Designer Spotlight | RTG Designs
Good design isn’t just beautiful. It must be functional, too. That’s Rebecca Goodman’s M.O., principal designer at RTG Designs in Toronto, Canada. At RTG Designs, rich hues, customized designs and functional creativity deliver maximum impact.
Rebecca's lifelong passion for interior design led her to study at the prestigious Parsons School in New York City. Since graduating in 2007, Rebecca worked for design firms in both New York and Toronto prior to launching RTG Designs. She believes that good design should reflect every project's unique needs while remaining functional and aesthetically beautiful. RTG provides a full range of interior and exterior design services for projects of all sizes and budgets, from color consultations to complete renovations and new builds.

While we’d like to say the focal point of this room is the Organic White counters, it’s really the light wood accents that steal the show in this bright and fresh kitchen. Together with the tumbled subway tile and matte black pendants, this space has just the right amount of texture to hold our interest (and has us thinking up ways to get invited over for dinner).
Believe it or not, this pied-à-terre is just a mere 700 square feet – not kidding. But that number did little in limiting Rebecca’s design hopes for this home. Although it took some back and forth, Rebecca ultimately got her clients to ditch their formal dining area for a more casual (and space saving) design, extending the Organic White island to create high-rise seating.
Design Tip: If you want to make your bathroom look unique, a custom vanity can make a world of difference. Rebecca worked with Watchtower Interiors to create this navy bespoke cabinet that contrasts beautifully with the Organic White surface and subway tiled wall, while adding additional storage space.
From sleek and modern to classic and ornate, the right hardware can refresh the entire look of a bathroom. These looped stainless steel pulls add a custom touch to this Pure White double vanity and offer a refreshing break from the predominately sharp and rectangular features of this powder room.
Not unlike the previous bathroom, Rebecca continues the geometric play in this master bath, but this time she kept the stainless steel pulls linear and square and instead hung rounded mirrors above the oversized Pure White vanity.
If we had to choose three words to describe this semi-custom kitchen, it would be sleek, edgy and (of course) functional – as all RTG Design spaces are!
We don’t think we could love an entry way more if we tried! Rebecca proves Caesarstone isn’t just for the kitchen or bathroom, creating a floating shelf from Pure White that integrates perfectly into the pattern and dimensions of the wall paneling.
Rebecca took what was once a dark and gloomy kitchen lacking storage and style and transformed it into a bright and fresh gathering space using Pure White quartz. Her favorite project detail? “The integrated shiplap pantry with push latch closures!”
