Audra Slinkey

Design Testimonials...


Just finished the HSR E-Design course and some of the Design Files videos... MIND BLOWN!... SPEECHLESS! This is going to be a game changer for me and my design projects. For years, I have been creating these boards in photoshop, then turning them into pdfs, then manually creating links to the products. I just finished a design project that took me 6 hours to complete, I could have done it within an hour with Design Files! Audras Class sets you up with all your marketing and branding needs, you don't have to spend days writing copy and branding yourself. I will be able to have this up on my website in no time. Worth every single penny (her design boards alone are worth the price) and than some :)

Gina Gailing Big Style Staging

Before taking the HSR course, I never even knew E-Design existed. Often times, I would try to piece together some sort of an idea board using Publisher or another software, but I could never achieve a clean, well designed board. After taking Audra's E-Design course, it has been a true game changer for my business, and I believe I've only touched the tip of the iceberg. So excited to find new ways of incorporating E-Design into my staging business!


What can I say Audra. You were the very first staging company that I selected when I started my staging business back in 2017 and here I am still. One of the reasons I selected you, there were many, was "hands down" all of the resources you provided. I am a resource queen myself and you totally spoke my language. Since then, I have taken your Color course and most recently E-Design. I must make a confession here, even though I absolutely love my successful vacant staging business, I am secretly having a love affair with everything color, design & redesign.

Thank you for opening up some many wonderful opportunities within this industry for so many of us and for having a huge positive impact on my life. I look forward to 2021 and seeing what is on the horizon for you and your next award winning innovation.

Warm Regards,
Theresa Ceglio, We Stage Jacksonville

Audra, I’ve taken all of your courses now and I have to say that E-Design gets me the most excited as a low-investment, easy way to earn money NOW. I also love the additional training materials and technologies available to help me automate and create sales / marketing funnels. It is going to help me be more competent about applying this throughout all aspects of my business(es).

Jenean Lindley J Lindley Interiors

I aboslutely love that the HSR templates are available to hit the ground running with and promote my new eDesign service! They are beautifully created and I think that my clients will love them. Audra did a fantastic job walking me through the marketing automated systems. She really knows how to explain everything in such a positive way that makes me even more excited for this industry!

Tiffani Michalenko Lenko Design

The training was very straight forward and helpful. It guides you and makes you think outside the box on how you would apply it to your business. I am glad that I took this course as it also gave me a sense of direction and approach for my business.

Shruti Ray - Zehr House To Wows

The training is geared more for marketing E-Design services, which is very helpful. The actual training on how to use the software comes from E-Design tutorials. The templates are a great jumping off point to use and get the creative juices flowing. You can customize the templates and make them your own.

Sherri Rampy Standout Interiors

The E-Design class is packed with time-saving information. It is creative and Audra offers much insight into working design from your computer. This class should increase your bottom line significantly with both increased income and efficiency.

Lisa Ciofani Basham Helpful Home Staging

Audra's E-Design training is very comprehensive and offers a great way to get your business started. You don't have to "re-invent the wheel". She sets all the ground work for you! She is a wonderful trainer and full of great information. I thoroughly enjoyed this training!

Kim Alm Inspired Home Styles

This is an excellent training on E-Design. The lessons are well thought-out and none are too complex for us less-than expert "techies" or for those of us who didn't know E-Design even existed before joining HSR. The partnership between HSR and DesignFiles is wonderful, and the fact that we get access to the HSR Templates is such a great bonus... plus we have the option of not using the HSR Templates should the need arise. Thank you to Audra, Sheilah, Cole and everyone who has made this training possible!


I really enjoyed taking this course. Loved the templates and all the HSR boards, it gives me a lot of confidence getting started with e-design. I still have not decided what my niche will be, but I'm so excited about all the possibilities! Thank you for all the priceless marketing bonus advice!

Lina Haddad Freska Designs

This is my third HSR training course. Like the other two courses (Color Expert and Staging & Redesign) it is extremely comprehensive. Packed with information on every aspect of E-Design from how to create e-boards through to how to market my business online. Audra even includes the files needed to create a fabulous E-Design web page. In addition to the training, Audra shares access to 75+ of her pre-designed e-board templates. These offer a great starting point for customizing E-Designs for my clients, saving me hours of work and enabling me to hit the ground running with my E-Design business.

