For Rachel, it took a chronic diagnosis to begin to learn more about the benefits of a slower lifestyle and incorporating wellness focused design into her life. Rachel then began bringing this new knowledge to her clients and had positive results.
She learned that committing herself to what she loves is freeing and nourishes the soul. It allows her to be fully authentic in her love for beautiful, elegant, classic interiors that support a healthy home and lifestyle for busy families. In interior design, her education never ends. Rachel is constantly attending seminars, trade shows and participating in learning opportunities that enhance her design work.
