Welcome to Keenerosa Cottage, a home decor + lifestyle blog
I’m Christine and I’m so glad you stopped by my little blog! I launched this blog in 2016 as a creative outlet to share my adventures in decorating and owning my (first) cozy cottage home. I hope my journey inspires you!
Just a quick housekeeping item –

Now back to your regularly scheduled programming…
- I’m a twenty-something year old living in Charlotte, NC – I was born and raised here, went to college here (Go Niners) and LOVE it here!
- My big girl job is in marketing in the home industry.
- The blog is named after my Pa Jamie (Keener) – learn the story behind the name here. My love for all things home, vintage, antique, fixer upper (Before Fixer Upper was a thing), refurbished came from him. He had a true passion for these things, which sparked a passion in my mom, which she then passed down to me too. You can say it’s a family thing!
- Neutrals are my fav – to the extent that my home and my closet mostly consist of them.
- I’m the oldest of three girls. One of my sisters and my parents live in Charlotte too (plus my other sister is a short drive away) so we all get together pretty often.
- I love the beach, but I’m more of a mountain gal at heart. It’s in the blood – my mom grew up in a small NC mountain town and I spent summers up there as a kid.
- I recently went Paleo and love it! It’s not always easy but it keeps me healthy and happy.
- I love most genres of music, but 90’s alternative is my jam – think Hootie, Alanis, Dave. Anything that’s easy listening. And love live albums. Currently listening to this one on repeat all day every day. So good.
- Here’s Chris, my other half. We met in middle school, stayed friends and eventually started dating 10 years later. He’s my best friend, my rock and incredibly supportive of anything I do:
- I used to be a night owl, but have become more of a morning person in recent years. Usually, I’m up by 5 am, but am always first to bed at night!
- I absolutely love reading. Always have, always will – I think curling up with a good book is the most relaxing thing ever… Getting so immersed in a story and entirely other world that you lose all track of time and the real world just fades away.
- I adore old homes and my dream is to one day own a 1900’s Craftsman bungalow or farmhouse. The charm and character in these homes is amazing and how fun to own something so historically valuable?!
