Michael is passionate about reorganization and decorating. He helped me declutter and organize my closets, living room, kitchen as well as my art supplies and studio room. Art can be hard to organize for someone without context but Michael worked with me to understand my needs well and customized every idea. He is a pleasure to work with and took great care and thought in setting up my home as if it were his own.
I am needing to upgrade and review my wardrobe to increase my level of professionalism. I called on Madison for her help in going through my closet with me. The plan was to see what I might no longer need and to determine how appropriate my current clothing is for my job. We really covered a wide range of topics: She discussed with me the 4 color harmony system, her guess as to what my season was and a book that would give me the specifics regarding both color and even appropriate styles for each season. We reviewed each article of clothing to determine how much I liked it and wore it similar to the techniques Madison adheres to from Kondo's THE MAGIC OF TIDYING UP and whether it should be kept or donated. She developed a system whereby I put together a 24 hour pile for donation so I could really think about what I wanted and not feel any pressure to disgard or to disgard clothing too quickly. She offered the name of a designer who designed high end clothing similiar to the styles I already enjoy wearing and she sent links to that designer. She suggested I work with a free personal stylist at up to 3 of my local department stores explaining to me how best to work with them. She researched and located a well known city consultant for me to use as a resource if or in addition to the retail agents. We spent about 2.5 hours with few breaks and I learned that I could upgrade my current clothing simply by accessorizing more completely and what types of simple scarves and jewelry might be recommended or that I could discuss with a personal shopper. Although Madison is not a personal shopper she has decades of experience having had her own colors "done", having taken many seminars on "dressing for success" and years of personally networking with other business people. She has also pointed out that we've gone from a dress for success orientation to a significantly more casual orientation and yet professionalism is still important and can be achieved by weight of fabrics and accessories. She pointed out that just a few additional pieces like "real business pants vs jeans" could make all the difference so I didn't have to replace everything in my closet. She is fashion conscious and also budget oriented. What I enjoyed most about working with her is her positive disposition and her obvious passion for what she does. She has very strong detail orientation, high energy, a fabulous sense of humor and a real interest in my point of view. I really appreciate her ability to quickly find appropriate resources and websites for further research. I also have also witnessed her working on others clients and decluttering an entire floor to closet assembly and she is completely amazing. I highly recommend her for any project in the realm of wardrobe assessing & advising, decluttering, organizing, packing / unpacking and beyond. She will provide you tons of information and inspiration. Thank you, Madison! Your very satisfied helper & client, Megan Schmitz
The Tidy Spaces team exceeded all expectations in their mission to help me declutter and organize the following areas in my home: a spare bedroom and closet, patio storage closet, beneath the stairs storage space, and kitchen cabinets and drawers. Working with Patricia and Giovanna was a delight from start to finish. After a free consultation, these ladies arrived back at my place a few days later, perfectly prepared with a plan and materials in hand. They worked efficiently, communicated well, and we're flexible. When finished, I was more than pleased with the results. As for their fee, it was completely reasonable. In fact I think it is the best money I have ever spent on a home improvement project. I highly recommend this fresh, innovative team and will call them again.
I needed help desperately to get my house ready for visitors at the end of May. I received several quotes but they were all skeptical about being able to finish the job within the tight deadline I have. I'm so glad I called Karen. She came in, assessed what needed to be done (organizing, declutter, cleaning) and she offered her services on the spot. She may be small in stature but she has a huge caring heart and a great sense of humor. My house is beautiful now thanks to Karen and it hasn't looked this good in over eight years. Karen is professional and personable, just who I needed to help with my huge project. She did an outstanding job and I am going to hire her to help me maintain my beautiful space.
The clutter in my life has been paralyzingly and oppressive. I never thought that I would be able to live a clutter free life. Jane Marie is one of a kind! She has helped me transform spaces in my house to feel calm and inviting. She is truly a professional who understands the KM art of tidying and decluttering. Jane Marie is supportive and patient as you go through your belongings deciding whether each item sparks joy. She will help you release the hold on the things that need to go. Professional, sensitive, and patient! I highly recommend Jane Marie as she is fully committed to the KM art of tidying and decluttering!!!
I recently hired Lien to help my preteen kids declutter and reorganize all of their stuff that had piled up in our family room, craft room and front hall. We are super delighted with how it went: both the process and the product. Not only did Lien gently encourage the kids to get rid of the things they didn't need, she also helped them to find—and label—a place for the things they want to keep. As a result, they now know where to find everything and are very motivated to keep their spaces neat and organized. And our house is much more pleasant to be in! The kids enjoyed the whole process so much that we hired her again to help them purge and organize their bedrooms, with the same wondeful results. I highly recommend Lien’s services: she's a miracle worker!
Monique has practical advice and wasn't precious about the process of decluttering like with Kon Mari, where you are supposed touch every item and decide if it brings you joy. I'm not knocking it, it's a beautiful concept if you have the time. Monique was able & willing to run with some organization & sorting while I worked, and then helped me make decisions and move on. We had 3 sessions and the last was focused on the kitchen & systems I can put in place to keep order around the house.
