My aha moment was when you talked about undertones!

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.

You told us exactly what order to decorate in!

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

I’m falling in love with our home all over again.

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."

Thank you for your direction and inspiration!

I haven’t gotten very far yet, but Cozy & Beautiful has been very helpful in just identifying my style and what I like!  I realized that I’ve had a fairly good idea of what I like and I’ve at least stopped buying things I don’t like up until now...it will help to focus on one room at a time so I don’t get overwhelmed. Thank you for your direction and inspiration!

You helped me pinpoint my style!

The course has helped me pinpoint my style.  It’s also helped me to realize that the smallest room in the house (my sewing/gift wrapping/exercise/filing cabinet/décor storage room) is used for the most functions! Your course has been very helpful. It’s keeping me focused and helping me to take the right steps to reach my goal of a beautiful, functional home.

Like A Security Blankie For Pitching Brands!

We were pretty stuck on where to start when it came to working with brands. When one actually contacted us we had a moment of panic and then picked up this e-book which came highly recommended from blogging friends. And we're so glad we did. Right away we implemented tips which helped us to get the most out of that sponsorship and set us up to confidently reach out to others. It really is like have a little security blanket in hand when putting together a pitch. Thanks Shannon!

Lightbulb moment!

Your explanation of paint colors was the light bulb moment for me! Your explanation would have saved us from painting a room twice along with saving money for the painter's extra visit. I am enjoying your e-book.  Thanks!

Brilliant project!

I made these with some friends, and we LOVE them! This is seriously a brilliant project. I'm a book lover, so I cut up some book pages into strips and Mod-Podged them onto two of the hoops. I painted the other 2 hoops, and they look fantastic. I will definitely be making more, and this time I'm going to try the stain! Thanks for sharing your great idea!