Many thanks again to Audra for another excellent course!

The Expert E-Design training was amazing! I recently completed Audra's Expert E-Design training and I have to say, it was one of the best decisions I've made to enhance my interior design career. The content was very well-structured and easy to follow. It provided me the knowledge and skills that I need to confidently take on my new business. The Canva templates were a game-changer, as they will allow me to create beautiful designs in a fraction of the time that it would take me to start from scratch. Overall, I would highly recommend the Expert E-Design Training! It was a fantastic experience that is transforming my career and dream to become an Interior Designer.

Lisa Nolt Mystic Bay Interiors

It was and is the most beneficial training I have ever attended and received so much information and knowledge from!

Verlene Butts Verlene's Staging Studio

This training was exactly what I needed! Audra was so upbeat and gave all the relevant information to take my business to the next level. It simplified so many processes that I was struggling with. Wish I knew about this course when I started my business almost a year ago. Don't hesitate! Sign up!!! Everything is literally prepackaged for you.

Nateva Peterkin Teva Interiors Inc

The training was amazing, you couldn't be any clearer on how to successfully succeed in this business. The handouts and templates are perfect!

Dee Stevens Interiors Revealed

I really enjoyed the training! I am new to this and have gained so much knowledge of how to proceed and start an E design business. I'm sure I will be referencing much of it as I continue forward. Audra is great in explaining everything and has made it so easy to start. I feel much more confident than I did!

Donna Kaminski House to Home Interior Design LLC

This training was extremely detailed. You're not left wondering what your next step should be. It's well explained and laid out. I feel like I'm not jumping off the deep end but rather shrouded with support.

Jodi Rhoades Leigh Design

This training was comprehensive and a good add-on service for designers. The templates alone are worth the price of this training!

Stephanie Engel Spaces Reinvented, LLC

The E-Design training was another full packed program, with loads of great information, resources and reusable templates to get up and running quickly -- Audra, your training just keeps on giving !

Wendy Mills Wendy D Mills Staging & Redesign

E-Design training provided me with an abundance of great information, offering a fantastic way to kickstart my design business. I thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of the course, from the training modules to the provided templates. The HSR templates provided were invaluable, saving me time and effort in creating professional designs. I highly recommend this E-Design course to anyone seeking to launch their design business. The wealth of knowledge, enjoyable training, and exceptional templates make it a standout choice.

Kate Kalajak ModernVue Studio

Audra, your E-Design class was a game changer. I've wanted to implement so many of the things you talked about but had no idea how do to it but now thanks to you, I do. I love the videos and materials you gave us and now I know what companies I want to have help me automate my sales and marketing funnels. I can't wait to see what happens next!

Pam Wichlei The Space: Let's Talk Interior Design!

I thought the training was thorough and very detail-oriented. If I had any questions, they were always answered in that same video, or answered in the next one. I loved that I was able to download the slides and print them out so if ANYTHING came up, I could gain immediate access to the information. The HSR templates greatly aided in the ability to begin a client project. It was helpful to see how different templates are structured and what has worked in the past with previous clients that Audra had. So thank you!!

Jasmine Lanagan Jasmine Lanagan Design

The training and templates provided in this training are beyond valuable for e-design. I have been in commercial interior design since the mid-1980's, with a degree in residential design. I have been wanting to design AirBnB's for a while, but since I don't source residential furniture, I wasn't sure how to make it work. Audra provides so many tools, tips, and templates to make this venture a great success - not only for me, but for my future customers! Thank you, Audra! I am super excited to get started!!

Cyndi Scarboro Second Stories By Design

I enjoyed taking this training course. I have always wanted to start my own business in the decorating and design field. I feel that I found the best training from Audra. The templates are a great tool to have. Especially just starting out. I would not know where to begin. So these will be a great help for me. I'm looking forward to pursuing my passion.

Sharon Melito Lux Studio Designs

I think the training was short, simple and great. I LOVE the HSR Templates!! Giving access to these templates is the most amazing thing because truly the work is already done for you and so much time will be saved. Before this, it took hours to come up with concepts and inspiration but now, my client can just tell me a style and I will already have something to show with just a few tweaks.

Sherry Burton All Things Home, Interior Design Services LLC

Excellent training that gives you a step by step process to get set up and ready to start offering this service. I love the HSR Templates so that you don't have to start a design from scratch.

