Passion: Following a life-long love and education in interior design, she earned a bachelor’s of art degree in Interior Design from the University of New Haven and Rachel launched Timeless Interiors in 2007. 

A Fresh Start: After a brief hiatus to raise her children, she has re-launched Timeless Interiors this year. Today Rachel is working to bring out the best of her client's personalities in their homes with an ability to bridge the past and the present.  Rachel and husband and their two children, live together in Killingworth, CT. She is currently co-chairing a capital campaign fundraiser for The Congregational Church in Killingworth, called Preservation 2020 to raise funds to restore and preserve the church building. Rachel believes that the building is a symbol of New England towns that we must preserve for future generations. 

Designing for Families: With two children at home, ages 14 and 5, Rachel understands the needs of busy working families that want to live comfortably but with style. She is known for her unique approach to design, with a keen eye for fashioning beautiful, comfortable surroundings while finding creative ways to work within a budget. 

Repurpose and Reuse: In 2011 on the Connecticut shoreline she opened her store, Timeless Home Consignments, which was the manifestation of Rachel’s dream of mixing the old with the new and built a loyal following of customers. With a discerning eye, Rachel could see the beauty in pieces others might overlook and created a collection of found vintage pieces with consigned home goods.

Love of Historic Properties: Having grown up in a 275-year-old Colonial-Era home that was constantly under renovation, Rachel learned early the art and science of turning the old into the new, darkness into light, and small spaces into ones that appear roomy. She uses innovative approaches to creating designs that are meaningful to her clients and understands the delicate nature of historic structures and the importance of preservation. 

"She really took the time to listen to what our family needed and used her creativity to make it work. She has the unique gift to not only make the perfect color and style choices but also empowered me to make my own decisions when  choice seemed overwhelming. She has a warming authentic presence and will truly help you create a space that feels right for you." Lisa, Madison, CT
