"After 15+ years of studying home design, my biggest strength is being able to 'analyze the creativeness:' to break it down into easy-to-learn strategies for anyone to be able to implement for themselves."
Most professional designers have a passion for building their own portfolio of published works. After co-owning a full-service interior design company for 5 years, this part never excited me, and along the way I realized my superpower as a decorating coach: I want to help support & empower you to be the star designer of your home!
Whether you are completely new to decorating or just need a second opinion, THE DECORATING COACH strategies will help as you design your current home, or style your home to sell & then plan your next one. Needs change at every life stage and your style may evolve over time, so learning about design will be useful throughout your life!

For anyone that has tried this buying-on-instinct method, you quickly discover the problem with this approach & become overwhelmed with the process, and even worse, unhappy with the results. Use the strategies of professional decorators to ensure an outcome that matches your vision.
No matter which camp you are in, we are happy to lend our experience to guide the way. THE DECORATING COACH provides design tips, shortcuts, advice & inspiration that revolve around decorating your own home or staging your home to sell.
Every home sale you will want to stage it to earn fast & high offers, and every new home you move into will have a new layout & need a new decorating plan to enhance the space (even with the same furniture). Learning the foundations of decorating will help you throughout your life.
You who want to decorate your home at your own pace, with a simple path to follow to ensure you get great style and avoid costly mistakes. (And the support of a coach who can give a second opinion if needed!)
You want to learn in a clear, straightforward way, without all of the unnecessary fancy-designer-speak. Nothing to feel intimidated by or that overcomplicates the process.
You love the styling & special touches found in model-homes. You want to avoid a plain cookie-cutter look, and want a home that flows from room to room with cohesive style & unexpected details. A blend of stylish sophistication with casual comfort.
Your style falls somewhat in the middle of the spectrum. You may think of words like transitional, industrial, contemporary, vintage-modern, urban, rustic-glam, French country, boho, farmhouse, traveler, electic, or somewhere in between.
If you want a full-service interior designer for project management services, specific subcontractor references, or CAD drawings.
If you want a quick e-design done for you with shopping list & renderings. While we offer recommendations & second opinions to support you, our purpose is to guide YOU be the star designer and get the satisfaction of designing a home you love.
If you want to learn design/art history and fancy design jargon. This is NOT a program to become a professional designer, or take the place of a design degree.