Trina MacPhee MacPhee Interiors Inc.

Yet again, Audra and HSR provides the most comprehensive and valuable training available. I started an interior design business that has kept me employed since 2009 after taking her Home Staging Class...I found my way back, after a move from Los Angeles to the East Coast looking for a way to continue to serve clients in the West as well as build a business in the East; enter E-Design! What a dream, and the possibilities are absolutely endless. I can't wait for the launch of my website (Truly Branded by HSR) and to be fully engaged in selling these incredible services. I feel so fortunate that HSR was my training platform so many years ago, so I knew the program would be stellar. Next up Color Certification...even though I have been doing color consults for years, I love the way Audra packages it all and the tools in every training are invaluable. I can't speak highly enough about this program, the support, the follow thru and the value. Just do it!

Karen Sommers Karen Sommers Interiors and Staging

The training is amazing I like that it had a lot of resources, self-paced , step by step videos and the templates very organize it was very helpful for me because I was able to go back over the material I worked graveyard full time as a heavy equipment operator I been working in Wearhouse for over 20 years in October of 2022 I injured my right shoulder rotator cliff tear and a ruptured bicep tear in September 2023 I will be having surgery. I know I needed to make a change and reinvent myself and learn new skills your HSR training helped me not to give up on myself yes it have been a challenge being homeless and trying to reinvent myself thank you

Juanita McDaniel Captivating Designz

This was such an awesome training! I cannot wait to implement it into my business. The beautiful templates that Audra provides us is worth the price alone. So great!!

Francesca Bassoo Francesca Alexis Interiors

I really enjoyed the training and the templates and I can't wait to get started. There are so many applications for E-design. We can't wait to help more clients and build lasting relationships with past clients.

Lynette Baker BDJ Style Redefined

Audra's training for E-Design exceeded my expectations. Very thorough and WOW, she is so generous with her work product. Sharing templates that can be rebranded, content resources, etc. At the end my favorite BONUS, the Essential Room Design Rules brochure. Thank you Audra for everything. I look forward to seeing my business grow.

This training was the best 3 days I have spent on my business! I am a creative person who can spend all day looking at the amazing design boards that are included with Audra's Expert E-Designer Program; however, I was intimidated by using the technology since I am not a "techy" person. Audra explained everything step-by-step, which made the technology easy to understand - even for me. I watched the videos on my iPad while implementing each step on my laptop - I wish I could take credit for this technique, but it was a suggestion of Audra's at the beginning of the training. It worked like a charm! By the end of the training, I had my E-Design business ready to launch!

Cassandra Fulks Desert Decor Interiors, LLC

I LOVED this training. I like the way it's set up better than the staging training (even though they are very similar). A ton of great content and I'm so excited to get started on offering this as a start to more services for clients.

Sarah Lukas Dock Five Interiors

The E-Design training and HSR Templates provided by Audra are amazing! I love that I have everything I need to hit the ground running, as well as how to market my business and feel confident that I will be successful. This training is well worth every penny for all of the expertise and knowledge you will gain. The business materials are by far the best and Audra leaves no stone unturned when helping you launch your e-design business. From the training, to the templates, which are all beautiful by the way, to helping you market yourself to success...You will not be disappointed!

Patricia Schoenewald Trish Somers Design

I was blown away by how all the materials needed to run my E-Design business were pretty much handed to me. Everything is pretty much planned out for me already and I just need to follow all the steps, copy & paste most materials by just adding a little flair of my personality and poof... no need to reinvent the wheel. THANK YOU!


I couldn’t have asked for a more concise and simplified way of learning how to do E-Design PROPERLY. I wish I had known about this course months ago when a regular design client turned into an E-Design client due to did not go nearly as seamlessly as I would’ve liked and I would’ve avoided a lot of bumps if I had this course to follow along with at the time. Needless to say, I wish I could get a do-over!!

Anni McGuinness The Crooked House Studio

I really enjoyed the e-Design training. I love your gifts, all these promotional materials, videos...AMAZING! I can definitely see myself working as an e-Designer 100% of my time as I enjoy the whole process. Thank you for motivating me to push my boundaries. I feel that I need to watch your videos from time to time whenever I feel down or swamped or something like that. :)

Yelena Pavlova Pavlova Design Studio

I thoroughly enjoyed the E-design training. The resources provided as well as those suggested are phenomenal. I never would have thought that I could pull off offering a comprehensive remote product before this. This training can be used to enhance an existing staging and re-design business or be a career on its own. I love it! Thank you for sharing your expertise and passion for design with the rest of us.


