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…

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”.

My trip to Kohler

Last week I traveled with a group of designers to Kohler, Wisc., to learn about Kohler’s products, brands and technology. We were fortunate enough to stay in stunning and historic Riverbend (www.riverbendkohler.com). My experience there was nothing short of spectacular. As a tactically motivated designer, I place a lot of value in being able to…

My 15 minutes of fame (okay, a minute and 40 seconds, but still…)
