RESA Member Monica Stanciu of Staged 2 Sell may not be able to decide if her style is minimalistic Zen or eclectic – but her sense of style is unquestionably fabulous. I had a chance to chat with Monica about her personal style, why she loves grey, her favourite art, how she got into the home staging business and what some of her favourite projects have been. Read on to see what Monica had to say. – Crystal Williams, Online Editor of Canadian Home Trends Magazine
What is the biggest thing you have learned about design as a home stager?
To respect the architecture of the house.
What is your favourite part of the staging process?
I love it when we stage an occupied home and use most of the homeowners’ pieces. Just by re-arranging what they already have and borrowing things from other rooms we are able to put our creativity to work and deliver great transformations. I had homeowners crying when they saw the final result. This is something that motivates us to go further and do better all the time.
