Stage A Space bridges my life’s passion for design from the fashion industry to home staging. Throughout my 20+ years in styling and merchandising for Ann Taylor, J.McLaughlin, Bill Burns and Carol Cohen, I consistently worked with a common objective – simplicity, elegance, timelessness and approachability.


Interior design and fashion share many similarities. Both create wonderful aesthetics utilizing style and harmony to entice today’s demanding customers. Stage A Space enhances your home's appeal with one main goal – to create a home that buyers will fall in love with.


Today’s buyers want a clean, simple, modern approach. These are the qualities that I bring to home staging. We create beautiful and balanced spaces. Let us Stage A Space for you!​​
