Here's a Bit About Us
Theresa Bouchard & Stephanie Eklund
Co-Owners and Designers
Theresa Bouchard and Stephanie Eklund were neighbors and friends before establishing TS Staging and Design. Upon meeting as next door neighbors, they soon realized a common interest; their love for interior design! They both loved each others homes and had similar décor items and sense of style. Both shared stories of constantly being called on by friends and family for design advise as their homes showed their talent and passion for the industry! It was in late October 2020 that Theresa and Stephanie decided to partake in the Home Staging Resource (HSR) certification program which trained them on how to establish a successful home staging and redesign business as well as all the intricacies of staging and design within a home. In November 2020, they dabbled in holiday decorating for clients and excelled! On January 2021, they took the leap and launched, TS Staging and Design. They proudly service Cumberland and York counties within the beautiful state of Maine! Theresa and Stephanie love what they do and together, continue to create beautiful spaces for their clients! They welcome any projects big or small!
They are an HSR Certified Professional home staging and interior redesign organization serving Cumberland and York counties of Maine! They completed the most comprehensive and intensive home staging and redesign certification courses in North America provided by the HSR.
The HSR Certification program was the first and is one of the only Accredited staging training by the Real Estate Staging Association (RESA) who is the governing body for the home staging industry.
In April 2021, Theresa became a certified color expert through the Certified Color Expert program offered by HSR. She and Stephanie work closely with Benjamin Moore and Sherwin Williams to learn about the latest new colors in the industry, what is trending and what colors are no longer popular. Paint color is such an important aspect to designing a room but can be intimidating! Give us a call to help you through the process!
