Mariposa Staging & Redesign was founded by Vanessa Marvin a local Realtor in the Jacksonville Florida area. Although she loved her 12 plus years in Real Estate, she always knew it was not quit fulfilling her true passion. She stated, “While I was able to help many people and contribute to their lives in a meaningful way and see some amazing home designs, I never felt complete joy in my career”.

She found herself offering her buyers and sellers advice on paint colors, furniture staging, accessories and more. Vanessa also loves to repurpose furniture, having done several gorgeous pieces for her customers. It was during those consults and projects, she would feel that joy she was missing in her career.

It wasn’t until she took a course on Staging to Sell, that she knew she was meant to help Buyers and Sellers in the design and staging of their homes as opposed to the purchase and sale side. Vanessa said, “I found when working with customers on a redesign project, I could work many hours and still feel so much excitement. It really didn’t feel like work at all. I’d found my bliss.” Vanessa’s love for  interior design and decorating work along with her true passion for making others happy lead to the creation of Mariposa Staging & Redesign.

Vanessa was joined by her daughter, Jennifer who works on the organizational side of the business. Jennifer was the owner a small upscale cleaning & concierge business but joined her mother last year. Together they can handle any job, from cleaning, decluttering, organizing and staging for sellers to color consults, furniture placement, flooring or lighting selections and more for buyers. We love what we do and it shows in our work. See what our customers have to say.
