Do I really need to throw anything out?
Everything in your space holds energy. Whether you want to believe it or not, your belongings have a positive or negative affect on you. Your possessions should be useful and/or loved.
When we go through your stuff it comes down to… Do you love it or use it, if not, you can lose it. I make it sound so simple but it can be a very emotional process. I will be there to help guide you through it.
Once we clear out all that doesn’t belong we can start the process of organizing.
How can I benefit from being organized?
Do you lose time looking for things?
Do you find yourself re-buying things you already own?
Do you find it hard to get and stay motivated when your stuff is in the way of your work?
It is a fact that if you are organized you save time, money and are less stressed.
Where do you need help getting organized?
CLOSET – After editing your closet and depending on the size/budget, we can get a few baskets and hanging shelves or redesign the entire closet for your personal needs.
KITCHEN - After purging all expired foods I'll come up with ideas using containers and baskets with labels. Plus drawer organizers and pull out drawers to make everything accessible and keeping items in site.
HOME OFFICE – I will come up with a filing system, storage and project lists that are made for you. Everyone works differently so each system is designed differently keeping your needs in mind.

STUDIO APARTMENTS – Using ergonomics to come up with a space that you love and you can easily eat, sleep and create in.

Why not let your space work for you?
Everything in your space can help you or hold you back. Feng shui is a Chinese philosophical system of harmonizing our human existence with our surrounding environment. We do this by using spatial arrangements and helping the flow of qi (energy). With the bagua map we can see what areas of your space effect the certain parts of your life. When you focus on what you want and set up your space with intention, good things start to happen to you.
How am I different from other interior decorators?
I find that interior decorating naturally correlates with everything else that I do. Through the process of decluttering and organizing, we work on a design plan that is right for you and your budget. I find most of my clients have pieces they want to keep and/or enhance. I create a space that you love because it is originally coming from a part you. I’m always on the lookout for interesting pieces while keeping my clients in mind.
“Christel’s sense of design is extraordinary and she has a gift for seeing the potential in any space, no matter how big or small. She took the place I lived and turned it into my home.”
