Coastal Cottages SRQ is a boutique design and home staging company based in Sarasota, Florida. Our staging designs are created to reflect a distinctly COASTAL flavor - allowing the potential buyer to envision a lifestyle by the water. Even if your home is not located near the water, we can beautifully transform any empty living space to radiate a warm, inviting, vibe and to inspire interest in your property! Our attention to detail and unique design elements make our projects suitable for even the most discriminating clients.
