Rachel Shingleton is a color-loving designer, interior stylist and storyteller. A member of the first-ever elite group of My Rowe Designers in 2018, Rachel showcases her bright, fresh approach to interiors in every project she approaches. “Colorful and happy are probably the first two words that come to mind,” says Rachel of her signature style, “but I’m definitely also all about mixing up casual, approachable style with a dash of glam.” When it comes to design, Rachel says, “I need it to be functional and beautiful. But no matter what, it’s got to be colorful.” She often relies on Rowe custom furnishings to translate her playful vision into eye-catching designs like her My Rowe Design bedroom vignette and the other residential projects shown below.

I envisioned a pied-à-terre for a well-heeled woman who doesn’t take herself too seriously.

In her own home, Rachel’s living room was inspired by crisp, modern design, using the Rowe Mitchell Sectional Sofa to explore a palette of neutrals with a range of blues and accents of bold tomato red.

“I love Rowe because they provide quality, timeless pieces that can be customized for any aesthetic. Their pieces feel updated, stylish, and perfectly proportioned. Plus the team at Rowe helps to make every project feel seamless and practically effortless.”

Another residential project by Pencil Shavings Studio made excellent use of the Rowe Townsend Sectional Sofa, in a bold redesign that Rachel dubbed the Sooner Farmhouse. The spacious sectional is complemented by a pair of Thatcher Chairs, which Rachel describes as “a plucky little design with a lot of personality...I’m particularly loving it in a windowpane plaid.”
“The Townsend Sectional Sofa had plenty to offer in the way of customization and it’s so comfortable to lounge around on.”
