I might be particularly biased toward today’s designer spotlight because I have a serious love for all things personalized! Clairebella is a line of stylish personalized decor and accessories that add flair to everyday items like water bottles, cutting boards, clipboards and more. The adorable patterns make the pieces in this line stand out from the rest and allow you to create items unique to your little one. There are also great designs for Moms too! The Monogram Cell Phone Case, which I actually have myself, is so super cute and guaranteed to make your phone positively unique! The collection from Clairebella, found on RosenberryRooms.com, is also perfect for gift-giving. Let your gift stand out with the personal touch that Clairebella is known for! And now, it is my pleasure to introduce Kathy Denness, the creator of Clairebella!
Enjoy and be stylish!
How would you define Clairebella’s style philosophy?
Fresh, bold designs that add a bit of style to everyday objects.
What inspired you to become a designer and start a business?
I think I have always been both an artist and entrepreneur at heart. I absolutely love creating products and having the flexibilty of owning my own business while raising my kids was a huge factor for me.
Why did you choose to design and make personalized children’s gifts and accessories?
My business has evolved over the years. Initially we designed baby blankets and moses baskets. I really wanted to utilize my own designs in my products and add personalization. When we started our current line of personalized products in 2009, it really took off….so much so, that personalized products are all we do now!
What is your favorite part of your daily work when you reflect on the day, what is most rewarding?
I love making designs that make people happy, but more importantly, I love being able to use my company to help others. We work with Foster Care to Success, which provides college funds for aged-out foster kids. We have a Clairebella scholarship that was awarded this year and we will continue to fund (and hopefully grow) our scholarship/s each year!
If you had to pick a favorite piece from your collection on RosenberryRooms.com, what would it be?
What sets Clairebella apart from other designers in your industry?
We are a small company with staff from various backgrounds, but we all have families. We are all working parents and in touch with the struggles that families face today. When developing products, we are design driven, but our products have to make sense in today’s economy while also supporting jobs here in our country.
Do you have any news that you would like to share, perhaps about upcoming designs or introductions to your line?
We are fairly hush-hush about any upcoming news until we launch, but we are always looking for products that families and moms will love (while adding style to their lives)!
