Blue Lily was born when three friends living in Erie – all Moms with a love of design – recognized the lack of options for home staging and redesign services. We have lived all over the U.S. and around the world, and we bring fresh ideas to the Erie market that can transform your vacant or furnished home into a property that will outshine the competition!
Nadia has always had the dream of starting her own staging and interior design company and now as one of the co-owners of Blue Lily Home Staging & Design that dream has become a reality. After living in Washington D.C., Philadelphia and Buffalo, Nadia found her way back home to Erie. She is a graduate of McDowell High School and received her BFA at Edinboro University with a concentration in Photography. She is a member of the national Real Estate Staging Association (RESA) along with the International Association of Home Staging Professionals (IAHSP) and received her home staging certification through Home Staging Resource (HSR). She has never walked into a space without a vision. Creativity and passion go a long way.
When Nadia is not thinking about work or transforming a space she enjoys cooking, traveling and spending time with her husband, Drew, and their three boys William, Patrick & Daniel and of course, her furry children, Louie & Hamilton.
Born and raised in northwest Ohio, Amanda has lived in Virginia, Washington DC, Greece, and Maryland before moving to Erie in 2014.
