Project Overview: The Randall Residence

The recent project at the Randall residence showcases Rachel Clark’s dedication to creating spaces that feel both timeless and modern. Starting with the main floor, Clark and her team transformed the space by repainting every room, introducing grasscloth wallpaper, and adding new area rugs, stair runners and furniture. The design also featured custom millwork around the new fireplace and built-ins in the small library, carefully crafted to appear original to the home yet with a modern twist.

The homeowner’s preference for a modern, organic aesthetic influenced the project, ensuring the home felt welcoming and cozy from the moment one stepped inside. The culmination of this project was the complete remodel of the kitchen, which now features white cabinetry, a warm-toned wood island, quartz countertops, and new lighting throughout the kitchen and family room. This space was designed to be perfect for entertaining, embodying Clark’s philosophy of making a home a haven for comfort and joy.
