Were you expecting a joke?! Oh shoot… Ok… We don’t want to let you down right off the bat! So…hmmm…
Hey, paint you an interior decorator?
Eh? Eh? Should we apologize or bow?
Now that we got that out of the way, that ‘knock knock’ was actually us knocking on your front door to introduce ourselves, step in, take off our shoes, and create beautiful spaces in your home!
We are interior decorators and stagers in Calgary. We are also real estate marketers creating targeted personal brands for high-end real estate that promote and sell your home faster. Paired with our interior staging, you’re guaranteed to get top dollar for your sellers.
Lastly, we specialize in designing, staging, and marketing short term investment & rental properties – ask us how!
It is nice to ‘meet’ you. I know websites are not quite like a good solid handshake and a laugh, but hopefully our little bios will get our foot in the door (your home’s front door to be exact) so that we CAN have a handshake and a laugh (and if you are huggers we are huggers too).
Sarah is a certified interior decorator, home stager, and marketing professional. She views interior design from a marketing perspective in which her clients are the ‘target audience’ that the spaces must ultimately ‘wow’. She draws her inspiration from nature and is not afraid of texture and colour. While her favourite ‘colours’ are white and grey, she specializes in incorporating peoples cherished souvenirs and funky decor, no matter how colourful, flawlessly into a design – because a house is not a home without these personal items.
Sarah is an avid traveler and has stayed in well over 100 airbnb’s in the last 10 years, all across the world. This has given her huge insight into what gets clicked, what gets booked, and what earns those coveted 5 star ratings.
For fun, Sarah flips home decor – scouring every garage sale and thrift shop she drives by for great finds, upcycling them, and reselling them. She also enjoys consigning small furniture and decor for clients.
Veronica is professional organizer. In her teens she started a cleaning company, and over a decade her services began to transition into organizing and packing. She enjoys the detail work associated with the edit > pack > stage process, and is extremely creative when it comes to organizing and beautifying homes. Veronica believes that one’s space has a profound effect on our well-being. She has a passion for helping people to relieve stress and excess baggage (pun intended)!

I recently decided to sell my house and it was all happening really quick. With a young child, I was feeling overwhelmed and in over my head with all the work it would take to pack and stage my house. Unshelf Design was able to come in and accommodate my short timeline, basically performing a miracle! I had no idea how much work it would be and it was a huge weight off to have a professional come in and give me help and guidance. In the end, they were able to help me declutter and depersonalize with an end result that looked amazing once we finished. My house sold in less than 48 hours and that is thanks to the incredible work done by Unshelf Design. If you are looking to remove some of the stress of packing and staging for photos and do an incredible job, Unshelf Design is the company for you!
The ladies at Unshelf Design were AWESOME! I would gladly recommend their services to anyone, in fact I told my realtor about them and suggest he also recommend them. They did such a great job, packing, staging, and helping us make our place look amazing for showing our house when we listed it for sale.
I’m so glad I chose this company and met with Sarah! I am a super indecisive person and don’t know how to fix up my house to make it look good to the general public but Sarah not only worked with my ideas, but made additional suggestions that I never would have thought of! The plans she laid out came way quicker than I expected, and in an electronic and 3D medium that is so easy to use and helped me with my visualization. She’s the right amount of professional and friendly, so I feel comfortable discussing anything with her and I would recommend her to anyone.
