A savvy homeowner looking to stage their vacant condo in Richmond BC did extensive research to find Enjy Fouad of Envious Design. They interviewed a panel of a few other reputable stagers, but hired Envious Design. What made them stand out was their services package tailored for each individual project. It includes project coordination, contractor referral, color consultation, and of course Enjy’s favourite – home staging. The client was SOLD on Envious Design’s tailored services package.
Envious Design decided to use Fluff Rentals to source from their warehouse of contemporary furnishings. The staff at Fluff are great and it’s always great fun to shop for the client’s property. The best part of all is staging the property with all the handpicked furniture, accessories, and decor pieces from Fluff. The realtor that this was the best staged property he had seen, and that it showcased the client’s property to its best potential and made it the best looking unit within the building.
After the completion of the colour consultation, project coordination on time and staging his property, both my client and his realtor were so pleased with the dramatic shabby to Envious results! The client was very happy that he was able to hire a home staging company that help him with all his project needs from A to Z.

Kym Tarr of Kym Tarr Home Staging in Kelowna, BC was teaching the 5 day PRES home staging and redesign course in Kelowna last week. Kym and her students left the home owner ecstatic with the changes! In just one day the PRES home stagers and redesigners follow a formula to give the home a whole new look using your things to create beautiful spaces for living or selling.
Testimonial: I had no idea what to expect and the outcome was a great surprise. Our living room looks extremely inviting now and I am eager to have more “quiet time” there. It is amazing what the placement of furniture does to a room, with of course the added touch of a change in decor and artwork. The Family room is great too and I will take Kym’s advice on purchasing a tree for the corner to provide height and to fill the space. The computer room looks like a completely different room! I feel much more relaxed in this space now and it feels so much more spacious. This room was definitely a source of irritation prior to the staging.
As I have also been trained as a CSP, sometimes it is difficult to see the opportunities in one’s own home and with a busy lifestyle it is also challenging to “follow through” on home lifestyle changes. I think that you offer your students a great training edge with the “staging for life” and “staging for sale”. This provides your students with a competitive edge in the market when it comes time to offering their skill set to customers. Thank-you once again for choosing my home and thank-you for all your hard work.
