We had the good fortune of connecting with Rachel Logue and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Rachel, can you share a quote or affirmation with us?
I have so many favorite quotes and affirmations but one that always sticks out in my mind is from the Wizard of OZ when Glinda says to Dorothy, “You had the power all along my dear.” It’s such a powerful thought to know that everything you need is inside of you and all you have to do is believe it. As a woman business owner this quote comes in handy whenever a little self-doubt creeps in. It’s also such a great motivator for going after all of my dreams whether personal or business related. I visualize the outcome I desire and know the power to achieve them is always within.
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I feel that my “art” is constantly changing as I grow. What once started as simply a job has turned into something where I feel like I can make a difference in people’s lives. Designing spaces for people like kitchens and bathrooms are so personal. Kitchens in particular are a place to spend time with family and friends and make memories. To know that I am helping facilitate that is extremely rewarding. Part of what sets me apart is that I try to take a deeper look at things. I want to know how my clients live and envision using their space. I try to bring a unique flavor to each design to reflect the client. Lately I have become more concerned with the health of our lives and our planet and I’m beginning to explore options for how we can bring healing into our own spaces. Little things like a place for an herb garden by a window can make a huge difference. I truly try to bring a soul into my designs and that’s what I hope people remember when they work with me.
Any great local spots you’d like to shoutout?
Palm Beach Gardens is such a great place to live. We are so close to Palm Beach Island which is a must see for visitors. A drive along the iconic Worth Avenue followed by lunch at Taboo or the Breakers is a great start to the day. Driving along the beach road with the windows down and then heading to the gardens at the Society of the Four Arts would be next. We’d probably head for a drive along Clematis avenue and have dinner somewhere along the strip. There are some great farm to table restaurants in the area that I love going to. No visit is complete without heading up to the Square Grouper in Jupiter for a drink. You get a view of the whole inlet and the lighthouse with some live music…it’s magical. I also love visiting our Sunday farmer’s market. It’s a great place to meet up with friends and buy from our local vendors.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
My biggest shoutout would go to my mother. She herself is an entrepreneur. Growing up and seeing her be her own boss showed me that I wanted that for myself. I also have to give a shout out to all the places I worked before I decided to go into business for myself. I always felt like I could do things better if I was in control so that was a huge motivating factor for deciding to start my own business. And on a deeper level, a lot of my success is owed to thought leaders like Oprah, Deepak Chopra, Wayne Dyer, Michael Beckwith and Louise Hay to name a few. The lessons I learned from them about the power of our own thoughts gave me such a sense of empowerment and continues to help me grow everyday. Affirmations have been a huge part of my success and my office has them written all over the place.
