Meet the Designer

Paula RYAN

Hello there, I’m Paula Ryan. So glad you made it here, where I can share my expertise and passion for home improvement with you.


My design journey began in 1993 when I put on a hard hat and joined forces with my husband Mike at his construction company, Ryan Homes and Development. While building is in our blood, I saw a need to start my own gig as Paula Ryan Designs, guiding clients through the maze of design decisions long before the hammer swings and construction begins.


The secret sauce is my magical combination of interior design and construction, where creative ideas and thoughtful planning can prevent frustration and costly mistakes. As your project coordinator, I’ve got you, and the minutia too. I will guide you through the many details and choices that make a big difference in the look, feel, and function of a home. PRD can tackle a wide range of projects, from a single room refresh to a complete remodel…and I must say, my team of trusted trade professionals are the best.


A happy client and happy house are my ultimate goals. You will feel comfortable and confident having a pro in the know, with design expertise that will take your new updates to another level. Your house will say, “I woke up like this!”


Get excited about the transformation!

I look forward to

creating a space you love.
