What does a Decorating Coach do?
That’s a great question that I get asked! A decorating coach listens to her client’s needs and wants. She helps her clients realize their decorating style(s) and makes suggestions and recommendations based on her client’s desires, possibly in these areas:
-furniture arrangement & placement
-re-use of furniture from other rooms
-paint color suggestions
-picture hanging tips
The main goal of a decorating coach is to inspire her clients to create a beautiful home that is relaxing and rejuvenating.
It’s very rewarding to consult with a client, see their home, give them the client questionnaire, anaylze the questionnaire, and present a room make-over plan to them. It really fills my bucket to truly listen to a client, design a plan for them, and help them carry the plan through.
Listen to how I coached these clients:
Megan is a gifted redesigner. Her natural ability to really listen to me enabled her to tap into my design style. Her ideas and recommended resources truly reflect my taste and things I love. Megan has a relaxed, fun, yet professional approach. Working with Megan is like sitting down with your best friend or sister to redesign your home. Megan is more than a redesigner. She inspires.

Megan was spectacular to work with in redesigning our screened-in porch. All of the rooms in our home are pretty well set but with 3 young kids I was lacking a place to call my own and feel at peace in. I had an idea of what I wanted to create but no idea of how to put it into action. Megan listened to my hopes, desires and needs for a place to entertain, play family games, and reflect our favorite place…the beach! She asked that I fill out a comprehensive questionnaire -asking me some pretty interesting questions in order to help me put my thoughts into a workable plan for the space. Through this questionnaire she learned more about my style, interests, and the reality of what I saw the room used for. She delivered to me a vast packet which included fabrics options for curtains, lighting options, furniture and outdoor rug samples, and 3 different price points. I had her list in hand as I visited fabric stores, furniture stores and stores where I purchased accessories. My family and friends have thoroughly enjoyed this repurposed living space this summer and I know we’ll create amazing memories in the years to come. It’s our favorite family spot for game night! Thank you Megan for your insights and inspiration to create a lovely space to call my own (and share when I desire!) It has stayed (so far) a no toy zone too! Cross your fingers!

Working with Megan is one of the best things I have ever done for my home and for my peace of mind. There were several decorating projects that I had been putting off. Megan came in and listened to what I wanted to accomplish and then offered some excellent suggestions! She is so talented and I love her sense of style, color, and composition. Plus, she is action oriented…we accomplished so much in just a few hours. I cannot thank Megan enough for her help and ideas…it was really fun working with her. I look forward to the next project!
