Rachel’s first career was in the City working as a broker at several American banks. This client-facing role developed skills in negotiation, attention to detail and diplomacy. A career change in terms of product beckoned and 12 years working for a property search agency ensued.
Here, search and advice on the purchase of residential property in London meant honing the skills learnt in the City as well as developing a love of property and interiors. It is this love of interiors which lead Rachel to set up Rachel Webster Interiors to use the client-facing skills of the City and property search, along with the ideas and inspiration from viewing thousands of properties over the years into a design practice with the client at its heart.
“Having spent many years looking at other people’s houses, I decided to put into practice this knowledge of what works, and what doesn’t, to design practical, but stylish homes”
