Hi, I'm JoAnne Lenart-Weary and this is my brainchild. For the past 40+ years, I have built a career creating beautiful homes and teaching others how to do the same.  My professional classes in Staging, Decorating and Color are taught around the country. I have appeared on HGTV, ABC-TV and written for just about every professional magazine out there.  I want to share my expertise with you. Not fluffy stuff but real practical tips, tricks, hacks and systems used by the professionals to help you create the home you always wanted...on your budget. Our live and online education is geared to everything home related, with new content and classes from a variety of talented experts added often. 

No matter how talented you are, there may be times you heed the wisdom, talent and experience of a professional. No, not one of those "full-of-themselves" people, but down to earth talented Decorators, Designers, and Stagers with lots of experience. They can pat you on the back and validate you are on the right track, provide you with easy tips, find resources only available to the trade or help you with a job from bottom to top. If you need help, let us know and we can refer you to someone. 

Whether you want to
