REBECCA O’ROURKE,Owner & Sr. Designer
HELLO! I’m Rebecca, and I am truly delighted you’re here. Why did I decide to become an Entrepreneur and with it adopt a whole new set of responsibilities? Trust me, it is not always glamorous and the best reward is client’s reactions and kudos.
MY MISSION. I founded this business in 2001 because I felt –through working for major remodeling companies and kitchen and bath firms; that client’s needs were not being met. I noticed a huge disconnect between what I had discussed with the client and included in the design concept and scope of work; to what the production team delivered. Often feeling that I had let the client down.
I wanted to change the process and the experience for YOU…the client. I wanted to be involved in every aspect so I could deliver as promised and I could help the client navigate the decisions, changes and the unexpected. I set out to create an interior design company that paid attention to customers’ needs, wants, and desires, yet remained flexible, honest, and capable of delivering on its promises. I wanted a new standard for the experience clients had while renovating their homes or through working with a designer. At Sea Interior Design, our commitment to customer satisfaction is matched only by our dedication to artistry.
I’m a mom, a designer, a biz owner, and a fierce advocate for spaces that inspire. I believe that you only live once, so every moment counts. Choose fresh flowers, not fake ones. Function is fine, but beauty is better. Symmetry is negotiable, but gratitude is not. Laughter is precious, and the ocean is everything.
MY BIGGEST ACCOMPLISHMENT: my kids, all five of them.
MY ANCHOR: my husband, Brian
MY HOME: Southern, CA but I grew up in London and have lived in many places
LAURA DAYBALL, Assistant Jr. Designer
I have always found solace in creating beautiful things. From a very young age, I’ve been sketching, studying music, dance, and even planning different furniture arrangements for my own spaces. When I made the decision to study Interior Design, I felt like I had finally found my life’s calling. There are only a few industries in this world where people are able create to make life a little more beautiful and organized.
What drives me in my work is the thought of making someone’s quality of life better through their individual style and needs.
As an Orange County native, I have always tried to draw my inspiration from not only my own background, but also from the diverse cultures, lifestyles, and environmental elements in our own backyard.
My personal aesthetic has become an eclectic accumulation of what I’ve experienced, with a focus on minimalism and serenity. I believe our homes should be our personal oasis. A place where we can re-charge and turn off the stressors of our hectic lives when we want to. My mission is to help you create that oasis.
