Do you love interior decorating but need some advice or
want to learn how to do it yourself? You are in the right place!

Hi, I'm JoAnne Lenart-Weary, a Color, Decorating, & Staging Expert, lover of transforming spaces and teaching others how to do the same. With over 40 years of experience, I can help bring your decorating dreams to life. If you love Decorating, but need some're in the right place.

My philosophy is simple: great design is about how a room feels, not how much it costs. Good design doesn't have to be big bucks. Don't get me wrong, you have to spend money but the best rooms combine old, new, cherished, and filler pieces that are curated and collected to create the perfect feeling in your space.

Whether you want an expert to help you decorate the space you have, learn how to do it yourself, or take your decorating business to new levels, I'm here to help.

EDUCATED-Courses, Classes, & Content

With over 40 years in the design & staging industry, I have decorated thousands of rooms and taught just as many how to create beautiful rooms. I learned early it takes more than need a solid understanding of what is good design and design foundations. See those "rules" of design are the secret to a room filled with stuff to a room that rocks. Most Do It Yourself Decorators, think the room is all about the stuff, when in reality, it is how you curate, collect, and style what you have and purchase. In my education site, The Decorating Zone, you will find classes both complimentary and fee based. New classes will be added often.

MOTIVATED-Coaching & Mentoring for the Professional or Aspiring Decorator

When I started my business over 40 years, I had no business...being in business! But I survived in spite of myself. I read every business and marketing book I could find. I took every class, attended every conference, but the one thing I couldn't do was have a face to face talk with anyone who had been there before me. People wouldn't share, there was no such thing as coaching or mentoring. So every time I learned something new...I shared it with those who were at a lower level in experience. The word got around that I knew my stuff and soon I was speaking at industry events, writing for industry magazines, and mentoring others.

Whether you are already in business or considering turning your talents into a profitable business, schedule a complimentary success strategy session. This isn't a sales call, it's a real time conversation that's all about you.


About JoAnne

I'm JoAnne Lenart-Weary, your guide in the world of design and staging. Imagine a world where your living room is the relaxing place, your kitchen is the gathering place, and your bedroom is your refuge. That's the world I have been creating for over 40 years, in 39 states and 5 countries. Yes, you read that right – four fabulous decades of transforming houses into homes, rooms into retreats, and passions into profitable businesses. Over that time, you might have caught a glimpse of me sharing tips on HGTV or ABC, or perhaps you've read my articles in your favorite magazines. From the stages of national industry conferences to speaking at many DIY Decorating Seminars, appearances at regional home shows, and more, I've been there and done that.

Since 1999, I've also been the fairy godmother to hundreds of aspiring decorators, designers, and home stagers, teaching my systematic approach to design, sharing practical wisdom, building marketing and business plans to help them turn their talent into a business. I want to share that same information with you, the Home Decorator or Do It Yourselfer. I believe in the power of nurturing talent and sharing my wealth of knowledge earned over years of triumphs and yes, a few colorful mishaps. (ask me about the red toilet) I love to help those who love interior decorating get inspired and understand design foundations and beyond, so they love coming home or can apply this knowledge to a client project. My goal is to provide education, confidence, and inspiration by sharing my expertise and systematic approach to design.
