Redstone-3Redstone Interiors, based in Crosslake, Minnesota has built a special niche of creating timeless vacation homes in Minnesota and throughout North America. The following is an interview with Carlene Anderson, president and founder of Redstone Interiors.

Q: Tell me about Redstone Interiors.

A: Our main goal at Redstone Interiors is to exceed client expectations by creating vacation dream homes from concept to completion. Our clients want more than just a second home; they want a getaway retreat that becomes their sanctuary. Over the past 15 years we have become known as the timeless vacation home experts, assisting throughout the entire process – from ground-breaking to the lighting of candles on move-in day.

Q: I’m intrigued by the word “timeless.” What do you mean in this context?

A: Lake homes often stay in the same family for many generations. Lifelong memories are created and precious times are shared. We create warm and inviting vacation homes where family and traditions come together.

Q: How do you begin when first working with clients?

A: We start by getting to know each of our clients to find out how they want to live in their home. We learn about their backgrounds and heritage. How do they spend their time? How often and in what fashion do they entertain? Do they have pets, grandchildren, or a multitude of overnight guests? Most of our clients know how they want to feel in their homes, but are unsure as to how to arrive to that point. Our expertise is turning our clients’ dreams into an incredible reality, creating an evironment beyond what they ever envision.

Q: What do you think sets your team apart?

A: Interior Design demands research, analytical skills, and a command of technology as well as creativity. Our team of experts at Redstone works together to achieve the extraordinary. Over the years we have built wonderful direct manufacturer relationships to provide our clientele with fabulous custom furniture, lighting, flooring, bath vanities, window treatments, bedding and upholstery. Our unparalleled service, exquisite taste, unmatched quality, and attention to detail truly creates an experience that is over the top.


Ambiance lighting (cove illumination, dimming chandeliers & wall scones, etc.) is a fabulous way to capture the feeling of the room. Redstone places a great deal of importance on the home’s lighting design, from the detailed electrical layouts to the final fixture selection. Proper illumination is a key element in a professionally designed home.


In a lake home it is essential to have a nice flow within the entertaining spaces that can accommodate numerous guests while also feeling intimate when enjoyed by just a few.
