If you answered yes, The Design Essentials course can help.
The course is divided into five modules with lessons that take you from figuring out your style and making a plan, to sourcing the right furniture and finishings, to decorating and finishing your home so that it’s meaningful, functional and comfortable. You’ll get the essentials that you need without the many “design rules”, trends or unnecessary details that can get in the way of making decisions and getting projects finished.
32 essential lessons
that break down what you need to know into small, digestible bits of information. I make the process of design and decorating simple so you’ll actually do it instead of just dreaming about it! Each lesson gives you the essentials you need to know plus photo inspiration and sources or tools to make it even easier for you to create the home you’ve been wanting.
that will help you not only decorate your home but help you do it sustainably and create a naturally healthy home as well. I give you information on purchasing eco-friendly options, make easy switches in your home to limit the toxins inside and how to create a home that will support you and your family. I believe a beautiful home is a healthy one too!
Coaching & community support
