As the Principal Decorator and Stylist at Staging4Life, I consult with residential, retail and corporate clients to colour and style their spaces for life and work. The goal is to stage a space, not with the objective of selling it, but rather to continue to enjoy the space: to live and work their best life in it. Hence the name: Staging4Life.
After graduating from Seneca College, Audio Visual Techniques and Multi-Media Productions Program, I started my career in the television production and post-production industry in Toronto, Ontario working with Feature Film, Television and Commercial clients.
Later, after becoming a licensed Realtor with the Toronto Real Estate Board, I continued my education at Seneca College in Home Staging, Colour Theory, Organizing for Living, and Digital Photography. My visual flair, eye for colour, and natural interior decorating talents came forward when staging clients' homes.
Inevitably, once I helped clients stage their homes for sale they could see the beauty in their homes once again. In fact, they often expressed that if they had staged their house before listing it, they may have decided to stay. That’s when I realized that my true passion wasn’t to help people buy or sell their homes; I wanted to help them be happy, healthy and more productive in their current spaces.
This led me to study Colour Consulting at QC Design School, with Jane Lockhart, award winning interior designer, television personality and author. I acquired an in-depth knowledge of the psychology of colour, and became certified as an International Colour Consulting Professional (ICCP). From there I moved on to acquire my certification as International Design & Decorating Professional (IDDP). Two proud moments for me were being selected as the winner of the QC Design School “Home for the Holidays” Design Contest & receiving an Award of Merit for submission of an excellent assignment demonstrating technical skill and a hight level of creative ability.
Throughout the years one thing has remained constant, and that is my passion for helping others. I get an incredible feeling of satisfaction when I see the smiles on the faces of my clients. I have realized my true calling and draw upon my experience, training and passion to help my residential, retail and corporate clients with their colour consulting, decorating and visual merchandising challenges.
