Wendy Clayton, Designer at Babel's Canton

Wendy Clayton

Wendy’s lifelong interest in color and visual expression has led her to many schools of thought and design. She has studied graphic design at Massachusetts College of Art and the Portland School of Art in Maine.

She lived in Europe for a number of years pursuing an interest in fashion design at the Paris American Academy in France. Clothes-making would later evolve into two dimensional artwork represented by fourteen galleries in the United States.

She would later study interior design at Massachusetts Bay Community College in Wellesley and become a certified Feng Shui practitioner. Inspired by past influences and experiences, she loves to work with clients on color, energy, and furniture placement to allow for harmonious and functional spaces that work.

Customer Testimonial

I am a customer at Babel's in Canton, MA. I have owned a house in Canton for 46 years, and we have always had wallpaper. This is the first time I am attempting to change to painted walls.

I met Wendy Clayton at Babel's; it was my lucky day. She has been an incredible source of information for me. She has been helping me choose colors for an entire house, and she is so talented.

I have brought tile samples and bedding samples to her to try to find a paint that would coordinate with my furniture, etc. Wendy is kind, super patient and extremely knowledgeable.

Wendy is honest and not opinionated. Even when I choose colors that are not the best choice, which I do often, she takes the time to explain the effect the color will make; because after meeting with Wendy a few times, she knows what I like and what I don’t like.

I am happy to be doing business with Babel's/National Lumber, especially when your customer service from a person like Wendy is top notch.

Thank you and have a wonderful day, Best, Milly M.

Advice for Homeowners

Tip for Homeowners: Establish a color palette that works for you. There are no bad colors, just bad color relationships. Consider all the elements in the big picture; tile, flooring, metals, fixtures, and lighting.

Where to save money: Look around your home for existing pieces that give you the opportunity to reupholster or repurpose. Use pieces that resonate and personalize a space, these also make for good Feng Shui.

Where to spend money: Good furniture, good fabric, and artwork. Find beautiful things that last.
