“I have always enjoyed transforming a space into a place you would like to spend time in, a space that reflects your life and personality.   As a designer, I was able to create that outward appearance of your inner self through furniture & décor.

Now, as a stager, I am enjoying taking a room or a home and creating a space that will appeal to many people and invite them in to imagine their own lives lived there.  Creating a space they can mentally move into.  It’s a fun challenge”

About Me

 

Working with Stand OUT Home Staging and Design offers you knowledgeable, experienced design and staging services that focus directly on your unique needs and goals.  For design clients, we specialize in mid to high end furnishings which offer great value and distinct design.   For staging clients, we have current, neutral furnishings and accessories that enhance a home’s appearance while not distracting from it.   For every client, Stacy Hernandez offers her friendly and professional wealth of services that will deliver you a beautifully designed completed project.

Stacy has taken her extensive background in Real Estate & Design to create StandOUT Home Staging & Design.  As a designer for the past 18 years, Stacy worked to co-found the premier luxury home furnishings store in Northern Nevada and California, Juniper Hill Furniture & Design.    She has worked on large scale projects such as model homes and estates, as well as single family homes and commercial offices and clubhouses.  “Each project is different, with a different personality.”  She has experience with every kind of design style and has worked to overcome many challenges that homeowners have been faced with.  Whether the job was working with existing pieces the homeowner had or creating an entirely new room, Stacy has a legacy of happy clients. 

What makes Stacy unique as a designer is due to her 18 years working & managing a high-end furniture store, “I have worked with thousands of customers over the years.”   She understands how to evaluate her clients’ needs and has developed a proven process to complete their project on time, on budget and to their specifications.  Our store catered to the luxury market, so in addition to furnishing the home, we have cultivated relationships with local companies to complete the entire job.  That includes faux finishers, window coverings, painters, contractors, and other professionals.  Stacy understands that an experienced project manager is as important to her busy clients as a beautiful, well designed room.

In addition, her experience running a multi-million dollar store gives Stacy an immense background in our industry.  She has a wealth of information about quality and construction of furniture & accessories and has been buying at the wholesale markets in High Point, New York, Atlanta, San Francisco and Las Vegas.  In addition to furniture, her store specialized in accessories, rugs, artwork, tabletop & linen, bedding – even Christmas and garden. Due to that broad range of departments, Stacy is familiar with hundreds of vendors in several price points and can complete a home from top to bottom.

What makes Stacy unique as a stager is the fact that she was a real estate agent in the Napa Valley for several years, she worked with both buyers and sellers as a Realtor® with Pacific Union.  She understands that when buying or selling a home, it is an emotional transaction.   She prides herself on paying personal attention to the needs of the seller.  She also knows what buyers are looking for when searching for a new home.  That knowledge, paired with her design experience, gives her the unique perspective to stage a home so that her clients’ property sells faster and for the best market value.

We work with realtors and sellers to showcase their home in the best possible way.  To StandOUT against the competition.  We guide sellers through the steps to successfully stage their home and realize their goals. 

“Someone asked me once what my favorite part of my job is and I couldn’t choose just one thing!  I thoroughly enjoy each of my customers.  I love talking with them, and learning what they love, what they do in life and generally what makes them tick.  I guess you could say I am a ‘people person’.  Pair that with my love of design and you have a great combination to help any seller transition to their new place in life.”
