Over 45 years of experience providing ideas and inspiration across a wide spectrum of diverse architectural styles and eclectic tastes. Large or small projects are treated with the same integrity and dedication to quality results and client satisfaction. US offices have been located in Beverly Hills, Dallas, New Orleans, and New York, and currently in Todos Santos, Baja California Sur, Mexico.

Aesthetic Sensibility and Influences: Wendy is best known for her adventurous use of color and textures,  her eclectic melding of cultures, a playful mix of traditional and contemporary details, with a bit of glamour and whimsy thrown in. Someone who loves challenges, she has earned her clients’ respect as a problem solver who also has a practical eye for scale and function. 

“Working with Wendy Rains is the next best thing to being there to manage your project yourself. Actually, it is better! She cares about your project -- large or small -- and you don't have to worry about the details! If you have a chance to hire Wendy Rains to work with you, do it! She's great!”  M.Gelman

Influenced by her extensive travels, and some of the places she has called home, Wendy’s personal inspirations come from the mid-century kitch of Miami Beach and Palm Springs, the Art Deco period of Paris and Old Hollywood, the Zen-like simplicity of Asia, modern Italian lines and forms,  to the bold use of colors and whackiness of “swinging” London, and the exotic rich jewel tones and textures of India and Nepal.

“Wendy brings passion, energy, and imagination to everything she does….but the best part is that she delivers more than she promises!” J. Howard

Featured here are just some of Wendy’s most recent projects over the past few years in Baja California…. along with what some of her clients have to say about working with her.
