Ricky Villanueva Jr, designer and window covering specialist isn’t about flash, but about substance, style and fresh approaches to traditional and modern ideas. Knowing every client has their own unique style; he offers his undivided attention and assists each client with an open mind. Exceptional design solutions are only the beginning.
By staying as flexible as he is focused, he meets the pragmatic, technical and budgetary demands of builders and clients projects.
Ricky has earned a reputation as one of Galveston’s preeminent designer and window covering specialist. Over the years, his design projects have been noted for their modish fusion of transitional style, the perfect blend of contemporary and traditional elements,- a creative expression that comes naturally to the Houston, West University and River Oaks area where Ricky began his design career in finance, controlling costs and purchasing.
Today Ricky’s impeccable understanding of the client’s vision allows him to streamline reviews of the finest fabrics, paint colors, furniture pieces, art, and window fashion. Working with best-of-class workmanship providers, his projects reflect the meticulous manner of small details -- always with the client’s personal style in mind.
"A client needs guidance, and sense of designing from someone who knows," explains Ricky, who understands that no two clients are alike. “One interior theme is not good for everyone. A certain personality has to fit each client when selecting the appropriate piece”
Ricky reminds clients to be adventurous for an interior to look stunning, every detail must be appropriate for the shape and style of the home.
“The result is creative designs that are highly regarded for execution and concept, where the smallest details are as well thought-out as the spaces themselves".
Galveston Hunter Douglas Priority Dealer
I was born and raised in east Texas. I’ve lived in Galveston for more than twenty years and love the island life. My husband, Luke and I have been married for 4 years and share many grandchildren.
I started part-time with Chunky Funky Monkey 3 years ago as marketer. When I decided to start working full-time, I also took on the position as store manager. Adding to my list of many duties you sometimes find me out and about assisting with in-home consultations. Working with Ricky Villanueva has been a joy, challenging, but a joy. I am so excited and cannot wait for this year’s new line in window coverings and interior design. We have so much to offer and ready to assist with all remodeling projects and home decor.
And she's off- from assisting design projects, buying, staging, window coverings and bookkeeping, Terri Wilmoth does it all.
Can you keep up with Terri?
I’m from Beaumont Texas and moved to Galveston in 2006. I am married to a wonderful husband of 26 years and we have a beautiful 16 year old daughter.
Working in the home decor industry for over 8 years
and having a keen eye for design has been helpful in my
transition into a selective buyer and design assistant. Chunky Funky Monkey has allowed me the opportunity to continue building relationships with clients here on Galveston Island. I’m very grateful to Ricky Villanueva for giving me the opportunity of working to broaden my staging and window covering skills.
