A full service interior design business is opening on Main Street in Downtown Buffalo. Raelyn Woltz, a graduate of Buffalo State (degree in Interior Design) is the owner and principal designer of West End Interiors.
Raelyn has been in the interior design business for over seven years, and will now be bringing that experience and expertise into a market that could use some additional design resources. When it comes to interior design, Raelyn retains a modern, “West-Coast-cool” aesthetic that she incorporates into her aesthetics, whether it’s kitchens, select flooring, wallpaper, bathrooms, built-ins and cabinets, contemporary lighting, and tile work.
I spoke to Raelyn earlier today, and she told me that she opened West End Interiors in March of 2018. She quickly grew out of her home office and decided that it was time to open up an office and design showroom at 686 Main Street. Once open, the design shop will be open as a one-stop-shop for clients, but it will also be open to the public for free design consultations. Raelyn says that she will be featuring a number of design materials in the space, so that people can browse the selections. There will also be a communal table, where people can bring in their own color swatches, tiles, magazine clippings, etc., and brainstorm project ideas and concepts (even if they already have a contractor or design concept/layout). The brainstorming aspect would be free of charge, but anything beyond that would be considered a paid service.
While West End Interiors does specialize in residential projects, Raelyn tells me that she also handles boutique business projects where she can work closely with the clients.
Raelyn is planning for the grand opening of West End Interiors on March 9. After that, the business will be open to the public.
