PLEASE NOTE:  I am now concentrating on the interior design side of my business and no longer offer staging services.

My name is Carri Mallard and I moved to Los Gatos from southern California in 2010.   I’m originally from England and moved to the US in 1996.  Prior to starting my business here, I spent six years doing home staging and interior decorating in Manhattan Beach, Los Angeles.  I have staged many homes in and around the Los Gatos area and my interior design and re-styling services have helped several existing homes have a new lease of life. 

INTERIOR DECOR AND HOME RE-STYLING - Just moved in to your new home and looking for a helping hand?  Or would you like a major change or just a refresh in your home that you’ve lived in for ages?  I can help you with anything from furniture purchases and/or layout and choosing paint colors, to some window treatments, bedding and a dramatic rug or  just finding you that perfect piece of art to go over the fireplace.  Even just a little tweak can make a huge difference and it doesn’t have to be expensive or intimidating - just one visit to the right store can provide a fresh new look and there are some great websites out there.  All this, and more, can be provided at a surprisingly reasonable hourly rate.  When I finished a project with a client last year, she emailed me, “Thank you so much, I can finally relax, it’s done.  You are a genius!”.

DESIGNER DISCOUNT - I receive 10-20% off full price (and some sale) merchandise at the following stores and websites - Crate & Barrel, Pottery Barn, Pier 1, West Elm, Williams-Sonoma, CB2,,  Living Spaces offers a 5% discount to designers.

KITCHENS & BATHROOMS - Aesthetics and cohesion are important.  Can’t decide on what tile to use in your new bathroom?  Having difficulty choosing the right finish for your kitchen cabinets?  After we meet and I get an idea of what you like and what would work, I can do the leg work and bring you samples from local suppliers so you can make the decisions in your own home.  Choosing a slab for your island can be overwhelming - nature’s art is wonderful but she produces endless options.  I will help you make the final decision so the tile, the cabinet, the counter top and fixtures will all complement each other and work with your home decor and style.  Home Depot or Lowes / Bedrosians or Tile Fantastic, your budget will dictate where I go and it’s all serviced at my standard hourly rate.

Please contact me to discuss how we can work together on your home project.  It doesn’t matter what size, I’m happy to help.
