Designer in a Binder- A Designer You Can Afford
The complete design system to create a home you love.

Finally, a designer you can afford.

The complete design system to create a home you love.

Everything you need to design a home you love. 

Do you ever . . .

  • Feel overwhelmed when it comes to decorating your home?
  • Feel embarrassed by your home?
  • Make spontaneous purchases for your home only to find that they don't work, causing you to have wasted time and/or money?
  • Feel like your home doesn't reflect your style or personality?
  • Put off decorating your home because you feel like you don't have the design skills to do it well?
  • Feel like you don't have a large enough budget to make your design visions come to life?

If so, you are not alone. I used to feel the same way.

The complete design system to create a home you love.

Hi, I'm Tasha! As a busy wife, mom of young twins, and a business owner, I NEED for my home to be my happy place. It should be the one place me and my family would rather be than anywhere else. That means I want it to function well for my family and be beautiful. 

I struggled with designing my own homes for years. I spent lots of money on purchases that didn’t work only to have to spend hours I didn’t have to spare returning items. Or I tried to make them work for a year or so, only to finally admit defeat and give them away or sell them for much less than I paid for them. 

But worse than the wasted time and money was how defeated I felt. I was confident in my taste and style, but somehow, I couldn’t pull it all together in my own home. It was frustrating to say the least. 

But I finally "cracked the design code" and have learned that you don't have to hire an interior designer OR have a huge budget to create a home you love.  

Over the years I've developed a design system that works for me every time. So I finally decided to share that design system with others. Because EVERYONE should love their homes!  

That's how Designer in a Binder was born!

My design system works! My DIY and home decor projects from my blog, Designer Trapped in a Lawyer's Body, have been featured on websites like Elle Decor, HGTV, 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!

You deserve to love your home.

  • You shouldn't hate your home.  
  • You should't feel embarrassed by your home.  
  • You shouldn't settle for rooms you don't love because you are on a tight budget.  
  • You shouldn't feel like you can’t have a well-designed home because you can’t afford an interior designer. 
  • You shouldn't think you can’t design a beautiful home yourself because you haven’t studied interior design.  
  • You shouldn't wait to create a home you love because you’ll be moving in a few years.  

You don't need to hire a designer or spend a fortune to create a home you love.

All you need is Designer in a Binder.

"Thank you to Designer in a Binder for saving me THOUSANDS of dollars on an interior designer. I was relying on a decorator to help me with my house when I found Designer in a Binder and realized I could actually do a lot of this myself! I didn’t have the confidence before, but everything is spelled out so clearly that I know exactly what to do. The house is coming together perfectly and I’m saving tons of money - I can’t say enough good things about Designer in a Binder! Thank you, thank you, thank you!"

"I actually do use an interior designer, but the only reason I can afford her is because I get a significant friends & family discount! Compared to paying $40 an hour for professional help, the value of Designer in a Binder is incredible! Now that I have Designer in a Binder, I don’t have to turn to my designer nearly as often because I now have the knowledge to do so much on my own.  

Designer in a Binder walks you through the design process in an easy to understand way. 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. Transforming your house into a welcoming home for family & friends is quite an accomplishment, which you can totally do on your own with Tasha’s design principles on your side!”

"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. My best friend and I went through Designer in a Binder together for 'girls nights in' and our houses started quickly transforming. I love the changes and I was pleasantly surprised at how much of a difference I could make on a smaller budget. 

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."
