Cynthia shows dedication and a style that puts her in front of others. We were very happy with the results and her professional approach. Elizabeth Bittley

It was a pleasure working with Cynthia and the Upstage Design team in preparing my home in Oak Bay for sale. Cynthia is highly motivated and accommodating in meeting her client’s goals and is fully invested in her projects. She has a wonderful eye for design and detail. Amin Shahbaz 

I am a big believer in staging a property to achieve the best results for my clients and this philosophy has paid off as we received an offer within 24 hrs. of listing! Cynthia at Upstage Design was a pleasure to work with and her creative ideas and designer touches created a beautiful home that shined through in the photo shoot! She worked within my budget and under tight timelines and schedules and is a true professional. I highly recommend Cynthia and look forward to working together again in the near future. And, my clients were delighted too! Ingrid Jariz, Real Estate Agent

I have known Cynthia since 1992. She is a hard working, organized, loyal committed person. When she takes on a task she works with enthusiasm and dedication to complete the work to a degree of perfection that is rare to find.

This July, Cynthia helped me clean and organize a suite I was needing to rent. We had a very short timeline to complete the work which added stress to the job this did not deter Cynthia from the task. Her advice on paint colours worked perfectly to make the place feel, clean open, and airy. The tenant was told she could pick her own colours but was more than happy to go with Up Stage Design’ s recommendation. The recommendation for flooring also worked well. We were able to complete the work on time and on budget and were really pleased with the outcome. Jan Mahoney


Upstage Designs worked with us from concept to finished design. Cynthia has an amazing eye for design, space and function.

She was able to bring our desire to create a clinical space that retained a comfortable, warm and welcoming feel that reflected our approach to care. She was a great advocate for us when it came to working with contractors and suppliers. She really helped us keep on budget and got the job done in a timely manner. We couldn’t be happier with the office and our patients compliment us on it everyday! Cynthia is a true professional. Harpreet Lotay
