About Elegant Strategies


NancyNancy McPherson is a Canadian Certified Staging Professional® and a Certified Colour Consultant®, and owns Elegant Strategies for your home. Located in Ottawa, Ontario, she is a seasoned event planner and organizer, with many years of experience in the private, public, non-profit and volunteer sectors. She has a proven track record of getting things done. Her passion for colour, art and interior decor goes back to her first trip to Europe as a young girl.

Nancy prides herself on her ability to stage occupied homes; she uses or ‘redeploys’ as much of a client’s furniture and accessories as possible. This keeps rental charges to a minimum. Rental fees are what deter many people from considering professional staging — a monthly charge for furniture when you don’t know how long your home will be on the market? This expense can be minimized by a creative professional home stager. Nancy has the know-how and the passion to make the most of your home; if furniture and accessories are in good condition and will help you sell, they, and not rentals, will be used. Clients working with Nancy will be able to keep the home ‘livable but lovely‘ while it’s on the market.

Nancy is a member of Certified Staging Professionals®. She is a member of both the Ottawa chapter of RESA™ (the Real Estate Staging Association) and RESA™ in California.  She also belongs to the Ottawa Women’s Canadian Club.​ You can find her on Houzz, under ‘Find a Pro’, and then ‘Home Stagers’ in the Ottawa profiles.

Elegant Strategies will help you make the most of your home.​ Service is available within the City of Ottawa – Westboro, the Glebe, Sandy Hill, New Edinburgh, Rockliffe, Nepean, Bells Corners, Kanata, Gloucester, Barrhaven, Orleans and Navan.
