About Us

Picture5Hi, I’m Michelle, owner of Sanctuary Staging and Styling, LLC.

So nice to meet you!

Since you clicked on this page, I’m guessing that you want to learn a little more about me, and more importantly, Sanctuary?


From a very early age, I always had a deep interest in design and all things home, and could often be found designing rooms using egg crates, boxes and anything else I could find.   Throughout the years, I never lost my passion for transforming the everyday into extraordinary, even as I pursued a successful career in the sales and marketing arena.

Several years ago, my husband and I began working together to transform undervalued properties into fully renovated homes, either for sale or for rent.  We’ve visited hundreds of homes for sale in the Central Ohio area, and as a result, I have developed a deep understanding of how a few changes can completely transform a space, leading to a quick sale or rental, often at full ask.  This led me to explore staging and redesign, first for our own properties, and later, for others.

Through Sanctuary Staging and Styling LLC, I proudly serve Franklin, Delaware and Licking Counties, including Columbus, Westerville, New Albany, Galena, Granville, Delaware, Powell, and other Central Ohio Communities.  Beyond Sanctuary, I live in Sunbury with my wonderful husband in our own little sanctuary, full of family pets, including 2 spoiled Pomeranians, a rescue kitty and even a pond stocked with catfish and blue gill.  Besides the given of decorating (and redecorating) our home, I also enjoy traveling, an occasional glass of a good red wine and cooking.

Now that you know a little more about me, I’d really like to get to know you!
