I’m Rachel Shingleton and I’ve never met a color I didn’t love. I’m been a multi-hyphenate creative for over ten years with a specialty in interior design, photography, styling, product design and graphic design. I provide high quality tailor-made creative services both to individuals and to brands, and I share my creative journey here at the blog.




Using my expertise and favorite sources to create colorful, tailor-made interiors that match my clients’ lifestyle and personality, I’m able to provide a unique, one-of-a-kind look for each individual client. From smaller styling projects like help with art, accessories and window treatments to full-scale complete room packages, I’m happy to work with you to get your home technicolor gorgeous.


My background in branding and graphic design gives me a distinct edge in understanding how identity plays a major role in visually expressing who we are as individuals.


Fans of Pencil Shavings Studio love color, bold pattern, travel, eclectic design, and have a specific sense of self.  My clients want a home that doesn’t look like everybody else’s on the block where they can create memories for a lifetime — and that’s where I’m truly able to shine.

Interior designers are able to provide a wealth of time and cost-cutting benefits to clients in addition to their particular stylistic outlook. I’m usually able to pass along discounts of up to 30% off traditional retail pricing to my clients.

But beyond the mere savings, I’m also providing the benefit of being a sounding board. Most people are afraid of making mistakes when it comes to designing their homes. Buying furniture is expensive, no matter what your budget is. The more I can help you feel confident in your purchasing decisions, the better I’ve done my job. Consider me your design therapist.

But all of this hinges on trust. I can make your space beautiful and it’s also my job to push you aesthetically — think outside the box, if you will.

This depends on the scope of the project and what is purchased. Occasionally there are delays caused by weather, vendor vacations, factory errors, and other unpredictable influences, that are out of my control. The client as well as all professionals hired to work on the project are expected to not cause unreasonable delays in the project.

That being said, a complete room design will mostly likely take anywhere from 8 to 12 weeks from approval of the initial concept to final installation of the room. My best advice is to be patient and remember that the final product is always worth the wait. It’s not advisable to attempt room redos a month out from an anticipated occasion such as party or holiday season.

I’m currently accepting new clients in Oklahoma City and Carlton Landing for early 2019. Email me to reserve your spot.


Consultations are $250; you receive up to two hours of my time including an on-site visit and a follow-up email to outline the ideas we discussed. Please note that no products, floor plans, specific paint colors or other recommendations will be provided in this particular consult.

My hourly rate is $125 an hour and is billed on a monthly basis. Pricing on individual items is usually less than retail, but it depends on the source. Hourly services can be capped, but there is a minimum of 10 hours per complete room design to get the best possible results and allow for any unforeseen issues.

I do my best to give you a full cost outlook of each item, but additional costs such as storage, shipping, installation, or unexpected labor do occasionally happen.

Not at this time. Stay tuned! I am happy to travel; additional fees are incurred.

I hate to say it, but probably not. If you want stark, achromatic rooms, I’m probably not your girl.

Absolutely not!  I’m happy to work with any budget; to maintain realistic expectations, however, expect that most living room budgets hover around $10,000 for entire room transformations.