The E-Design training was inspiring and gave me incentives to update my website and marketing plans, and to consider automating my email follow ups. The HSR templates are a definite plus to not have to reinvent the wheel.


I loved the class. The length was just perfect, not to overwhelming. It really reined in my big ideas to start small and easy. Love the possibilities of where this can take me! Excited to get started in marketing my business.

Sarah Sellers Handy Girl Decor

I thought this training was great! I learned SO much. I have taken the CCE and also the Staging and Redesign courses and this really rounds out my design business. With it I am that much more confident in the tools I have when I am working with clients. I am really excited about all the possibilities of E-Design and how it will help me communicate my vision. It will allow me to reach so many new clients all around the world!

I loved the training! I loved the level of detail and information Audra shared with us. I love that it feels we are partners in this together. Great experience!

Elizabeth Medina Ross CAME Designs

I have been looking for a few years on my own to figure out how to best take my Staging & Re-Design business online. I kept getting stuck. There was no clear cut path to what I thought I needed to do to take my business to an E-Design format. I wanted to revamp my website & brand to clearly show that I now offered E-Design along with my other services.

Audra's Expert E-Design course was more than I ever thought I would get. I learned so much about so many different things. After having a business for so many years, it was amazing how much there was still to learn. Not only new technology but new ways of setting up systems & great marketing ideas & scheduling automation systems that I had never heard of much less used.

So much GREATNESS!!! This course was way more than I ever thought it would be and at most, I thought after all these years in the business I would learn a few new techie things but I got so much out of this.

Audra makes it fun and put me at ease that I could do all of this and she lets you know she is available if there are questions. I also did her weekly "Happy Hour" chats which were available right about the time I signed up with her.

There's so much to do and so much potential out there...I can't wait to get this all 100% up & going. I will take more of Audra's courses for sure. I'm a big believer in continuing my education. You can never know all there is to know in an industry like this. Audra is real, down to earth and extremely knowledgeable. She's my new Guru!

Scarlett Schilling SPRUCE

I loved the training because it focuses on the business side more than the design side. I've gone to design school for both interior design and home staging and although this has helped me get started as a designer, in no way did I have the tools to start my business. Your step by step course on process and marketing is exactly what I needed and has gotten my "juices flowing"! Can't wait to see where this takes my business!

Ang Fillion Home Rehabit Interiors

I've never loved anything as much as I do with HSR. The training is intense and really challenges me from a technical standpoint. I am finding that this training HSR and E-design leaves no stone upturned and is always moving forward. The Facebook chat rooms and live webinars are so helpful and supportive.

Karen Glass Simply Savvy Interiors LLC

Audra does it again! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this E-Design Course!!! It was so easy to follow b/c of her enthusiasm and interesting content! Course includes everything you need to incorporate E-Design into your business: marketing materials, forms, how-to videos, web-site buttons, and more! HIGHLY recommend this program for anyone wanting to learn the most cutting edge tools that will help drive revenue and build your staging & design business! Thanks Audra!

Carolyn Plummer Carolyn Plummer Designs

There is so much great information provided! I am very impressed by the many sources and tips on how to promote your design business. This course is perfect for the novice who is just breaking into the business, and also for the seasoned designer to get their creative juices flowing to capture more business!

Julianne Burtin Elite Design Consultants, LLC

The E-Design training is very innovative. Audra brings her experience, creative ideas, upbeat personality, eye for design and integrates those into a comprehensive "masterpiece" training. As a former student, I am once again impressed by the way this training makes you immediately ready to implement it into your business. Audra prepares you and places you in your "A" game before you even start. This training has provided me with the tools to take my business to the next level. With technology now being our driving force, we can save clients time, money, and give them immediate gratification by providing them with their desired result before spending their money. The best part of the training is the support from Audra and her staff. You will finish this training with confidence because of the amount of knowledge you will gain. Knowledge is power and the power of knowledge equals confidence. Thanks Audra

Amy Black Coastal Staging & Design

I really appreciated and learned so much in Audra's E-Design training program. It was most helpful and I really love the step-by-step process taught which makes it feel so attainable. Audra is also very motivating and encouraging which drives you to believing in yourself! I also love all the resources and tools she provides throughout the training. So much value!

