We recently sat down to chat with Rachel Waldron of Waldron Designs. She is THE go to person here on Vashon for all things interiors and architecture. If you’ve never met Rachel, look for her around town – she’ll definitely brighten your day!
VH: From where do you hail?
RW: I’m originally from Seattle, where I worked for an architecture firm before starting my own business and moving to Vashon three and half years ago.
VH: Tell us more about your business.
RW: We offer interior design, space planning, and architecture. We can do anything for your home from a design standpoint. Mostly we work on residential projects – from the smallest color consult (one time in your home) all the way up to new construction. We were recently featured in a gorgeous coffee table book that was exciting to be included in and we hope to do more in the future.
VH: When did you start your business?
RW: I started my business while living in Seattle, but then had to start from scratch when we moved to Vashon. Most of my clients live here on the island.
VH: What’s next for Waldron Designs?
RW: Entertaining the idea of DESIGN BUILD – a full service – one-stop shop for design and build so clients can work with only us vs. many different service providers – we would manage the whole thing. This is still out in the future, but we think it could be a great service to provide.
VH: What is your superpower?
RW: Creating Cohesion. Working in mis-matched space or even with mis-matched ideas. Understanding what actually works.
VH: When you have company visiting, where do you tell them to go?
RW: KVI Beach, Island Center Forest, May Restaurant, First Friday
