Elizabeth Polansky, Owner and Founder
Elizabeth has held a passion for all things design since she was a young woman. Her career began in her teenage years working in a small women’s clothing boutique. From 1981 forward she managed high end retail jewelry stores in New Jersey and Philadelphia, with her passion for design and
merchandising steadily growing.
In 2000, two short years after moving to Maine, Elizabeth decided to pursue her dream career of interior design. Starting off small she established a plan to offer affordable interior decorating services to busy professionals, aiding in making their homes beautiful, comfortable and inviting. Elizabeth has a passion and talent for working in customer service and takes pride in her ability to connect with those she works with. Her main goal is to make sure her clients are satisfied with the work she has done, making their home truly reflect who they are!
As her interior decorating business bloomed, Elizabeth found an interest in real estate home staging. After becoming aware of the process, she quickly began preparing her business to offer staging services.
In 2004 The Styled Home became the first company to offer Staging in the Portland, Maine area. Through connecting with local realtors, Elizabeth was able to grow her business into what it is today, The Styled Home!
As her business grew, so did the need to acquire warehouse space to house their staging inventory. In 2012 they moved into their first warehouse space of 2000 sq. ft. By 2017 they had moved their warehouse twice and were ready to make our third move, into our current 10,000 sq. ft. warehouse.
In 2018 she had the opportunity to collaborate with the owner of UpScale Furniture and Consignment, opening her retail division “The Styled Home by UpScale”. Her showroom offers for sale retired staging furniture, new products as well as selective consignment pieces.
