Hi — If you’re stopping by in December 2019, I’m officially retired at the end of this month. It’s been an interesting experience for the last 6 years, staging and decorating in Ottawa. If you are booked for a Christmas job this month, don’t worry — I will honour all my commitments for this Christmas. And I’ll have information on a colleague who is taking on the mantle of Christmas decorator. Thanks for checking out Elegant Strategies for your home one last time. Merry Christmas and all the best to you and yours, Nancy.
Hello! Thanks for stopping by —
I’m a Certified Canadian Staging Professional® and a Certified Colour Consultant®, and my company is Elegant Strategies for your home. Located in Ottawa, Ontario, I am an experienced home stager. In my previous life, I was an event planner and organizer, with experience in the private, public, non-profit and volunteer sectors. This has contributed greatly to my project management skills. Above all, I am passionate about helping clients make the most of their home.
I pride myself on my ability to stage occupied homes. I use or ‘redeploy’ as much of a client’s furniture and accessories as possible. This keeps your rental charges to a minimum. Rental fees are what deter many people from considering professional staging — “a monthly charge for furniture when I don’t know how long my home will be on the market? No way!” This expense can be minimized by a creative professional home stager. I have the knowledge and the commitment to make the most of your home; if your existing furniture and accessories are in good condition and will help you sell, they, and not rentals, will be used. I do everything possible to keep your home ‘livable but lovely‘ while it’s on the market.
Want to learn more about Elegant Strategies? I’m an experienced public speaker and happy to present to groups within the Ottawa area.
I belong to Canadian Staging Professionals®. I belong to CAPS (the Canadian Association of Property Stylists). Find me on Houzz, under ‘Find a Pro’, and then ‘Home Stagers’ in the Ottawa profiles.
