Highpoint Highlights – Part I "Three Hour [factory] Tour"

411 on High Point I had never been to this place designers have flocked to for decades, until 2 years ago.  I always asked myself, why would a designer want to go to a place like this?  In the time it takes me to finish this sentence, I will state three reasons: You can see, touch,…

Chinoiserie

This month I was re-introduced to a lovely design known as Chinoiserie. A classic decorative style that was first popular in the 18th century.  I picked out a fabulous wallcovering at the F.Schumacher showroom in International Market Square. The Chiang Mai Dragon comes in a variety of options, all rich in color and detail. Here…

Color of the Month

    Spring is here! As a designer I am inspired everyday by what surrounds me. That is why the Blush topped the list of May’s color of the month.       Walking into my office, I am greeted by beautiful flowers touched with a hints of blush.   If allergies are a problem,…

Color of the Month

The color of the month is “Citron”, one of the best colors to show off your Spring fever!  This color named after the citrus fruit, and rightfully so, is the perfect mix of yellow and green and can pop any space.  The beauty of this color is its intensity.   Here is a great combination…

My trip to Kohler

Last week I traveled with a group of designers to Kohler, Wisc., to learn about Kohler’s products, brands and technology. We were fortunate enough to stay in stunning and historic Riverbend (www.riverbendkohler.com). My experience there was nothing short of spectacular. As a tactically motivated designer, I place a lot of value in being able to…

My 15 minutes of fame (okay, a minute and 40 seconds, but still…)

If you follow me on social media (and you should!), you already know I was on WCCO last week sharing tips for holiday decorating and host/hostess gift-giving. I shared photos on social media but wanted to also share with you what the experience was like. Being a TV newbie, it was all incredibly fascinating. I…

Hello from up north!

I’m happy to say this week’s blog post comes to you from the beautiful lakes of Crosslake, Minnesota. Could we have asked for better lake weather? No, we could not…it’s simply perfect up here this week. It’s a Berge (my side of the family) getaway, so we six Kellers are joined by my brother, his…

Friends, I’m so excited to announce my new website has launched! I love the look–it feels soooo Renae.

I hope you…

How Quaint vintage shop in Shakopee

High Point Market – Part 2

DETAILS, DETAILS, DETAILS “Heavy on the details” is exactly what we saw throughout the 2019 Fall Highpoint Market. Details that stand out and make your pieces look as though they had been made for that exact purpose.  Details that make them unique and full of character. Details are the reason why I do what I…

Top 5 Paint Colors Fall 2019

#1 Question I get asked hands down… What is the latest paint colors that are popular? These change season to season of course, as are the latest trends in fashion.  And what is the best paint to use? Personally, I prefer Benjamin Moore paints.  Although, I have painters that swear by many other types of…

A Trip to the Farmers Market…

Saturday Morning – 7:00 AM.  Something about a farmers’ market makes me want to get up early (amazing, I know), grab all of the cash I can find (I never have cash), and a Starbucks and head over to see beauty in every direction.  Putting on my wide-brimmed hat I carry my Trader Joe’s reusable…

We Made It…finally!

I’m sure you are thinking that as an interior designer, building a home would be a breeze, right? I have to say, 80% of the choices were instant for me, but the other 20% was a struggle, and they seemed to vary over the finishes and placement of whatever I was struggling with vs. the…

Highlights of 2017

I love the holiday season, things seem to slow down and speed up all at the same time. After Thanksgiving it is hard to stop the process of reflection as we near the most sentimental part of this time of year, Christmas and New Years. Looking back on 2017 we have had some major milestones…

What is Transitional Style?

A question I get asked frequently from clients is “What is transitional style? I hear it used casually when talking about seemingly traditional interiors but they are also kind of contemporary”. That is exactly it! I will explain what transitional means to RKID and how it is used- and how you could be using it.…
