Rima founded TEW on the principle that design should be fun, exciting and daring. She earned her undergraduate degree in Arts & Culture from George Mason University and graduated with a master’s in Interior Design from the Florence Design Academy in Italy.

She leads our team with a unique cultural insight from her experiences both domestically and abroad. As a Palestinian, Rima’s family moved to the U.S. when she was 15 and settled in Richmond. She grew up enjoying architecture from around the world. From an early age, simple, earthy design caught her eye, as did the use of greenery and Moroccan influences with bold colors and patterns. Rima lives in Cary with her husband Andy and two dogs, Jupiter and Carl.
