You're lost in a maze of open web browser tabs hunting for that perfect piece for your home decor project when suddenly you fall down a flash-sale rabbit hole and are surrounded by 50 options of accent chairs in 30 shades of gray that you’re not even sure will fit in your space. It's well after midnight now, so you decide to flip a coin and go with exhibit 8 and hope for the best. Your head finally hits the pillow and you're wallowing in second guesses about your purchase. The only thing you're sure of in that moment, is that you're completely exhausted.
Do you want to know what the number one reason I believe people get overwhelmed with their home decor projects and often despite their best efforts, render patchy results riddled with pricey do-overs, time-consuming store returns, trial-and-error mistakes often resulting in a space or home that is (hopefully) better than when they began - but sometimes they wish they never had? I’ll give you a hint. (My design process was created to obliterate this problem).
The lack of knowledge, resulting in the lack of a plan.
It’s easy to see how this leads to haphazardly picking out random pieces for your home that you “think will work” or “hope it’s the right color” “because it was on sale”.
It’s easy to see how client’s end up contacting me at the end of their design-rope, throwing in the towel before they make another mistake or poor investment.
I LOVE helping my interior design clients find their way back from this discouraging place of unrest in their own homes! It’s my passion. So much so, that I’m no longer okay with limiting those I help to the number of hours in a day that dictate how many clients I can help at once.
So I’m turning to a beautiful gift that "connects" us all (ha!) - the world wide web - on a mission to reach YOU with professional design knowledge, and helping everyone that I can along the way feel enlightened, equipped, and empowered with the knowledge needed to confidently design and decorate their own homes with professional level excellence!
It is with great joy that I bring you this one-of-a-kind online interior design + decorating course teaching you the exact proven, step-by-step design process I use every day to create award winning and published interiors!

“I have learned so very much and found this to be invaluable. I did some of these principles, but learned the importance of better planning and the importance of the final accessory touches that pick up colors and contrasts from the other items. This is what has been lacking in my decorating. Absolutely worth the course! I play to review different segments over and over.”Pauletta B
“The class has been really good and informative. I have enjoyed learning rules of how to decorate, instead of trial and error. When asking questions in the private group, they usually respond within a day or two. It has been so nice to take the class and work at your own pace! I have four children ranging from 13 years- 10 months, work, ball games and more, so it’s been nice to not have to have the assignment s in at a certain time, because some weeks are busier then others! I am enjoying my results - the biggest thing I've learned is that, measurements matter!”Alaina J
“"Kathryn, has a delicate ability to make you feel like you've known her for a long time. You're immediately comfortable with her, and that is so important because designing your home is such an intimate setting. We are so grateful for the time and care that Kathryn undoubtedly put into our home. She did an amazing job, and her guidance led us right into our kitchen being featured in At Home Arkansas magazine! Her beautiful and kind heart couples so well with her efficacy and expertise. We are using her again now for our upstairs remodel!"”Parker W
“"Kathryn is super talented and professional. She has a fun loving personality and the energy that goes with that and it shows in everything she does. She was able to give us a good layout for four rooms in our house and gave us multiple options for each item to choose from at varying price ranges and at the proper dimensions to go with the size of our home. Thus far, we have bought a new dining room table with accompanying chairs, rug for dining room and an entry way table based on her plan. We have recently purchased two slipcover, swivel chairs for our living room to go with our existing couch. With the plan she prepared for us we are able to purchase the furniture and or fixtures we need as we go and have the paint colors on hand for when we decide to paint the rooms."”Sydney P
“"Kathryn was such a delight to work with! We searched for a professional (we had no idea what to expect as this was our first time) to help us obtain the look and feel we wanted as well as stay within budget. Kathryn was the first we contacted and after some preliminary paperwork/questionnaire and our initial complementary consultation, we knew we had made the right choice. Kathryn's DIY Package made the process so fun and simple and helps make the client feel less overwhelmed about their project. Kathryn put everything together in a beautiful visual presentation for us and we are free to implement at our own pace. We will hire her again for future homes and cannot recommend her enough!"”Norisa V.
“"Kathryn LeMaster is an extremely talented designer who is very easy to work with. She has an open mind and wonderful and creative ideas. Kathryn really wants the design to reflect you and does a great job of figuring out what that is. As far as the business side, she does great research, keeps in close contact and always does what she says she is going to do. I would recommend her for any job and will be using her again in the future. Her work is wonderful! She has done a kitchen redesign for me which includes fabrics, rugs, art, decor, furniture, sink, cabinetry finish and hardware, lighting and backsplash."”Lynette B.
