Pierre M

Staging Client

She adhered to all the covid safety precautions and offered her expertise in an open, flexible and non judgemental manner. We were blown away by suggestions that she made which had not entered our realm of consideration. The rooms that she made her recommendations for will display some amazing transformations. We do not hesitate to recommend Liliam as she will not disappoint.

Nicole P

Redesign Client

as doing my first big reno. Liliam had some ideas that I hadn’t considered and helped with what to expect during renos as well as good questions to ask your contractors. The discounts she gets at flooring places and suggestions for where to find small detail items eg. decorative nails for bathroom panels on the side of a tube, was worth it all by itself.

Drew K

Vacant Stage Client

I was impressed right away with Liliam’s professional advice about home staging and how to get the best value for our money. The decorating service was superb; many of our friends and family who saw the “After” photos could not believe it was the same home. The Staging Place delivered efficient, timely and excellent customer service. It’s been a pleasure to work with Liliam and such a professional company. Thank you, Staging Place!
