What started as a passion to make rooms work both functionally and esthetically for Marcella and Barbara, became a professional opportunity a few years ago. They graduated from the CSPI Academy in 2012 and are certified Canadian Staging Professionals, CSP®. They founded DECORIA together to help homeowners realize the full potential of their selling proposition.
Marcella’s interest in design started over 30 years ago when she and her husband designed, built, and furnished their new home in Switzerland with a team of architects. She passed on that love to her youngest son who is now in architecture school and will hopefully design their next home… After moving to Canada in 1997, she worked for years in a French Furnishing, Linens, and Accessory Company. With an exquisite eye for detail, a keen sense of style, and her strive for perfection she helped her customers create beautiful homes with unique imports from Europe.
Barbara’s interest in decorating and transforming living spaces from ordinary into extraordinary started many years ago. With her background in hospitality, advertising and marketing she strives to always exceed customer expectations and doesn’t take ‘no for an answer’. Her love for painting, sculpting, pottery and her passion for travelling the world is where she gets her inspiration for décor and art. After graduating as a Canadian Staging Professional CSP® she wanted to start her own business and was very fortunate to have her long time friend Marcella join her to become a co-owner of DECORIA.
