Rebecca West
Owner, Lead Designer, Color-Whisperer, Head Janitor

In addition to her interior design degree and certification as a design psychology coach, Rebecca earned a bachelor’s degree in geology, spent four fabulous years teaching ballroom dance, and did a stint in the Peace Corps. Of course her interior design degree is important, but her time studying geology means she’s super-comfortable backing up her design instincts with rational evidence (great for her contractors and guy-clients). Bringing couples together on the dance floor now helps her bring couples together on color. And those loooong 9 months in Nicaragua showed her that she’s an action-seeker, goal setter and list-maker, making her a “let’s-get-this-done” kind of designer.

If you are ready for change, Rebecca will help you zero in on what you need from your home and target a plan for getting it done with laser precision and a bucket-full of sunshine!

Why “transition” design? Rebecca’s story
Why do we specialize in helping people makeover their homes during and after life transitions like divorce, empty nesting, and career shifts?

Because I, Rebecca, have been there. I personally know how important it is to create a home that gives you a fresh start, and how much it can make it possible to begin again. About a decade ago I experienced the pain, stress, and embarrassment of divorce.

 

In fact, Rebecca West Interiors was born out of that ‘adventure’. It was quite a journey transforming ‘our home’ into ‘my home’, but I found that healing from my divorce came from reinventing my environment.

Now I help others experience that same amazing transformation. If it’s time to create a new home for yourself, I’d be honored to be part of that adventure!
