About me

Erika Lee

Meet the Owner - Erika

I have been decorating since I was 10 years old. I always had the urge to move furniture, squish paint and create with fabric. I have a measuring tape and level in my brain – weird, but I understand it now. While I was a single parent and drowning in the 9-5 office jobs I found the courage to start my own Decorating Den business on my 40th birthday. Now, 15 years later, I take my passion for decorating into YOUR home. Many of my clients turn into friends as decorating someone’s home is such a PERSONAL thing. I am lucky that this career feels more like play than a job…I wish everyone could feel so fortunate.

As an interior designer, a major part of my job is to make the process stress-free for you. Whether you’re a busy professional or a retiree, you wouldn’t want to spend endless hours working on your home to make it comfortable, and I’ll make sure that you don’t have to. Leave all the planning, ordering and execution to me so that the creation of a beautiful space doesn’t interfere with your life or the time you spend doing what you love.

Bringing cost saving options to the table and having an “outside the box” approach, my clients find that working with me will give them a space that is a true reflection of THEMSELVES… not a carbon copy of their neighbors’ homes… or mine. There are so many ideas floating around my mind it’s nearly impossible to have a cookie cutter design style…it’s all about YOU!

Something I DO hear clients say is “I would never have thought of that!” and I respond “That’s why I’m here”. Thank you for Decorating BEAUTIFULLY with Erika Lee!

… and one of the best decorators I know, my mom!

My customers establish their budget and I educate them on product quality, construction and design. I can work with people who just want decorating ideas, help with one window or furnish an entire home. No project is too big or too small. We can also work on a strictly consultative basis if that’s all that you need.  I’m here to make decorating easy and enjoyable for you.

Working with me you will find I am non-judgmental, unpretentious, creative, professional, budget conscious, fun, personable and real. Just ask your friends who have worked with me.

I cover the entire Greater Cincinnati area, and also have availability in the Greater Dayton and Greater Columbus areas. Further out than that? We can easily do a virtual consultation. I don’t let the East/West or Ohio/Kentucky/Indiana lines scare me. I come to YOU and turn your house into your home! I’m right around the corner. Let’s schedule a time to get together, collaborate ideas and have some fun!

Decorating Den Certified Designer

“Over the years I’ve made many improvements to keep my home fresh and bright. Whether it’s a small redo with paint colors and decor in a hall entryway or a kitchen remodel or a living room DIY, I always get Erika involved. She helps turn my ideas into reality – or starts with a blank page – the results are always AMAZING!”

 – Penney M.

“Erika not only brings her own expertise to the design but is great at  interpreting my life style & my taste and putting it all together.  Erika wants my home to be its very best & it is. I love her ability to use what I already own & suggesting new things that elevate the overall look. This is my second home Erika, of Decorating Den, has done all of my window treatments, arranged furniture & hung wall art along with many other aspects of design. She makes it & takes it personal, the results are the proof. Many thanks to Erika.”

“Erika is fabulous! I have a large living room with a 15′ ceiling. The picture window in the living room has a beautiful view and the windows go from floor to ceiling (about 15′). I was just stumped on how to decorate my large room and make the view be the focal point. Erika met with me and instantly was able to help me put my ideas and “wants” into a structured plan. She really took the time to listen to me and to capture what was important to me. My family “lives” in this living room–I wanted it to be classy and put together without being stuffy and unapproachable. The room is finished, and I can truly say that Erika checked every box that mattered to me. My room is gorgeous and pulls the whole house together. Erika was easy to work with–so responsive and she really cared about the final product. I whole-heartedly recommend her services.”
