Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined” - Henry David Thoreau
Ramona Persaud, Durham-based Property Stager & Interior Designer and founder of Splendor Design & Home Staging. At Splendor Design & Home Staging I believe: "The essence of Interior Design and Home Staging will always be about real people and the way they live". Whether it’s a bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, living area or hallway in your home, Inspire has a unique and functional design solution for any type of style. Through my creativity, I can help realize your dream home, allowing you the pleasure to live in a luxurious, well-designed space, while impressing everyone who comes to visit. One of my specialties is the distinct ability to create beautiful, gravitating rooms, in which you will be able to feel warm and comfortable in. I am extremely passionate about creating an alluring and tranquil space for everyone to enjoy. With my formal education and through my significant years of experience in Project Management, I have developed the skill of integrating each individual client’s needs and wants into beautiful and comfortable living spaces. I want to know my client on a personal basis, where I can learn, what each appreciates, and most importantly, how the client wishes to live in his/her home. It would be my pleasure to help you pull together the home or work environment of your dreams. If you have any questions or would like to schedule an appointment please feel free to contact me!
Having a detailed eye and passion for home decorating and design, I keep attuning with design principles and trends. I represent and practice high standards in the staging industry being an International Staging and Redesign Professional™. My staging expertise is also complimented with a background in management and project management, coupled with over 25 years corporate experience in client service and project management. With a Project Management Professional designation, I have the skills to integrate each individual client needs and wants into beautiful and comfortable living spaces and to professionally manage and keep track of projects on the go.
It is my pleasure to work with Home Owners and Realtors in Durham Region. During this time I am looking to enhance the look and feel of their homes as a Home Staging Specialist and Interior Design Consultant. My work will include everything from existing to new homes throughout the Ajax/Pickering/Whitby area. Whether home staging, interior design or consultation, it is my clients who will continue to be my main inspiration. My clients will feed my passion for interior design as we learn and grow together with each new project. One of my strengths is my ability to make an often confusing and process clear and interactive. It provides great personal satisfaction to bring your interior design ideas to life! This process should be fun and collaborative and my goal with each of my clients is to ensure they feel they have as large a part in their home’s transformation as they want to have. To me, this is a key component to my interior design and home staging success. Are you far too busy to dedicate time to the interior design process? Are you full of your own ideas but lack the focus or confidence to make them a reality? Are you selling your home but the idea of home staging seems like a foreign language? It really doesn’t matter what your specific situation is beyond your identified desire to make changes to your living spaces. I am here to make this process simple and build on what you provide me. No one will do a more creative and thorough job. Between the warmth of an interior and the jazzy statements that customize it, I will give you a modern glamor twist on interior design and home staging.
Selling your home? Home staging may give your home the competitive advantage it needs in today’s real estate marketplace. Splendor Design & Home Staging provides services which include vacant house staging and model home merchandising, as well as owner-occupied staging. I will design a plan within your budget to help you showcase your home so it may sell faster and for the best price possible. Staging does not have to be expensive. A staging consultation or light enhancement may be all you need to get your home market ready. I am ready to assist you, however, with more extensive staging including furniture and accessory rental, as well as contractor referrals and consulting for home improvement projects, I strive to present you with the most affordable solutions possible depending on your needs. Every staging project begins with an initial no-obligation phone consultation to discuss your situation and how I may help you. During this time, I may then schedule an in-home consultation about staging your home, with recommendations on preparing the property for sale.
We offer the following in-home consultation services:
Walk and Talk: During this 1-2 hour meeting, I will assess your staging needs, discuss recommendations, take photos and measurements as we walk room by room through your home. Property owners may take their own notes if they wish. A proposal for our services may be provided as well.
Do-It-Yourself Report: Following the staging consultation, I will provide a detailed, written report complete with photos and a suggested staging action plan. The report is typically emailed within 48 hours. This service is perfect for those who want to take on the project and tackle the work themselves.
Looking to freshen up your space? Whether you need just a spruce up with some finishing touches or a total makeover, I aim to create a design plan that is not only beautiful and functional but is also right for you and your lifestyle. From planning to implementation, my goal is to make your next design project a successful one.
With seemingly endless design possibilities to choose from, it can be challenging to decide on the perfect look that you want for your home or small business. Splendor Design & Home Staging provides a full range of services in any decorating style for residential clients. I take the time to understand your personal decorating tastes to develop unique solutions for your project using basic design principles and a trained eye to help you make appropriate design decisions within your budget.
My decorating services include:
I begin your design project with a questionnaire to learn more about you, your lifestyle and design preferences. We then meet for about 1-2 hours at your home to discuss your project in detail plus take notes, pictures, and measurements to use in creating a Design Plan based on your decorating needs.
I will assist you with selecting materials for a renovation project, such as paint color, light fixtures, custom window treatments and flooring, or countertops, cabinets and hardware for a kitchen or bath remodel. I have preferred local contractors to help you complete these projects.
Floor Plans, Furniture Layout and Style Boards
I create detailed displays to help you visualize your project plans.
I help you choose a color palette for your design plan for a cohesive look from room to room in your home.
