An Australia native, Renee grew up in Mandurah, a small, relaxed coastal town. Like so many Australians, she left home to travel the world, visiting Bali, London, Paris, Italy, Ireland and beyond. Inspired by the unique beauty and character of each location, she was particularly taken by the different architectural and design aesthetics. Her travels nurtured the creativity already in her genes. Taught to draw by her grandfather, an artist, and motivated by her mother, who was always sewing something new for the house, it is no wonder that Renee carved herself a creative career path.
Marrying a US service man that she met while travelling, Renee has moved 8 times in the past 16 years! Each new home was an opportunity to remodel and decorate from the ground up, making each house a home for her growing family. While raising her children, she ran a successful home business creating and selling handmade stationery. She later owned a home decor, gift and stationery boutique, but her love for interior design led her to focus on decor full-time.
After spending years coming to the rescue of friends who approached her with their decorating dilemmas, she completed an Interior Design course at the New York Institute of Art & Design. Passionate about transforming spaces that perfectly reflect homeowners’ personal styles and personalities, Renee launched Renee Yee Interiors in 2012.
In her free time, Renee can be found traveling, hunting for vintage treasures and enjoying delicious food. She enjoys sharing these experiences with her husband and three children.
