About Cheri

Feather Your Nest

Design is what I do. I love to talk with folks in their home, hear how they use the home and help find style that marries their lifestyle with the environment they live in.

Working Together


Welcome to Feather Your Nest, a full service boutique design and real estate staging company. For over 20 years I’ve been helping clients design, transform and re-invent their homes. I still get chills every time I walk into a space and envision what it could be. Houses speak to me. I am passionate about what I do because I know how much people’s lives can be improved by beautiful, functional spaces. Home is our sanctuary, our nest. I firmly believe that when our home looks good, we feel better too.

I have a great team of contractors, artisans, and  manufacturers that help make the design magic a reality. We love hearing your ideas and coming up with creative ways to make them come to life. I want you to love your space and want it to be a reflection of you.

In addition to our Interior Design and Redesign services we also offer Real Estate Staging services. We have a warehouse full of furniture ready to make your home or vacant property look like a model home.

I look forward to working with you.

Cheri Opelt Keckeis

Principle Designer

Design is what I do. I enjoy getting to know clients to understand how they use their home and help them find a style that marries their lifestyle with the environment they live in. Crisp Lines, classic sensibilities and chic palettes are the foundation of my style aesthetics. My signature style brings a fresh, modern approach to tradition. In my design interiors, neutral palettes are brought to life with chic patterns, texture and color. I favor a refined simplicity that allows for elegant and comfortable living with a sense of calm. The end result is polished and pretty, but without pretense.
