Affordable Interior Design founder Betsy Helmuth honed her home-decorating skills during stints as an HGTV designer and an apprenticeship with Queer Eye For the Straight Guy’s Thom Filicia. During two 1.5-hour classes, the furnishings fashionista imparts hard-won design wisdom with an eye to saving students’ dimes. In Big Design, Small Budget: Beautifying Your Home For Less, Betsy shares tips for creating a high-end look on a budget, getting the most out of retailers, and rearranging your home's exterior windows to form a toothy grin. Students glean tips on mixing and matching patterns and artwork during the Styling Your Home: Accessorizing with Art, Window Treatments, Paint, and More! class designed for application to personal abodes. With a knowing smile, Betsy pauses during each session to answer patrons’ questions, such as how to pair wallpaper with sconces and which throw pillows have the most aerodynamic shape.

Affordable Interior Design

Betsy Helmuth, the owner and operator of Affordable Interior Design, started off studying visual art and theatre at Macalester College. After graduation, she moved to New York City and was commissioned to paint custom pieces and murals. Realizing that the spaces in which she worked needed a focused design concept rather than just a few pieces of great art, she turned her focus to interior design. To that end, she sought formal interior design training, and her portfolio won her an internship at Thom Filicia, Inc., the designer from Queer Eye for the Straight Guy.

After leaving her internship she opened Affordable Interior Design, a firm that gives clients of all budget levels the chance to create a beautiful space reflective of who they are. When she's not working with clients, she has made appearances on the TODAY Show, HGTV, DIY Network, CBS, and NBC.

Customer Reviews

fun teacher who was able to get her points across clearly.
Yoonjung K. · January 29, 2014
I've been interested in interior design for a couple years so when I saw a Groupon deal (Up to 63% Off Interior Design Classes) for Affordable Interior Design, I immediately jumped at the chance and bought 2 classes for $65. My first class was "Big Design, Small Budget: Beautifying Your Home for Less with Betsy Helmuth." I absolutely loved it for the following reasons: * Betsy is highly exciting, funny, quirky, and charismatic. She made the class super fun and invigorating. I found myself laughing a lot at her jokes and thinking to myself "Wow, how does Betsy have so much energy?" You rock Betsy! * This class is great for beginners who know absolutely nothing about design and want to beaut
