"Dani helped me find my style and coached me through redecorating the main floor of my house. Her patience, kindness and great advice helped me gain the confidence to take on new projects of my own. It was a wonderful experience working with her."

Hi, I’m Dani!

I'm a former first grade teacher turned home decorator. Going from a dual income household to a single income household so I could stay home with my babies has meant budget. Budget everything. With an eye for design, a penny in my pocket and many years of napping babies, I learned to bring design to my home, and to the homes of my clients, on a budget. Design is within reach, is teachable and everyone deserves to live in a home they love with the budget they have. I'm thrilled to be bringing you design strategies on a budget!
