I love my DIY-ers! You know who you are. You’re amazing, creative, and you know how to get in the details of your design project. You’re magic that way and it’s part of your DNA.

I’ve put together a package of books and services that’s ideal for you.

The DIY Healthcare Design Kit is two of my books sold together as one package: The Waiting Room Cure and The Color Cure 2.0 books + a pretty sweet discount.

You have the option of pre-paying for an hour of my time, too, when you purchase. This is a way for you to get my eyes and feedback on your DIY design work, and it’s an inspired, fun, awesome hour. We get a lot done. We get together on a video call and go over every question, every furniture placement, every color choice before, during, or after implementation.

It’s your choice.


I LOVED The Color Cure! I stayed up late one night and devoured the whole book in one sitting instead of going to bed at a sensible time. It was wonderful to be able to just buy paint and skip that multiple sample nonsense that goes with painting a room a new color.

Cheryl's knowledge, insight and skill helped me create a beautiful and comforting environment for my team, my clients and patients! The wisdom she reveals in her latest book, The Waiting Room Cure, is your DIY opportunity to use those expert tools and knowledge to upgrade your own space to one you and your patients will truly love! What a gift!

The Color Cure is amazing! The depth of knowledge Cheryl has and how she easily presents it to create beautiful spaces is truly magical.

We were under super tight deadlines to pick paint, carpet and baseboards for our new acupuncture clinic buildout. The Color Cure was an immense help in breaking down how different colors affect people on an emotional level. It really helped us narrow down the paint choices to a manageable color palette.

This is amazing and so easy to digest! We all know the value of word-of-mouth and Cheryl makes it very clear in The Waiting Room Cure that those referrals can happen as soon as your patient walks into your office. The book lays out all the steps you need and the best part is that she keeps your budget in mind! This book is your golden ticket to massively boosting your patient visits and revenues.

In The Waiting Room Cure, Cheryl Janis lays out a blueprint and offers practical steps to help you turn up irresistible in your medical space. You cannot argue the evidence that design matters when inside medical offices you see up to an 85% increase in patient retention rates within the first year of the completion of a medical office redesign. Physicians must understand that "design" speaks louder than words ever will. They must visualize that their staff's attitude can color every aspect of their practice as well. The Waiting Room Cure is like a personal paintbrush all medical professionals can use to impact patient care and keep patients returning and referring.

The Color Cure 2.0 and Cheryl’s complete bundle are playful and inspiring. Cheryl goes through some simple ways to bring color into your clinic and your life. Don’t let the simplicity fool you though, because these ideas and color schemes can have a big impact on your overall wellbeing. 

Fresh and focused color goes a long way to creating a calm and clear atmosphere. I love how Cheryl talks about balancing warm and cool colors and then invites you to paint your ceiling.

I have used Cheryl’s advice and loved the results. She has taught me how to use color as a vibration. Now that information is clearly laid out in this book. I recommend The Color Cure 2.0 to help enliven your relationship with the walls and ceilings in your life.

In her ebook The Color Cure 2.0, Cheryl Janis shares her best design secrets. She outlines facets of design elements that make the process of selecting color less intimidating. Cheryl brings a sense of practicability to her design concepts and this will definitely be my go-to guide for enhancing my herbal apothecary. Thank you Cheryl.

I highly recommend The Waiting Room Cure by Cheryl Janis to any healthcare practitioner! The book itself is a visual treat filled with exquisite examples of waiting room designs that serve as great inspiration. Cheryl breaks down the process of designing and decorating a waiting room into simple, clear steps, which makes it easy to understand and implement. This book is a must-have for any healthcare professional that wants to DIY their own patient-centered waiting room with confidence.

1) Who is this DIY Kit for?

Physicians, dentists, healthcare professionals and solopreneurs, and wellness business owners who are limited by a budget and desire easy, practical and reliable paint color guidance for their healing environment.

2) Who is this book not for?

Doctors, dentists, wellness business owners and solopreneur healthcare professionals who don’t believe in the transformative power of an intelligent new paint color or who don’t want to repaint their spaces.

3) Is this book a replacement for working with a color expert?

Yes and no.

Yes, if you are on a shoestring budget and can’t afford to hire a color expert to help you select a specific color palette for your space.

And no, because, really, this book is a compliment to a color consultation. It will introduce you to the benefits of healing colors, offer you a list of specific selections to choose from and get your mind thinking about how you want your wellness space or healthcare office to look and feel. That information is very useful to share with your colorist or healthcare interior designer.

4) How long is the book?

The book contains 192 pages with 27 intelligent paint colors, carefully curated for your wellness space and 91 illustrations of paint colors in waiting rooms, treatment rooms, bathrooms and healthcare offices.

5) What is the difference between The Color Cure 2.0 book only and The Complete Bundle package apart an additional $43 bucks for the TCB?

A lot. For that extra $43 bucks you get this:

  • 22 Delicious Paint Color Recipes For Healthcare and Wellness Spaces PLUS 3 Bonus Colors
  • 9 Perfect Grays For Your Next Paint Project and How to Use Them in Healthcare and Wellness Spaces
  • A Guide to Selecting the Best Paint Colors for your Existing or New Carpet and Flooring
  • The Companion Color Cure 2.0 Cheat Sheet
  • Color Troubleshooting Guide – Answers To Common Questions About Paint Color Problems

6) How long will it take me to read the book?

It depends on how fast of a reader you are. You might devour it quickly in one evening or you might savor it and read it slowly over time, absorbing the information at your own pace. Or, you might just skip to one chapter first, if, for example, you are looking for that perfect blue paint color for your waiting room. If you power through it, you can read this book over a relaxing lunch.

7) Does the book teach me color theory?

No. There are plenty of books out there that can do that for you. Instead, I offer you specific paint colors I have used in healthcare spaces over the past fifteen years that are key in creating a welcoming, friendly and safe space your patients, clients and your team love. I share my experiences with illustrations that save you time and money trying to come up with the best color palettes and/or correcting costly color mistakes in the future.

8) Will the book help me if I help me if I have only one room?

Yes! This book will help you no matter how many rooms you have in your healthcare office, clinic or wellness space.

9) Will the book make me feel like a dummy because I don’t know anything about color?

No, it won’t. I understand how overwhelming it can be to select the right colors for your wellness or healthcare business regardless if you are first starting out in a brand new space or are in the process of redesigning an old space you’ve been in for years.

This book is easy to read and understand. There are beautiful extra-large images of spaces with different paint colors so you can see how the colors look in a space similar to yours.

10) What if I hate the book and want my money back?

No problem. I offer a 100%, no-questions-asked money back guarantee.

11) What format does the book come in? What devices can I read it on?

The book comes in a .PDF format which you can download right onto your computer, tablet or phone. The pictures will look best on your large computer screen.
