MICHAEL RAINES
Creative Designer

I’ve always been endlessly fascinated with all things creative and beautiful. I started out my design career 18 years ago in the visual design industry and always enjoyed bringing creative ideas to life. I always knew that my life’s passion would be in the field of design and acquired the distinction of RGD (Registered Graphic Designer) in 2014. RGD is a community hub that works to establish professional standards, best practices and innovative thinking within the design industry. I feel very fortunate to be born with a good design eye and becoming a creative designer was the obvious choice for me.
Throughout my extensive career as a visual designer, I developed a strong understanding of scale and proportion, the nuances of colour, and a in-depth knowledge of the creative process to create pleasing compositions. It was only natural that I want to apply these skills to interior home design that I feel is a union of beauty and functionality and can truly enhance the quality of peoples lives.


I feel my interior design is mostly influenced by contemporary and vintage that I like to refer to as “cosmopolitan sophistication”. The look can speak to anyone who takes pleasure in being surrounded in tailored, formal glamour.  I feel a dramatic mix of contemporary pieces mingle well with classic furniture makes for a unique home living space. I enjoy creating a captivating design palettes for every project and I feel the design palette grounds me and keeps the design consistent, allowing me to gain an intimate knowledge of each design. I take tremendous pride in my designs and enjoy continuing to refine my approach.


I feel beauty makes the world a better place and leaves poeple feeling
calmer and happier. This is my motivation to keep improving and creating great work. Everyone deserves a home where they love to live.
