Welcome to
Return on Interiors!

We’ve taken a very complex process–which is interior design– and turned it into a manageable system. So that even though the spaces you design will always be different,  your approach will always be the same.

ROI is a comprehensive interior design business system. With it, designers can show up at every step in the process prepared and professional!

(Love that alliteration!)

Having a system gives designers confidence when asking for higher fees by taking away those nagging fears about missing a detail,  freeing up more time for design.

(You know. The thing that’s loved the most, yet addressed the last.)

 

That’s what ROI is all about.

IT’S A HUGE ADDED VALUE FOR MY CLIENTS.

My clients are empowered by the takeaway tools the ROI System provides, and it increases their comfort level with the process. I can’t even imagine the hundreds of hours it would have taken me to create tools like this, and by purchasing the ROI System, I got everything in a plug and play package.”

Kathleen's work has been featured in:

Hi there! I’m Kathleen DiPaolo,

an interior designer who's flipped hundreds of houses, a licensed California Realtor, and I also have my MBA.

And because I understand the world of design and the world of business, I’m able to be your best friend in any design project- new build or renovation.  

By navigating both worlds, translating their nuances, their confusing languages, and their many other mysteries, I was able to create a comprehensive system for running an interior design business.

Believe me, I have made all the mistakes, and to avoid repeating them, I developed the Return on Interiors (ROI) system for myself —but because my mother taught me not to be selfish, I’m sharing it with you.

But kidding aside, using this system has let me hone my design process, create client trust, and increase my ability to charge more for my work.

Return on Interiors shows you exactly how to design and work with your clients and your team, with your vendors and manufacturers, and with your architects and builders, tradespeople and artisans.

The result? In every situation, you get to show up feeling like the confident pro that you are (or always hoped you’d be!)

With the right project management, intake forms, questionnaires, and systems in place, you can get back to what you love most— design.

ROI gives you the benefits of a professionally developed business system that’s tailored for YOUR business.

RETURN ON INTERIORS HAS STREAMLINED THE PROCESS BY ALLOWING ME TO GATHER ALL OF THE INFORMATION INTO ONE ORGANIZED SYSTEM FOR EACH JOB.

There are so many decisions to be made in each phase of construction and having a reference guide to make sure you have not forgotten a step is invaluable.

For clients, the system allows them to easily track their spending, keep all of their information in one place and know that their job is being managed professionally and in an organized manner. The reference guides and tips are an added bonus and great to help you think through the final functionality of each space.

Return on Interiors has raised the professional level of my client management system and I love showing up organized and ready for every job!”
