With a Bachelors of Fine Arts in Interior Design from Harrington College of Design in Chicago, Rachel has gone on to establishing her own residential and commercial design business based out of the Tri-Cities and Metro Detroit area of Michigan. Her experience has included working with various architecture firms, contractors, cabinet companies, builders and designers mostly out of New York and Michigan primarily offering 3D rendering work. Rachel has developed a keen eye for design with her attention to details. Her passion to transform a room with light and textures is evident in the spaces she designs, making every room classical and functional.
From where do you draw most of your inspiration?
I draw most of my inspiration from the places I go and see. It can be from even staying at a hotel on vacation. It is during those times I get to see how others design spaces and their functionality and from there I can take my experience of "living it" to know what works and doesn't work in a space I design.
Describe your favorite project:
One of my favorite projects I got to work on this year was creating renderings for a Crossfit fitness center that is in the process of being constructed in Manhattan, NY. I am so used to doing residential projects that it was a breath of fresh air to work on something as new and as exciting as that.
What drives you to design?
Since a very early age I have loved drawing. I started drawing bird's eye views and perspectives of interior spaces at a very early age. I knew by the time I went to college that interior design was the path I was going to take in my career.
