"I look at decorating and designing my rooms differently because of Designer in a Binder. It’s manageable and fun now. It’s no longer overwhelming. I have a plan now and that in and of itself is worth its weight in gold!" 


"As someone who never spends money on anything, this binder is truly a bargain. You learn so much and then you have a place to keep everything organized. Then there’s the Facebook group. The Kaleidoscope Living owner pops in and comments—definitely feels like a seal of approval and I love it!"

"Designer in a Binder has really helped me plan my purchases and it has demystified what goes with what. And I found out having a nice home doesn’t have to cost a fortune or be done by a professional designer to be awesome… This has turned out to be one of the best purchases I have ever made."
