Transforming homes one room at a time

Our passion at Della Design Staging is to help you create a home that works for you and not against you. We create emotional connections throughout the home by incorporating beauty, style and function so that you or potential home buyers will see themselves loving, living and utilizing the space.

I have spent years working in the fitness industry, using my degree in Kinesiology to help people become stronger and healthier versions of themselves. But I am also a home stager and redesign professional who graduated from QC Design School in 2017 and has recently completed an advanced staging training course with HSR (Home Staging Resource) in 2021.

In the summer of 2021 I decided to take the plunge and follow my lifelong dream of opening up my own business and follow my passion for interior styling and redesign.

I have worked for one of Canada's biggest furniture stores, and created over 1000 room displays ("model homes") to attract and encourage customer sales. By ensuring all decorative elements worked cohesively, I would hand pick furnishings, accessories, fabrics...to bring a set to life and create a unique room that people would stop, take notice, and make themselves feel at home.

Over the years, I have helped friends and family conquer their living space dilemmas through de-cluttering and organizing to reconfiguration and transformation. My energy and ability to think outside the box motivates me to get the job done.

During my free time you can catch me painting, dancing or training people to be more active.

"...Della excelled as our store decorator and maintained one of the best looking showrooms, with a great eye for accessorizing and décor... She is very well organized and keeps track of details necessary to coordinate many floor changes and events. She takes initiative to go beyond the expected parameters of her job. I have been very grateful for her contributions to our store... and very confident that she has the intelligence, work ethic and communication skills to add value wherever she works."

Jason (Merchandising Manager for Leon’s Furniture)


"Della has a great eye for decorating. Starting from the first staging she did for me, she was able to transform my income property into something you would see in a magazine. The place she was working with was quite small and Della made the space feel larger by incorporating the right furniture placement and size to provide designated areas for living. The accessories she chose brought everything together. The final product made it much easier for potential renters to see themselves living in the space, and I was able to rent it faster, and with increased revenue."



"I get a kick out of showing my home to family and friends now that Della has helped me reconfigure my home so that there is flow, organization and space. She listened to what I wanted for each room, assessed what I had to work with then gave me the direction, knowledge and visual presentation I needed to combine both functionality and style in each room. I now get the most out of each room and my place looks bigger and brighter."
