Just walked in the door. I LOVE IT! Thank you so much! This is so exciting! You are wonderful! Am I crazy or does the lower furniture actually make the LR look bigger?

Having downsized from a large suburban home to an urban condo, I needed a lot of help in defining what would work best and choosing everything from basic furniture to accessories. Rachel was very patient as I talked about my style and color likes and dislikes, regardless of how general they were. Somehow she took those conversations and developed a plan that immediately struck me as what I wanted to have. Instead of imposing her tastes on mine, she worked to see what I liked and then chose great things to fit. So, in Rachel, there’s a great design talent, as well as a genuinely nice person with whom to work. For me, it was her patience with me not knowing what I wanted at first in combination with her design skills and talents that make me perfectly satisfied with Rachel James Interiors. I’ve lived in my new place for nearly two years and the layout, furniture and colors all work wonderfully.

We have enjoyed working with Rachel over the past few years on several different projects.  Rachel is a delight to work with, always coming up with great design choices that match our style and budget, whether sourcing new pieces or working with items already in our home.  She is professional, friendly, flexible and very understanding of our family’s needs and schedule.  We look forward to working together on other projects!

Ending the year with two new bathrooms that Joe and I really love. Since we bought the house six years ago, the only one who used our second floor bathroom was our cat (his litter box was in the shower), so it’s like we got a whole new room for Christmas. Thanks for everything, you’ve been great!

Rachel: Thank you for your highly professional and extremely cordial manner during our project. Your recommendations were first class and I really got to see some lovely fabrics…we made choices that I think will make me feel very comfortable in my new surroundings. Again, thanks so much for a very enjoyable experience. I look forward to your next visit.

This is the most comfortable and relaxing great room I have ever had in any of my homes.

Rachel is great to work with. At our initial meeting, we discussed the look and feel I was going for, as well as the budget. She presented me with ideas I hadn’t considered, like reupholstering my chairs, using a different color paint accent on the wall, and installing a natural wood hanging shelf above my fireplace to name a few. Rachel always presented me with several options and was always open to my suggestions as well. Rachel was also able to coordinate all the different craftsmen that were involved in the project, what a relief! Rachel’s expertise elevated my home from nice to fantastic. I LOVE it!!!!! By the way Rachel, I have some more rooms to do!

I highly recommend Rachel James, who did our fun basement remodel–a hangout for our two “tweens.” She is so talented and great to work with.
