Meet Your Decorator - Kate Ruppe

Meet Kate Ruppe – Principal Designer at Genesis Design/Decorating Den Interiors. Kate’s love for all aspects of art, color, and design is what initially led her to pursue an interior design degree from Madison Area Technical College. Kate went on to work in the paint industry for several years, where she gained a wealth of knowledge in paint and stain matching, as well as color selection. This experience, combined with additional design training she learned while working in the flooring and tile industry, gave her the confidence she needed to launch her own design studio. In 2018, Kate received a First Place Award in the Parade of Homes for South Central Wisconsin.

When the opportunity arose to work as the Principal Designer at Genesis Design, Kate jumped at the chance. Having always desired to work with clientele in the Madison area, she now has the ability to expand her skill set into new construction, and residential/commercial remodels.

“I truly love taking care of my clients,” she says. “My focus is to take the time needed to provide them with the most perfect products and resources, so they can feel comfortable in their ‘safe haven’ – their home!”
