Design School 

For Homeowners

What is Design School for Homeowners? Who is it for? And What does it do for you?

My name is Jessica Velazquez. I am known as the First-Home Design Specialist!

In years of working with 1st-time homeowners, I know that, when it comes to your newly-bought property, your No. 1 priority is your finances, closely followed by your desire to make it look amazing. But furnishing an empty home with a limited budget makes you second-guess every decorating decision. The result: a chronic case of design fatigue or overspending & underdelivering.

That’s why I created DESIGN SCHOOL FOR HOMEOWNERS. DSH is for every property owner who is tired of not living in the house they once dreamed of, and is ready to change the way they shop for their home.


We like homes that are not just beautiful, but also inspiring, and we love it when they reflect who we are. 

We reject rooms that lack personality and our choices are driven by our needs, not by someone else's feed.

We furnish, decorate, and style our homes based on our lifestyles. The pretty comes after.

We not only dream of beautiful spaces, we take action.

We don't like overspending and despise buyer's remorse. 

We take 2 steps back, look at the bigger picture, and make better decisions based on clarity, vision, & planning.

What's included:

  • Online furnishing, decorating & styling course with over 30 short, self-paced lessons (check out the lineup below)
  • Monthly Designer-On-Demand Q&A to coach you and answer questions 
  • Private Facebook Group
  • Quarterly Facebook challenges at no extra cost
  • My acclaimed spreadsheet, "My Shopping List"

Is that even possible? Just read how others have done it.

Dami decided to work on the living/dining room of her brand new house. After learning how to create layouts, she included her whole house in the process too. Her shopping list was an overwhelming project, but the live Q&A and personal feedback she received from me gave her the clarity and support she needed to move forward. I can't wait to see her whole house finished.

Monica told me she used to pin A LOT! She may still do it, but now she has the tools to turn those ideas into plans. Her big AHA moment came after realizing that she did not have to finish the room all at once, but in stages that fit her budget. She has been making steady progress and her master bedroom will soon become everything she has always dream of.

Is this a course?

  • Yes! It is a self-paced course, but with a live coaching component. I take everyone "by the hand" and provide individual feedback.

Are the classes taught live or are they pre-recorded?

  • They are pre-recorded. Most of them are 10 minutes long. The live component is given through the monthly coaching when you can ask questions in real-time.

Do I have to watch the coaching sessions live?

  • All coaching sessions are recorded. You can watch them at your convenience.

How would I get feedback for my ideas if I can't join live?

  • You can email me your questions, ideas, and photos or post them on the Facebook group. I will then answer them during the live sessions. 

How would you help me choose paint colors online?

  • I use Sherwin Williams and Benjamin Moore. We would each use our paint samples to choose colors online. 

Do I have to buy everything new?

  • Absolutely not. We will work with what you already have, what you need to buy, and what you would love to get.

What if I don't own my house?

  • Please take full advantage of my bonus course Rent Like A Designer. I recommend working with furniture and decor elements you can take when you move. If you plan to stay there long-term, we can discuss options too.

What if my budget is limited? 

  • That is my specialty. There is no minimum nor maximum amount of dollars to spend. You will learn to work with what you have and plan.

I don't have Facebook. Can I still join?

  • Yes, the classes live on a learner's platform, not on Facebook.

I don't have a decorating background. Will this work for me?

  • It will! My process will teach you where to start and how to know you are heading in the right direction. And the personalized feedback will validate your ideas and add a few new ones.

What if I haven't moved into my new house yet?

  • You may use the blueprint provided by your builder.
