Good Harvest Marketing clients are professional interior designers who want to create a thriving, 6-figure business they love.
They love selecting who they work with, how they spend their time, and how much money they make.
Above all, they believe in offering the highest quality of service to their communities.
Erin Haugerud, EH Designs
Erin is the owner of EH Designs, a full-service, boutique interior design firm based in the Twin Cities.
“I feared I would be stuck where I was forever… I was also fearful that if I narrowed my target market, there wouldn’t be enough clients. From literally day one, Nona addressed that concern – and she was right!
GHM helped me narrow my approach and hone in on who I was talking to vs. the clients I wanted to be talking to, and how to connect with them.
I now have confidence in my messaging. I know who is the right audience to target based on my goals for the business (not someone else’s goals), and the tools for marketing/networking/social media.
I wonder why it took me so long to seek this kind of amazing help.”

Veronica Sanders, Design with Veronica
Veronica Sanders owns Design with Veronica, a Dallas-based interior design firm that’s one of the leading Black-owned interior design firms in the country.
“I struggled with finding the words to relay my thoughts on how I wanted my business to be represented, and I was also suffering from impostor syndrome.
Good Harvest Marketing helped me solidify who I am as a business owner and designer, and I learned to put into words what I am working to accomplish. Having that part of the process in place allowed me to create a business pitch that helped me secure a $5,000 business grant!
I feel more confident going forward that I know who I am, and can confidently share my brand.”
Casey Hopkin, Hazel Grace Limited
Casey Hopkin is the owner and lead designer of Hazel Grace Limited, where he focuses on high-end home remodeling projects as well as designing interiors for bars, restaurants, and hotels.
“Marketing my business has always been a dismal chore, and something I never thought I needed to do… until it became clear that it was the ONLY thing I needed to do in order to be independent with my own business!
Doing this work really anchored me. It changes the way you view goals. My goals now seem more tangible, more serious… it’s a different way of thinking that has really impacted different parts of my life. I loved that the information was laid out methodically, which is how I learn and understand everything in life. The energy exchange was invaluable.
Stop what you’re doing and just contact GHM. They help you see what you don’t!

Katie Geddes, Katie Geddes Interiors
Katie Geddes Interiors is located in the downtown area of Milford, CT, and has been featured in monthly TV segments and the local town magazine.
“My area is saturated with interior designers and I was just throwing out a net hoping to get clients. After working with GHM I’m now more strategic and targeted, and have a LOT more confidence.
GHM supported me every step of the way. Nona took extra time to personally give me her feedback and direction, and within 24-hours of taking action on her advice, I had a new consultation. Incredible! I’m so grateful to have found you.
Thank you for your incredible guidance and support, and to my fellow designers… it’s WORTH EVERY PENNY!”

Wendy Appleby, Your Home By Wendy
Wendy helps empty-nesters in the Baltimore/DC areas and nationwide prepare for their next chapter in life with an upgraded lifestyle.
She’s been called “cupid” for her ability to listen to her clients’ goals and challenges and – through a renovation or remodel – transform their current living space into the home of their dreams.
“Nona is the real deal. Approachable, understanding, and a great listener. This is the first time I’m actually excited at the prospect of marketing my business!
Working with her made me realize how important it is to start with a comprehensive plan, so all of my energy and efforts are working towards a specific goal: reaching my ideal clients.”

Carolina Bermeo, Caro Bermeo Designs
Carolina Bermeo started her design career in Ecuador, and now she’s a full-service interior designer based in the Lehigh Valley, Pennsylvania.
“Just a few months ago, it seemed like such a big, blurry picture. Everything seemed out of reach. I’m so happy that GHM helped me see the big picture clearly, but also walked me through every little part.
Everything became clearer, more approachable, and smaller – which is exactly what I needed. It made the whole process of building my business seem less scary.
Doing this has really given me the confidence to put myself out there.”

Ashley Craumer, Strawberry Hill Interiors
Ashley Craumer helps families in the Hudson Valley of New York achieve the home of their dreams.
“When we first started working together, everything you said sounded great, but I didn’t know how it was going to work for me.
Everybody tells you that you have to be on this, or on that, or that you have to spend all your money on all these things. I know there are designers out there spending all this money, and it’s not necessary.
As I continue doing the things we talked about, my business continues to grow. And as much as my tail is busy spinning with work stuff, I know that my marketing is something I no longer need to stress about.
To sit here now and know that it’s working is just amazing!“

Carolyn Kimbro, Peachtree Studios
Carolyn Kimbro infuses charm back into people’s homes so they can fall in love with them again through her Huntsville, Alabama-based design firm.
“Since implementing the system, I have had multiple inquiries, and just scheduled my third and fourth paid consultations within 2 weeks! I used to be so shy, so it’s so great to be given tools to have the confidence to go into situations and know how to talk about my business without sounding apologetic… and I’m getting better at determining whether a prospective project is for an ideal client to see if it’s worth it or not.”

