Renee has always had interest in Interior Design and has personally designed numerous homes, cabins and commercial buildings between California & Montana. She loves the mountains and the esthetic of Montana interior design -the use of natural elements and fibers to blend with nature!
What drives Renee is learning the client’s personalities and needs and bringing that out in a home to reflect the family that will be living in it.
