I am Marianne Hölscher, your experienced personal home stager. My passion is to empower people. As a librarian, it was very satisfying when I found the information the students were looking for. I changed direction and did an interior design course and gave me great pleasure to have happy clients with my design. With the enormous impact that the Covid pandemic has had on the world, I decided it is time for a change in my interior business and to specialise in staging homes in the property market. I focus on sellers who are downsizing. I have helped many elderly people with the very emotional experience of letting go of happy memories.
My preference is to stage occupied properties.
Since 2006 I have been an interior designer with a hands-on approach. Previous clients from [mh] interiors include guest houses and residential properties in Stellenbosch, Franschhoek, Durbanville, Somerset West, Cape Town, Pretoria, and Victoria British Columbia, Canada.
I am continuing with my home decor and upcycling shop https://ja-nee.co.za/ to complement the new Marianne Home Stager business.

Home Sellers, are you struggling to sell your house at present? I can help you to stage your home to appeal to potential buyers. Worldwide statistics have shown that staged homes sell quicker and at the best price. Call me for a one-hour virtual consultation.
I have asked Marianne several time to provide expert advice and hands-on help with redecorating and staging, including selling our own home as well as that of my parents.
One of the most daring projects was where she did impeccable stencilling on the walls of our Victorian high-ceilinged home and helped me to choose colours and fabric to create a warm and luxurious space. Her special talent is to identify furniture and décor items in the house and to combine them with flair, thereby transforming a space without additional costs or having to buy new items.
She has an amazing eye for detail and can always convert a room into a liveable and economic space by grouping furniture and art together for maximum efficiency and visual impact.
During the two house sales, which were rather emotional processes for me, she was able to focus on the broader goal namely to provide an open and inviting space for potential buyers who could then imagine themselves living in the house. She also has the ability to see the overall perspective: from the first street view impression of the house; the flow from one space into another; to the finer details in each room – this is what made the house attractive to potential buyers and both times, the house sold within a few weeks.
I am a sentimental and habitual collector, but during several consultation sessions over the years, she has helped me to declutter to open-up space in our house so that it is welcoming to all our guests. On each occasion it felt as if it was completely renovated, although it was mainly her keen eye and economic approach that made all the difference!
I will recommend Marianne to anybody who needs to sell their home or who wants to give their home a fresh new look.
Marianne assisted me in upgrading my home. I was impresed by her problem-solving skills and innovative ideas. She managed to procure items at a far lower cost than I could have done on my own. Marianne always wants the best quality and goes out of her way to make it affordable for her clients, sometimes by giving an old piece a completely new look.
Great service; efficient and friendly! Marianne staged our house for rental on a low budget. Made a huge difference and we were able to get new tenants on short notice.
