Christian Ray Interiors is a full service residential design firm based in the suburbs of Charlotte, North Carolina.  Owner, Rachel Patteson, draws her inspiration from her father Christian Brown Salminen.  From a young age, Rachel was easily influenced by her fathers craftsmanship.  "He did everything himself, and I wanted to do it all too".  Her father was always sketching, building and dreaming big!  The firm draws it's mantra from just that, "inspired by my father, created by me".  Offerings include space planning, staging, decorating and architectural detailing.  Whether it's new construction or a renovation, CR Interiors is involved in all aspects of the planning stages thru production to ensure 100% client satisfaction.  For those clients that we cannot assist onsite we offer limited e- design services as well.


Rachel Patteson, owner and designer, launched her firm in 2015.  She is a busy working mom to 4 littles, and truly understands the fundamentals of designing with functionality.  Utilizing her Real Estate background, she has taken her passion and appreciation for homes to a new creative level.   While still maintaining her real estate license as a broker, Rachel is able to offer her clients a unique turn-key experience that sets her apart from others in her industry.

 "Finding the perfect move in ready home isn't always an option for home buyers, but when you can work with a Realtor that can also help you realize a new home's potential by changing the design of it, it helps to alleviate so much of the stress that goes along with finding the perfect home. There's no better feeling when you're able to offer a client the option to buy just an average house that will become the home of their dreams!"
