So I finally got my own bedroom at age 15 and then watch out! It was a continuous stage to arrange, rearrange, decorate and practice my craft!I began working in a flower shop at age 13, working all the way through High School and beyond. I traveled a fabulous year in Up with People, an International Singing group in 1979 and 1980 and arrived back to Wyoming, and believe it or not, I had a two year career in the Wyoming Oil fields, climbing rigs in steel toed boots, in my hard hat! Woof! lol… Anyway, back to my roots… I went back to my artsy side and flowers called me back. In 1985 Colorado Springs became home and the Broadmoor Hotel became my platform to design in the florist there until I became antsy to do my own thing.In 1987, my partner Greg Wragge and I opened Rich Designs Home. The business has continually transformed year after year becoming a great destination for Fresh Flowers, Interiors and Art. Thank you for allowing me to touch your lives in so many ways I must say the ride has been a good one! https://www.richschellinteriors.com
