Home Styling for Living

Michela Richet of Aravis Home Design was so helpful in transforming our office into a warm, welcoming environment.  Whether it was consulting at the blueprint stage, giving us colour choices, dealing with contractors, or suggesting furniture placement and décor items, she was very caring and supportive.  She listened to our needs, balanced form and function, and was practical and cost-conscious.  We appreciate her professionalism, her contagious enthusiasm, and her heart for our big office makeover!

Michela has a great sense of style and helped me with a variety of home decorating projects. Her creative ideas can deal with any design dilemma. Michela has an eye for detail that enabled us to achieve a home environment that complimented our style. She is reliable, committed and demonstrates a high level of professionalism. Michela is a valuable resource that I highly recommend.

Home Staging for Selling

My husband was not as convinced about the need to stage our home for sale. It has been twenty years since we last sold a house and times have changed – buyers expect more from a home when they look at it. After some convincing, he agreed and we met with Michela of Aravis Design who had been recommended by friends. Her advice on where to spend our money and save on money on updating our home was so valuable as we didn’t know where to begin. We then purchase a comprehensive staging report and had our family come over to work through the To Do list. It was very easy to complete as it was so detailed and specific to each room of the house. We had Michela come back for the final touches and once it was all done – I almost didn’t want to sell – it looked so good. We did sell within two weeks for our asking price and my husband finally admitted that it was the best money spent.

We had Aravis Design stage our condo and rented an accessories package as we did not have a lot of nice stuff to showcase our home. We found Michela to be extremely professional, and felt proud to put our place on the market against the competition once the staging was done. We could not have done this on our own and would recommend her expertise to anyone wanting to sell their house in today’s competitive market.
