Want model-home worthy style, but aren't sure where to begin?  We'll show you how to decorate like a pro.

DOES THIS SOUND LIKE YOU?

Are you tired of having a home that you don’t enjoy, that lacks style, that doesn’t relax or inspire you, or function with your life?

Do you cringe when friends or family show up unannounced, or worse, feel too embarrassed about how your home looks to invite them over & host get-togethers at all? 


Are you starting from scratch and completely overwhelmed with all of the design decisions that need to be made?



Have you tried DIY decorating but your home doesn’t feel or look like you thought it would & you don’t know how to fix it?


Or are you selling your home and need to style it to appeal to the most buyers? Are you not sure where to even start: what can stay the same, what to pack away, or what to quickly change to receive great offers?

IMAGINE...

What if decorating your home was easier, simpler & you knew you would be happy with the final outcome?

What if, instead of feeling overwhelmed by the many decisions to make, you could follow a convenient path & feel confident you were making the right purchasing selections? 

What if you felt the satisfaction of doing an amazing job, and were finally excited to entertain guests (and show them the transformation!)?


And if you are selling your home, what if you could create a style that would make buyers DREAM of living there (and excited to give you a great offer!), using mostly what you ALREADY own?

About THE DECORATING COACH


"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."


Many professional designers have a passion for building their own portfolio of published works. After co-owning a full-service interior decorating company for 5 years, this part never excited me as much as working with clients to create the initial design plan. Along the way I realized my superpower as a decorating coach: 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!

THE PROBLEM WE SOLVE

MISCONCEPTION

DECORATING SOUNDS SO EASY: JUST FIND SOME INSPIRATION PHOTOS, TAKE SOME MEASUREMENTS & GO SHOPPING.  WRONG.


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. 

DECORATING HELP

MAYBE YOU ARE COMPLETELY NEW TO DECORATING, OR MAYBE YOU JUST WANT A SECOND OPINION TO HELP YOU PUT THE PIECES TOGETHER.  

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.

IS THIS FOR ME?

YOU WILL FEEL RIGHT AT HOME HERE IF...

  • 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!)

  • Or you are Selling your home and want to Stage it to have the style of a model home & appeal to the most buyers, therefore getting better offers, faster.
  • 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.

YOU MIGHT WANT TO LOOK ELSEWHERE...

  • 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 business program to become a professional designer, or take the place of a design degree.

  • If you want construction tips, help with extensive kitchen and bath remodels, tearing down structural components, house flipping advice etc.  These topics are beyond the scope of this website.
  • If you like the traditional aesthetic.  If formal, glossy stained furniture with delicate details, ornate layered drapery and lots of accessories to cover every surface is what speaks your style language, you will probably want to look elsewhere for advice.
