Who We Are
Originally from lush Pasadena, Liana grew a deep appreciation for the incredible character homes lining the streets of her neighborhood since her childhood.
Her background in design ranges from home staging, interior design, and television production. Whether the target is modern, traditional, contemporary, or an eclectic mix, she’ll find the soul of your home and bring it to life. Her love for Homes, Design and Art is evident in each and every interior she has staged throughout the greater Los Angeles area.
A knack for color theory and a love for furniture are evident throughout every project Liana leads. You’ll find her sweet spot in the world of character homes, even the most troublesome floor plan is a welcomed puzzle to be solved for a show stopping, camera ready interior.
Stage of Mind was born when Liana took on the task of selling her private home in Bungalow Heaven years ago, and unknowingly staging it herself too! Every agent who walked through her home had to know, “who staged this house?”.
And the rest, is history.
Her love of all styles, from modern and antiques to contemporary and traditional, paints a delicate balance between old world charm and new world living.
Keeping consideration of the home, its buyers, and occupants is of the utmost importance to Liana. She has made a famously positive reputation in the community as being a “house whisperer”, wielding a skillset that brings each and every home she touches to life.
Raffi launched Stage of Mind with his partner Liana Ayranian and became quickly know as the problem solver.
His role as the lead support for both the SOM team, Vendors and Clients is imperative in maintaining our exceptional care for our customers.
Patty Golin came into the Stage of Mind family 7 years ago. Originally from Texas, Patty moved to Los Angeles for college and never looked back.
After working in various industries throughout Hollywood, including real estate, entertainment, fashion, event planning and music, she honed her creative skills into a career of staging homes.
With a keen eye for optimizing space and value, she knows how to bring out the best in every home she stages. To date, she has staged hundreds of homes and has a loyal following of realtors, builders and artists.
She is able to work with every budget, cater to each clients needs, and treats each project as if was her own home.
