This podcast inspires REAL moms with REAL homes and REAL budgets to transform their houses into homes they love. You will learn affordable and practical decorating tips, tricks, DIY tutorials, and more. I teach home owners how break through the barrier of what’s keeping them stuck in their home design, while also encouraging them to tell their home’s story from within by living a life of intention with the people they share their home with. My mission is to equip you with all the how-tos so you can decorate a home you love walking in to; a home you are confident in, that feels cozy and comfortable; a home that feels cohesive and put together.

Hey, I’m Dani - a former First Grade teacher turned home decorator.

    121 // ”My outdoor living space is an oasis and everyone thinks I decorated it myself!” A behind the scenes look at Deb’s outdoor living space that was transformed by Home Design 101

    121 // ”My outdoor living space is an oasis and everyone thinks I decorated it myself!” A behind the scenes look at Deb’s outdoor living space that was transformed by Home Design 101

    Deb had just finished building an outdoor living area when she joined Home Design 101.
     
    She wanted to learn how to decorate on her own and admittedly lacked confidence in her decision making. She would buy something she liked, bring it home, then realize it didn't quite work but she had NO IDEA WHY. Deb enjoyed being outside in her new outdoor living area, loved having guests over to share the space with, but she wanted it look and feel better - more cohesive - more her. 
     
    During the course of our ten weeks together, Deb had major breakthroughs! She learned to recognize her unique design style so she could make decisions (and future decisions) with confidence. She learned to create a vision board so she could see her product choices all together before spending a single dime. She learned how to create a color palette and which products it was important to spend more money on and which she could spend less on. And Deb walked away with an outdoor living space that is being called an oasis by those who visit!  
     
    If you want a home decorating breakthrough like Deb, where you learn the design basics so you can gain the skill, the tools and mostly the confidence to make design decisions on your own - Home Decorating 101 is open for registration. Today through Monday, November 28th when you register for Home Design 101 you will receive TWO BONUSES:
    * two 30 minute 1:1 coaching sessions with me
    * access to my Holiday Tablescape Workshop
    On Tuesday, November 29th the BONUSES GO AWAY and the PRICE GOES UP!
    Space is LIMITED in class and once it fills, the door closes for registration.

    120 // Confessions of a home decorator - my home used to be UGLY! 4 things I learned that changed my confidence in home decorating!

    If I tell you that not too long ago I used to have boogery colored walls, would you believe me? 
     
    Unlocking the secrets of home decorating didn't come inside a classroom with "Interior Designer" labeled on the front door, though it could. For most of us, we won't go back to school to become a certified Interior Designer. Most of us will do the very best we can with what we have. My very best, 12 years ago, was boogery green walls. I did the best that I could with what I knew THEN, but now I'm sharing my BEST with you! 
     
    Listen in on today's conversation where I share the 4 THINGS I DID ON MY OWN TO LEARN HOME DECORATING. I believe design is teachable - that you can LEARN it. Start here...with these four things to get you on the path to creating a home you love!

    118 // Are you drowning in stuff? 3 tips for decluttering so you can make space for living!

    Are you drowning in STUFF?
     
    Is there stuff everywhere you look? Are you tripping over things that you know should have a resting place in your home? Are you constantly moving one pile in order to make space for another pile - thinking that what you're doing is called organizing? 
    Friend, I hear you! It's overwhelming, frustrating and disappointing all wrapped into one. Do you want the good news? The good news is you CAN declutter, edit, remove, get rid of (whatever you want to call it) the excess so you can stop living for your stuff, and start living! 
     
    In today's episode, I share three ways you can SUCCESSFULLY start decluttering your space to make room for more living - more time to interact with your kids, more time to chat with your husband, more room to have your friends over. More life, less stuff. 
     
    If you want help creating a plan to remove the excess in your life, book a call: 
    Decorating S.O.S. because decorating CAN'T happen if we first don't address the stuff.

    116 // Does hosting for the holidays have you stressed? 3 things you can do NOW to prepare your home so you are guest ready

    Hey friend!
    With the holidays right around the corner, our calendars seem to explode with ALL the things to do in preparation of receiving guests into our homes:
    * clean the house
    * make the house festive
    * buy the groceries
    * make the meal
    * keep everyone happy
    And although we know that this date is coming the (almost) same date each year, we sometimes enter into it flustered, overwhelmed, tired and without enough grace left over for those tricky conversations that inevitably arise at the dinner table. 
    In today's episode I'm sharing with you three things you can do to prep for the holidays NOW that will alleviate the burden the week of the holiday.
    1. Get your house ready
    2. Get your table ready
    3. Get your heart ready
     
    * Join the one hour LIVE workshop on November 13th to learn how to create a holiday tablescape that WOWS! Reserve your spot here: https://bit.ly/figandfarmholidaytable

Building My Design Confidence with a Trusted Girlfriend

Dani- a first grade teacher turned stay-at-home mama, entrepreneur, and then home decorator, is so relatable and like a best friend giving you advice about how to find you style when it comes to your home, while giving yourself grace that it doesn’t need to look Pinterest- perfect. As someone who doesn’t know the first thing about home decorating and wants to build my confidence, I appreciate Dani’s teachings so much because she is all about getting the most bang for your design buck, and making your home the place where you most want to be. I can’t wait to learn more from her!

Healthy Happy Mom Project ,
