Get excited and empowered to
create your dream spaces in your home.

This 2-hour focused, one-on-one online video design consultation is perfect if you need guidance and execution advice on your design vision.

We’ll take you through our comprehensive design process so you can get the specifics on how to begin your home project, and you’ll get the chance to ask your burning design questions. If you’re overwhelmed + aren’t quite sure where to begin with all the projects you have in your home, or if you have one or two areas you know you’d like to start with but you don’t know what to do first, then design power sessions are for you.

Is this service right for you?



if you’re planning to DIY or hire your own contractor and do your own purchasing but you need some expert advice before you get started.

It’s great for you if you need to prioritize all the areas you want to work on in your home or start selections for a new build but need a design vision and direction first so you don’t make costly mistakes later.

Not so much...

if you’re looking a detailed design plan with drawings, specific material and product selections, or full service design where we do the design and the purchasing.

No follow up or revisions are included in this package. If follow up interests you, check out our Design Plan Package.

Sessions Process


Once you book your design plan, you get A power packet to walk you through:
  • Our design process + what info we’ll need from you before our video call.
  • The style questionnaire so we  learn your goals for the space and know your lifestyle.
  • Taking a video of your space so we have a successful consultation.
  • Measuring your space and recording measurements.
  • Organizing ideas on Pinterest boards without getting overwhelmed.
  • Taking + sending before photos.
  • Determining an initial budget for your project.


We’ll have our 2-hour online video consultation where We’ll go through your power packet together and review your project through the Refresh Design framework and create a vision/scope of work for your space:

R- Renew. We’ll discuss what inspires you and what would make your home one that renews your soul each day. We’ll review Pinterest board inspirations and ideas about how to make those come to life.

E- Empower. We’ll look at your specific space to see what improvements can be made that will empower you in your work life to be at your best daily. If you’ve got “analysis paralysis” we’ll help you prioritize your home projects and make decisions to help you move forward.

F- Function. We’ll share our ideas for what needs to change in your space to make it optimized functionally. You can ask us specific questions about function-related problem areas in your space. We’ll talk about how traffic patterns and furniture layout is affecting everything, and what you can do to get the added function you need. This is also where we can talk about budget. We’ll help you decide where you should you invest and where should you save money in your project.

R- Re-Use/Re- Do. We’ll talk about any existing pieces in your current space that you want to incorporate, and help you decide what furniture items to keep and what needs to move on. We can address things like, what to do with an heirloom piece or how to use certain items you need to make work due to budget constraints, or how to use existing artwork with all new furniture.

E- Energy. We’ll discuss how the current space makes you feel, how you want it to make you feel and what to change to create that feeling.

S- Style. We’ll give you ideas about incorporating the style you want to reflect in your space, and if you’re stuck finding your personal design style we’ll help with that, too. We’ll offer ideas, suggestions, info and resources for material + paint colors, floor plans, furnishings, local trades. (Ideas + concepts only-no actual materials or furnishings selections are made- if you’re in need of specific selections for your home please check out our Design Power Plans!)

H- Help. If you have any specific burning design questions we didn’t address previously for your space that you need to run by a pro, we’ll do that in this session too.


After your session, you get:
  • A video recording of our video call and a complete checklist of what we talked about so you can be off and running with your new design ideas.
  • No follow up or revisions are included with the Design Power Session. If follow up interests you, check out our Design Power Plan Package.
  • Have more questions or need more? Check out our Design Plan or Full-Service Design options to take your projects to the next le

Design to style your home & life

“By asking us questions about our taste, past homes, and what colors we found beautiful and soothing, AMy was able to pinpoint several selections that we would love.

We hired Amy from Refresh Design to help us pick out new colors for our home. The colors the previous owners had chosen were very bold and unique so it was difficult to imagine what new colors would look like. We have only had a chance to update one room so far, but I am very grateful for her time and expertise every time I go into our freshly painted sun room!”

- Beth Kraff

“Amy narrowed our choices down to the point where we could make an actual decision!

We wanted to make big changes in paint colors and replace carpeting with hardwood floors but had no idea where to start. We wound up going with her recommendations and are very pleased with the results. She guided us well!”

- Amy Topper
