about us

An Acquired Style has a reputation for providing creative design solutions for residential interiors and home staging projects. We come to you with a diverse background, infectious passion and a wealth of experience. Our goal is to gain a thorough understanding of our clients desires, their home and their day-to-day needs to create an organized, stylish, reflective space that gives them peace, sanctuary and creates a space you’ll love! 


Did you know that, statistically, 95.6% of staged homes sell, on average, within 35 days or less? Home staging is the first step in connecting buyers to your home through visual storytelling, allowing them to connect with your space emotionally. We work with many top agents in the area and they value us as an essential part of their team to getting their listings sold. We create the best possible first impression. 


Featuring a collection of eclectic materials, elegant furniture, and the keen eye of an expert designer, we create alluring spaces that make houses feel luxurious and desirable.  We help you as little or as much as you need, from a blank canvas to an existing room. Home decor and designing is more than just our passion, it's our purpose. It's what we love to do. 

You never get a second chance to make a first impression.
