One Room Challenge Week 3: Bold Serene Bedroom

One Room Challenge Week 3: Bold Serene Bedroom | Kelly Rogers Interiors | Interiors for Families

Happy week three! I am fresh off a long weekend at High Point market. Well, fresh may be overstating it a bit. I am tired, physically exhausted, and mentally drained. And I had to hit the ground running with a client meeting first thing yesterday morning, despite getting home after midnight on Monday. So let’s…

This is the second installment in my Junior League of Boston 2017 Designer Show House ‘week of gratitude,’ where I’m blogging about the partners, sponsors, and donors who were so generous with their talents and/or products.

Before & After: Project Foxhollow Reveal!

Before & After: Project Foxhollow Reveal | Kelly Rogers Interiors | Interiors for Families

Today I am sharing a *surprise* reveal of a project we completed earlier this year, and recently photographed. In many ways, this was not our ‘typical’ client – no children, no dogs, just a husband, wife and their bashful cat living together quite happily in a 70s-era colonial in Sudbury, Massachusetts. They found us, as…

While at The Martin Group at the Boston Design Center last week, I discovered a wallpaper manufacturer I wasn’t familiar with – Flat Vernacular.

Powder Room Design

Today, I write not with advice or observations, but with a request for assistance. Don’t worry – it’s a fun one :). Our new house has a teeny-tiny powder room on the first floor. I want to have some fun with it, but my fun is somewhat limited by the lack of space. My biggest…

10 Fun Ways To Display Kid Art In Your Home

Mud Room Kid Art

When you have children ‘of a certain age,’ there is nothing more precious or meaningful than the copious works of art they produce in school projects, at-home activities, birthday parties, etc.  My little man is only 9 1/2 months old and is not yet wielding the crayon and marker, but I have to say I’m…

Color For Dummies


I have to admit – when it comes to color, I am a bit of a dummy myself. After all, I am but a student of design, with my required color theory class still ahead of me (this summer – can’t wait!). I’ve certainly been guilty of timidity when it comes to using color, and…

Decorating with Maps

Close-up Map of Newton, MA - Label

For me, there’s nothing quite like an old map. It’s a window into the past, to the way we once lived. Everything about it is from a specific moment in time – the printing technique, typefaces, atlas creases, coloring, and of course the geographic features of the map itself. I have three antique maps (two…

Quinlan’s Yellow Submarine Nursery

Beatles Figurines Vignette

In a recent post (Oh Baby: 7 Steps to Decorating a Unique Nursery), I promised to post pictures of my son’s room. The theme we chose was “Yellow Submarine” – mom is a big Beatles fan. I featured our glider, the Dutailier Cadenza with midnight blue leather upholstery, in a previous post as well, so…
