Katie has been our absolute saviour! We recently had our first child, and weeks later moved to a new property. Unfortunately, due to Covid and other reasons, the sale took much longer than expected. We were then faced with the momentous challenge of creating our new home, with bringing up a baby.
Our new property was livable, but needed care and attention from a professional. In addition, we were burdened with a large amount of clutter.
Katie started by consulting us by email and phone. During this process we expressed our hopes and dreams about our space, and Katie captured it all to a document. During our first in-person appointment at ours, Katie respectfully observed everything we owned, and we discussed further what we could achieve and in what time-frame. She was mindful of our budget in terms of prioritisation.
Katie created and presented a Powerpoint presentation (for us to keep), containing a plan for each room, and containing images of inspiration, as well as the existing space, and how to get it from A to B. It was all based on our original hopes and dreams, and colour schemes we like etc.
One thing we didn't expect is that Katie was extremely hands on. From the first appointment, we had seperated a gigantic amount of clutter into a "throw pile", a "sell pile" and a "donate pile". I was off to the charity shop with 5 bags of items the very next day!
Katie has been respectful of our limited budget and time, which has meant that we are working on our home one step at a time. However, even when we are not actively working, Katie emails and texts us to ask how it's going and whether we have made further progress. I've found this helpful as it keeps us focussed on the larger goal.
When you see examples of Katie's work, and how she puts her "lookbooks" together, and then how she is able to place artwork on walls, pick colour schemes, arrange furniture and the likes, you will instantly see her obvious talent. For someone like me, who struggles in this area, and with such personal importance placed on my home environment, it's well worth the investment.
