…to roll up your sleeves, take a good look at your world, and join us in a design revolution! RSVPstyle.com was created to make inspired, sophisticated home design and décor accessible to anyone with a desire to learn.
Hosted by Cathy Lee, RSVPstyle’s fun-loving design diva, the website centers on the dual cores of learning and sharing. Free registration enables RSVPstyle.com members to view video tips from Cathy and home industry experts, read articles and Q&As, keep up with RSVPstyle news and events and follow Cathy’s blog.
The website is a must for beginning enthusiasts, talented amateurs with more to learn and much to share, and homeowners seeking efficient communication on the same wavelength as their contractors, architects, interior decorators and sales and tradespeople.
The RSVPstyle philosophy: whether a design or decorating project takes a Saturday afternoon or two months, whether it costs $50 or $150,000, anyone willing to develop their eye for design can achieve a beautiful space.
RSVPstyle.com is based in Honolulu, a cosmopolitan crossroads of island and urban, East and West. Hawaii’s blend of influences from all over the world is a continuing inspiration for Cathy and her team of experts. RSVPstyle’s ongoing Invitation to Design workshops, featuring Cathy and local professionals, draw sell-out crowds at venues including the Hilton Hawaiian Village and the Hawaii Convention Center. Invitations from Macy’s, Crystal Cruises, the Navy Exchange at Pearl Harbor and others have led to mini-workshops at those venues.
Established in late 2006, RSVPstyle launched the first of its sell-out Invitation to Design and Learn to Decorate with Style workshops a few months later. Held at venues including the Hilton Hawaiian Village and the Hawaii Convention Center, the popular workshops have drawn invitations to stage smaller events at Macy’s, the Navy Exchange at Pearl Harbor, aboard a Crystal Cruise ship and soon, Lowe’s.
Interactive and filled with style articles and video tips, www.rsvpstyle.com was launched in July 2007. RSVPstyle’s line of learning products includes the Deluxe Style Kit—an all-in-one crash course for the beginning design/décor enthusiast, with a 3½-hour Invitation to Design DVD series, full-color workbook, organizer, style supplies and sturdy shoulder tote—as well as RSVPstyle’s $30,000 Style My Room Makeover DVD. The Learn to Decorate with Style Starter Set features the three-disc DVD series and Training Guide and is available at Borders, Barnes & Noble, Sam’s Club and Costco stores in Hawaii.
In May 2010 the company launched CathysMarketplace.com, an online marketplace combining quality new and gently used home items with weekly video tips featuring Cathy’s tips on using those items in stylish décor. With demand running high for a real-world version, the Cathy's Marketplace retail showroom was opened a year later. The 41,000-square-foot space at 1110 University Ave. in Honolulu's Moiliili district combines high-end new and consigned home furnishings and accents in designer-created vignettes for elegant, eclectic effect. To keep up with demand for consignment, the company followed by opening an even larger warehouse space at 420 Keawe St. in Kakaako. The Cathy's Marketplace warehouse is open for viewing and purchase of quality overstock furniture, accents and art every Wednesday.
The company's latest venture is Creations with Cathy Lee, a line of luxury bedding at department store prices. Creations is currently in development and is being designed by Cathy.
Co-founders Cathy Lee and Lissa Rodrigues are sisters-in-law and the creative and strategic forces behind RSVPstyle.com. They bring a combined 30-plus years of experience in home design and décor, entrepreneurship and information technology to their dream venture. Completing the management trio is Kara Wagner, RSVPstyle’s longtime business manager, who accepted a vice presidency with the company in 2010. The principals are supported by an eclectic and opinionated team of specialists in media production, editing, web design and the home design and decorating industry.
