Diane Payne

Newmarket, ON


I have enjoyed staging and redesigning homes for many years.  My personal mandate is helping people…“put order in their lives”.  When it comes to selling a home, staging makes the difference and brings results.  On the other hand many people opt to stay where they are.  Let me help you take what you already have and recreate a new look in your space that is satisfying.  Frequently another set of trained eyes can see what is overlooked. I have extensive experience in this field.  I enjoy working with people to create a home that is suited to the needs and tastes of the client, whether that is to sell or stay!

I am a certified ISRP® (International Staging and Redesign Professional™) through QC Design School.  I have experience with a wide range of clientele involving varied styles and models of homes.  I am comfortable working in any situation to discover the client’s needs and goals and to implement a plan that will bring satisfaction.


My services include the following areas: Aurora, Newmarket, Oak Ridges, Holland Landing, and Richmond Hill.

I offer home staging and redesign services, and provide colour consultation.  As a professional organizer, my goal is to help people "put order in their lives".  Feel free to call for a consultation.


I hired Diane Payne to do some furniture placements in my living room and family room. I was very satisfied with the outcome. I found Diane to be very creative and confident in her redesigning skills. I appreciated her openness to my suggestions and her ability to work alongside me. I love my two rooms. They now make sense. They are very inviting and each have a beautiful focal point.

When we initially purchased our home we had a blank canvas to work with. Our home was empty, complete with builder's paint and little landscaping. Diane came into our house and transformed it into a home. She provided consultation and guidance for paint colours, furniture placement and accessorizing as well as suggested purchases. She also developed a plan for our yard. We love our new home and we have Diane to thank for this. She not only came into our home, but into our lives. Thank you for making our home a place that we love.

I have known Diane Payne for almost 20 years, during which I have never once seen someone as talented at Interior Design and Interior Decorating. As a realtor I can attest to the fact that any home that she works on consistently gets more money and is a faster sale than any other home that is comparable. Whether you are redoing and reorganizing your home to stay in and enjoy or to help to sell I would give Diane a 100 percent stamp of approval! -- Marion L.
