Meet Riley Fleming, one of our Interior Designers here at Glenn|Partners. Riley was born and raised right here in Dallas, TX. She is a recent graduate from the University of Oklahoma, BOOMER SOONER! In Riley’s free time, she enjoys exploring new places in Dallas with her friends and listening to live music, but Saturdays are dedicated to watching OU football.
Whenever Riley has a free weekend, she loves to travel. Some of her favorite places she loves to visit are Frisco, Colorado, Carillon Beach, Florida, Savannah, Georgia, and at the top of the list is New Orleans, Louisiana!
"When you look at a design, it’s not just a box or a space but a character. It has perspective, it speaks, it possesses a spirit that evokes all types of emotions."
During Riley’s time at Glenn|Partners, Riley has been working our Bluebonnet Elementary School for Lewisville ISD and the renovations to Garland ISD’s Harris Hill Administration Building. Riley is also working alongside Briar Glenn on the FFE packages for Ursuline Academy of Dallas and Bishop Dunne High School.

First Moment when you realized you wanted to be an Interior Designer
When I was 4 years old, I picked up scrap wood and created a piece, painted it, and gave it a unique function. Fast forward 10 years, I would walk into a building or space and wonder who designed it. The moment I knew I wanted to be a designer was at a restaurant in Dallas. I could see how the built environment created an amazing atmosphere that brought the community together. That is when I knew that I wanted to design spaces to create “experiences” for people.
