A Very Naples Christmas

Decking the halls (and lanai) for December

Christmas in Naples is special.

We can enjoy our outdoor spaces with friends and family, hanging twinkle lights in palms and spending evenings by the fireplace around the pool. This year, we asked the elves at Simplify Home Services to set the scene for us.

Simplify Home Services was created in July of 2020 as a start-up by Rochelle Joslin and Lina Chiodo.  During the pandemic Rochelle, who was a  school teacher, decided to take a leap of faith and try something she always loved doing...  organizing and staging.  At the same time, Lina was completing her certification in design, a long-time passion of hers.   

Lina and Rochelle hit the ground running with in-home consultations to help people make the most of their homes before a sale.  They handle staging, design, redesign and find opportunities to help clients get their home turn-key for rental opportunities.  The business has grown very quickly as they both love what they do.  "Just a few months in we were honored to be able to create a fall-themed entry for Naples Lifestyle magazine and now one year later to be doing a Christmas scene seems surreal," says Rochelle. This definitely shows you that no matter the circumstances, you can always make the choice to run after your dreams."  Lina and Rochelle feel very blessed to call Simplify Home their own.   

Lina and her husband Ryan Chiodo are very active in the Naples real estate market and enjoy remodeling and selling homes in their spare time. Rochelle has been organizing and changing spaces for the better for as long as she can remember. Rochelle specializes in staging, remodeling, and organization. She truly believes that at any price point you can make your space beautiful and optimally functional. With a team of home stagers and our interior designer, Simplify Home Staging can provide everything from the smallest redesign to the largest stage.
