I was born in Iran and moved to the United States when I was very young. Believing in education, my parents sent all of their children abroad to attend universities. Due to the turbulent political climate, my parents made the difficult decision to send me away much earlier than a child should be separated from their parents. Even though the separation was hard, this decision proved wise and it changed my life for the better.
I finished high school, went to university, married, and moved to London. As an urban person, I immensely enjoyed living there. My daughters were born in London and I made wonderful friendships and memories there during those years.
While in London, I often visited different historical sites, museums, and markets but I kept finding myself in designer showrooms such as Terrace Conran’s, one of my favorite design icons. My sister-in-law and I opened up a home décor business in the heart of Hampstead, a bit north of the West End. But destiny had different plans for my family and me. Shortly after, we moved back to Seattle. Relocating so far away was difficult, but as with my first move to the U.S., this decision turned out well for me and my family.
After my arrival in Seattle, I started toying with the idea of getting back into the design business. However, I wanted to be there for my children since they were still young. Home staging seemed a great solution; I could still exercise my design muscles, yet keep the projects short and manageable so I could be home with my kids. Since I grew up away from my own parents, in a way being home with my daughters made up for my early separation. This is how Seattle Staged To Sell began in 2005.
As my kids grew older and I had more time to focus on the business, I expanded our services and added new designers to help with the demanding workload. When home sellers saw their houses transformed after staging, they often asked us to design their new homes. The demand was high enough that I decided to offer a full interior design service. This is how “& Design” was added to our business name and we became Seattle Staged To Sell& Design.
Throughout the years, it has been a privilege meeting many incredible people and designing their homes. We look forward to more years of doing the same.
