Help Me Rhonda, help, help me Rhonda.

For 30 years, that’s exactly what HMR, Help Me Rhonda’s Interiors, has been doing.

Rhonda Holloway started her company in 1992, mostly doing design furniture, draperies, accessories and colour consultations in Durham Region.

She also had a painting crew and specialized in faux finishes. 

In 2005, her husband John retired as a millwright and joined the business to help Rhonda expand HMR’s services.

“Before that, I was watching my clients spend over budget for important things like window coverings, accessories to finish the look, or on the other end of the spectrum their contractors were not completing the job,” Rhonda says.

Sometimes parts were missing, even small touches like crown moulding at the top of the cabinets but very important at the same time.

“So now we do in-home renovations, which include beautiful dream kitchens and master bathrooms, flooring, tile — anything that the inside of a home needs,” she says.

“We have a wonderful team of cabinet manufacturers, carpenters, electricians, plumbers and other trades.”

John is very knowledgeable about blinds and shutters, and has expertise at installing blinds and draperies and other essentials, Rhonda said.

He also helps her with things like furniture placement and hanging artwork.

The couple moved to Niagara-on-the-Lake a month ago and, even though it was a scary decision giving up 30 years of clients, they wanted to be closer to their children and grandchildren.

We absolutely love it here and find the people so kind and generous,” Rhonda says. “And the wine, of course!”

Rhonda takes a project from beginning to end, listening to the client’s needs and working with their budget. 

“People always ask where I get my gift from and I have had several years of training but I do believe all true artists are born with their gifts,” she says.

“There are many things I’m not talented at – like singing, but I can make a beautiful home.”

“It’s been a passion since I’ve had since I was a young girl.”

Among the services HMR provides are colour consultations, window coverings such as blinds and draperies, furniture and upholstery, area rugs, accessories, plus kitchen and bathroom renovations,.

“It’s a complete in-home decorating and renovation service,” Rhonda says. 

The company carries Sun Glow window coverings, Hunter Douglas shutters, JF Fabrics for all your drapery and upholstery needs, carpets and rugs from Minster Interiors, furnishings by companies like Elran Motion Furniture, Brentwood Classics, Renwil,  Korson, and solid wood items from Durham Furniture, plus many more. 

 “Call us today for a consult and any of your project-related questions,” Rhonda says.

“We’re ready to help you.”
