COLOUR & STYLE YOUR SPACE 4 LIFE & WORK
Certified Colour Consultant, Design & Decorating Professional S4L: Expert visual perspective brining colour & functional harmony to any space or project. (Freelance)
As the Principal Decorator & Stylist at Staging4Life, I consult with residential, retail & corporate clients to colour and style their spaces for life and work. The goal is to stage a space, not with the objective of selling it, but rather to continue to enjoy the space: to live and work their best life in it. Hence the name: Staging4Life.
After graduating from Seneca College with a Diploma in Audio Visual Techniques and Multi-Media Productions, I started my career in the television production and post-production industry in Toronto, working with Feature Film, Television and Commercial clients.
Years later, I became a licensed Realtor with the Toronto Real Estate Board. Striving to add value as a Realtor I took additional courses at Seneca College in Home Staging, Colour Theory, Organizing for Living, and Digital Photography. My visual flair, eye for colour, and natural interior decorating talents came forward when staging client’s homes.
Inevitably, once I helped clients stage their homes for sale they could see the beauty in their homes once again. In fact, they often expressed that if they had staged their house before listing it, they may have decided to stay. That’s when I realized that my true passion wasn’t to help people buy or sell their homes; I wanted to help them be happy, healthy and more productive in their current spaces.
This led me to study Colour Consulting at QC Design School, where I acquired in-depth knowledge of the psychology of colour, and became certified as an International Colour Consulting Professional (ICCP). A proud moment for me was being selected as the winner of the QC Design School “Home for the Holidays” Design Contest.
Throughout the years one thing has remained constant, and that is my passion for helping others. I get an incredible feeling of satisfaction when I see the smiles on the faces of my clients. I have realized my true calling and draw upon my experience, training and passion to help my residential, retail and corporate clients with their colour consulting, decorating and visual merchandising challenges.

Having Deborah-Lynn of Staging four life to our home for a colour consultation proved to be a wise decision. Her knowledge of colour and design turned our large renovation into a stress free experience. Working with with Deborah-Lynn was a pleasure. Her natural instincts and insight into our personal preferences made the makeover a huge success. We love our new space from top to bottom, and the compliments we have received tell me Deborah-Lynn knows her business. I highly recommend Deborah-Lynn of Staging for Life! Thank you Deborah-Lynn

Kudo's to You Deborah-Lynn! While I like to think we were not living in the dark ages.. we have / had nice stuff.. we live "ok" . . you took your expertise to our home and ourselves and changed it for the better. I had no idea how color made me "feel". I had no idea what color's made my husband "feel". . . But I do now! We feel more relaxed, more comfortable, and to be honest more stylish in our space - and that is thanks to you! I highly recommend Staging4Life!
