Marsala – Pantone Color of the Year 2015

Pantone just released its color of the year for 2015, Marsala.  They describe it as a “naturally robust and earthy wine red, Marsala enriches our minds, bodies and souls.”  I’m not sure about that but I enjoy the color and will be adding this to a few RGI designs this year.   Renée

Seas The Day, A Useppa Island Retreat

Renée Gaddis Interiors recently had the pleasure of designing a complete renovation of a lovely cottage on Useppa Island, one of the top true 25 island retreats in the world. Though only one mile long and a third of a mile wide, the island hosts timeless cottages, exquisite creatures and inimitable landscape.  You must see first-hand how rich in beauty the island really is. With features you won’t find anywhere else, this is truly a hidden paradise.  Check out the photos below of this wonderful home.

Diane von Furstenberg Releases Collection of Fabrics for Kravet

Diane von Furstenberg is bringing her legendary sense of print and color, as well as her confidence and boldness in mixing unexpected patterns and scales, to an exclusive collection of fabrics for Kravet.


“Design your life! Love, Diane”

Von Furstenberg’s first fabric collection for Kravet is the perfect way to bring high fashion home. Incorporating the iconic designer’s signature bold animal prints, such as Spotted Cat and Funk Zebra, the collection has a strong foundation in black and white with pops of color. Geometric and abstract prints are also featured, for an eclectic blend designed to be mixed and matched. Color palettes range from berry and orange jewel tones inspired by the sunsets in Rajasthan, to azure blues that recall the Caribbean sea, and desert-inspired neutrals in sand and stone.

The collection also includes custom designed trimmings to accent the fabrics with an exotic edge true to von Furstenberg’s renowned aesthetic.

Beauty on the Gulf

This recent Renée Gaddis Interiors project showcases a complete remodel to match the client’s clean contemporary styling.  Who would have known how beautiful grey and mid-night blue would look complementing the water and sand of the Gulf of Mexico.

Say Hello to the Curved TV

Just as you finally designed your home with that state-of-the-art television out comes the “curved” TV.  This year they are all the buzz at the consumer electronics show and without a doubt will start showing up in some RGI designs very soon.


So what is a curved TV?  Essentially it is a gently curved flat screen TV display featuring equal distance from all parts of the screen to viewer lines of site.  Wherever you may be sitting, there’s no distortion.


In my field a TV is not just an electronic device, but also an essential piece of furniture that can drastically change the look of a home.  Soon our design team will be working away on renderings that capture this form function creating some exciting interiors in viewing areas this year.

The Metallic Renaissance

In my field, I often come across outfitted rooms that appear to be missing that one single thing that defines the space.  Metallic colors can take that room from just so-so to amazing but the question remains, how do I use it?

Traditionalists say you should not mix your metals; however, with today’s design trends, mixing old with new is in vogue and the accent of choice is gold.  Yes, gold is back in a big way, and with the right lighting, you can create rooms that shine with quality that is hard to do accomplish with traditional finishes.

Below are some examples of inspirational designs I have come across recently that fit the trend.
