The Blog...

My trip to the Big Apple for Blogfest 2012!

As some of you already know, I spent the week before last in the Big Apple at Blogfest 2012. Hosted by Kravet, this event was designed to bring those of us with an interior design blog to NYC to learn about what’s available in our industry and boost our social media skills. But really, the…

My Make-A-Wish project — the reveal!

You may remember a few weeks ago when I talked about preparing for my Make-A-Wish project. Little Olivia, diagnosed with lupus at the much-too-young age of 6, chose her Make-A-Wish wish to be a redecorated “Princess and the Frog” style bedroom. Smart girl…instead of going to Disney World one time, she brought Disney to her…

My Make-A-Wish project, part 1

Little did I know a day at Somerby golf course in Byron, Minn., would lead to one of the most fulfilling experiences of my life. A casual offer of design time at a Make-A-Wish silent auction event has one year later has landed me straight in the home of the world’s cutest little girl: Olivia.…

Inspiring local artist Cathy Bratter

First of all, happy March! I hope you all enjoyed Leap Day yesterday and either did something really special with your extra day, OR made it just another ordinary Wednesday. Both are perfectly acceptable in my book. For a few months now, I’ve been wanting to share with you a local artist who has come…

My 3-Day Experience

What a thrill to be part of the Susan G. Komen 3-Day Walk this year! Sixty miles and several blisters and bruises later, and I feel like a changed woman. A huge thank you to my 3-1/2 amazing teammates (one had a bun in her oven!) for letting me join their team! The first day…

The Keller Summer

Oh goodness, it’s been quite a summer already, and it’s only barely August. While I normally like to keep these posts about design, I just can’t help but to write about a few of my summer high- (and low-!) lights. None of it is exactly newsworthy, but it’s all certainly blog-worthy. Keller Issue #1 For…

Hickory Chair University

Last May, my associate Katherine and I became esteemed graduates of Hickory Chair University. What is Hickory Chair University, you ask? For starters, it’s an inventive, inspiring three-day workshop hosted by the furniture company Hickory Chair in—you guessed it!—Hickory, N. C. Rather than spend their advertising/marketing budget on ads and mailings directed at people who…

Happy Anniversary, RKID!

It’s hard to believe, but one year ago this month I launched Renae Keller Interior Design, Inc. It’s amazing how quickly that year flew by. As any proud parent of a 1-year-old would, I’ve been reflecting on RKID’s first year of life and the things I’ve learned—about interior design, the business world and myself—that made…

Lights, camera, action!

Oh my goodness, have I got a story to tell! Last month, Magnetic Productions, a local television production company that produces shows on cable networks like HGTV, DIY and Travel Channel, put out a call to interior designers looking for the host of HGTV’s next design show. I decided “What the heck, why not?” and…

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…

High Point Market – Part 1

High Point Market 2019 did not let us down! It brought some great options to our playing deck that we can use ASAP. To start this awesome series recapping our visit, I want to talk about two very special vendors: Lauren Leiss for Woodbridge Furniture and Taylor King Upholstery and Generations Lighting. Lauren Leiss for…

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.…

Hopefully this list not only kick starts your…
