JoAnne Lenart-Weary is a Professional Interior Decorator and 40 year industry veteran who was staging and redesigning before the terms were even coined. She's also the creator of many industry tools such as the Confident Consultation, Decorating in the Zone, the Confident Color System, the DIY series and How to Decorate and Stage. She believes in arming you with information you can implement with a client immediately.

JoAnne delivers a total masterclass on choosing colors, color saturation, picking the right lighting, and so much more. We talk about why color is such a powerful presence in our lives and thus such an important tool for home stagers and designers to wield well. JoAnne and I also get into detail about which paints she prefers and how she picks them, her thoughts on different paint finishes, and why you shouldn’t be scared to bring color into your staging.
