“I doubled my revenue in under a year!”


Julianna Mathers

Residential Interior Designer | Dallas, TX

Your designs are beautiful but...

You’re struggling to grow


I’ll show you how to build a business that unleashes your brilliance, so you can work less, earn more, and learn to love the “business side” of interior design
(or at the very least — not hate it!)

Figuring out how to run an interior design business is  hard!


When I was just getting started, snooty-patooty designers wouldn’t share their business secrets to help me grow, so I built much of my business on trial and error.

I took any client who came my way, and too many were a nightmare.

Nit-picking every detail, shopping around for cheaper furniture, texting at all hours of the night. They'd ask for free advice before signing their contract, try to take control of project timelines, and the worst part... Balk at my already low fees.

I also had no idea how to properly charge for my services or run a design project efficiently.

Which led to endless revisions and wasted time, redoing work for free that was already done well, leaking money everywhere. I was constantly overwhelmed. Plus, working a lot while getting paid very little.

Imagine trying to bake a cake without a recipe.

You kind of know what the ingredients are but you don’t know how to put it all together. After lots of hard work, all you’re left with is a sticky situation and a stomach ache.

This program teaches you how to bake your interior design business-cake and eat it too!

Here are the ingredients for a  profitable design business:

01

Attracting high quality clients

... who see the value in paying a premium to work with you (& respect your boundaries)

02

Charging Premium Design Fees

Not including the profits you should be pocketing from selling furniture, procurement, and installation

03

Running Streamlined Projects

... while catering to your client’s needs and keeps you fully in charge (while you manage a million details!)

And here's the good news...

This has all been figured out already. No need to create it all from scratch, Babe!

The Interior Design Business Bakery will help you master all  three.

Great design requires attention to detail

So do great businesses.

DEFINE YOUR SIGNATURE STYLE

You’ll attract better clients when they know what you stand for. I’ll show you how to design a simple but striking presence that draws in the top shelf clients.

ATTRACT THE BEST CLIENTS

Marketing your business is overwhelming. I’ll show you how to make it easy. You’ll get my simple strategies for getting the “Google Juice” flowing, so you spend the least time to attract the best clients for you.

COPY MY SALES PROCESS

Time to get clients to happily pay top dollar for your services. From the intro call to the scope of work to the contract to the presentation, you’ll learn my (never sales-y or stuffy!) sales process — including how to create various options to help you close even the most hesitant client.

GET PAID PREMIUM DESIGN FEES

Stop trading time for money. I’ll show you how to get clients to pay rates that reflect your talent, not their budget. Then, I’ll give you my easy process for calculating your fees, while building profits into every step of your project, from furniture to procurement to installation.

RUN PROJECTS WITH PRECISION

Even if you charge premium fees, you can’t outwork a bad process. Time is money, even though you won’t be charging hourly. You’ll get to adopt our incredible design processes, business templates, client boundaries, and company policies that keep you from losing your mind.

DOWNLOADS AND TEMPLATES

Dozens of downloads and templates (from Newsletters to swipe files for blog post titles and sample contracts)  to make your own. Simply copy and paste your brand logo onto my simple templates and make them your own — no more stress on your end.

Hi, I’m Michelle!


I’m the owner of the successful interior design firm ML Interiors Group and coach to both new and experienced interior designers.

When I started my firm, it took me a while to figure out how to run an interior design business profitably - without running myself into the ground.

Once I figured out the secret sauce — simple, elegant processes for doing great work and making great money — I knew I had to share it with other designers, since no one was willing to do that for me.

With me by your side, you’ll have everything you need to build a beautiful, profitable design business you love — one that will love you back!

Michelle has the business chops to coach you to profitability and get your business in  tip top shape!

Before I became an interior designer, I managed multi-million dollar businesses in Corporate America and learned what worked and what didn’t. (Luckily, I was using other people’s money back then! Haha!)

In 2008, I started my biz, bought a house, got married to #thehandsomehubs (aka Brian), and the market crashed. It was a busy year. Not to mention, I was still working a full-time job!

I run a 7-figure interior design firm to this day. I’m in the trenches, so everything I share with you in this mentorship program is up-to-date and currently working well for us. As my team and I change things, I’ll change them for you.

I’ve been featured in Forbes, Texasliving, Dallas Morning News, This Old House, DHome, Scout Guide, and Candy’sDirt.com.

I was invited to be an expert speaker at the Interior Design Society (IDS) National Convention and Design Biz Retreat 2020 (and the only speaker invited back for 2021!).

I am the 2021 IDS Dallas Chapter Secretary.

I’m a toddler mom at 50 years old and am not just surviving but thriving! 

As seen in

Let's make your brand the Mercedes Benz of the design world, so you can...

Command premium fees and attract higher quality clients

Lots of designers struggle to get their business off the ground because they’re not charging enough. One of the first things I teach my designers is how to charge premium prices.

Your brand can either be a Mazda or a Mercedes. Both will get you from Point A to Point B but one gets you there in comfort and style.

If you want to be able to charge high-end fees, you don’t need to have money. All you need is to feel comfortable in a luxurious environment. I call it having a “rich mindset.”

It starts with knowing you’ve got the talent and drive to be an amazing designer… but it ends with believing you can grow your business to great heights — and that starts with building a rich mindset.

This is just one of many mindset lessons you’ll learn inside Interior Design Business Bakery.

(Oh and P.S. You shouldn’t be able to afford your own design services. If you can, you’re charging too little!)

  • How to market your business and attract top shelf clients who bring the best projects (and the best budgets!) to the table
  • How to give your clients an experience so special and personal that they refer you to all of their friends & family

12 months of group coaching lessons from Michelle

Learn the exact steps for adding additional revenue streams to your business and providing a better outcome for your client, just by charging appropriately for the work you’re already doing.

  • How to shop to the trade (not just Home Goods), set up accounts, and negotiate better pricing, so you can create better designs, accelerate your reputation, improve your portfolio, and attract better clients
  • How to shop the wholesale markets like a boss. I’ll show you how to profit on the sale of every piece of furniture in your beautiful designs while making the highest margins

Think of me as your business sherpa.


Together we’re going to climb “Mt. Everest” — building a profitable interior design business.

You’re already on the right path, you just need a sherpa-guide to tell you what to pack, what to leave behind, and how to navigate the trail so you don’t *figuratively* slide down the mountain and die.

I’ll show you the way. It may be hard work on the way up, but the view will be totally worth it.

Imagine what you’ll be able to do when your interior design business runs like clockwork...

  • Work with perfect-match clients who adore the professionalism of your design process
  • Command premium design fees, plus get paid on all the extras you provide throughout the design experience
  • Feel confident about being able to run your business in a state of ease and grace, not running around like a chicken with your head cut off!
  • Explain your process and your fees to clients so they truly understand all the hard work that goes into their design and feel happy to pay your premium design fees
  • Craft a luxurious experience for your clients from the first phone call to the final walkthrough
  • Take time off without continual interruptions with a bank balance you can celebrate

That’s what we aim to achieve inside Interior Design Business Bakery.