Deb Morelli, Inspired Design by Deb
Deb Morelli is a Norwalk, Connecticut-based interior designer who creates comfortable homes for high-functioning, over-scheduled families so they can finally have it all.
“As a former marketer in the corporate world… it was hard for me to market for my own business as my pockets were not as deep! It was eye-opening to connect the dots of how I can grow my business doing what I am most passionate about, which is making people happy in their home and celebrating it.
It is so beneficial to have a credible and valued third-party who understands the business to act as your personal guide; to be an incredible cheerleader and a patient coach.”

Stephanie Georgoulakis, Life by Design Interiors
Stephanie Georgoulakis is the principal designer of Life by Design Interiors in San Antonio, Texas, where she specializes on both upscale residential and large-scale commercial interior design work.
“I was a new business owner, and I was struggling with impostor syndrome. I knew that I needed to get some things started and set up, but I didn’t really know how. I had some grasp of marketing, but there are so many things that I didn’t know then that I know now.
I’ve now identified who I really want to work with, my branding is now more me, and I have a website that I love, works for me, and is more in line with who I am as a designer.
If you want to be a successful designer and business owner, you need to have a good foundation, and to know where you need help. This is your business, and it deserves to be treated as one. Don’t wing it!“
Karen Loc, Lore Design, Inc.
Karen Loc owns a full-service, international interior design firm based in New York City.
“Before working with Good Harvest Marketing, I didn’t have much of a marketing strategy, and had zero knowledge of how important it is.
It piqued my interest how can I use my creativity in this other way, to make my business unique and show my brand and voice. It’s also tailored specifically for interior designers, so there’s a very curated approach to what works best for our industry.
GHM provides an incredible framework and roadmap. Even if you are just starting out, it gives you the knowledge to best market yourself, and empowers you to get the clients you want to work with!“
Lesley Cullen, Lesley Cullen Interior Design
Lesley Cullen Interior Design curates spaces that bring joy to homeowners and match their lifestyles.
“I was unsure how to best market my services. My marketing materials were disorganized, and I didn’t understand how to organize them. I also lacked a cohesive strategy to attract my ideal clients.
GHM understands the interior design business and has the ability to see the gifts of others. Not only do they help you get organized, they can determine what makes you special as an interior designer.
Now, I know the best practices for marketing my services and how to elevate my marketing processes with an organized system in place.”
Dee Dee Lear, Delaney's Design
Delaney’s Design creates 5-star, luxury-resort-style homes in the Dallas-Fort Worth metro area that are inspired by her clients’ personalities and lifestyles.
“Previously I was using the Houzz Pro program, Facebook, and client referrals for lead generation. While there was a level of effectiveness, they were no longer a viable marketing tool for me.
Working with Nona provided more than just the ‘nuts and bolts;’ she took a very personal interest in my business.
She helped me think through business goals and growth strategies, execute necessary implementation, and supported me in staying focused and on task.
GHM has continued to boost my confidence to stay in my ‘ideal client’ space and not get distracted with prospective clients that really are not the best fit for my business.”
Jenna Steckler, Jenna Steckler Interiors
Jenna Steckler owns Jenna Steckler Interiors, a Potomac-based interior design firm that creates elegant homes with an edge in Washington, DC.
“As with the other programs I’ve participated in, I was worried that I would get overwhelmed, and not have enough support to get to the next level. GHM provided the level of accountability and structure I needed to make this work!
GHM is the real deal. You’ll end up spending more money going to someone else to fix your website, but they won’t necessarily speak to your ideal clients. With GHM, they work specifically for interior designers, so they understand me, my goals, and my ideal clients.
More than marketing, you also learn how to nourish your relationships with your clients!”
Jessica Claiborne-Bade, Borne Designs
Jessica Claiborne-Bade is a high-end interior designer in the Texas Hill Country who knows how to “get it done” with a smile… but you never forget who’s in charge when you work with her!
“I was accepting projects and referrals that were causing me to really not enjoy my business, because they picked me… I didn’t pick them.
I was forced to look at the way I was doing business and change what wasn’t working for me. You helped me focus on what worked successfully in my business and finding ways to do that over and over again (aka a system.) I also learned how to grow my business through social media, referrals, and with email marketing.
Now I have better questions on my intake form, I’ve figured out who my ideal clients are and how to connect with them, and have a legit website!”
Judy Burrell, JB Custom Design
