Room in a Day


Need help in creating a design plan for your room
that you can work with and complete on your own?

This service package is a more basic level of Room Designed For You. It is intended for clients who are design enthusiasts that would like to work directly with Karen in their home to help create a master design plan but are willing to do the legwork themselves. It provides you with the foundation that is necessary to create that perfect space.

The day brings Karen to your home with a 3-hour consultation giving you direct access to professional design expertise, insider tips, and advice. Then Karen will go back to her studio and work in a single day taking your vision and ideas to create your “master design plan” that will help you create your dream room.

A Room in a Day giving you a Master Plan from a professional that you can use to complete your design on your own!

Room in a Day

why it's right for you!

  • You’re struggling with creating a good design for your room and would love a professional to give a step by step plan.
  • You’re overwhelmed by the never-ending choices for your home and want a professional to give a stress-free process to make the right choices.
  • You want to learn about the best quality choices and solutions available that fit into my family's lifestyle.

How the Process Works:


Room in a Day Design Consultation

It all starts with a 3-hour in-home consult. This is where Karen meets with you to outline your "Master Design Plan”.  Karen walks through your room with you to determine your desired design direction. She reviews your ‘wish list’ and any photos or style ideas you may have collected for inspiration. She then creates a furniture floor plan if needed. Together, you collaborate in creating an outline of your room's Master Design Plan.

Karen creates a personalized Pinterest Board at the appointment (using online sources) to store ideas from your day so you have them to use right away. 


Marker Girl Studio Time

In her design studio, Karen then spends a day pulling together your official “Master Design Plan” based on the discoveries made at the consult. 

Your Master Design Plan includes

  • Furniture Floor Plan
  • Design Mood Board - showcasing the design concept
  • Design Guide - suggesting what type of furniture to buy
  • Decorating Details - how to implement the plan
  • A Room Quick Guide - FAQ's for your room type
  • Design Binder - to help keep your organized

Your plan is emailed to you within 5 business days.


Follow-up + Consulting

As you work with your Master Design Plan, for the first 30 days you will have 2 follow-up emails from Karen. This so you can check-in and ask Karen any questions you have about the plan.

After you receive your Master Design Plan, Karen offers Design Consulting sessions as packages of hours if you want additional help or guidance. You can use these to meet with Karen at your home, for shopping with Karen, and styling your room for those finishing touches.

What Our Clients are Saying...


"The value we received from the day (and the ongoing communication and ability to have questions answered as we checked off our list) was more than worth the cost of the services.

Karen was very prepared for our room in a day. Her ideas were wonderful, she truly understood what we were looking for and provided very pointed and helpful advice and resources for shopping and services. She provided us with the framework and options to get us off to a wonderful start. From there doing the remaining legwork was relatively easy as we worked off the checklist we’d developed with Karen. An excellent option if you need some overall professional guidance and suggestions to get you from square one to completion, but want to do the purchasing yourself.”

“Karen was very helpful in helping me make my ideas come to life and didn’t try to steer me into a style or design that I wasn’t comfortable with.

When I discovered Karen through an online referral it was that her style seemed to be similar to mine and I thought we’d be a good fit to work together, and boy was I right! I did 3 different room in a day’s with her along with her room planning sessions to help complete spaces around my home. In the end, my home turned out beautiful and we really had fun working together. If you need help with any interior design in your home, I highly recommend Karen Davis – Marker Girl. She was professional, fun, and always followed through with her projects. She also has great taste and you won’t leave from working with her and feel like your home isn’t ‘you.’”
