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…

RKID Lavender Favorites

Lavender is my favorite color of Spring. It’s such a welcomed sight to see the soft buds blooming after a long gray winter. Not to mention the fragrance is just as gorgeous! Today on the blog, I’m sharing RKID’s lavender favorites and a few items on this season’s wishlist. The lavender background of Schumacher x…

RKID Guide to Selecting the Perfect Sofa

When you’re in the market for a new sofa, all of the options available can make it challenging to figure out where to start. The “perfect” sofa can mean something different for just about everyone, and the process usually comes with many questions. After years of specifying sofas in all shapes and sizes, I am…

Feeling Green

Green is a color of beauty, new beginnings, health, and it’s my FAVORITE color! In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, the only day I’m Irish, today’s blog post lists my favorite things green… in no particular order! Ahhh, my front door. I’m so glad I went with Sherwin Williams Cilantro 6453. It’s been such a…

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…