Judy partners with busy homeowners in the Las Vegas/Henderson area of Nevada on everything from their home’s foundation to its furniture. Her clients get to enjoy their lives while she takes care of all the details to ensure their projects are completed on time and on budget.
“I was just getting off the ground floor with my new business and there were busy times and slow times; since then the business and I have grown exponentially!
I tend to be very routine and stay with what is comfortable. When realizing that marketing was not in my wheelhouse and made me a little uncomfortable, I needed to have someone that could show me the way.
Since starting [work with you], my business has a steady flow of clients and future business already scheduled. I do not have to advertise, my name is out there and people are coming to me.
I have not had to search for a client in months – in fact, I have my next twelve jobs lined up already!”
Laura Elliott, Refined Interiors
Laura Elliott is the principal of Refined Interiors, a full-service interior design firm based in Berkeley, California that creates showcase homes for showcase lives.
“Interior design is about relationships, and it’s a wonderful part of the business. It’s something that I’ve always wanted to focus on, but I hadn’t put the label of ‘marketing’ on it until I started working with you.
Before, I didn’t think that an ideal client was necessary – I just wanted to be busy. I thought that so long as I can get a project, I’ll be fine.
Now I’m selective about my clients, because I want to ensure I have a wonderful experience when I work on a project. I don’t want to just take any job, where maybe I don’t click with the client. I want a connection.
This was made for me… I’m so glad I did it!“
Melissa Rondon, MJ Studio
Melissa Rondon helps new homeowners transform their first home into their dream home through her San Diego, California-based design firm.
“I was just starting out and didn’t really have a plan of where I was going. GHM helped me build a plan and gave me the tools to get there quickly.
Nona and her team are so supportive – you will get all your questions answered while implementing the building blocks of a strong foundation for your business.“
Amy Curtin, Indigo & Alabaster Design
Indigo & Alabaster Design is a Utah Valley-based full service interior design firm, and Amy Curtin is its CEO and Founder.
“I was overwhelmed with the many aspects of marketing and where I should be placing my focus. You helped me break down what is most effective for connecting with my ideal clients and how to engage them effectively.
I was most unsure about social media and how to use it in my marketing strategies, and you helped me understand where to direct my resources.
The attention to detail specific to my business, coupled with actionable steps for immediate results, was extremely useful since it’s targeted for interior designers and understands both our business advantages and challenges.
I am absolutely thrilled with the help and advice I got while working with you!”
Trish Bonney, TAB Interior Design
Trish Bonney specializes in remodeling spaces in Denver, Colorado for clients starting a new chapter in life.
“My marketing was almost non-existent, and severely lacking. I also needed to know where my target clients are.
I love that GHM didn’t try to force me to make changes, just to make things better while respecting my current practices. There were so many insights that made a huge impact… like showing me where to find my target clients.
I appreciate that you took the time to explain things to fit my needs specifically. That patience and thoughtfulness is so refreshing.”
Iana Plum, Beach Plum Interiors
Beach Plum Interiors transforms the lives of busy professionals in the coastal Massachusetts area.
Beach houses are designed for balance: to provide strength, serenity, and well-being. When life is hectic and fast-paced, you need a retreat to regroup and recharge.
“I love your ability to assist me in bringing the heart and authenticity into my business.
I’m gaining a lot of clarity – having a lot of ah-ha moments – and it feels right. It’s exciting, like I’m finally putting myself first.
People can see a difference in me and my business.
I tell them I have a great business coach specific to interior design – it’s life-changing.”
Barbara Schwarz, Avec Interiors
Barbara Schwartz, principal of Avec Interiors, updates vintage LA homes without sacrificing their unique history.
“I had really closed myself off and wasn’t sure I even wanted to continue to make a go of it. I felt burned out. I had lost some confidence, I did not have pleasure in work, and I often felt taken for granted.
GHM gave me a way to focus on my business and see the potential of it, and has revived my confidence. It helped me focus on what my business is, what I want it to be, and what I need to do to get it there.
I actually started having fun working again!”
Julie Roberts, Thrive Interior Design
Thrive Interior Design creates homes in the Austin, Texas area that feel effortlessly put together, achieving this result by partnering with over-scheduled families to meet all of their challenges, needs and desires.
Whether their goal is an organized, sleek kitchen, a living room where family can gather, or a backyard that’s ready for the neighborhood BBQ, Thrive Interior Design takes the pressure off busy families to work out all of the details on their own so they can make the most of their time together, instead.
“I was just starting out when I started [working with you]; I am still new, but things are growing slowly but surely.
