The Blog...

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…

RKID has a new look!

Friends, I’m so excited to announce my new website has launched! I love the look–it feels soooo Renae. I worked with the oh-so-talented Kim Kalina of Green Olive Design to create my new site…didn’t she do an amazing job? She totally captured the personal and professional feel I’m going for. Love it! I hope you…

How Quaint vintage shop in Shakopee

My friend Katherine and I took a break from work last week to devote a day to vintage and fall clothes shopping. Fun, right?! We discovered this adorable little shop in Shakopee called How Quaint. We had so much fun! I took a few pics of my favorite finds.   Mosaic glass vase. And hydrangeas.…

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…

Café Renae

Something I find very important amidst the chaos of running a business and taking care of my family is routine. It has been so helpful and crucial that I develop good (and delicious) habits each morning to start my day. Today I wanted to share with you my two go-to morning drinks. After trying so…

My “Why” Behind Interior Design

       This year marks 10 years of owning my own business. With all the wonderful memories, homes, and clients that date brings back, it’s really made me reflect on my “why” behind interior design. Why I wake up and love what I do every day, how I got here, and what will keep…

Putting Art in your Home

Let’s discuss art. Art is a tough one. The best way I know how to break it down for you is in four categories: collecting as you travel, local galleries, vintage pieces, botanicals, and lastly something I just consider as “getting creative”. The most important thing is that it reflects YOU! As you read this…

Earth Day 2020

It’s Earth Day! Even though field trips to clean the nearby creek for our kids and fresh flowers aren’t the first things on our mind this Earth Day, let’s take a few minutes and let them be because we are here to spread good in our minds and lives! Let’s be the group that takes…

Outdoor Living

(Jordan Powers Photography) It’s officially that time of year again! The time when we spruce up our outdoor living areas in preparation for what we hope to be a wonderful and social summer. This year that the last sentence takes on a whole new meaning. But let’s think about this one. This summer is either…

My Most Used, and Dare I Say Favorite Paint Colors for Any Season

After many years of designing, I have come to realize that one of the hardest parts for our clients is knowing and selecting the right paint color. Luckily, for me, after many years of doing it, I feel like it’s one of the easiest, so I am always overjoyed to offer that support! Project after…

Burn the Candles, Use the China

Burn the Candles, Use the China means… Open those boxes… look at what you have, and use what you have. It’s about honoring the old memories and making new ones. And for me, this all really took hold after we moved into our new home.  We needed to move during construction and so we boxed…

Wallpaper Trends

Welcome back wallpaper.  I have been by your side for years.  I have educated my clients on wanting wallpaper and the difference it can make in a room.  Many clients have PTSD of when they were first married, first home, and removing wallpaper from each room of their home.  It takes a bit of a…

2020 Las Vegas Market Recap

Wow! What a busy week I had in Vegas at the 2020 Las Vegas Market.  This was my first time at this market and it was so different than High Point. It had many different vendors and was a completely different layout. It was a market that I could easily get through [for my type of…
