Emily Rivard, Proprietor of The Next Stage Limited

 

It all started when...

Her staging career started at 13 years old.  When Emily's parents left the house on a date, and after her siblings were asleep, Emily would move the furniture and art around in her living room in Windsor, Ontario.  She wanted her home to be more functional, stylish and comfortable for a family of six.  When her parents came home, they would be surprised by how great their new living room looked and amazed at how their teenage daughter pulled it off while her siblings were asleep.  Emily has been staging ever since!  

Emily moved on to re-design her own home several times and has helped friends and family and her many clients with home staging and design.  Emily loves being creative and overcoming challenges.  She also enjoys working with people and truly cares about her clients.  Emily and her team can make a space more functional, more visually appealing and more enjoyable to live in.  She and her team can usually work with existing furniture and art, however, in some cases new or rental furniture can be brought in.  Emily will be honest and forthright if it makes sense to bring in new pieces to increase the value and enhance the visual appeal of a home.  Emily focuses on residential homes and condominiums however she has also been asked to stage cottages and design professional offices.  The Next Stage can transform a space to highlight it's potential.  Emily would love the chance to help you improve your home to improve it's functionality and style and maximize it's value.
