Her little blog turned into a big deal.
Interior designer René Zieg started her blog, Cottage and Vine, in 2009. It started out simple — it was a way for her to document and share the projects she completed in her 1930s cottage. It wasn’t long, though, before her little blog took off. She found herself with quite a following and before too long, she was designing homes and projects for her readers.
These days, René’s blog is a daily stop for thousands of readers. She’s a well-known resource for anyone looking for his or her daily dose of home and garden inspiration. From time to time, she mixes things up, adding in posts about her other passions, food and fashion.
René thinks the holidays are a time for your décor to shine. She loves the smell of freshly baked goodies, greenery and pretty things that sparkle. Her favorite thing about the season, though, is cuddling up with her husband and two teenage sons.
