Renae Keller, ASID, NCIDQ

Principal, Lead Designer & Chief Inspiration Officer

Having never met a hand-block printed linen she wasn’t best friends with, or a grass cloth paper that didn’t make her swoon, Renae believes great design has well-appointed interiors that are comfortable and welcoming, yet also pleasing and beautiful.  It’s in the details that Renae reflects her client’s story throughout their home that makes her a master at her craft - and each project so special.


Known for her candor, calming presence and infectious spirit, Renae strives to bring more ease, more joy and more wonder for all to enjoy, and she believes a well-designed home can do all that. 

Renae’s attentive, yet collaborative approach along with twenty-six years of design experience and vendor partnerships has her trusted by homeowners, builders, architects and craftspeople alike.


Renae passionately believes in honoring memories both new and old by encouraging her clients to use what they have and all the things that make them happy.  Sparking her motto,
Burn the candles, use the china…”

LuAnne Silvia, NCIDQ

Bachelor of Science in Interior Design

Interior Designer, Project Manager & Operations Ninja

From a childhood fascination for rearranging furniture to an established career as a designer, LuAnne has always loved the thrill of problem-solving through purposeful design. She never sees obstacles as problems, only situations that can be worked through.  LuAnne is incredibly curious and genuinely interested in how people occupy a space and is a wizard at thinking through construction details and creating functional spaces.


Outside the studio, you’ll most likely find LuAnne outdoors hiking, rollerblading or capturing memories of her travels with family through photography.  She credits her love of interior design to never wanting to be inside.  So if she finds her way indoors, it has to be a pleasant place to be!

Kari Schultz

Tonya Bushey

Design Curator & Captain of All Things

Tonya can easily be described as the cog that keeps RKID running smoothly! Behind-the-scenes, you’ll likely find her placing orders, putting together proposals, and assisting in any way to keep the overall client experience pleasant and stress-free. Tonya’s passion for making homes more beautiful comes from her deep appreciation for the importance of family, friends, faith, food…and wine! But most importantly, quality time spent together.

Kind Words from Our Clients...

"I loved Renae the moment I met her. She has an innate ability to see my vision and work with it.... as she develops the overall vision of the project. She has so many connections, there is nothing she cannot do or have done for you. On a personal note, she is not only a gifted designer, she is now a friend. She is delightful to work with, down to earth and very funny. I looked forward to every single meeting. She is the real deal. I give her the highest recommendation."

- Lisa Seiling

"Renae was friendly, warm, attentive and always listened to and incorporated our thoughts & ideas into the areas she worked on. More than any other space(s) in our home, RKID's spaces were a true collaboration between client and designer. Renae was definitely one of our favorite designers to work with among the 20+ designers who helped complete our home and we would highly recommend her to anyone tackling a home design project."

- Susan Lacek

"Working with Renae and the team at RKID has been an amazing experience. RKID was there for us from the start well through the finish line of our significant 1920s Lynnhurst house remodel. RKID could see and embrace our vision, enhancing form and function while paying homage to the classic features of our historic home. RKID created thoughtful and timeless updates while focusing on the specific needs of our young family, resulting in a true sense of home for us. We would work with the RKID team again and in fact, we continue to work with them on the finishing touches and are making plans for phase 2 in the near future. We can't recommend the RKID team more highly!"
