CAPITAL CITY DESIGN is a Victoria, BC based real estate staging company. Experienced with small and large homes, we enjoy working with new condominium developments and in small spaces around 1000 square feet. Helping real estate sales by showing buyers how a smaller home can function is extra gratifying to us.

Our goal is marketing homes to help sellers get the best return and to help buyers get the best vision of space use in their new home. For those downsizing, it is important to show how quality of life does not have to be sacrificied by living in a smaller home. With joint collaboration and professional staging we can help you show effectively to your target markets and even sell in less time for more money.*

CAPITAL CITY DESIGN is a seasoned and talented team of people working together with passion for quality, service, interiors and real estate.  We collaborate whenever possible with local trades, furniture suppliers and home accent stores and are spirited individuals who love the indoor world. Solving the puzzle of home space and function makes us smile. We believe our services will do the same for you.


Home staging is the act of preparing for sale with special emphasis on appearance and presentation. Capital City Design will stage your space in a aesthetically pleasing manner in order to attract a homebuyer and to get offers more quickly.


The goal of staging is to attract a buyer more quickly and to sell for the highest possible price. We help make spaces memorable so that you have an advantage in todays real estate market.
