Meet Erin Eifler

Today we’d like to introduce you to Erin Eifler.

Hi Erin, we’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
I was born and raised in San Diego and graduated from San Diego State University. I began my professional career in the hospitality and events industry designing corporate and social events and realized that my true passion was interior design. I began working with a great San Diego interior design company and helped run its staging division. I quickly realized I wanted to branch out and do this on my own full time. My father, who is an entrepreneur, suggested I start my own staging and design business. With my family’s support, I started Native Habitat & Design in 2015. I could have never imagined that I would have grown as quickly as we have, but I have surrounded myself with an incredible team that helps me run and operate. To date, we have done over 900 stagings in San Diego and started designing AirBnBs in 2020.

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
Starting your own business comes with its own set of challenges that you learn to navigate with each step. I never imagined the amount of work that goes into managing full-time employees, running and operating a warehouse full of inventory, or I have been really blessed with the clients I have had over the years and the majority of my clients have been rocking with me since day one. The staging industry is directly affected by the local real estate market but we are lucky that the last few years in San Diego have been so strong.

As you know, we’re big fans of you and your work. For our readers who might not be as familiar what can you tell them about what you do?
Since I was born and raised here in San Diego, I have a deep understanding of each of the iconic neighborhoods throughout the county. Having this knowledge helps guide me creatively in how I design and style each of my stagings and what will eventually appeal to buyers looking in the various areas throughout San Diego.

Our versatility in inventory and thoughtful designs allow me to create everything from cozy cottages in Kensington to sprawling estates in the north county all the way down to modern lofts downtown.

What makes you happy?
We strive to create a unique look that is personal to each home. We love when our stagings compliment the home and how that aids in the home are feeling quickly!
