Designer In A Binder® walks you through the decorating process by asking you the right questions so that you make the decisions that are perfect for you and your home.
Interior Designers charge an average $100-$200 an hour. And the average job requires 20 to 25 hours to complete.
That's $2,000 to $5,000 in design fees per room.
That's just not affordable for most people.
Designer In a Binder® is an AFFORDABLE ALTERNATIVE to hiring an interior designer.
And the system works (no matter your style --I don't teach you how to replicate my colorful designs, or anyone else's designs for that matter).
Seriously, the system really works.
I thought I hated my whole kitchen, but when I went through the Designer in a Binder system and filled out the worksheets, I realized there were parts of it I really loved and wanted to keep. It guided me through choosing colors and an overall vibe that I LOVE. If I had not had the worksheets, I would never have really thought through those important aspects of renovating. Best of all, my entire kitchen renovation only cost me $997!

"I used to get totally overwhelmed when it came to decorating and renovating our home. But if I hired a designer, I wouldn't have any budget left to buy furniture or accessories.
Now with Designer in a Binder, I can come up with my own design plan and use my hard-earned money to actually purchase things for my house."
- Margaux C.
You deserve a home you love.

Yes, you CAN afford it.
The Designer in a Binder system has led to mind-blowing transformations on small budgets. You can make any budget work. It's just a choice you have to make.
Unlock your home's potential one room at a time.
The system in Designer in a Binder can be used over and over again. Work at your own pace. No one is billing you by the hour. Can I get an amen? 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻
Read the book.
The book is short and easy-to-understand. It includes only what you need to know.
If you are looking for hundreds of pages of information, this is NOT for you.
Fill out the workbook.
The workbook takes you step-by-step through the process an interior designer would use to create a design for you.
But the workbook requires WORK. It can't work if you don't do the work. Just drooling over Instagram photos isn't gonna get you the room of your dreams.
Get personal support.
With the affordable PLUS and DELUXE packages, you get personal design feedback from me and an entire community of people to help you stay motivated and complete your project.
We won't let you get stuck. And we're fun. 😉
I always used to get so confused when picking out paint colors, fabrics, wall décor, etc that I would buy the wrong thing and waste a bunch of money. Designer in a Binder saves me money by making my decisions super straightforward!
If you don’t have the budget to hire an interior designer, but want the look & feel of a professionally designed home, then Designer in a Binder is a smart investment.
"I purchased Designer in a Binder just 3 short weeks ago and I'm so thankful I did. I don't consider myself very creative nor am I very confident about my ability to do my own designing.
DIAB has already helped me with both! In my first shopping trip to Target just a week after my purchase, the cashier actually asked me if I was an interior designer! Wow! I'm so thankful for DIAB!"
Designer in a Binder exceeded all of my expectations. I have taken online courses for design before but still felt ill-equipped to actually design a room.
Designer in a Binder is the only design resource I have found that delivers on its promise and it costs less than those that over-promise and under-deliver.
I put off decorating my home for the longest time because I didn't think I could do it. Designer in a Binder is like a step-by-step instruction manual that lays out exactly what you need to do, the order you need to do it in and what you need to pay attention to.
Having done one room with Designer in a Binder makes me confident I can tackle all the other rooms in my house.
"Since getting Designer in a Binder and digging in to do the work it's helped to focus my ideas and form a cohesive plan for my rooms. The direction the binder offers has kept me from making impulse purchases and helped me recognize things I already have that can be repurposed or restyled to fit in my scheme and look intentional.
I'm FINALLY getting those "polished" rooms I've always wanted! Thank you so much for finding a way to get this awesome information to the masses in an affordable way! And thank you for the additional support of the FB group, having all those extra eyes is really helpful!"
"Designer in a Binder provides structure in the decision making process. By walking through each step, you can narrow down what you like and create color palettes and samples of styles that might work in your spaces. The first steps of removing clutter has already made a huge difference!
My spaces are still a work in progress, but I have more confidence in taking the next steps in purchasing paint and furnishings. Designer in a Binder definitely helps to reduce the indecision paralysis!"
"I ordered the physical binder and learned so much. We're building a new home after spending years taking care of my elderly mother in her house. This kit is helping me know in advance what I would like to do with each room. It's been a joy to plan what goes where and to change my mind now based on the size of the rooms and the doorways.
The biggest help to me was learning to choose one item to influence the rest of the space. The house will be beautiful."
I purchased your Designer in a Binder a while ago and am working slowly through my house. It is amazing! I have started conversations with my kids that has been priceless.
I have also used it in a unique way you and Joe would appreciate. My firehouse, where I volunteer as an EMT, is getting a new brush engine that is 4 feet longer than our current brush engine.
I told them about Designer in a Binder and a volunteer got measurements and set it up. We need to move a few things around, but our new brush engine will fit! Designer in a Binder saved a lot of frustration and possible damage to a unit.

