Rachelle is a dream to work with, with a color sense that is perfect for us, and it all worked within our budget! We are so happy with our "new" dining room, as well as with the more subtle color changes in the living room and hall (and all the ceilings) -- and in my study. Rachelle also helped us find just the right bedroom furniture, including dealing with the frustrations of a company we'd ordered from going bankrupt. Working with Rachelle is like working with your best friend, but she's got the decorating expertise.
We love the spirit of our home and the color combinations that make it uniquely ours. Friends and family always comment on how comfortable our home is and volunteer our home for holiday celebrations. Rachelle is an expert on color! We love it!

Rachelle worked magic remodeling our real estate offices. Her creative vision transformed our space from cramped and boring to spacious and beautiful. Colleagues can easily communicate. Clients feel graciously welcomed.
We asked Rachelle how we could create a dining room in a small space we had just added to our home. In our first meeting with her, Rachelle's skillful questions & comments awakened us to discover what we really wanted…not what we thought we should want! We ended up with a magical, glowing, warm sunroom that has become our favorite room in our house. Along with a wondrous sense of color, function and design, Rachelle truly has a magical ability to collaborate with her clients to find their own aesthetic "voice." We'll never make another design decision without her input!

Rachelle has an amazing eye for color, texture and design. She collaborates well and listened deeply to how I wanted to have my living space at home & my home office reflect my true spirit. The results were phenomenal. I now feel both relaxed & inspired in both environments. My living and work spaces are now transformed…and so am I!
Not only did Rachelle transform my dark & depressing office into an exquisitely beautiful, serene, inviting and inspiring place to work, collaborating with her was also an incredibly fun & enriching experience. She drew out the best part of me and showed me how to express it in my physical environment. Now every time my eyes rest on those wonderful textures, patterns and colors, I feel a rush of energy and a desire to give my best to the world.
Rachelle has an amazing sense of color and texture. She can navigate a busy design showroom and leave with the perfect fabric choice. We love our new window treatments and pillows.
Goodfriend Design Group took our condo from cold contemporary to warm modern by transforming the colors of each room.

I love my new office! Rachelle turned a small, uninspired place into a warm room that my colleagues enjoy spending time in. I've had to restrict their visiting hours!
Rachelle has an impeccable sense of color and a great eye for so many different kinds of style: the elegant and the playful, the classic and the modern, the simple and the sensuous. Plus, she knows how to put it all together with idiosyncratic flourishes that make it your own. The ultimate bonus: she works fast, so you don't have to wait forever to enjoy the finished product.
Rachelle worked with me to choose paint colors for my kitchen. I wanted something exciting and different. Rachelle's instinctive style and her eye for the perfect colors to inspire my cooking really made all the difference. I now love my kitchen!
Rachelle's sense of design -- colors, textures, proportion, space are unique. The overall feeling when the project is completed is one of warmth, coziness and an inviting space that blends in well with the rest of the home. She is great to work with because she listens to the clients needs; design, use, and budget, and adds her own dimension to it. Great experience.
My weekend home is My Happy Home – it’s cozy and welcoming. I wanted my City home to be inviting as well, but it was cold and stark. Voila, Rachelle added crown molding and painted each room yummy, warm colors. I now have My Happy Home #2!
The colors that Rachelle chose for our home in Boston have literally transformed how we feel in our living space. She has an uncanny way of quickly zeroing in on what will work. She is the best, most tuned in designer we have ever worked with.
