ultimately applying her experience to consulting engagements based on increasing profitability via change order reduction, client qualification, and efficient design/build processes. In 2021, she founded RH Kitchen Design with the goal of providing those services to interior designers as well as homeowners. Her designs have been featured in Southern Home magazine, Room by Room by Mrs. Howard, and Sun and Surf Magazine. She was featured in the Jacksonville Home Tour Show for three of the ten years she resided in Florida.
Raissa is passionate about using natural products to create modern, functional designs that are ultimately a reflection of the client's lifestyle. The importance of creating and designing two of the main living areas in the home makes her connect on a very personal level with her clients.