Amanda Dukes High Haven Design

I loved the course. I found it something that I thought I would never have the opportunity to learn. Never in a million years would I think that I could do a 3-D design, even though I've been in the design field for 20 years. Audra is so generous and positive. Thank you for teaching me a new way of doing business. This will surely be a complement to my existing Design co. I highly recommend this course and I probably will take other courses that she offers in the near future. Thanks to Expert E Design!

Fayen Nielson The Nielsen Collection of Interiors, LLC

I love ALL of Audra's trainings. She keeps the modules short so I can pace myself and she provides loads of handouts and other documents for me to use in my business. I really feel my success is her success and she is invested, not just out to add to her numbers. I always recommend HSR when asked about staging training and now I can add CCE too!

Another incredible training experience. I had just completed the Staging & Redesign Certification training and jumped right in to this one. The level of detail, guidance and materials you provide are simply outstanding! I'm am starting the Certified Color Expert training tomorrow and can't wait to be blown away again. I feel like a kid in a candy store, it's awesome!!!

Jodi Kelly Kelly Home Designs

E-Design training was fantastic! What an amazing new service that is keeping up with the times! Audra provides so many visuals, how-to videos, examples, templates that are useable and user-friendly. She made the learning fun, easy and hands-on. With the materials she provides, I'm able to add this service to my business right away. Worth every penny!

Janine Conti Janine - Home & Style

This is the third training I have completed with Audra, and it just might be my favorite. This literally speaks to my love of design and organizing looks. I can't believe how much fun it is going to be to compile boards of my own. My in-laws own a wedding venue, and I am thinking about how to put together wedding boards for their brides. It's exciting!


The HSR E-Design training is the best I have found. HSR provides so many templates and so many training modules. Audra does not like for anyone to reinvent the wheel, so she gives you so many resources to quickly make your business a success. The price for what you get is very reasonable. Once you complete the training that is not the end. You have these resources forever and HSR is always there for you if needed.

Andrea Turner Decor By Redesign

I have been overwhelmed with the wealth of information I have received through the Expert E-Designer training program. I am so excited to use what I have learned and to avail of the templates and resources shared throughout the course. I am extremely confident that all of the above will elevate my Interior Decorating and Color Consultation services, as well as the Occupied Staging services I will be offering in the near future. My clients will benefit tremendously from all this knowledge. I am also in the midst of the Certified Color Expert training program which is amazing! Thank you, Audra, for opening my eyes to the potential I always knew existed but did not quite know how to achieve!

Lisa Rozario L M Interiors

The training was fantastic and the HSR templates are absolutely gorgeous. Audra is so personable and relatable and makes the training very engaging. I am also taking the Staging/Redesign training and this course helped reinforce some of the lessons in that course. The templates make it easy to build on and get really creative.

Lisa Gwaltney Eye For Design

This training introduced me to an entirely new facet of design, and I'm excited to share it with my clients! The ability to produce visuals with ease will provide another level of service, and will be a game-changer when working with clients remotely!

Deb Tisler Santa Fe Redesign

During this Covid19 times, I lost my job in the fashion industry and so decided to do my purpose and what I loved best which involves some fashion i.e. Staging and Redesign. So I got certified for staging with another company. Then 4 months later I stumbled on Audra's Staging Training on youtube and decide to buy her training because of the way she broke down the steps for me to learn effectively. When I saw the E-Design youtube video I was sold and invested in myself by buying that training as well. The training is very detailed and very clear to understand. I love this thorough way of teaching because that's how I learn and the examples were amazing. I was able to follow each and every step thoroughly and go back if I didn't understand and go back if I need to write my notes. I love the fact that Audra was able to gave us our business on a tray. She basically gave us our business in our hands by training us in this way so we can have a full understanding of how to run it. Of course we can have our own creative way of doing our boards etc. but I'm so appreciative of how she broke it down and really handed us our business in our hands. Thank you Audra!


