At Chalmers Interiors our goal is to create a warm and inviting environment. In staging, our goal is to depersonalize a home and to appeal to many potential buyers while our interior design goals are to enhance the built environment to reflect its occupants personality and their lifestyle. These two different goals are achieved through Chalmers Interiors continued focus on and service to each client. Read on to learn more about the founder and principal of Chalmers Interiors.
Sheila Chalmers has been rearranging furniture since she was a little girl and has always been interested in interior design. Once she heard the term staging, she knew she’d found her calling.

Sheila has also earned a RESA-Pro designation, offered to select RESA members who demonstrate quality standards, commit to continuing education, and practice sound business principles.
Sheilas formal education includes a Masters in Business Administration with an emphasis in marketing, a Bachelors degree in counseling, and additional coursework in interior design. Combining her professional experience and education, Sheila knows how to work with clients to minimize their stress, reduce hassles and bring projects to completion in a timely manner.
