From Interior Design to Home Staging: If you love homes, architecture or design, then you too may have a similar story. I grew up flipping through the pages of Elle Décor, House Beautiful, Traditional Home and many other home décor magazines. Seeing all of the new furniture trends, seasonal color palettes and the items the hot designers couldn’t live without would make my day. Every trip to the grocery store meant I had to have a new home décor magazine.
At home my mother would sketch furniture layouts for our weekend DIY projects. After the design was decided we were off to Joann’s Fabric & Craft Store. There we found plenty of fabric for drapery treatments and throw pillows. The next stop was Home Depot to buy paint to try a new color or a new painting technique. Eventually, I would frequently repaint and restyle my room throughout high school and college. My friends would often say, “Andrea if you change your room one more time…” I guess the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.
I went on to earn a Bachelor of Science in Interior Design from The Art Institute of Philadelphia and jumped right into the industry. My first job out of college was at Duralee Fabrics at the Washington Design Center around the economic crash in 2008. Eager to find a way to use my talent to fix a problem I came across Home Staging. It matched my love of decor so I took courses to become accredited and I hit the ground running. As an Accredited Staging Professional and HSR Certified Stager & Redesigner, I am happy to transform your listing into a desirable, warm and welcoming house that home buyers can’t live without!
Andrea Gary is a true professional with a sense of style makes her listings sell quickly. I have worked with Andrea to stage several of my listings, and not only was I pleased with how these properties turned out, but when their homes sold in under a week. I would highly recommend Andrea Gary Interiors to stage your home!

Andrea staged a condo for me and it really made such an impact and gave the listing a warm lived in appeal. This was a dated condo and although it was freshly painted and spotless, it needed the TLC that Andrea achieved with her furniture and accessories. She has the right eye for today’s buyers and no doubt it helped us sell. I would highly recommend her as I have.

We enlisted Andrea’s help to sell a listing that we were taking over from another agent. The home had been previously staged and had sat on the market for more than 6 months. The previous staging was not doing anything to help the home sell and one of the first things I did was have the old staging removed so that we could start over. Andrea’s staging made a huge difference, it was modern and the style fit the home well, accentuating the features and spaces. Most importantly, in combination with professional photos, the staging worked. We received multiple offers in less than a week-at the same price that the home had previously been listed at for months. Andrea was very responsive throughout the process and was able to meet our short time frame and the seller’s limited budget. She was happy to discuss our options with us to make sure that we maximize the impact of the staging with the funds that we had allocated. Having worked with a number of different staging companies in our area, this is not always the case. We will definitely use Andrea and her team for our future staging needs and high recommend her services.
