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…

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

Serene Space

Highpoint Highlights – Part I "Three Hour [factory] Tour"

Chinoiserie
