Whether you’re looking to make your home beautiful or seeking a stand-out look to sell your home in today’s competitive housing market, Done in a Day Decorating has the interior design expertise you need. Owner Laurie Heffernon is an interior decorator, home stager and home re-designer with extensive experience and a keen eye for detail, style, color, lighting and space planning.

Done in a Day Decorating brings twelve years of experience consulting with satisfied clients…one beautiful room at a time. In fact, much of her business comes from repeat clients and referrals.

Laurie will work within your budget, help you avoid costly decorating mistakes or craft an outstanding look to stage your home for sale. Clients range from those with modest budgets to those with more involved interior design plans.

Our best clients are those who have tried to decorating themselves, because they know how expensive and time consuming a design project can be without design experience, especially when they find it difficult to get through the self-doubt phase of the planning.

Fees are charged hourly, giving clients the flexibility of using Done in a Day Decorating’s expertise where and when they need it, without having to engage in an expensive designer relationship. Some clients feel that they don’t have a designer’s eye, while others are afraid to make expensive mistakes. Others just don’t have the time and energy to design the rooms they long to love. Some clients just need a jump start, or to be kept on track, and that is perfectly OK.

Done in a Day Decorating provides a variety of design consultation services, depending on project and client needs. Services include the development of floor plans and color schemes and the choosing of paint colors, furniture, cabinetry, counters, tiles, lighting, rugs, flooring, window treatments, art and accessories. Favorite furnishings don’t have to go!

We’re located in Marlborough, Massachusetts, generally serving clients within a 90-minute radius including Greater Boston, Metrowest and Central Mass. We're also happy to serve clients in other areas.

Local consultations have a 2 hour minimum, so with a little homeowner DIY, it can be “truly affordable design.”

Commented: Love this bed! Where is it from? Sorry it took me so long to respond -- I have been away! The bed was already part of the homeowner's collection. I believe it was from Ethan Allen.

Commented: what are the dimensions of this room? I don't seem to have the dimension of the room in my file but I do know that the rug is 9x12. It is a large room but not a "grand" one. Sorry I could not be more helpful!
