Yes, a good stager understands design...do you?

Welcome

Hi, we're Sandra Racz and JoAnne Lenart-Weary, award-winning design and staging experts, with over 60 years of experience between us.  We have been teaching others how to create beautiful rooms and turn their talent into businesses, since 1999.  Often people begin a staging business because they love the process of transforming rooms. They may consider staging a gateway or stepping stone to perfect their skillset for design as well as staging.  Or perhaps they simply love staging but aren't quite as confident when it comes to making the design decisions.  There are many great staging courses out there (we even teach it) but most courses do not focus on the aesthetics of the process.  The colors you select, the way you place the sofa, the art you hang...your choices must be very deliberate and geared to maximizing the sales potential of that house. The bottom line, it takes more than a good eye to create properties designed to sell. 


Even when you have good gut instincts, the polish a professional brings to the table is based on understanding solid design and color principles. Many say staging is not design but by implementing solid design principles, you will create consistently beautiful rooms....that result in sold houses.  That is exactly why we created this course, Color and Design Principles for Stagers.    Whether you simply want to enhance your staging business or add decorating to your revenue steam, this class is perfect for you, whether you are a newbie or established decorator.
