Plus, they give great reviews of a variety of home decorating products!

The Decorating Diva was founded by Carmen Natschke, the award-winning designer and co-founder of Room In A Kit LLC. In 2002 the parent company decided to spin off a sister company of Room In A Kit LLC by launching The Decorating Divas workshops where students learned everything from how to faux paint to how to accessorize like a professional decorator. At each workshop, dozens of students asked about online decorating and buying resources and The Decorating Diva online magazine was born from those requests!
