A new beginning! Welcome to our revised website.

Be Inspired!

You organize to become more efficient. You shed to get unstuck!

Organizing gives you access to what’s most important to you. Shedding is a process for discovering what is most important to you.

It is possible to get organized without getting rid of anything. It’s impossible to shed without letting things go!

How to detect clutter: Does your closet feel stagnant? Does it make you feel guilty or overwhelmed or burdened? Does it deplete your energy?

IT’S CLUTTERED.

~~J. Morgenstern [“The guru of putting lives in order”]

Cleaning up and organizing can inspire thoughts of a new way to look at your closet, room, or area and opens up a whole new path to change. Inspiration might be a room you see in a magazine or just one section of a room. How about a combination of colors that might inspire you? The use those colors in things that surround you. The bold colors of small appliances for your kitchen could start you thinking in a whole new way. Use your neutrals for the big things and bring “pop” into a room with new color. It could be nature’s blending of colors that can be the beginning of a whole new scheme. What you select is your own unique look which works with the way you live, work and play.

By the Book

Your bookshelves can be the highlight of a room when you put some thought into using them as a decorating element. We are used to placing books of similar heights together but how about using color to organize them. Try arranging by color, dark to light. Or standing some up while others can rest flat on the shelves. Add in a few new photographs, small accessories, and a few whimsical mementos and you can have a new look and add punch to your decorating scheme.

Hanging Out in Your Closet

You spend a lot of money on your clothes, so they should hang well in your closets. What will make that work? You need the correct hanger!

  • Hangers that are wood and curved are perfect for suits.
  • Cedar hangers help repel pests such as moths and absorb excess moisture,
  • Padded hangers are for delicate knits, evening wear and special outfits and
  • Multiple and tiered hangers work well when space is at a premium.
  • Colorful tubular hangers are useful for designating types of clothing
  • Multi-tiered pants hangers help sort out scarves and belts.

It is a great feeling when your closet “lines” up with all the same height hangers.

Want a different look for your cabinets without the replacement expense? Just change the hardware! There are so many options out there whether you shop online or in stores. You can find anything from animals and human forms to flowers or colored glass. This need not apply only to your kitchen, but to any other room where you have cabinets – a bathroom, family room, or home office.
