Course content is easy to follow and gives a great framework and exercises to apply what you're learning with real life situations. Great fun! Can't wait to get out into the world of home staging!

“Just wanted to say how much we are enjoying reading through all of our Modules. We are learning so much and find the course content well structured. I think the assessments are really helping us grasp what is being taught. Just wanted to give a shout out to Naomi for always being available to answer our many questions and we really appreciate how accommodating she is. Bring on the next Module!
If you need a career change and are passionate about styling/ design I would recommend the IIHS course.”

Why do most people FAIL when Staging Properties even though they are committed to the work and get positive feedback for they have done??

  1. They don’t have a tried and tested execution plan.
  2. They lack the knowledge of what staging a property really mean.
  3. They spend time and money on areas of the house that have little to no impact on the final result.
  4. The first impression people have of the property is underwhelming.
  5. Visitors to the property spend more time looking at what is hung on the walls rather than thinking about the features.
  6. They rely on tradesman’s and other people’s advice on what to do with presentation and design rather than being the expert and telling them what they need.

So how do you get around these problems so that all of your time, effort and money gives you the best chance of the best financial return?

Is there a system or “hack” that will give your efforts the return you deserve?

There is, and that’s exactly what The Art Of Home Staging course is all about!

I’ve already done all the hard work, made all the mistakes and figured out what works (and what doesn’t).

And believe me, I made some mistakes and “got scalped” a few times along the way…

That’s why I’ve been so careful to document WHAT WORKS into simple, easy-to-follow learning modules so everyone can get results across all types of homes and personal situations

Before The Art of Home Staging was created, the knowledge inside of it was mine alone to use with my private clients and help them make a stack of money, but now I’ve made my system available to the public.

So you don’t have to go it alone, we are here to share all out wins and learns with you from being in the industry for over a decade.

And then you can...

  • Start building your new career as an educated and confident home stager and stylist.
  • Transform your life by following your passion.
  • Transform your clients lives by helping them in one of the most stressful times of their lives.
  • Make money for yourself and your clients by staging properties for sale, rent or valuation using my experience and guidance to make sure its done the right way.
  • Save time (and money) by executing on a proven formula that works
  • Avoid potentially-embarrassing and costly “rookie” mistakes.
  • Have a formula that will work for you the every time you stage a property for sale, rent or valuation.

The choice is yours.

“I too was looking for a career change and decided on the IIHS course. Naomi is very approachable ,is readily available and has helped me with any problems that I experience (mainly tech problems with email). Assignment times are very flexible and although they are not too involved at this stage I'm expecting to start learning more about the business side soon.

If you need a career change and are passionate about styling/ design I would recommend the IIHS course.”

Naomi graciously and attentively shared her knowledge, experience, warmth, sense of humour, insights and wisdom! As a new student to the world of home staging, I left with heightened enthusiasm and a whirlwhind of information, knowledge and ideas - in a very positive way! I'm so happy I took the punt on this course. I feel very supported by Naomi and her team and am looking forward to this journey and where it takes me!”

“From the outset, you are made to feel like you are part of a team - I am starting this journey in my very late 50s and I am still unsure of my capabilities. However, from the get-go, I have received so much encouragement and support and I know that I am not alone on this journey (wherever it ends up taking me). Meeting Naomi at the training day in such a relaxed welcoming environment and going through the program, has just reconfirmed this support and has given me added confidence to follow this dream. Thanks "team IIHS".”