Audra's courses give you a fail proof plan from A to Z. From learning, developing, building, with a dash of confidence to trust in what you learned (or knew what was in you all along), but it wouldn't work without the marketing plans she walks you through. I plan to follow her marketing steps and rules to really bring it home. I'm going through all of her courses at the same time (HSR, Color Expert, and E-Design) and while it is a LOT LOT LOT of information, it is so worth every penny to hear, learn and execute what she teaches. Loving this new chapter in my life to launch my business and know I have learned from the best.

Stacie Kellogg Sorelle in Design

I've done all three of your trainings and have thought they were awesome. Lots of good information, in a well planned format, with visual and sequence of activities. I'm becoming a fan of checklists which I'd never thought were worth the time. So much is already provided, graphics, give aways, emails, so we don't have to "reinvent" the wheel. This was particularly true in the E-Design course. I love that you went to the depth of actually showing us a scheduler, which I'd have to adjust to a bit. I do see the value for time savings for both parties, and I appreciate how you addressed keeping it personal for the client. Thank you so much!

It’s a lot of valuable material, so you won’t want to rush. Since it’s at your own pace, you set your hours.  

Here's the timeline breakdown of the training...

Wow! I'm amazed at all the cool board templates in my account...will I get more?

Yes!  Our designers love creating these boards and we have BIG plans for different ways to use them to help your business.  Although we don't benefit as a training company by adding to your DesignFiles subscription, we can't help but want to be helpful as you pioneer this industry:-).

Is this course 100% online?

Yes, because you will want to always be able to refer back to the instructions.  The class is at your fingertips and you can hit the "rewind" button to refer back to sections at any time as a member.

Are the HSR Templates you offer in the DesignFiles copyright or free for us to use as we wish?

  • The HSR Template Projects are NEVER to be given in their entirety for free to anyone in order to prevent widespread distribution.  You may however share the BOARD IMAGES ONLY (NOT LINKS OR PRESENTATION) to clients and in your materials as an "example" of what they will receive.
  • The HSR Templates are primarily to be used as "starting points" for your projects.  You've just saved 4 hours of work, by starting with a beautiful board, so now swap out some products and go from there.
  • Never give an HSR Template project away for free unless we specify that that template is to be used for a sales funnel or "freebie" on your site (and we have quite a few of those for you).  If we see that you are doing that, your HSR Templates will be revoked.

Do I have to be an Interior Designer, Decorator or Home Stager to take this course?

No. In fact, you may decide to just create a business doing e-design consultations which is a ton of fun! Having said that, the course is really beneficial to those already in the industry since it creates a sales funnel for their design business through the gateway service of e-design.

How easy would it be for you to send an follow-up email to every home seller you work with for staging that introduces the idea of creating a "Move-In Design Plan" for their new home?

Why did Audra create this course and how does it benefit me?

This course was a natural progression for anyone who has gone through my staging certification course because it expands and easily upsells their design service.  Here's my story...

When can I use the Expert E-Designer logos on my website and marketing materials?

We have a variety of cool Edesign logos for you to be able to use in your own marketing once you’ve gone through all the modules and completed a simple quiz at the end of Module 3 which insures you are confident about your newfound e-design knowledge.  You will also want to include the initials EE after your name as an additional designation you've gone through.

Do I get a Certificate of Completion?

Yes!  At the end of the course, you take a short quiz for your Certified Expert E-Designer Certificate.  You also get the benefit of our logos and being a part of the largest group of E-Designers collectively!

I'm not in the United States, will this training and the boards be relevant to me?

Yes and no.  Yes, in the the training is universal and the easy copy and paste forms, emails, images for you to use instantly will be a HUGE time saver.

In terms of the DesignFiles boards...while the products sourced in the boards were all online product, some of the vendors do ship internationally while some do not.  The whole point to the boards is that you are getting a starting point to work from and a HUGE inspiration platform.  Simply swap out the products that are not a fit, change the images, do whatever you like to make them your own.  

The alternative is you have a BLANK account:(

By the way, we have several members from Canada and even one from Romania and South Africa!

What if I already have a DesignFiles Account...Can I Still Get the HSR Templates?

Absolutely!  We have simple instructions in the training that walks you through how to get our over 100+ Project Templates added to your account.

On a personal note...

I've trained thousands of people who have a passion for homes, design and color on how to create successful businesses doing what they love.  If you love design then you don't need a four year degree to break into the industry.  Simply follow my e-design training blueprint, create design packages and help clients source the best products for their space.
