After 20 years in the business, DMI Homestagers’ owner and director Dinah Malyon is still passionate about making homes look beautiful and helping owners get the best value for their property.
The key to successful interior design is using pieces that work together to create a story. DMI founder Dinah Malyon invites us into her own home to see how she does it.
It’s 1997. A stylish blonde hurtles down Broadway in a convertible Jaffa-red Toyota Celica — chairs, vases and barstools teetering precariously on the back seat. Behind the wheel is Dinah Malyon, CEO of New Zealand’s first homestaging company, DMI Homestagers, in her first year of business. Little would you have known, the furniture and accessories were borrowed from friends, and the sports car her only asset after a recent relationship breakup.
