America’s first interior designer, Elsie de Wolfe, said, “a person’s environment will speak for their life, whether they like it or not.” If a home is one’s spokesman, then I am its speechwriter. I ensure that the message a home communicates about its residents is the most beautiful it can possibly be. I read and rewrite every space I’m in. Obsessively.
With a past in visual merchandising and retail design for major corporations such as Microsoft, Amazon and HTC, my projects have appeared in major retailers around the globe. I have a deep understanding and love for Seattle’s tech community, but leaving that behind, I have set my focus solely on my first love - residential interior design, creating beautiful homes my clients never want to leave.
My family moved all over when I was a kid - even to the Philippines and Ireland - sometimes multiple times a year. We weren’t even in the military…just nomads. This experience gave me a global perspective on life and design, which carries forth today in my love of travel and concept of home.
As a child, I made the most of our moves, by making each new house a home for me and our large family. I'd turn sheets into block-painted curtains, a garage into a budget bedroom using stencils and carpet scraps, and a camping tent into a backyard den complete with TV and VCR. This same industriousness and creativity is infused into every one of the projects completed by Rebecca Rowland Interiors.
Outside of running my business, I am spending time with my husband, Joe, and teenage daughter, Audrey, traveling the world as much as possible, indulging my love of spicy, red wines, and facing the daily reality that my 3-year-old miniature pinscher mix rescue, Indiana Bones, is not actually a human.
