{ about Teri }


Thinking about becoming a home stager?  Contact me for more information.


Teri is a graduate of The Staging Diva Home Staging Business Training Program, created by internationally known home staging expert Debra Gould of Six Elements Inc.


Hi, I'm Teri Manley, owner of Watermelon Tree Design.  Why Watermelon Tree?  As a little girl growing up in So.California I once declared that "I didn't know what smelled better ~ the orange blossoms or watermelon trees!".


In 2014, after a couple of major life changes and receiving encouragement from a my best friend and realtor to put my creative juices back to work, Watermelon Tree Designs was born.


I have been interested in color and design since childhood, making furniture and clothes for my dolls. and always re-arranging and decorating my room.  As a stay-at-home Mom

of four, I owned and operated my own handcrafted home decor business while my now grown children were growing up. After moving over 12 times as a military family, I've had plenty of experience decorating and organizing homes of various styles and sizes.


Inviting me into your home is an honor that I don't take lightly.  I will strive to make your home look it's best, whether you are placing it on the market or want a warm, comfortable place to enjoy and call home.


I look forward to working with you on all your design needs.


Teri Manley, owner
