For over 10 years, Stefanie Garritty has been Calgary's leading Interior Designer & Home Stager. Through experience and high customer demand, The Design Chic evolved to be one of the only cosmetic renovation experts in Calgary. A cosmetic renovation specialist can first help you make the decision of whether to sell your home, or to renovate it. If renovating is the way to go Stefanie will recommend which areas of your home to renovate to get the biggest return on your investment when you’re ready to sell. In the meantime, enjoy a fresh new look and feel, whether its new paint, flooring and backsplash, or just new pillows and some modern art.. Either way The Design Chic will work with you, and your budget on new and exciting ideas to improve the look and feel of your home.

Stefanie will guide you through the whole process, acting as a project manager and a liaison between you and her team of trades. She is excellent at combining your favourite old pieces with new modern elements for a personalized, eclectic look. Or if you’d prefer to do the work yourself Stefanie can help you with the coordination of your new surface materials, for example she will assist in making sure your new bathroom tile or wall colour ties in the new carpet, or the new countertops coordinate well with the new back splash. Colour, texture and material selection can be overwhelming without the help of a designer. If you need help with purchasing new furniture or lighting, Stefanie offers home decor shopping services, with designer discounts at many furniture stores in the city, and knows just where to pick up those spectacular pieces of art and unique accessories to complete your cosmetic renovation. Be happy in your space. Love coming home. Make it meaningful and serene. Life is too short!
