The Insiders Club
Creating a beautiful Scandinavian-inspired home just got easier, and much more fun!
The Insiders Club is a membership that provides curated inspiration, expert advice, practical tips, resources, and mentoring so you can finally learn how to execute the look you want, eliminate the guesswork, and make confident design decisions – No matter where or how you live.
Hi! I’m Catherine.
Over the last 10 years of running Nordic Design and being an interior design consultant, I got to know the ins and outs of the business of decorating.
I also figured out two awesome truths: 1) Everything can be learned, even good taste and 2) most people already have a great sense of style, they simply need a little direction.
The IC is for you if you’re curious, eager to train your eye to observe and understand what you like and why, and how to make your vision a reality – Especially if that’s a beautiful, bright, simple, and modern Scandinavian-inspired look that feels like you.
Join us! I can’t wait to connect with you.
– Do you have an idea of what you want your home to look like, but you’re not sure where to begin and HOW to make it happen?
– Do you feel ‘stuck’ when it comes to putting the final touches to your décor, to make it look complete and cohesive?
– Do you sometimes feel overwhelmed with all the options available and worried about making a wrong and costly decision?
– Do you wish you had professional design help, like a mentor or a coach, to guide you and answer your questions?

Overall I’m comfortable with the setup and I can’t wait to see how the Insiders Club evolves over time. Dzifa” – Dzifa, United States
That’s a lot of information – Thanks for hanging in there with me! Still, you may have questions, so here are some important ones to know about as you consider joining.
Q – How is the content reserved for the Insiders Club different from what is currently available on Nordic Design?
A: The Insiders Club is like having an interior design coach in your browser! It’s all about how to execute the interior design you want. Members have access to How-To articles, product roundups, ‘Get the looks’, trend reports, décor advice, quick wins, and other content that takes a deep dive into how to achieve a beautiful Scandinavian home. And like a coach, a mentor, and a friend, I’ll be there all along to guide you and to cheer you on!
Q – Why did you create the Insiders Club?
A: There is a wealth of inspiration and information out there, but it doesn’t always translate well into the reality of our daily lives (and homes). It takes A LOT of time to weed out what is actually useful and valuable, and what we find is often fragmented and/or just scratches the surface of a topic. And even if you exactly knew what to look for in the first place, it is easy to go down the rabbit hole of Pinterest or Google Search…
With the Insiders Club, you can skip the research, cut through the noise, and save yourself the guesswork and a trial & error approach because I am giving you curated, quality information; I put it into context and help you make sense of it, so you can understand it and implement it the right way, move forward, and get results faster. Together we go beyond the information and focus on the implementation and transformation, following what I learned and experienced throughout the years. You will become infinitely better at decorating, with strengthened confidence to make the right design decisions for you.
So if you are looking for inspiration, refined aesthetic, speed, knowledge, experience, fun, new ideas, and a fresh perspective, the Insiders Club is for you.
Q – Is there a cost to join the Insiders Club?
A: Yes. Our member pricing is $19/month or $190/year. Members can cancel their subscriptions at any time. Prices are in CAD, which is approximately…
USD: $14/month or $140/year
EUR: €12/month or €120/year
GBP: £11/month or £110/year
AUD: $19/month or $190/year
Q – Is it worth it?
With the Insiders Club, you get curated inspiration, education, support, and professional input on your home for $0.52/day. What’s more with a membership you have access to discount codes at a few vetted online retailers, where you can save up to 20% off awesome design and potentially earn back your membership price.
Would it be worth it to you if all the Insiders Club did was to give you the clarity and confidence to make the right design decisions? Would it be worth it if you saved tons of time by knowing what to get (and where) to create the look you want or how to make the most of what you already have? What if all it did was allowing you to connect with a group of people on the same path as you are, design nerds and neophytes alike, all with a goal to create a better home? Would it be worth it? You decide, but I know where I stand on this one ;)
Q – Do I have access to past months’ content?
A: Yes, you do! All premium content is accessible through your own dashboard, extended archive, and in the custom navigation menu for logged-in members. New articles are added regularly!
Q – I don’t live in the United States or Canada. Is it still relevant for me to join?
A: Absolutely! We have members from all around the world. I do my best to vary the sources, and that the tools and resources are suitable for you no matter your location. Also, I created a Sourcebook with recommended online shops in different regions of the world to facilitate your search. Plus, I am always available to help you find the product or an alternative near you.
The Insiders Club is not just a shopping guide – The goal is to learn how to make the most of your current home, get a fresh perspective and new ideas for improvements, and make simple changes. I also like to recommend products from large, affordable retailers like Ikea and HM Home, because a great style doesn’t have to come with a hefty price tag.
Q – I don’t like white walls and I don’t have the budget to buy new furniture. How can the Insiders Club be useful?
A: There are many misconceptions about what Scandinavian interiors should look like (and too many checklists for cookie-cutter looks)… but creating a beautiful, bright, and Nordic-inspired home goes way beyond ‘hygge’ and sheepskin throws. And that is what we are going to explore on this journey together in the Insiders Club.
I’ll show you how to work with what you have, and share practical tips to easily implement in your home. Over time, we’ll cover each room of the house as well as address frequent challenges, like how to make a home brighter, small space solutions, budget finds, and so much more.
Q – What if the membership is not for me?
A: If you do not feel the membership is for you, you can cancel anytime easily. And the fun begins here with a risk-free 14-day money-back guarantee! After two weeks, if you don’t feel totally confident and inspired, simply reach out to me and I’ll refund your investment. You will continue to have access to the Insiders Club until the end of that rolling month/year, depending on your membership period.