I'm a busy wife, mom of young twin girls, and a business owner. Yes, life is wonderful, but it's also hectic and stressful! I'm betting you can relate.
In my own life, I have seen what a positive impact LOVING my home has made on every aspect of my life. I know that starting and ending your busy days in a home that makes you happy is life-changing. If you don't love your home, you aren't living your best life. #sorryitstrue
But let’s face it. Not everyone has the budget or desire to hire a professional interior designer to help them create a home they love.
That’s why I created Designer In a Binder® as the first truly affordable resource that can help everyone decorate their home on their own timeline.
My design system that I set out in Designer In a Binder® works! My DIY and home decor projects from my website, Kaleidoscope Living®, have been featured on websites like Elle Decor, HGTV Magazine, Real Simple, Better Homes and Gardens, Good Housekeeping and Apartment Therapy.
I’ve even appeared on the Rachael Ray show to talk about my $71 laundry room makeover!

If you ordered the DELUXE package, your binder will ship out within 3 to 5 business days. For questions about shipping and tracking information, please email email@example.com.
Will I get a physical product?
Only if you purchase the DELUXE package. And if you are pre-ordering, your printed binder will not ship until they are ready (see above), but you will get access to the digital version right away.
With the BASIC and PLUS packages, you will receive your order via email shortly after placing your order. The files are in PDF format so you can print at home or at a print shop.
What is the difference between the 2nd Edition and the brand new 3rd Edition?
After selling over 4,000 copies of Designer in a Binder® we surveyed our customers to find out where they were getting stuck or what they would like to see more of.
We actually LISTENED to the responses because we are committed to making this the best product possible! Then we took action and re-wrote the educational portion of Designer in a Binder (the worksheets are unchanged).
The educational part of Designer in a Binder® DOUBLED in length. We added tons of illustrations, diagrams and more to make every step of the system crystal clear. With all the new examples and illustrations, art placement, proper scale, furniture planning, etc., you will have more confidence than ever as you create your designs!
The 3rd edition also arrives in a custom shipping box AND includes a keepsake box for storing larger samples, such as tile and carpet, that cannot fit in your binder.
Will Designer in a Binder® work for me if I have a totally different style from you?
Yes! The design system works no matter what your style is! Whether you love neutrals or neon colors, bold or subtle patterns, this system will work for you. The system teaches you how to discover your own unique style and create a
Do you offer private design services?
I would love to, but do not have time.
The only way to get "access to my design brain" is through the Facebook group that is included with the PLUS and DELUXE packages!
What if I have a question about my order?
Easy peasy. For questions about shipping/tracking or the condition of your binder when it arrives, just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. For any other questions, shoot us an email at email@example.com.
What if I have a question about Designer in a Binder® that I need answered before I can decide if its right for me?
Just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and ask away!
I live outside the United States. Can I still purchase Designer in a Binder®?
YES, if you are in Canada or Australia! We hope to be able to offer our products to more countries in the future.
How can I be sure it won't just collect dust?
Well, this part largely depends on YOU. You will have to do the work to see results. Just reading the book portion is not going to get you results. It's short, sweet and to the point because I don't think it's beneficial to just talk "at" people about design and decorating.
That's why I created this product as a SYSTEM. The huge value of Designer in a Binder® is in the workbook. If you don't fill the worksheets out, the system will NOT work for you.
You can work through Designer in a Binder® at your own pace and on your own schedule. Once you buy it, it's yours forever!
We have also included the private Facebook group with the PLUS and DELUXE packages. It is there to help keep you motivated, hold you accountable and make sure you don't get stuck.
How is Designer in a Binder® different from a design or decorating book I could buy at a bookstore?
The first part of Designer in a Binder® teaches you all about how to pick paint colors, how to choose pieces that are the correct scale for your space, how to space plan, and more. But the workbook portion is where the MAGIC happens.
The workbook portion systematically walks you through how to create a cohesive design plan. All you do is fill out each page of the workbook and you will have a cohesive design plan for whatever space you are working on. But what’s awesome is that it never feels overwhelming and it’s SO easy!
The workbook breaks it down for you and keeps it simple. I’ve never seen another resource with this feature (because there isn’t one)!
What is your refund policy?
We want you to feel confident with your purchase, so please take the time to review all our photos and product details carefully.
Sales of the DELUXE package are final once shipped. Due to the digital nature of the BASIC and PLUS packages, all sales are final.
But you won’t want a refund. I know that if you follow the system set out in Designer in a Binder®, you will be a happy customer! We've sold over 4,600 copies and have received a tiny number of refund requests.
