Spruce up your home with these easy redesign ideas

Are You Ready For A New You This Year?

Let’s be truthful, clutter makes us feel crappy. That’s why, every year, after the big ball drops, oodles – oodles and oodles of us vow “this year we will get organized,” Fist pumps in the air, the family high-fiving each other. But, as days, weeks, and months go by and we resume our daily routines, the motivation to declutter tends to diminish. Perhaps your inner ‘neat freak’ merely needs the incentive to jump-start the organizing process.

Do you have too much clutter lying around? Do you have tripping hazards? such as tripping over toys in the middle of the night. Nevertheless, clutter causes many internal problems which – although less obvious than the Lego maze spread across your family room floor – are quite impactful on your life. 

Putting in the effort of getting organized, especially if this organization extends to multiple areas of your life, can help reduce stress and anxiety levels long term by requiring less last-minute scrambling in a variety of directions in everyday situations. It can also feel empowering, so you can experience new situations as “exciting” rather than “stressful.”

HEALTH BENEFITS OF BEING ORGANIZED:

*Boost your energy and productivity

*Reduce stress & anxiety

*Sleep better

*Lose weight

*Improve your financial health

Clutter happens to all of us at one time or another and regaining control over the chaos can be challenging. Fortunately, science has shown getting organized has so many health benefits. Making small changes and successive improvements in one area can lead to positive effects in other areas. For example, less stress means a better night’s sleep. This just might be the motivation you need to kick your organizing goals into high gear.

Check out the three Organize & Coach Packages that are available now. 

Make 2023 the year you get yourself organized. 

The 3 Organize & Coach Packages:

  1. ADD, ADHD, Chronic Disorganization, Hoarders, Clutter-Bugs Coaching

 I have focused my organize + coachwork on busy professionals that have struggled with chronic disorganization throughout their whole life. My clients and I work together to understand their challenges and to identify, and strategize along with learning new skills and habits.

Chronic Disorganization Fees
  • $75 / hour 60 – 90 – 180 minutes sessions

  1. Walk & Talk Strategy

A 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 hour Walk & Talk Strategy Session will provide clarity and a written step-by-step strategy for getting organized. We begin with an interview and an examination of the spaces of concern, then continue with an evaluation of various organizing options and product recommendations (if needed). I can provide a sketch of the future layout as part of this package and would also be pleased to advise you on how to work with an assistant or temporary help in order to achieve your organizing goals.

Walk & Talk Fees
  • Individuals, non-profits, small businesses — $75/hour plus expenses
  • Corporations — $100/hour plus expenses

3. The Organizing Operation

I’ll sort through the clutter, create simple systems designed to your style and specifications, and replace the chaos with a pleasing functional, clean & tidy space.

  • Have a deadline?
  • Not productive or frustrated by your desk, filing system or office?
  • Overwhelmed with household storage areas, home office, or the so-called guest room?

What Are You Doing This Weekend?

Placement over Purchase Redesign

Imagination is as valuable as a big budget when it comes to transforming your home. 

Below is a list of how I can help you with your Redesign Project.

Room Redesign:

  1. We start off with a tour of the space/room to be redesigned
  2. We assess the accessories and decor within the space
  3. I prefer “placement over purchase” – it’s going shopping in your own home
  4. We put together a plan of action that can be started immediately
  5. If we need to purchase any items (paint, brushes, etc) we’ll do it before the project gets started
  6. We will start with removing all items from the space
  7. I do a deep clean of the space
  8. We start with our plan of putting items in their new homes
  9. We assess the space to see if it reflects the purpose and style we are achieving for the space
  10. Finalize with finishing touches to make the space your own

What room should you redesign next?

****************************************************************

Grace Notes:

  1. Use what you have decorating is easy and very economical and smart! The biggest thing holding us back is ourselves! We sometimes need to think out of the box a little and be willing to take a chance and learn something new.

