Alrighty, let's get down to the nitty-gritty of designing your space! We'll start by thinking of your room in both 2D and 3D to better understand how objects will look and feel in the space. This is key in determining the best layout for your room to both function and flow.

This masterclass is intended to guide you through Melissa's go-to furnishing process in an actionable and approachable self-paced journey.
Short answer is, no. Imagine you could pick your house up and tip it over. Everything that would fall out of your house is what we will cover in this course. Furnishings include everything from larger pieces of furniture, to window treatments, rugs, artwork and accessories.

a room you are proud of every time you walk through the door.
the detailed knowledge of a professional interior designer that will stick with you through future home furnishing projects.
a full understanding of your comfort level with design, and a step-by-step guide to use at your current starting point (from scratch or further in) to make the most of your surroundings.
an interactive community that will motivate you and provide a design knowledge share that you will not find anywhere else.
We'll give you direction and motivation, and teach you how to determine your visual aesthetic goals for any space—whether it's a living room, bedroom, home office, etc. —and how to move forward on your project, based on your specific room layout and needs. After all of this, you'll walk away with the designer confidence needed to get the most out of your time and investments!