We hired Barb twice to help make our live/work loft feel more like a family home after my baby was born. She helped us declutter and suggested beautiful and functional storage pieces and other furniture to buy, and showed us how we could lay it out in our space. As a visual person, I appreciated the product sheets and floor plans she provided us to help us visualize how they could fit in our home.
Dolores is an organizing wizard! She helped me declutter and purge a mountain of things from a second room that was starting to feel like a storage unit (of items collected over the past 5 years!). After actively (and very kindly) listening to my gripes and goals for the room, she set a strategy for purging, which made the whole process incredibly efficient and much more bearable. We got through a huge storage closet full of sports equipment, arts & crafts materials, and many file boxes of documents in just a few hours. She was a great coach who helped me overcome some of the sentimental humps that got in the way of purging. Before we even began, she could see how things should flow in the room. I highly recommend working with Dolores not only for her skill, but also for her sense of calming confidence to help you reach your goals in your space.
Debbie helped me declutter my house and office and not only was the outcome fantastic -- the process was a good one. I had not known what the issue was, I thought it was that I didn't know how to organize all the paper and things I had. It turned out the underlying issue was that I was keeping too much paper. That was a huge aha! She helped me fill up a giant recycling bin and put signs all over my office saying -- when in doubt throw it out. I highly recommend Debbie!
I had the pleasure of working with Terapan to help me organize my home office. He was very professional and helpful from the start. He explained the process of what we needed to accomplish very throughly and he listened very carefully to my needs and how I wanted the space to feel. He is a joy to work with and I am so happy with how the space turned out and the system we put in place for all my paper work. We are currently in the process reorganizing my closets and a guest room redo. I can already say I am so excited for how it is turning out. Decluttering my life with Terapan was one of the best things I ever did! Thank you Terapan for helping my home look & feel so beautiful :)
Debra, the 'Declutter Diva' came into my acquaintance when I was in dire need of some help to prepare for a major office and closet rehab.15 kitchen bags full of donations later we are closing in on the the finale of that project. It is really exciting and it would of been beyond difficult to tackle all of this on my own. Debra is punctual, in all ways dependable and extremely thorough. I have happily hired her to do additional jobs organizing and cleaning up my life. :) Debra has been very patient with me while we work together on the culling of my wares. She is objective, nonjudgemental and thoughtful about my privacy. On top of all of her skills, 'Debra the Declutter Diva' is a delightful person. Can't say enough good 'stuff'. NaL
For years, we knew we needed to declutter and reorganize our house, but we kept telling ourselves that we should just do it ourselves - but It had been years and we still hadn’t done it. So, We hired Adroit Interiors to help us de-clutter our apartment and help us reorganize and rearrange our entire house - and it was 110% worth it! We have been bragging about their work to all our friends, and have fallen newly in love with our apartment. Having all of this get completed with experts’ help and direction was such a huge relief. We are so much happier in our space now and so glad we worked with them. Michela and Jasmine helped us remove over 300 lbs of junk and clutter. Because they took care of making sure things were sustainably donated, recycled, or otherwise responsibly disposed of it was a stress- and worry-free experience for us. They were amazing at helping us work through not just the physical process of gathering, sorting, and removing things, but they also were amazing at helping us see things clearly and feel good about the process even though it can be surprisingly emotional to eliminate clutter you’ve had for a decade. Michela and Jasmine helped reorganize and better use our space. My wife and I now have an amazingly well-organized closet! My wife wears many more of her clothes than she used to and puts together more outfit combinations than before because she can see all her clothes now. Keeping it clean has been so easy now that they’ve given us such a well-designed setup. When designing her new layout/organization system, they took into account our own personalities and habits to make sure the system we are set up with was one that has been easy to maintain. During the process, Adroit also helped rearrange several of our rooms. They created 3D renderings of various layouts and showed us what was possible with our existing furniture and helped us source new pieces, as well as putting to use items that had been languishing in storage. By the end of our time with Adroit we had so much faith in their abilities that we let them reorganize our entire kitchen without us being involved. No exaggeration, the way they put things away is so well thought-out and considered that when we can’t remember the new home for something, we can easily figure it out because things just make sense now. Cooking and keeping the kitchen clean has become much easier thanks to them. We can not recommend them highly enough - Adroit Interiors lifted a huge weight off our shoulders and we are so much happier in our space than we were before.
Prompt, professional and helped accomplished exactly what I needed to do. I would highly recommend this service.
Jiliane is amazing!!! She is the ultimate organizer, with zero judgement! She does the shopping for storage ideas (with your style in mind), and returns the items that didn't work. She takes all the donatables, and brings back the receipt for tax deducting! What started out as organizing my home office blossomed into my entire townhome's "hot spots". She is sharp, efficient, professional, and does an outstanding job! She has helped me declutter my home, and I was totally surprised by the physical relaxation that resulted. I hadn't realized how stressed my home was making me, and Jiliane helped me get out from under that oppressive feeling. On top of that, because of her passion for her craft, she actually made organizing fun! Fan for life!!!
