Is the course only for parents?

Anyone who wishes join the Course + Community may do so. While the course focuses on creating stylish and kid-proof spaces, the design process will easily work for those without children in their homes.

How do I know I'll learn anything?

Because no one else is sharing their step-by-step design process like Lee does in these videos where she is drawing and explaining the design process as she teaches. Lee is focused on teaching people how to design as she does, not just sharing famous decorator quotes paired with inspirational pictures. Ever read a post titled "17 Hacks to Arrange Your Living Room" and feel like you learned nothing? No thanks! Instead, Lee is going to teach you actionable information to achieve real results.

What if I don't have enough time?

The Course + Community was designed so that busy women in a variety of circumstances could achieve incredible results in only 1.5 hours (on average) per week. Originally, the Course was offered for only 4 weeks and everyone was able to complete the contents in the allotted time.

Will there be other participants?

All Course + Community members are able to connect with one another in the members-only Forum throughout their lifetime access.

This login-only portion of the website allows you to post and interact with other course members. Lee will periodically check into the group and respond to posted questions. This group is like your design minded posse.

Hey! I’m Lee.

Lee Waters has all the education and training to take what’s in her brain and make it make sense for you! She earned an MFA in interior environments from Virginia Commonwealth University and BS arts art education. In addition to almost 20 years of interior design experience, she’s a mom to three and completely understands all of the nuances of designing beautiful spaces for families. Lee is ready to show you exactly how to live your best life at home…before your kids leave it!

This is probably the best investment I have ever made. My blood pressure drops instantly when I walk into my (newly furnished) house from work.

Rare is the day that [we] do not mention to each other how much we enjoy our new home! You took your highly developed sense of style and skills with [furnishings and architecture] and combined it so wonderfully with the styles and look we were hoping for. And when you add your professionalism and the positive and proactive way you handled those normal, expected challenges, we are not just happy with the final product, but also the experience of working with you on this.

We are truly contended!

Lee is a talented designer. She is professional and prompt. She transformed the rooms of our home into peaceful, comfortable, coordinated havens – with great accents and color choices. Lee always stayed within the budget and time-frame boundaries we wanted. She hired great contractors. Lee is a consistent, talented, organized professional and is a joy to work with!


When Lee came into my home it was in a chaotic and unhappy state. She understands color and light like no one else I’ve met and help me understand how I respond to both. After several months of patiently working with me through a difficult renovation I am thrilled with the results.I feel at peace and love my new space!


All I can say is WOW! Although I knew all the selections, it was jaw dropping to see it all put together. It was a long road to get here, but to see the finished product it was well worth it and exceeded my expectations. My family came over later last night and was blown away.Thank you again for a job well done!


I can’t recommend the Chic, Kid-Proof course enough! Lee IS NOT your average instagram amateur providing surface-level decorating tips; I consider myself a competent decorator already but was REPEATEDLY IMPRESSED at all the new things I was learning from her educated, professional knowledge of design that made a shocking difference when applied! This course is already a great price, but an especially good value considering the concepts can be applied to multiple rooms in your home. If you prefer DIY, this is the best use of your money.
