Couldn’t be Happier!! Vanities, lighting, frame less glass showers, stand alone tub, tile and window coverings. The very thought of renovating can be very stressful.  Cristina, along with her full service renovation team provided our family with just that, a stress free transformation! We are over the moon delighted with our stunning bathrooms and we look forward to Cristina’s next vision for our kitchen. We can’t thank her enough.

Working with Cristina was incredible!  She is very professional, yet so down to earth.  She has the amazing ability to walk into a room, create a vision and follow through with stunning results.  From paint colours to fabrics, from furniture to accessories – Cristina knows everything!  It was very overwhelming to undertake a renovation, but with Cristina’s knowledge and patience, it was a fun and educating experience.  Her deadlines were always met and I was impressed with the amount of contacts she has.  The thing I was most grateful for was that Cristina always knew what I liked and wanted even before I did!  I would HIGHLY recommend Ella Staging & Design.  A wonderful designer who delivers wonderful results!

Lino T.

Working with Cristina was a pleasure!  She was attentive, punctual and considerate to our needs.  She went above and beyond the call of duty.  After a lengthy process of trying to find a designer to help us complete our home, we chose Cristina and never looked back.  She helped us with designing our home from top to bottom; from our gym room to ensuite.  In short, she was professional on every level.  We will recommend her to family and friends.  Thanks Cristina!

Working with Cristina of Ella Staging & Design has been a wonderful experience.  Cristina helped us with staging an apartment and a house and also with renovating our bathroom.  Cristina is hard-working, professional and most of all a very genuine person to work with which is a rare resource these days.  I would highly recommend her for any staging and design work needed.

Fil D.

Ella Staging & Design was given the task of working with my wife and I for the remodeling of our second floor.   Our project was intensive where we started from the ground up choosing new floors, paint colours, furnishings, window covers, lighting and more.  Cristina was an absolute professional keeping our budget and our timeline always in check.  We will definitely be calling again for our main floor as well as when we are ready to complete our unfinished basement.  I would recommend Ella Staging & Design for any project in a home, office or any establishment.
