Aloha! I'm Kai Cross of Pearl Home Design. I have staged luxurious multi-million dollar homes in Santa Monica, Pasadena, Hollywood Hills, Beverly Hills, and Bel-Air... as well as fun, eclectic properties in Echo Park, Silver Lake & Northeast LA (NELA) including many in Highland Park. I work with any style of home, whether modern or traditional, and have worked as far south as Irvine and as far north as Ventura.
My company stages vacant properties as well as "re-design" for occupied homes (using what you have, plus new accessories, throw pillows and art). We can also improve curb appeal and renew your landscape design. I'm an Accredited Staging Professional (ASP) and a member of the national Real Estate Staging Association (RESA). I'm truly passionate about what I do and I strive to make every staging and re-design experience effective, profitable and personable.
I often get asked, why the name "Pearl"? Well, it's named for my beloved Hawaii. The area called Wai Momi (meaning, “pearl water”) later became Pearl Harbor. Pearl was also my grandma's nickname, and my grandad served at Pearl Harbor in WWII. While I love southern California, I visit Hawaii as often as I can and I love its natural beauty. So for me, "Pearl" also denotes the quality and beauty my company brings to our projects. I hope to hear from you soon... Aloha!
