San Francisco interior design by Refresh2Design


Refresh2Design by Juliette Schatan & Gary Schatan provides Home Staging Services in the Bay Area of San Francisco. For Interior Design please visit our sister website Curated by Juliette here.

We believe that the secret to a successful project resides in the art of aligning the clients’ vision with the space they inhabit. Our designs combine Californian lightness with European flair. We value Grace, Balance and Sophistication.

Our services range from complete design (color palette, floor and wall finishes, storage solutions, furniture plans, accessories & art) to design refreshers (strategic home improvement plans and home staging). We enjoy collaboration projects with other residential professionals, such as with our curated list of Architects, Landscapers, Contractors and Realtors.

Home staging services in the East Bay California for real estate listings



Gary Schatan is the co-founder/owner and Operational Director of Refresh2Design.

As a true artist, he perceives how important it is to create the right place for each object in a spacial setting. Additionally, he is a natural facilitator, and uniquely qualified to work alongside clients to turn our designs into reality. Gary has had a successful career as a national retail display & merchandizing consultant, where he excelled in creating effective point of purchase and merchandizing displays for the retail environment. 

After that, he worked as a Realtor until 2008, helping his clients realize their dreams of homeownership. From Realty to Home Staging has been a natural transition for him; he understands the needs of Realtors (and their clients) and has the ability to attain a high level of satisfaction among clients. Before the home is actually staged, Gary works with the client to produce a successful pre-listing renovation strategy to optimize the value of the property and create the opportunity for a successful listing and sell process.

Gary has a BFA in Photography from San Francisco Art Institute.
