TheArt of Preparation located in Barrie, Ontario was established in 2008 by Helene Jattan, after graduating from QC Design School as an International Staging & Redesign Professional.  Helene Jattan is as well a graduate of The Staging Diva® Home Staging Business Training Program, created by internationally known home staging expert Debra Gould of Six Elements Inc.

Services offered  in logical order are professional organizing and decluttering  which is the first step before you decide to sell and stage your property or whether you plan to redesign to stay where you are.  When you are ready to consider staging, we can provide a home staging consultation once all is in order.  Not looking to move? We can help you chose your new paint colours as well with a colour consultation.

Helene started her career as an aesthetician in 1984 and for 15 years spent her time making people beautiful. She continued to create again, passionate about every project, whether simple of elaborate. There is nothing like the feeling you get when the job is done, its like a breath of new energy!


At the start of 2000, Helene changed her career and embarked into the wireless industry and designed an award winning retail packaging for Global BlackBerry Accessories as well as fashionable accessories for Samsung and other vendors as well. She managed a marketing team, multiple projects and following tight timelines which today uses in planning and organizing for a home staging or redesigning project.

Helene had the opportunity to design for United Way of Greater Simcoe Country for Estate on the Bay located in Barrie, Ontario.

From a very young age, she started decorating and moving furniture and still today continues this tradition. Her family members are never sure from one day to the next where the couch might be and suggests to turn the light on first before sitting. 

Her neighbours as well calls her the "spray paint queen", where she feels items can be re-purposed.

Helene has a good eye and can quickly point out areas that need improvement, every little detail as a matter of fact!  The first step is to call and book a consultation. Call to book today, 705.209.6779 or schedule online!
