Make Home Your Happy Place

Fall head-over-heels in love with your home.

You want your house to feel like home. To look stylish. Cohesive. Pulled together. Just like your favorite homes on HGTV. 

But you don't know where to start

Or you've started without success and you feel like you've wasted so much time and money.

Maybe you can relate:

  • You don't want to hire a designer, but you want the designer look
  • You buy throw pillows, lighting and art at the store, but the things you choose never look quite right when you get them home. 
  • You want your house to look cohesive and pulled together, but no matter how hard you try, that pulled-together flow never quite happens
  • Decorating seems so complicated.
  • And you're tired of your wasting time and money searching around online for the answers only to get more confused by all the conflicting advice online. 

You need a decorating plan.

What I’ve learned is that the thing holding most people back is the lack of a decorating plan.  

When you’re trying to do something new that you’ve never done before, you have to start from scratch, figure it all out yourself, and spend a bunch of time and money. 

Wouldn’t it be so much easier to have someone by your side guiding you through the entire process, step-by-step?  

What if you had easy-to-follow tutorials that show you exactly what you need to do PLUS dedicated time with a guide to answers any questions you had?  

You could spend weeks or months trying to figure it all out by yourself. You could browse Youtube and blogs for hours, wasting time on poorly made tutorials. But what if you miss something? What if you make a mistake? What if you don’t find what you need?

What if you don’t want to waste your time?  

You’re worried about how your house looks, but what if you never decorate it at all?  

I think that would be a shame.  

I believe you can decorate it yourself, and I don’t want you to waste your time or money.  

That’s why I put together a step-by-step process that brings all of my years of experience together to give you everything you need to decorate your whole home start to finish, one step at at time.

"I loved the lesson on color theory, and also THAT YOU TOLD US EXACTLY WHAT ORDER TO DECORATE IN!"

Decorating Uncomplicated is That Plan

My name is Shannon Acheson. I've been helping people just like you to decorate their homes since 2010. Before that, I felt the same way you do. I had no earthly clue how to create a beautiful, meaningful home. I had no idea where to start, or how to make it all look cohesive. I didn’t know which decorating style to make my own. And I had no idea that there was a proper order to decorate in! 

But after spending countless hours pouring over house photos and magazines, playing around with decor in every room in our house, and even taking an in-depth interior design course…I finally, FINALLY got our home looking and feeling the way I wanted it to. 

And in the process, I mapped out where to start and what order to decorate in, so YOU can have more cohesive style, the easy way, with less time and money wasted!

Decorating Uncomplicated is everything I've learned in my years of experience decorating my own home crafted into one neat package. 

This course will guide you, step-by-step, through how to decorate your whole home from start to finish. 

If you want to focus on creating a home you love and less on wasting time and money, then this course is for you!

Stop feeling overwhelmed and unsure of yourself and gain the confidence and skills you need to decorate your own home for less than it costs to hire a designer.

  • Easily find your signature style, learn how to describe it and know exactly which design elements you need for each space in your home
  • Finally learn to choose the right paint colors every single time.
  • Put together a design plan for your whole house, no matter what its size, that you can refer back to at any time. 
  • Decorate each room in your house with confidence, one at a time, as your time and budget allow in the right order
  • Save time and money because you'll never be unsure of a design purchase again! 

Get more cohesive style, with less time & money wasted!

What's included in the Decorating Uncomplicated course?

Here's the full breakdown of what's inside Decorating Uncomplicated...

1. Define Your Style

  • Don’t decide on your style before you take an “emotional temperature.” I’ll show you how to do it, what to consider, and how this will play out in your home. (Hint: this is WHY you can’t just choose someone else’s “after” photos!)
  • 8 types of houses have their own rulebook...which unfortunately no one hands you when you buy them. Break the rules on these homes and you’re sunk...but once you know the rules, you have a beautiful palette for creating your masterpiece.  
  • Trying to fit yourself into someone else’s boxes? Why those other ‘finding your style’ quizzes and guides will always leave you scratching your head…and DISCOVER the only steps that you will ever need to get you to your unique decorating style once and for all.  

2. Create Your Master Plan

  • Tired of rooms that just don’t carry their own weight? The hidden reason your rooms don’t function like they should and exactly what to do about it before you start decorating.  
  • Do the rooms in your house resemble something that was put together by WANNA BE DESIGNERS on a TV reality show, rather than a cohesively decorated home? Learn these 4 methods of creating cohesive flow and you’ll never have that problem again.  
  • Can’t figure out why your color choices always seem to look off? I’ll show you why, how to correct it and a simple trick for getting it right every single time from now on.  
  • Are you terrified of choosing a paint color for fear it will look awful? Break this rule and it always will. But follow it and you will never again regret a paint choice! (Hint: It’s so good, you’ll smack your forehead for not doing it before.)  

3. Decorate One Room at a Time

  • Tempted to buy and arrange all the pretty little décor items first? Bad news: do that and you’re guaranteed to hate the after. Decorate in this order instead and you will fall in love with your home just like Andrew Paxton falls in love with Margaret Tate in The Proposal.  
  • Does the thought of mixing patterns give you hives? I’ll teach you 2 cheats for coming up with absolutely perfect pattern combinations for every room of your home. No anti-histamines needed.  
  • Do your shelves and table tops look like you’ve just plopped down your accessories randomly – or like you’ve arranged them like Joanna? Learn 2 designer styling secrets so your collections look more like Pottery Barn than the thrift store.  
  • Find yourself buying too. many. things? Ask yourself these 3 questions every time you’re shopping and you will banish buyer’s remorse – and keep your home free of décor clutter - forever!

"My ah-ha moment was when I realized how much time and money we have spent in the past couple of years because I was going about things all the wrong way. I have painted rooms, changed decor and bought things over and over again and just could not get comfortable. I loved the house but it didn't feel like home. We did not focus on our true design style and never finished a room. It caused us to purchase things we didn't love. BUT now because of your course, we have found our style, re-focused on our whole home design plan and are decorating one room at a time. It is really exciting and I am falling in love with our home all over again."

I'm renting my home. Will Decorating Uncomplicated work for me?

Yes! Even in a rental, you can define your style and decorate your rental space so you can enjoy it for as long as you’re there. Plus you’ll have your design elements and decorating process down pat so you can take that with you anywhere in the world!

Will Decorating Uncomplicated work for me if I have a totally different style than you?

Yes! Decorating Uncomplicated will work for any style! Whether you like farmhouse or modern decor, neutrals or bold colors, this step-by-step system will work with any style! 

Can I take Decorating Uncomplicated even if I have a small budget for decor?

Yes! You will be given the tips and ideas for how to use what you already have in the space you’re currently in. PLUS you will learn how to plan a decorating budget for any additional items you may want or need now or in the future.

How is Decorating Uncomplicated different than your book (coming fall 2020)?

My book will be sort of a blueprint for embracing the most important place on earth. The Decorating Uncomplicated course dives deeper in one area of this to help you identify your unique design style, create a cohesive, whole home decorating plan and then walks you through the exact steps - in the right order - for how to decorate, one room at a time. 

"I found my style and was able to bring our small space together by creating a cozy and inviting home for our family of 8! My aha moment was when you talked about undertones! At first I was confused about what the undertone of my room really was. But after carefully analyzing the details I figured it out! That was the moment when I could bring everything together."
