RKID's Why for Interior Design

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…

Picking Art For Your Home

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…

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…

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…

When selecting art for your home or office there a few considerations to keep in mind. Color, content, and texture are some of them but what about if your not even sure about what colors belong in the the space.
