"For every minute spent in organizing, an hour is earned."
Everyone loves the idea of an organized, perfectly decorated home. The industry of home beautification is a booming one. We all enjoy a great remodel show, a DIY idea on Pinterest, or a magazine of the most elegant homes in America. But a professionally staged house on a magazine cover simply isn’t realistic for the typical home. Real life can get messy.
I love the idea of the minimalistic lifestyle, but I’ve seen the inside of too many jumbled cupboards to tout those ideals to the average person. I’ve spent many a midnight-hour color coordinating, alphabetizing, decorating, and rearranging my things. I understand that, to the average person, organizing is about as relaxing as a root canal. But to me it’s more peaceful than yoga.
My greatest love as an organizer is giving the gift of time to my clients. By pursuing my passion, I am able to give them time to pursue theirs. An orderly, creative space reduces stress, provides inspiration, and promotes joy. I’ve worked in everything from the spotless designer home to borderline hoarder houses. Every home is different, and my job is not providing a false illusion of cookie-cutter perfection from a magazine. But rather, creating an orderly, working, organizational system for each unique household.
