Arica Martinez

Owner + Interior Stylist - 970-227-4532

Owner Arica is a Loveland, Colorado native. Arica and her husband decided early into their marriage that this beautiful city is where they would stay and start a family, so they built their very first home. Little did Arica know, that would be the beginning of her entrepreneurial dream. With a new house, and a tight budget, Arica had to get creative with ways to decorate their new home. And one of the ways she did this was by refinishing older, used furniture, and turning these forgotten pieces into works of art. Soon, not only was she refinishing these pieces for herself, but for clients throughout Colorado. After years of working on these one of a kind furniture pieces and using her eye for design, a local real estate agent saw something in Arica and asked her if she would work as his exclusive home stager. After staging many homes and working with highly satisfied clients, Arica has built Loveland’s premiere staging company—Colorado Staging + Design. As a personal interior stylist, Arica’s goal is to make buyers and sellers feel at ease with the major decision of home buying and selling, and ultimately, to make the process as effortless as possible for her clients.

After working at her church for 25 years, Debbie chose to retire when Arica asked her to join the Colorado Staging + Design team. She was excited to start a new life working with her daughter! Debbie says, "My very favorite part of working with Colorado Staging + Design is working side by side with my daughter and her hard-working team. That makes me happy.

"I’ve always had a creative side to me so getting to know how to be creative with housing is cool! I love helping others and being hands on. My favorite part of this job is being with my family and spending that quality time with the team."
