Designer for a Day

Design. On your time.

You want to DIY

(And avoid a DUD)

Tired of making the wrong choices?

You’ve watched way more hours of HGTV than you care to share.  You’ve pinned pictures and searched every interior design hashtag on Instagram looking for inspiration to create the look you want in your home.   You think you know what you’re doing.  
BUT…when you bring everything home it doesn’t turn out quite the way you imagined, leaving you filled with disappointment.  
Hello frustration.  Sound familiar?
Nestorations-Designer for a Day interior design services

What if you could...

Spend a whole day with an interior designer to solve your home design problems?  Imagine having exclusive access to a designer without the commitment or investment of Full-Service interior design.  How amazing would it be to have a designer shop right along with you while you update your home?


Introducing...Designer for a Day

A quick, easy and accessible interior design solution for DIYers.  My “choose your own adventure” option that gives you valuable time with me so we can work together to solve your design problems and update your home.  
Client-led, designer supported.

Action.  That’s the key with Designer for a Day.

This is the perfect option for you if you’re a DIYer who wants fast results and doesn’t mind rolling your sleeves up a bit in the process.  You decide what space you want to work on or what design problems you want to solve and I’ll spend 6 hours of actionable time with you to help.  We can design and shop together to complete one whole room or update parts of several spaces.  You don’t have to worry about wasting time and money on design mistakes because I’ll be there right by your side to guide you.  At the end of our time together, I’ll send you a shopping list and directions to put everything together.  The best part of my Designer for a Day service is that you get to choose what you want to do.

“I liked my home, but it really needed an update.  I wanted a partner who listened, was knowledgeable, and could help me make decisions.  Once we met, I didn’t have any hesitations about working together. Your suggestions are not only thoughtful but spot on.  And you could take what I said and turn it into a good plan for my home. The total transformation is working wonderfully and I get many great compliments about my new decor.  You’re always cheery and fun to be around but most importantly-you know what you’re doing.  I’m very thankful that we started working together and for your creativity and sincere desire to help people enjoy their homes.”

Frequently Asked Questions

No worries!  Working with a designer shouldn’t be intimidating and certainly won’t be with me.  I’m east coast organized and west coast laid back.  We’ll tackle this journey together and I’ll be here to guide you through the whole process.

After your free 20 minute discovery call, we’ll schedule an in-person design consultation to talk about your home and decide on what areas you’d like to work on.  I’ll prepare for our working session and then we’ll spend 6 hours together taking action on your home.  After our time together, I’ll send you any directions and shopping lists that you’ll need to finish your space.  

I get it-interior design is an investment in your home.  But, it’s an investment with many benefits.  A designer saves you time by sharing her knowledge and expertise.  A designer saves you money by helping you avoid costly mistakes.  Designers help solve your home frustrations by finding solutions that work for you.  Designers also have access to countless resources to make your home more functional and beautiful.  

A well-designed home has many emotional benefits such as bringing you joy coming home each day, as well as a sense of pride, peace and comfort.  Not to mention, good design increases the value of your home making it worth more and easier to sell in the future. 

Interior design is a personal business.  Other than your family, your home is one of the most personal parts of your life.  It’s where you create memories, recharge, and relax.  It’s your safe place.  Have confidence knowing that we’ll work together to create a home you’ll love.  You deserve it.

Yes, although I only take on a select amount of clients because my priority is providing high quality, one-on-one service.  I do have a wait-list for clients who want to get on my calendar.

Designer for a Day costs $1597.  In addition to our 6 hours of actionable time together, I spend time before and after our working session preparing and delivering materials to help you solve your design problems and get the best design for your space.  

I strive to make sure my clients are 100% satisfied.  Rest easy knowing I will do everything possible to ensure your complete satisfaction.

If after your Designer for a Day service is completed and you’ve received your deliverables, you’re still not satisfied, I will give you a full refund of $1199.


Before we met you our home wasn’t pulled together and was just pieces of furniture placed in a room.  It didn’t have any character.  We worried when hiring a designer that she would design our home to her taste and not help us develop our own taste.  But once we met you, those fears completely went away.   Your “no pressure but great ideas” approach brought ideas we never would have thought of and our home is finally pulled together. You have the ability to find just the right thing for a spot, and to tell us if something doesn’t work. On top of having our home look great, we have so enjoyed your friendship.  That part is a huge bonus!
