In Rachelle's living room, a rich and colorful rug is layered on top of another, creating a kaleidoscope of colors on the floor. Bright turquoise sheets in her bedroom complement the framed photo of a bright French Quarter house she took on a recent trip to a jazz festival. Clearly, Rachelle isn't afraid of color — just take a peek at any room in her Berkeley home, which she describes as "rainbow bohemian." The home was constructed in the 1930s as a pottery studio for the original owner, Rachelle says. "There's still a little smokestack on the roof, where the old kiln used to be," she adds. "I'm an interior designer, and love the idea that I'm continuing the creative energy for which the home was built."
