• Anyone who cares about the manner in which they decorate their spaces and who is looking to create environments that fill them with a spark of joy, hope, and beauty will benefit from this course.
You don’t need a design trend, you need an oasis for your soul.Your house can’t nurture, inspire, or motivate you if it doesn’t reflect those who live there. Most people don’t know this instinctively. There is often a gap between a beautifully decorated home and one that feels good to be in. Meaningful aesthetics fill the void; they are powerful in stirring up our emotional and physical responses to the spaces we spend time in. Home dwellers face the overwhelm of creating a home that feels good; one that feeds their soul, fills them with joy, and replenishes their energy.Your guests can’t feel welcome when you’re uncomfortable in your own space.Hi, I’m Jody Pear. I guide people through home and office transformations. I’ve designed kitchen renovations, floor plans, furniture arrangements, accessory placement, and color selections. I’ve worked with homeowners and office workers to add more joy into their space so visitors feel welcome and occupants feel more comfortable.How I Can Help YouWhat do you love and hate about your home or work space? How do you want to feel when you’re there?I use my professional interior design skills and empathetic nature to guide you so that you feel confident in transforming your space into one that reflects who you are and fills you with joy.I created various services so that you don’t have to feel uncertain or overwhelmed by the design process. Now you can experience the art of designing and decorating with intention, in a manner that expresses who You are instead of the latest trend. My BackgroundI am an expert in storytelling through the process of decorating, an internationally trained House-Coach, a professional interior designer, trained by Maria Killam in the SYSTEM for Specifying Colour®, author of The Art of Decorating with Intention (A guidebook in creating an oasis for your soul) and a video course, creator of photo collages that I call Soul Snapshots, and author of various other books.I spoke about Designing Life With A Purpose with Color Blind Magazine.I presented at the Soul Oasis and Vision Board Workshop with Megan Gunnell, and was featured in the Grosse Pointe News.My fascination with storytelling through decorating has been my natural inclination since childhood. It wasn’t until I discovered a tool used in Feng Shui, called the Bagua Map, and my training as a House-Coach that I discovered a way to systemize and teach this to others. It has all evolved into what Jody Pear Designs offers today, once again proving that my mom was right when she said, “Jody’s a late bloomer.”I live in Grosse Pointe Woods where I love to spend time on Lake St. Clair nearly every day in the warm months.
