Join over 500 students who began their career transformation with Naomi Findlay and The International Institute of Home Staging’s™ flagship course
Having a passion and ability to style your own property is great, but without knowledge and theory of how home staging and styling works, taking the next step of a career change might always be too hard
THE MOST SUCCESSFUL HOME STAGERS AND STYLISTS MAKE ONGOING TRAINING AND DEVELOPMENT A KEY PRIORITY THROUGHOUT THEIR CAREER
You can have read all the latest blogs and magazines about interiors but that doesn’t mean that the staging of other people’s homes will just fall in your lap.
You may have a love for all things interiors and take great pride in the way your home looks now but that doesn’t mean the people interested in buying or valuing properties that you are staging and styling are seeing what they need to see.
Or, your family tells you that the way you have your home presented is just beautiful (and it probably is).
You see, you can have loads of creative talent, energy to burn, desire to succeed, lots of beautiful furniture but STILL not get the result you want.
You didn’t do anything wrong…but there could be a major part that most people miss.
So how do you get around these problems so that all of your time, effort and money gives you the best chance of the best FINANCIAL return?
Is there a system or “hack” that will give your efforts the return you deserve?
There is, and that’s exactly what this page is all about…
Since leaving the world of academia and medicine behind (yes I am a Dr!) and focusing instead on my true loves of interior design, property styling and real estate I have turned my life around.
I have established a very successful home staging company, designed and grown an online training program for other home stagers, teach people how to renovate through Zadel Property Education, write for a variety of media outlets including realestate.com.au, Interiors Addict and Reno Addict, and have renovated numerous properties for myself and clients that have achieved great financial gains.
In creating The International Institute of Home Staging™ I recognized that there are people out there just like you who want to learn how to turn their passion into a new career.
So I got to work coming up with a way to help others get what they want without having to pay a large amount of money for a course written by someone living on the other side of the world who has no understanding of the Australian real estate market.
When I was finished, The Art of Home Staging was done! I was left with a simple, easy-to-follow system that incorporated all of my best practices.
To effectively stage a property, you must engage your left and right brain, and training yourself to do this won’t happen over night!
Personally, I wouldn’t encourage anyone to start staging a home for sale, rent or valuation without having a proven, step-by-step guide to follow.
I mean it…
Have you ever heard the expression: “Pioneers get scalped but settlers prosper?”
The same applies here!
At The International Institute of Home Staging™, I’ve already done all the hard work, made all the mistakes and figured out what works (and what doesn’t). And believe me, I made some mistakes and “got scalped” a few times along the way…
That’s why I’ve been so careful to document WHAT WORKS into simple, easy-to-follow learning modules so everyone can get results across all types of homes and personal situations
Before The Art of Home Staging was created, the knowledge inside of it was mine alone to use with my private clients and help them make a stack of money, but now I’ve made my system available to the public.
So you don’t have to go it alone!
Normally to work with me to learn how to produce quality staged homes for sale or valuation would cost you thousands of dollars in tuition fees, countless face to face hours with me in Newcastle NSW and the costs that come with that (travel and accommodation being the biggest) but for a very limited time I’ll let you have instant access to this plan for just $697.
The Art of Home Staging course will feed you with expert knowledge about home staging so you can start pursuing your passion sooner. The course has six units [plus three bonus units] that can be completed on your own time, including:
Everything about this course is available digitally, which means you can access The Art of Home Staging, at any time, anywhere in the world. The material in this course has been created to make it as easy as possible to go back and look at past content, to revise for assessments and, of course, to learn more about home staging!
At the end of each unit, an assessment must be completed and passed in order for the student to graduate the course. The Art of Home Staging is completely customisable in terms of how each student completes and submits their work. The International Institute of Home Staging™ is happy to work with each student and find the best way for the student to complete the course most effectively.
Plus, you will become part of the International Institute of Home Staging™ community, which comes in various forms such as memberships, events and other perks that are exclusive to students of the International Institute of Home Staging™.

The courses are delivered online but students do have the option to submit their assessments in whichever way best suits the student. However, submitting assessments online does allow for feedback to be received more quickly.
A course certificate is issued and mailed at the completion of each course.
Each course and each unit are self-paced. This means that the hours it takes to complete each course and module is unique to each student and their situation.
For instance, some students spend 10 hours a week and finish the course in six weeks. Other students may take a month to complete a module, and that is completely fine.
Assessment tasks are scattered throughout the course, with a major work to be completed at the end of the course. All assessment items need to be passed in order to pass the course. This course does not offer any electives.
A new module will be delivered to your inbox each week.
For each of the modules you will receive an integrated workbook. This workbook is downloaded as a PDF guide for you.
The format of work submitted to IIHS™ is up to each student. The International Institute of Home Staging™ is happy to work with students in the medium they prefer as long as the work is well presented and of a high standard.
On successful completion of all course modules you will receive a certificate acknowledging the completion of this introductory home staging and styling course.
Your first module will be sent to the email address you provide as soon as possible after enrolling in the course.
Here are just a few…
This training will break down everything you need to do to stage properties for sale, rent or valuation. Each module has a workbook with a breakdown of actions to take. Everything is downloadable and can be saved to your computer to use for as long as you like.
