Welcome! I'm JoAnne Lenart-Weary, your guide in the world of design and staging. Imagine a world where your living room is a place where you love to relax, your kitchen is a place where everyone wants to gather. 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 the years, 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 believe in the power of nurturing talent and sharing the wealth of knowledge earned from 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.