     2. First of all it is most important to know which things in your home will look great used in new and fresh ways and which items won’t. This will be different for each of us.

     3. Here’s a rule of thumb from the Pros, the larger the item and the more of a focal point it is the harder it is to use if it is outdated or worn out. If it doesn’t fit into the style you’re after, get rid of it or move it to a new place where it can be centerstage.

     4. Paint is my “magic” of choice when it comes to updating and refreshing decor in my home I want to give a new life to! A chair, clocks, a table, a pillow (yup!), legs of soft furnishings, curtains, buffets, garden stools, mirrors, coat racks, and more! 

   5. How about taking a piece of furniture or an accent from one room to another? I do this a lot! Especially with accent tables and chairs. I did this method with some lamps I have had for a while, my husband commented on the new lamps – I said “no, we have had them for over ten years, they’re just in a new HOME”.

Spruce up your home for free with these easy redesign ideas.

1. TURN A STOOL INTO A SIDE TABLE. – Repurpose a seat into a handy stand, perfect for pulling up alongside a sofa or easy chair. Try one on its own, or cluster a few (even varied heights work). And remember less is more!

2. CHANGE YOUR CHAIRS. – Matching dining sets can feel humdrum over time. Trade a couple of seats from the kitchen with ones in the dining room.

3. TAKE ADVANTAGE OF OPEN SHELVES. – Pull out your pretty pitchers or patterned plates and arrange them to be admired.

4. REARRANGE LAMPS AND SHADES. – Swap a bedside lamp with one from your desk or the living room, or simply switch the shades for a different look.

5. REDO A WHOLE ROOM. – Play around with your furniture configuration—reposition a sofa, rotate a rug, or try dividing the room with an open-backed bookcase or storage unit. 

6. THINK CREATIVELY. – Use a glass jar as a vase, group ottomans as a coffee table, or try a pretty basket to hold a plain planter.

7. RE-STYLE YOUR BOOKSHELF. – Since messy shelves can make an entire room look disorganized, pretty yours up.

9. BRING OUTDOOR FURNISHINGS INSIDE. – Wicker, wrought iron and decorative aluminum furniture can create a garden-, coastal-, beach- or cottage-themed space inside.

10. ARRANGE UNIQUE TABLESCAPES. – Design mini-vignettes on tables, mantels, or buffets with keepsakes, from china to figurines. “There’s no point in keeping interesting items if no one ever sees them.

Redesign is the art of using existing items in a space to give it a fresh, new, designer look generally without having to buy a thing.

Are You A Person “Stuck”?

Do I need a coach?

The human body and brain are extraordinarily strong. They can withstand more physical and mental pain than you could envision.

So, you have this naturally given survivor mechanism where you will always find a way and remedy but, no solution without external help.

We are often trapped in our own behavior patterns with unconscious approaches that have our lives running on autopilot. 

To unveil new habits, ideas, and inspiration – a lifestyle coach can be valuable.

How do I know if coaching is right for me?

There are different views, perspectives, and outlooks and so are various coaching styles. If you’re struggling with a situation and finding it hard to have peace with that situation – ask yourself “is it the situation or the way I view the situation?” Simply asking yourself to look internally for thought, to be open to what could be, shows that coaching might be a good fit for you.

Am I worth the cost?

Making an investment in yourself and shifting your mindset will give you more benefits, along with insight than you can imagine.

*How much would you pay to create Peace of Mind?

*What are you willing to do to create a lifestyle that generates a feeling of love and support while spending time with what is most important to you?

*How much would it be worth to live in spaces that are functional, purposeful, and stylish?

There are so many advantages and opportunities for growth in weekly hands-on organizational coaching sessions, homework, worksheets, tools & resources, live workshops, and events like Mindful Walks, Wine & Redesign to name a few – along with a customized journey down the pathways to your new lifestyle.

A resourceful lifestyle coach will bring results much quicker, with less suffering towards your long-desired goals.

Are you ready to invest in yourself?
