Process & Services
My organizing process revolves around the principle of interior styling. This means that your design sensibility and the aesthetics of your space are the primary inspiration for my work. At our initial consultation, we’ll discuss your design preferences, your influences, and your vision for your space. I want you to share in the process and look forward to being in that space when the project is complete. Even if the project is organizing your kitchen pantry, I want you to feel that the end result represents your unique style and taste. If the project is a wardrobe or closet, I will find a way to make your most treasured and often used pieces readily accessible and also to bring new life and visibility to pieces you may have forgotten. Interior styling is organization that inspires.
The initial consultation, conducted by phone or e-mail, is free. The consultation normally lasts about an hour. I will advise you of my standard rates and provide you with an estimate of the costs of your project. At the conclusion of the consultation, we’ll arrange a time for our first in-home session.
The in home session begins with sorting, and if needed, purging, items in the space to organized. This is ideally done with the supervision of the client, but I have a system in place when your hands on involvement is not possible. I will work with you or a designated party. None of your items will be disposed of without your explicit permission. Items will be sorted into the following categories: keep, donate, sell, fix, recycle, dispose. At the end of the first in home session you will feel great.
