Testimonials from our recent clients
After my wife Linda and I decided to undertake a fairly extensive renovation of our open plan living, dining and kitchen space, as well as modernize both of our full bathrooms, we were extremely fortunate to find interior designer Liliana McInerney, with whom we felt immediately comfortable.
Lili was completely in tune with our needs right from day one, and it was clear to us that she was not only a well accomplished designer in whom we could place our full confidence, but she also soon proved that she had a unique flair for putting together a very classy, well-thought out modern and contemporary decor theme, while also having access to very experienced & responsible trades people she could call on for work on our project.
At our request at the start, Lili produced a project estimate that was not only in concert with our earlier research for budgeting purposes, but turned out in the end to be less costly than what we had allowed ourselves as a total budgeted amount.
She really impressed and amazed us by working promptly through each phase of the project in a singularly appropriate step by step manner, providing us with timely, excellent choices and options for all furnishings, wall art work & accessories, as well a superb selection of high quality tiles for re-fitting both of the bathrooms and the kitchen backsplash.
Linda & I are absolutely thrilled with the results of all facets of the renovation, which highly exceeded our expectations, and take pleasure in strongly recommending Lili, whose designer fees by the way, were not only very reasonable, but were largely offset by the savings we experienced through her capacity to find and secure the best pricing for all the purchases and the work undertaken. It was a total 'win'- 'win' situation.
Once again Lili, we can't thank you enough for the outstanding experience, and the 'nothing short of superb' results we had with our renovation project, thanks to "Upstage by Lili" !
With best regards,
I first met Liliana over 4 years ago at one of my open houses and I was immediately drawn to her sincere personality and calm demeanour. I was extremely impressed with her homes style and décor; it showed like every Realtors dream home.
Liliana's home staging company has helped me in my real estate business, by transforming my listings in a matter of hours, her keen eye and trendy style also helped numerous clients achieve record-breaking sales and often even within the first weekend. Liliana has a unique talent with impeccable taste that can transform almost any space, making it light and airy, and that is just what buyers are looking for. I have even had many of my clients hire her for their personal shopping and décor needs after they've moved into their new homes. I would highly recommend Lillana for any of your home staging and décor needs as her magic touch truly makes all the difference. Thank you Lili!

"Thanks so much for everything - Jack and I were really happy with the staging of our condo - it looked great and undoubtedly helped us sell as quickly as we did, and over asking price too! We are happy that we decided to go this route - your team made it really easy and hassle-free for us."

"Liliana completed two projects for us - she did the interior decorating to update our Penthouse in Yaletown and a brand new Condo in Tsawwassen Springs - both were done to perfection! From beginning to end she surpassed our highest expectations. Fair, honest, hardworking - and very talented, our family is happy to recommend her!"

"I recently listed my home for sale and was referred by my realtor to Liliana McInerney to stage the house for sale. I contacted Liliana and that turned out to be the best move that I could have made. In a very short period of time, and for a very reasonable outlay of funds she transformed my home into a fresh, beautiful home that I was sorry to leave. The realtor, my friends and family were really impressed with the end result.
In addition, Liliana was a delight to work with and I would use her again for my new home and also recommend her without reservation to anyone looking for help with staging to get the most out of your home."

"When I bought my new home I needed help with layout, furniture and all the finishing touches and that is when I was fortunate enough to be referred to Lilliana from Upstage By Lili. Working with Lilliana was such a great experience because most importantly to me, we had FUN working together! Lilliana was not only very fun and personable but unbelievably talented and extremely professional. She knows in seconds what layout, style and colors will best suit your home and work with your existing decor. Every time Lilliana brought over a new piece or presented me with options I was so excited and in love with her style and impeccable taste. My home is now stunning and everyone is always asking me where I bought everything and telling me that I should be a designer but I am happy and proud to give all the credit to the real designer, Lilliana from Upstage by Lili. Whether you are looking for someone to do an outstanding job staging your home for resale or decorating a home of your own, I highly recommend Upstage by Lili. Your home will have a stylish, luxurious and a finished look that will WOW everyone who enters. Thanks again Lili for an outstanding job and I look forward to working with you again."
