Fantastic Feedback

Elle was able to share her talent, passion, and professionalism during this intense 5 day course to provide me with all the practical tools I needed to start my own ReDesign/Staging business.  As well as giving me great and thorough theoretical knowledge, I received hands-on experience that was immersive, and prepared me for my re-entry into the business.

I strongly recommend this course for anyone that has been looking for serious and effective training to help re-kindle their love for ReDesign, Staging or Interior Decorating.”
