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…

It's in the Details…

One of the best parts of my job is creating—and maximizing—the fine details in every space I design. A room is not truly beautiful—or truly finished—until together we’ve captured just the right amount of detailing for the space. What can I say, I’m a detail-oriented gal…well, when designing, anyway. My husband might tell a different…

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…

How to Choose The Perfect Area Rug

If you’ve ever seen a perfectly styled room, you probably noticed that the area rug was used to tie the room together. Because they come in all shapes, sizes, colors, and designs, it can be overwhelming to decide what area rug is perfect for the room you are trying to decorate. Here is a short…

Brightening Your Space

Brightening up your space isn’t just for visual appeal. As you evaluate your New Year’s resolutions, we’re looking forward to longer days coming. Brightening your space will help maximize the light you get every day, no matter how much daylight you have. Having a bright space not only looks better, but it can help you…

How to Decide if You Should Remodel or Move

After living in a home for several years, it can be easy to discover things you may not be crazy about. While some things can be a quick fix, there may be major changes that make you wonder if it is worth the investment. At this point, you’re probably asking yourself if you should remodel…

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

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…
