This is For You if You Need:


Advice on Renovations & Updates

We can provide expert advice on finishes and fixtures, backed by years and years of in-the-trenches experience and formal design training. We'll help steer you toward the most epic choices for your goals and budget!


Great Designs Without The Ego.

We aren't like those designers. You know the type who think they know better than every contractor on earth and wears heels to the jobsite? Yeah, that's definitely not us. We're more at home in jeans covered in sawdust.


Sourcing, Styling, and Installation

Whether you just need our expert advice for now, or a fully hands-on install of décor and contents, we're your girls. We'll meet you where you're at with both budget and experience to maximize our impact on your rental.


Help With Branding & Copy

We have many years of experience developing brand visuals and writing copy for both ourselves and others. (For example, we do all our own graphic design, which means we created this entire site you're enjoying!)

We'd be happy to help you develop an over-arching theme for your property, a name, a marketing 'angle', and even help write the copy for your Air BnB/VRBO listing!


Masterfully Curated Contents

In addition to the furniture & décor, we can provide the selection & installation of contents (from TVs to sheets & towels!) to wow your target guests. Book a lot of foodies? We'll compile a dreamy kitchen full of tools and appliances. Just need the basics? We know exactly what your specific guests will need, and what they won't.

Your dream rental is in good hands.

Hi friend! We're Amy & Jes - business partners, soul sisters, and the staging & design team of your dreams.

We love brainstorming with our clients until we create a unique vision that can belong only to their project. This isn't just our job - it's our passion, and we get just as excited every single time we start a new design!

We're believers in this: The rental you share with your guests will elevate them above everyday life, and inspire them to truly relax and savor their lives & time with their loved ones.

We accept nothing less than dreamy.

We’d love to work with you to bring your property to life and create a welcoming, authentic getaway that's as unique as you are.

What clients say:

I not only look for an eye for design, but for people who can stay on time and on budget.

It's rare to meet a business that does it all!

They are absolute rock stars and true gems to work with.

Madison M.

Everything from initial consultation, the communication in between, to show time was flawless.

Their execution, teamwork, and passion are something enjoyable to be a part of. Look no further for your staging and design needs!

Crystal R.

These two can help craft someone’s dream design when they can’t even fully explain what that is. They took me through the whole process of discovering my design style, but the best part is that they work with your vision. Not the vision they prefer!

Super helpful, fun, and knowledgeable. I 100% stand behind this team.

the walkthrough

Rough Diamond Staging

We walk through your property to get an idea of the scope of what we can help with and give you an informal estimate or price range we expect your property to fall into.

We can do this with you and/or your Realtor or property manager, or alone with a lockbox code - whichever you prefer.


the quote

Rough Diamond Staging

If our rough estimate aligns with your goals & budget, we'll put together a formal quote and get to work on any specific design recommendations you need for your property such as fixtures & finishes.

This can take us anywhere from 48 hours to a week or more depending on the scope of your project.


finalization of details

Rough Diamond Staging

We present our quote to you via email, recorded video, and/or a live meeting or call where we walk you through the details of our quote and design plan.

At this stage we will finalize the scope of your project, get your approval of our mood board for the property, and nail down the list of included contents.


you sign & pay

Rough Diamond Staging

Once you sign off on the details of your quote, we will send an invoice for 80% of your total fee, with the remaining 20% due upon the final day of our install.

We usually need 1-2 weeks to shop and install, with at least 1 week advance notice to make sure we have room on our calendar. Installation dates are as available.


time to shop!

Stage Your Own Home

Once we receive your wire transfer for 80% of the total invoice we begin shopping.

We start with the biggest and hardest to find items or items that will take time to be delivered. We then fill in all the finishing touches and prep and store it all at our warehouse.

Sometimes large items like sofas will be delivered directly to your property which we will coordinate and accept in person.


schedule the install

Once you've completed any work, painting, or cleaning the property needs, we can officially schedule your installation.

We usually load in all the furniture on days 1-2 of the installation, and spend the next few days refining and filling in the details.

A typical installation lasts 5-7 days but can be more or less depending on the scope of your project.


photos & copy

Rough Diamond Home Staging

Finally we'll have the property photographed by a pro, and even help you write the copy for your Air BnB listing if you wish, all while you continue to sit back, relax, and worry about zero of the details.

The photos you receive will be full of wide shots to show the rooms and how they fit together, along with fun details and IG-worthy closeups to use in your marketing & socials. Our primary goal is to get shots that make people say 'I want to stay there!'


time to rent!

do less make more

Once we receive your final 20% payment, we will deliver your photos to your inbox.

Now that you have a gorgeously styled property, scroll-stopping photos, and fun descriptive copy to draw renters in, it's time to rent that bad boy and start making some of your investment back!

We love to get feedback on our designs and how renters and using and loving them, so be sure to keep in touch after our work is done.

Why Stagers > Interior Designers

As expert home stagers, we're uniquely suited to short term rental design! Interior Designers are used to styling for homeowners and contractors.

They work slowly & methodically, hold your hand along the way, give hands-off directions from a desk, and don't ever have to think about ROI.

Home Stagers however are experts at fast-paced design installs, and are wizards at maximizing a budget.

Our B2B dynamic makes us a perfect fit for investors looking for a drama-free experience and a healthy return on investment, without all the annoying fluff.
