Do you truly love where you live?

The majority of US homeowners (renters too!) would love to redecorate at least one room in their home. All too often, time, money and a lack of confidence stop them from creating spaces that reflect who they are and support how they live.

In the Room Makeover Planner workbook, Deanne Marie demystifies the design process for every DIY home decorator. Applying her signature “POPS” solution, the Room Makeover Planner walks you through any room design step-by-step from assessing the space you have, to envisioning your ideal space. And, your budget and time constraints are woven seamlessly into your perfect design plan.

When you complete the Room Makeover Planner, you will have a prioritized, detailed action plan; a “mood board” to make shopping for your new room a breeze; a complete shopping list; and a schedule to complete your room makeover.

But more than that, you’ll have the confidence to make design decisions, and the pride that comes from creating a space that reflects who you are and supports how you live.
