Ilona was born in Sydney, NSW, Australia. You could say she has always been a ‘Stager’ as she loved to dance and perform from when she was just two years old.
Her performing talents led to a career as a professional dancer appearing in productions in Sydney and many countries around the world including Portugal, United States, Asian countries and France – with a long stint in Paris at the Moulin Rouge. She is also known to tickle the piano keys.
Ilona spent a few years on cruise ships as a performer and Entertainment Director and is an ace karaoke queen – especially singing in Mandarin!
She married and moved to Port Macquarie with her husband and two young boys and embarked on another career in a life long passion – interior design. So when the opportunity knocked to work with Designing Divas as a Staging Interior Stylist in 2020, it was a perfect fit.
“When creating your space at home, take your time and make it meaningful so that when you walk through the door, you can’t think of anywhere you’d rather be. That’s how I approach staging a home for sale.“ Ilona
