I travelled to beautiful Sunnyvale, TX this week.
My client has been in her new home for a few months. When the movers came, they placed furniture and items in the rooms they belonged in, and that’s where they have stayed.
Momma is busy with four children under 7! Neat Freak to her rescue!
The goals for today were the home office, and their daughter’s bedroom.
Upon entering the room, my eyes go everywhere, assessing and editing as I look.
There was a bookshelf under the window, next to the bookshelf. I knew immediately that it needed to be moved or taken out of the room.
Too much furniture in a room makes it appear small and cluttered.
Mom wanted it to stay for storage, so I turned it on it’s side and made a vertical bookshelf next to her desk.
We moved all the games to the hutch, nicely stored behind the doors. I then separated books and knickknacks to both hutch and bookcase, creating a lighter feel.
She has labeled boxes for all her items now. Doesn’t every girl need a box of tiaras?!!
I then turned my attention to the “corner of Barbies”. These needed to be moved out of the corner. Physical clutter makes the brain feel cluttered.
Mom wanted to use the extra linen closet for her daughter’s toy storage. Perfect!
I dumped all the Barbie and American Girl stuff out on the floor to sort. Sorting and throwing away any broken pieces.
I created a shelf for each category. All American Girl clothes and accessories are stored in that pretty red case.
All Barbie dolls are in one bin, all Barbie clothes and accessories are in another, and all Disney Character dolls in another.
Games that need adult supervision are on the top shelf.
And of course we made room for bath towels.
The room and closet now have form and function. Whenever she wants to play, she can take down a bin and play. Easy to clean up and easy to find.
All her dress up clothes are stored in a zipper bag under her bed!
Mom and Daughter were so pleased! Mom sent this video to me later that night. (sorry about the quality, it’s what I received). But listen to C’s excited comments!
Happy Mom, happy daughter, happy neat freak 😉