I’ve had three or four initial consultations scheduled already, which is great! I was also nervous about charging for them, but everybody paid.
I have really enjoyed learning from you all as much as I have! The tools and time hacks you provide are useful and necessary for any small business owner.”
Ann McCoy, Red Door Design
Red Door Design helps well-traveled, sophisticated homeowners in the Chicagoland area with thoughtful, inventive, and “unique-to-you” residential interior design.
“I have always had a steady stream of clients, but I needed to up my game. With the interior design field rapidly changing with social media and new ways to interact with clients, I needed a system in place to get me organized and on point.
I loved the interaction with Nona. I felt like I was working with an old friend that was always positive and down to earth. She knew when to push me and gently nudge me to get things done.
Whether you are just starting out or if you’ve been in the business for many years, Good Harvest Marketing will get you on the right track: from identifying your company’s voice, to who you WANT your clients to be, from tracking your marketing tools, to presenting a fresh look on your business. This takes care of it all.”
Jamilah Mottley Brown, JM Interior Stylings
Jamilah Mottley Brown is the owner and principal designer of JM Interior Stylings, a full-service interior design firm based in Chicago that designs homes and offices that are works of art, sources of joy, and providers of comfort.
“Working together [with Nona and GHM] helped me shift my lens on my value, pricing, and business systems. It was incredible, since tailored help for interior designers is hard to find.
Before, marketing my business was a chore and stressful, but now the guesswork is removed and I’m focused on what needs to happen, instead of trying to create things all by myself.
All I can say to my fellow designers is: this is what you’ve been wishing for!”
Stephanie Hron, Ginger Blu Design
With more than 25-years’ experience working with clients ranging from global franchises to signature boutique restaurants, Ginger Blu Design helps restaurateurs open their doors on time, every time.
“I was just taking any type of residential and commercial projects that came my direction. They were not even close to my ideal client. Working with GHM really encouraged me to answer a lot of questions about my current business model that was not necessarily working for me.
The entire process really gave me the clarity to move forward. Nona and Grael are experts, and can save you a lot of time and money trying to figure this out on your own to save a few bucks.
Trial-and-error can be very costly – designers need to spend time designing, not trying to figure out marketing.”
Tanya Shively, Sesshu Design Associates
Tanya’s built her reputation as a designer creating healthy homes in Scottsdale, Arizona, using materials that are free of the toxins that can bring on respiratory problems, allergic reactions, headaches, and other health issues in a home’s inhabitants.
“I was looking for someone who could help me streamline my message across all my marketing platforms.
I also wanted to work with someone who spoke the same marketing language I did, and Nona was the perfect fit.
Having an outside view on what my message is and who my ideal client is helped me get more clear myself.
I had been trying to piece it together but over the years the message just got more muddy.
Nona’s understanding and clarification on my message was spot on.”
Michaeline Fernandez, Butter & Velvet Home and Design
Butter & Velvet is a family-owned, heart-driven design and lifestyle business guided by the principles of transforming a house into a home that welcomes family and friends alike.
“Love, love, working with Nona! We hired GHM because we’d come to a marketing crossroads – we’d moved into a much bigger storefront and wanted to get our marketing going ASAP!
We loved working with Nona because she understands who we are and how to use marketing to really connect with our interior design clients and store customers.”
Christine Newes, Christine Interiors
Christine creates homes that speak for themselves. Her clients live in the New Jersey area, and they depend on her to make their dreams come to life through design.
“As an interior designer, I don’t know the ins and outs of marketing, so Nona’s ability to step in and take over was the real benefit.
She was enthusiastic, encouraging, and very knowledgeable in helping me.
Nona is very easy to work with, she responded back to me right away when I had questions or concerns, and was an incredible support.”
Terri Taylor, Interior Design Business Academy
Interior Design Business Academy provides information, education, workshops, business tools and mentoring to high-achieving interior designers and decorators who are serious about bringing their creative gifts to the world in a big way.
“Interior Design Business Academy is a fast-paced business with weekly newsletters, bimonthly marketing campaigns, and multiple training calls and webinars each quarter.
Nona has helped keep all of my marketing efforts on task and on time, and her copywriting skills have saved me hours and days of writing.
Nona’s dedication to help solve IDBA’s marketing challenges in her efficient, effective, and friendly manner makes it all that much better. I can depend on her to do what she says, when she says it, and know that she’s really on my team.”
